Our Dentapex dentists in Sydney strongly believe that everyone should have access to high-quality dental health care whenever they need it. Therefore, we aim to make attaining premium dental care services easier and more affordable. At our dental clinic, we offer flexible payments plans for dental work. When it comes to cosmetic and general procedures, such as porcelain veneers, we understand that the price may seem daunting – often stopping potential patients from attaining their dream smile. Hence, we offer a range of dental financing options. This includes Afterpay, which allows you to make four interest-free instalments after the completion of your porcelain veneers procedure, and a National Dental Plan, which staggers payments over a timeframe. We are also proudly covered by private health insurance providers, including Medibank, Bupa, and CBHS.
Porcelain veneers are a durable and robust alternative to composite veneers.
They utilise thin shells of porcelain placed over the surface of the existing teeth to restore the natural appeal of your smile.
Dental porcelain veneers are a reliable cosmetic solution to various concerns, including aged teeth or veneers needing replacement, spaces, or gapped teeth, broken and badly chipped teeth, and permanently stained or discoloured teeth.
For a long-lasting smile that lasts for years to come, choose porcelain veneers from Dentapex today. Our team of professional cosmetic and general dentists will prepare your teeth properly for the porcelain veneers treatment and advise you on the appropriate steps throughout every stage of the procedure.
What Issues Can Dental Veneers Solve?
- Discoloured teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven or irregular teeth
Types of Veneers
- Porcelain: Porcelain will last between ten to fifteen years and help your teeth look shiny and bright.
- Composite: Composite resin is more affordable but may not last as long. They require more attention to oral hygiene and care, as well as more maintenance.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
The porcelain veneers procedure is reliable and non-invasive. We utilise a porcelain veneers process that requires three distinct steps before completion. This includes:
01 First Visit
The porcelain veneers treatment, just like most of our general and cosmetic procedures, begins with a personalised consultation session. During this time, you will have the opportunity to sit down with our dentists for a one-on-one discussion regarding aesthetic goals, your budget, lifestyle choices, oral health history, and more.
Your first visit may also include taking 3D scans and impressions of your teeth to determine the best treatment process for you. Our dentists will work hard to ensure a friendly environment for all patients.
02 Second Visit
Preparation And Temporary Veneers
Preparing your veneers is vital for ensuring they fit your mouth perfectly. During this process, we will fit temporary veneers over your teeth, which will give you a better idea of what the final product will look and feel like. If any changes are needed, we will make the necessary adjustments and design your veneers based on your feedback.
Once satisfied with the look of your new smile, we will take a scanned impression of the temporary veneers and recreate the design with porcelain.
03 Third Visit
Placement Of Porcelain Veneers
In your final visit, we will remove the temporary veneers from your mouth and place in the new permanent porcelain veneers. We will observe the porcelain veneers and figure out whether they need adjusting or if they are the perfect set for your teeth. Once approved and you are happy with the veneers, they will be securely bonded to your teeth using a UV curing light. We will then perform tests to ensure your bite, comfort, and speech are in optimal condition. Finally, you are ready to enjoy your new and rejuvenated smile.
THE BENEFITS OF VENEERS
There is a range of benefits attached to both porcelain and composite dental veneers. While deciding what type of dental veneers is right for you depends on various factors – including the severity of your dental issues, price, and the natural structure of your teeth, both will provide great results and a transformed smile.
An Orthodontics Alternative
Many orthodontic procedures can be daunting, excessive, and stressful. They can become massive commitments that are often time-consuming and complicated. Hence, porcelain veneers allow you to quickly and effectively correct minor aesthetic dental issues without the need for intensive procedures and treatments.
A Whiter Smile
If you suffer from heavy staining, teeth whitening treatments may not make a significant difference in the appearance of your teeth. Hence, for the best results that create a bright and youthful smile, choose porcelain veneers. We can help you achieve a whiter smile in just a few simple visits. Our tailor-made porcelain veneers will look and feel like a brand new set of teeth while improving the strength and functionality of your original set.
At Dentapex, our porcelain veneers are a long-lasting dental restoration option. They are custom-made and high-quality, with the ability to correct minor aesthetic issues. With the proper care and maintenance, our porcelain veneers will last for up to 25 years. When you require dental veneers for years to come, choose porcelain veneers from our dental clinic today.
Cosmetically Repair Teeth Simply And Easily For A Natural Appearance
Both porcelain and composite veneers are specially designed to fit the needs of the patient. Our custom-made dental veneers ensure attractiveness, functionality, and major cosmetic repairs. The application of dental porcelain veneers is simple and easy, meaning they allow for a reliable restoration treatment when wanting to restore the natural appearance of your teeth.
Minimally Invasive Procedure
Restoring the look of your teeth with dental veneers is less invasive than a range of other cosmetic dentistry treatments. The method of attaching your dental veneer to the surface of your natural teeth requires shaving off a small layer of the tooth’s front surface. The bonding will then occur using a special adhesive. Our dentists may make small adjustments in size or colour during this process to ensure your teeth have the most natural look and feel possible.
Permanent And Durable
Porcelain veneers are permanent replacements for real teeth and resist decay and staining for better performance and functionality. Dental porcelain veneers are non-porous, meaning they are extremely stain-resistant. However, the durability of your dental veneers will depend on what type of material they are made from – with porcelain veneers being more robust and stronger than traditional composite veneers.
Maintaining your dental veneers is a straightforward and easy process. Care for your veneers as you would a natural set of teeth. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing once, and continuing to maintain good oral health. Scheduling regular check-ups with your dentist and routine cleaning will also help your dental veneers last for as long as possible.
Perfect Fix For Enamel Loss
While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it can be easily worn out by highly acidic foods, vigorous tooth brushing, and gum disease. Once enamel wears away, it does not come back, and therefore, must be protected. With dental veneers, you can replace enamel that has already been lost and prevent any further enamel from disappearing.
