Are you fed up with having a yellow tint on your teeth? Have traditional whitening treatments failed to yield the whiteness you wanted, or are your teeth too sensitive for such options?
In the modern world, many people have strikingly white teeth. For some, it is due to good genetics, gentle brushing and not eating certain foods. But, for the other 80%, it is due to attending their dentist for whitening or the fitting of dental veneers!
Many people have at least a basic knowledge of what is involved in having their teeth whitened, but are not 100% clear on what is involved in the fitting of dental veneers. As veneers are not part of the standard dental Coorparoo as whitening is, many dental patients are wary of having them fitted. But, as mentioned earlier, they offer an array of benefits which could not be achieved with other cosmetic procedures that are available from a dental Coorparoo Brisbane.
As mentioned before, many people are unable to have their teeth whitened using traditional oxidising gels due to dental sensitivity.
As porcelain veneers fit over your tooth like a false nail, they conceal the sensitivity causing holes in your enamel. So, once fitted, you will notice a reduction in the sensitivity of your teeth, allowing you to eat ice-cream and drink as much hot chocolate as you want, without worrying about any twinges! Perfect!
Many cosmetic treatments which are dental at Coorparoo are accompanied by long waiting times; dental implants take up to 6 months to fuse to your jaw and invisible aligners take up to 9 months to straighten the teeth. But, porcelain veneers can be fitted to your teeth in one sitting! With the use of dental cement, your dentist will be able to fit the veneers in less than 2 hours, allowing you to walk out of the surgery with a brand new smile. Brilliant!
The enamel on teeth is a bit porous, hence why so many people have stubborn staining that needs professional removal.
If you choose to have dental veneers fitted, the porcelain is less porous than enamel, creating a whiter and more stain-resistant smile!
OK, so throughout this article the whitening benefits of veneers have been spoken about at length, and as veneers can whiten your smile up to 16 shades in 1 sitting, it is clear to see why they are so popular for people who want to obtain a whiter smile.
There are many other cosmetic benefits to choosing to have porcelain veneers fitted. If you have gaps in your teeth, cracks, chips or issues with symmetry in your smile, your dentist will be able to mould your new veneers to conceal these imperfections.
Once fitted, your porcelain veneers can last up to and over 20 years!
But, this may be reduced by lifestyle factors such as smoking, consumption of alcohol and the overall health of your mouth. Once the veneers are in, you still need to visit your dental team!
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
