Porcelain Veneers in Canberra

Veneers at Shine DentistsEnhance the look of your smile by masking stains, closing spaces, straightening out misalignments and covering damaged or broken teeth with porcelain veneers at Shine Dentists. A veneer is an extremely thin, tooth-coloured material that is bonded directly to natural teeth. It’s completed over two visits and allows you to see before and after pictures prior to beginning the procedure.

After a consultation to determine that veneers are suitable for you, we’ll begin the two-appointment process.

Preparation

You’ll be given a local anaesthetic to numb your teeth and gums. A small amount of tooth is trimmed to ensure room for the veneers. Then, a mould is taken of your teeth with putty so our technician can match your veneers to your bite. Temporary veneers may be available while yours are being fabricated. Meanwhile, your moulds are used to handcraft your new smile, taking 2-3 weeks in total.

Fitting

Temporary veneers will be taken off and your new ones will be placed using a paste that will allow for adjustments as you see fit. Once the perfect placement is determined, the tooth surface is prepared to receive a dental adhesive. The veneers are them permanently cemented.

Keeping Your Veneers in Top Shape

Veneers are long-lasting provided that you take proper care of them. Good oral hygiene is essential, so you must brush and floss twice per day. Biyearly dental examinations are of vital importance. Avoid habits that can damage your teeth, such as biting pens or pencils, opening up bottles with your teeth or biting your nails.
