Dental veneers offered by Bonfire Dental include porcelain veneers and composite veneers
Are you looking for a way to improve the colour and shape of your teeth? Want a solution that will last longer than over-the-counter whitening? Veneers may be the solution you have been looking for.
What are dental veneers?
Bonfire Dental in Jindalee offer two types of veneers: porcelain and composite veneers. This treatment involves placing colour-matched dental material onto the teeth in your smile zone for improved shape and colour. The smile zone is the six upper and lower teeth visible when you smile.
There are two types of composite veneers. Direct composite veneers and indirect composite veneers.
These veneers can be applied in one appointment. The composite material is placed directly onto your teeth. Once it’s placed, a blue light is used to harden the veneer setting it in place.
Indirect composite veneers take two appointments. The first appointment is when an impression of your teeth is taken and sent to the lab. When the impressions are ready, you’ll come back for your second appointment and have the veneers bonded to your teeth.
Do you remove much tooth when placing veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin shell of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They are colour-matched to your natural teeth and take two appointments to place. These veneers are more durable and lasting than composite veneers.
The treatment process takes two appointments.
The first appointment involves taking impressions of your teeth and preparing the teeth for porcelain veneers. Once the teeth are prepared, temporary veneers are placed until you have your second appointment.
The second appointment is where your temporary veneers are removed and replaced with the porcelain veneers from the lab. Before these veneers are placed your Bonfire Dental dentist will ensure they fit well and look good before bonding them to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers can last up to 8 years, but this does depend on how well you look after your oral health.
