 Before and After Porcelain Veneers

Before and After Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are used when you want to whiten and change the shape of your teeth.

The process involves removing a small layer of the front surface of your tooth then cementing a veneer onto the surface to make your tooth look the way you want.

At Dentists of Ivanhoe Central we offer two types of veneer options, Composite Resin veneers or Porcelain veneers.

More expensive and usually recommended to achieve the best resultLooks great but inferior to porcelain veneers.

Once your veneers are set you can continue eating and drinking normally, we recommend normal oral hygiene routine (brushing & flossing) is maintained in order to keep the veneers in optimum condition.

We may even recommend a splint or mouth guard to protect your veneers from grinding at night.

Please be advised that at Dentists of Ivanhoe Central we use a local laboratory and provide the highest quality of materials for your veneers. Call us now on (03) 9069 9810 or you can visit our clinic today at 4/8 Seddon St, Ivanhoe, VIC 3079, Australia
