Veneers can rejuvenate and reinvigorate your appearance and may create a straighter, whiter, more perfect smile and effectively restore your smile to its former beauty. Dr Nick Sheptooha has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry, and as such has restored many smiles with dental veneers in Brisbane. This treatment is generally preferred over other more lengthy options as they:
- Provide an immediate solution
- Conceal all dental flaws
- Are resistant to staining
- Enhance the overall smile composition
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells (about as thin as a fingernail) that are expertly crafted, shaped and bonded over your prepared teeth for a heightened smile aesthetic. Porcelain is one of the most durable, strong and sturdy dental materials available, and actually mimics the strength of your tooth enamel! Porcelain is also stain resistant and can be colour-matched to the exact shade of your teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking new smile.
Porcelain veneers can combat a host of dental problems…
Are you unhappy with the look of your smile because of damage, discolouration or simply too much gum tissue? Our porcelain veneers are designed to conceal dental flaws such as:
- Permanently stained teeth that have been discoloured by coffee, tea, antibiotics, fluoride and cigarette smoking.
- Filling gaps (diastemas) between teeth and even eliminating black triangles caused by gum recession- veneers can be shaped to give you the smile you want.
- Correcting broken or crooked teeth – veneers will cover damaged or crooked teeth and transform them into a natural looking smile.
Porcelain veneers are typically placed on the front teeth (or other teeth in the smile zone), through a simple process of bonding. Often, only minimal preparation is needed and the results are immediately effective and long-lasting.
How do I take care of my new smile?
The great thing about porcelain veneers is they are generally easy to maintain! Just brush and floss your new smile as you would your natural teeth (brush twice daily, floss once daily), and avoid eating hard foods such as chewing on ice as this may damage your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting our practice every six months so we can help you maintain your veneers and thoroughly assess them to ensure there are no chips or breakages.
