How Do Dental Veneers Work?

It’s pretty safe to say we all have different teeth. Whether they are stained, chipped, gapped, filled, implanted or perfect, our teeth can tell a story of who we are and how we live our lives. 

That’s why many of us like our teeth to be healthy and glowing in structure and appearance.

At Duncraig Village Dental, a leading dental surgery in Perth, we offer a range of services to help improve tooth appearance and structure; and one such service is the application of dental veneers.

What is a veneer?

Dental veneers, also commonly known as porcelain veneers or teeth veneers, are a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over teeth. Dental veneers act almost like a false fingernail, bonded to the surface of the tooth to provide a natural, attractive appearance.

Do I need a veneer?

Dental veneers can be used for a range of different applications and conditions. Whether this is for gaps between teeth, broken or chipped teeth, oddly shaped or misaligned teeth, or stained and discoloured teeth, veneers can be designed to improve the strength of a tooth, match the colour of your existing smile or used to brighten your teeth.

One of the benefits of veneers is that they not only make teeth look healthy and natural, but are also a discerning and aesthetically pleasing alternative to braces, crowns and bridges, and require very little preparation.

How do veneers work?

Veneers are bonded to the tooth using a composite resin colour matched to your veneer and tooth. A slight layer of enamel is removed to roughen the tooth before the veneer is attached.

The general veneer process normally takes two appointments. During your initial consultation appointment, one of our experienced dental veneer specialists will inform you of whether veneers are the right option for you, and will create and mould a provisional veneer for trial before the final veneer is perfected and attached to your tooth.

Are there any side effects of veneers?

Not really. Veneers are designed to improve the strength, durability and appearance of your teeth. However, as veneers are bonded to your teeth, the process is irreversible and can cause some sensitivity – therefore demanding the rigorous expertise and experience that only dental surgeries like DV Dental can deliver. You can rest assured knowing our team of specialists will make sure your veneer is expertly designed and applicated for long-term positive results.

How much does it cost?
