Veneers in Burwood

Common imperfections in your teeth, such as chipped, misaligned, smaller-than-average, gapped, or severely stained teeth, may make it difficult for you to show your smile. At Burwood Dental Centre, we provide a wide range of options to improve your smile. Dental veneers may be a good option to restore your smile and confidence.

A Good Option

This method involves the minimum amount of tooth loss. Most often done for cosmetic reasons, they can change the colour, size, shape, or length of your teeth, improving your appearance. These thin, tooth-coloured shells attach to the front surface of teeth to strengthen the teeth and improve their appearance. The top front 6-8 teeth are the most common ones addressed.

Often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials, these appliances are permanently bonded to your teeth. Made of a highly durable material, they generally last around 10-15 years. They reduce discolouration and resist staining, and only require regular maintenance. Porcelain is more expensive than composite, but it’s more durable.

What to Expect

Your consultation will include an examination of the teeth in question, as well as a discussion of your goals for the procedure. Decisions will be made on the shade desired and the shape of the tooth.

A mould is made of the teeth involved and sent to the lab for production. After about a week, we receive your appliance and make sure they’re the right fit, shape, and colour match for your natural teeth. If all is well, they’ll be permanently cemented to your teeth.

If the teeth are extremely crowded or not in a good position, alignment might be needed before the veneers can be placed. For most people, they’re a good option for a brighter smile.
