PORCELAIN VENEERS

WHAT ARE
Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a highly sought after cosmetic dental procedure that can completely transform the appearance of your smile. They are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, creating a natural-looking, seamless finish that can enhance the colour, shape, size, and overall appearance of your teeth. Porcelain veneer treatment is a great option for those who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile, and they can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic issues such as stained, chipped, crooked, or misshapen teeth. With dental veneers at Dentists of Ivanhoe, you can finally achieve the beautiful, radiant smile you’ve always wanted.

We believe that it is important that our patients are well-informed and understand the process before making any decision.

DIGITAL IMPRESSIONS

The second step is to take digital impressions through a combination of high-quality photographs, dynamic videos, and a digital scan of the mouth. Using advanced intraoral scanners, a comprehensive 3D model of the patient’s smile is created. This digital information is then integrated into Digital Smile Design, allowing both the dentist and the patient to visualise and collaboratively design the desired smile.

MOCK-UP DESIGN

Once we have the digital scan, we will create a ‘mock-up’ and approve the final design. This step is crucial to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the final result and that it meets your expectations. This step will take around 30 minutes.

PREPARING YOUR TEETH

The next step is to prepare your teeth to accommodate your veneers. This includes removing a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. We will then place temporary veneers to protect your teeth. This step will take between 2-3 hours.

REVIEW & ADJUST

After the temporary veneers are in place, the next step is to thoroughly review and adjust the process. Your dentist will meticulously assess the fit, alignment, and overall aesthetics of the temporary veneers, ensuring a detailed examination to optimal results.

INSERTION

Finally, we will insert your porcelain veneers. This step will take between 1.5-2 hours. Once the veneers are in place, we will make sure that they fit properly and that your bite is correct.

Throughout the entire process, our experienced dentist will be there to guide and assist you, ensuring that you are comfortable and satisfied with the outcome. You will leave our dental clinic in Ivanhoe with a beautiful, radiant smile that you'll be proud to show off.
PORCELAIN VENEERS VS COMPOSITE VENEERS

MATERIAL

Porcelain veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain, while composite veneers are made from a tooth-coloured composite resin material.

DURABILITY

Porcelain veneers are known for their durability and can last for many years. They are less likely to chip, crack or discolour over time. Composite veneers, on the other hand, have a shorter lifespan and may need to be replaced or repaired more frequently.

AESTHETICS

Porcelain veneers are known for their natural-looking appearance and ability to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. Composite veneers, while also natural-looking, can appear less translucent and more opaque compared to porcelain veneers.

PREPARATION

Porcelain veneers may require a significant amount of tooth enamel to be removed, while composite veneers require minimal preparation.

COST

You might be wondering how much porcelain veneers cost. Porcelain veneers tend to be more expensive than composite veneers due to the cost of the materials and the more complex preparation process.

PATIENT CHOICE

Ultimately, the choice between porcelain and composite veneers will depend on the patient's individual needs, goals, and budget. Both options can be effective in improving the appearance of your smile, but it's important to consider the pros and cons of each before making a decision.
