Sydney Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are a way for our clients to achieve a beautiful and bright smile. At Pitt Street Dental Centre, we make premium custom-made dental veneers in Sydney in the size, shape and colour that suits you.
As one of the top clinics in Sydney, we take pride in helping clients of all ages create natural-looking smiles that are made to last, using either porcelain or composite resin. Dr Michael Cai and his team have travelled the world to learn from the masters of veneers and cosmetic dentistry.
What are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer consists of a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin, which sits over individual teeth to create a custom shell.
Each dental veneer is custom-made for your needs; clients can add one dental veneer to their smile or change the appearance of a few teeth, without making the difference between the dental veneers and actual teeth overly obvious.
Dental veneers deliver an instant improvement to your teeth – they can change the colour, texture, shape, and even alignment of your smile, helping you to feel more confident about your pearly whites.
Prior to Getting Veneers
The best way to determine which option to choose is to speak with our cosmetic dentist. Don’t be afraid to discuss your expectations, anxieties, aspirations, and budget. We firmly believe in responsible aesthetics. The best option is always the one that best fits your specific needs.
Our dental professionals at Pitt Street Dental Centre recommend undergoing Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening first to brighten your natural teeth as veneers cannot be whitened with teeth whitening. Following teeth whitening, our dentists can work with you to create custom composite resin or porcelain veneers to enhance your smile permanently.
Porcelain vs. Composite – What’s the Difference?
When you have your consultation, our dentist will explain the benefits of both porcelain and composite veneers and advise on what’s right for you. But for those who want to do their research beforehand – what exactly is the difference between composite and porcelain veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are semi-transparent shells that are custom made to fit over the face of each of your teeth. Created in a dental laboratory, veneers are permanently bonded to your natural teeth for a durable and low maintenance solution.
To create each porcelain veneer in Sydney, Pitt St Dental Centre has handpicked two of Sydney’s most skilled local ceramists with local laboratories; we pride ourselves on working with highly skilled ceramists who produce veneers in Australia of the highest quality.
Porcelain veneers are typically completed in two appointments. In your first appointment, your dentist cleans, prepares and makes an impression of your teeth. After this, your dentist and specialist ceramist create your dental veneers, which are customised for you. Once they are created, you will require a return appointment to set your new veneers in place.
On the other hand, Composite Veneers are applied to the surface of your teeth as a composite material. The material is then sculpted to the desired shape and set in place using light activation systems – much like a composite filling – taking generally one appointment.
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Dental veneers are ideal for clients who have overall healthy teeth and gums, but are looking for aesthetic changes. They are a seamless solution that offers a straightforward, low-maintenance and long-lasting way to achieve a flawless smile and enhances your entire appearance.
For clients who have good dental care, porcelain veneers can last 15+ years, so keeping a high level of dental care after getting your dental veneers should be a priority.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to fix a wide variety of dental issues, which include:
- Gaps between teeth
- Missing teeth
- Chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth
- Stained or discoloured teeth
While porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, you still need to care for them as you would natural teeth. Given proper care and maintenance, you can they will last you for years to come.
Take care of your porcelain veneers the same way you take care of your natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss daily to reduce plaque and tartar buildup. Also, make sure you schedule regular dental checkups with our hygienists. This easy maintenance will help you keep the natural white shine in your veneers so you can enjoy a beautiful healthy smile. Since veneers are non-porous, they are able to resist permanent stains and cavities better than your natural tooth enamel. In other words, dental veneer maintenance is minimal.
Porcelain veneer procedures are less invasive than other types of dental restorations, such as dental crowns. The veneers can be as thin as 0.3mm and sometimes no preparation of the tooth structure is required at all.
