Get porcelain veneers in Perth and enjoy a sensational sparkling smile
A porcelain veneer, also referred to as a composite veneer, is a thin wafer of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth to give the tooth a whole new look.
Porcelain veneers conceal a range of imperfections such as crookedness, discolouration, chips and gaps. Whatever colour you choose for your veneers, it will remain the same colour for the duration it is in your mouth.
Veneers mimic natural teeth in colour, translucency and surface texture. They are highly resistant to wear and do not discolour. Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to restore your smile, and our professional dentists are Perth's composite veneer experts.
With porcelain veneers, you can have the smile you want in just one or two visits.
What is the procedure to get porcelain veneers?
The teeth are prepared by removing a small amount of the front surface of the tooth (about 0.5–1mm).
Utilising a state-of-the-art digital camera, a three-dimensional scan is taken of the preparation and a composite veneer is designed on computer.
The optical impression replaces a physical impression required in traditional procedures – no moulding clay or compounds are used.
The final veneer is produced by a high-precision milling machine which carves a highly durable ceramic restoration from a colour matched block of ceramic and is then bonded to a tooth or teeth.
What’s the difference between porcelain and composite veneers?
Composite veneers, as the name suggest, are made of a composite resin in a colour that closely resembles natural teeth. Bonded to your existing tooth and sculpted in place, these help to adjust the shape, size and colour of unsightly teeth.
Porcelain veneers on the other hand, are custom-made shells of very high strength porcelain that are bonded onto the front of your existing teeth. Expert cosmetic dentists use porcelain veneers to mask damaged, crooked, discoloured but otherwise healthy teeth.
