Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that easily slide over your teeth and perfect your smile by concealing stains, chips, or gaps. Porcelain veneers, which are an excellent alternative to crowns, bond to teeth for an extremely natural and long-lasting look. And porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite soft drinks, coffee, and tea without worrying about discoloring your new dazzling smile!

A Hollywood Smile

On your first visit to Unity Dental, our cosmetic dentist will discuss your options and whether porcelain veneers are right for you. On your second visit, our cosmetic dentist will take impressions of your teeth that the laboratory will use to produce custom-made porcelain veneers. We only use high quality Australian dental Laboratories.

The wafer-thin porcelain veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an esthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

Veneers can work as an alternative to minor orthodontics, but are not recommended in cases of severe crowding or misalignment of teeth or malocclusions. Customarily, veneers are preferable to full crowns when there is adequate remaining tooth structure to support the restoration. Veneers require less reduction of healthy tooth structure than full crowns, without compromising the periodontal or gingival health. It is a blend of art and science that enables a skilled practitioner to achieve a sensational effect.

Some facts you might want to know about Porcelain Veneers:

    • Since they require approximately .5mm of tooth reduction, porcelain veneers are NOT considered a reversible form of treatment.
    • Occasionally the preparation of a Porcelain Laminate Veneer does not require the use of a local anesthetic. However, for those patients that are particularly sensitive or anxious, a local anesthetic is advisable.
    • The laboratory time required for the fabrication of a Porcelain Laminate Veneer is approximately ten working days.
    • Due to the minimal amount of tooth reduction, it is usually not necessary to fabricate any type of temporary restoration. Should a temporary be needed, they can, in most circumstances, be made at the time of treatment.
    • Between your preparation visit and the insertion visit, you can expect some sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal and is due to the removal of a small portion of the enamel covering of the tooth. This sensitivity should disappear after the placement of your Porcelain Laminate Veneer.

    Your second visit, the insertion of your laminate, can be accomplished, once again , with or without local anesthetic. This visit is usually longer in length. The laminates are placed with a light sensitive resin which is hardened by using a special light.

    Once placed your laminates are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet. Porcelain has great crushing strength but poor tensile strength. Therefore, you should avoid anything that will tend to twist the laminate. Opening pistachio nuts with your teeth, chewing on bones or jelly apples is probably not a good idea. As with most things, common sense should prevail.

Maintenance of Your New Porcelain Veneers

    The maintenance of your Porcelain Laminate Veneer is relatively simple. A few suggestions, however, are in order:

    • Since they require approximately .5mm of tooth reduction, porcelain veneers are NOT considered a reversible form of treatment.
    • Occasionally the preparation of a Porcelain Laminate Veneer does not require the use of a local anesthetic. However, for those patients that are particularly sensitive or anxious, a local anesthetic is advisable.

    • Between your preparation visit and the insertion visit, you can expect some sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal and is due to the removal of a small portion of the enamel covering of the tooth. This sensitivity should disappear after the placement of your Porcelain Laminate Veneer.

    We hope that your Porcelain Laminate Veneers have fulfilled all of your esthetic goals. With proper home care and scheduled evaluation visits, they can provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come.
