Dental Veneers Leichhardt
No one wants to smile with cracked, chipped, stained, and gapped teeth.
At My Local Dentists (previously Leichhardt Marketplace Dental), we can make your dental wish come true. Cosmetic dentistry, such as dental veneers, can enhance your smile.
A picture-perfect smile is on your fingertips with the help of your Leichhardt dentist!
Dental veneers are wafer-thin custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material or porcelain placed on the front surfaces of the teeth. They improve a flawed smile and cover minor dental imperfections.
Dental veneers address several teeth imperfections, including:
- Discoloured and/or stained teeth
- Fractured and/or chipped teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Misaligned and/or crooked teeth
- Gaps and/or uneven spacing between teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
To receive dental veneers, patients should:
- Have good gums and overall oral health
- Be committed to proper oral care
- Have particular goals, which they can inform their dentist at their initial appointment, as well as expectations
- Have a sufficient amount of healthy enamel, as dentists usually remove a thin layer of enamel before putting veneers
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a popular choice for their cosmetic and practical advantages such as:
- Durable – with proper care, they can last up to 10 years
- Look like natural tooth
- Cover discoloured teeth
- Close small gaps in between teeth
- Correct irregularly shaped teeth
- Cover chips, cracks, and fractures
- Repair worn down tooth
Dental Veneer Procedure
Before veneers are applied, your Leichhardt dentist removes a minimal amount of the tooth’s surface to make room for the veneer.
Your Leichhardt dentist also takes impressions of the teeth and sends it to the dental laboratory, so your customised veneers are made. For this reason, veneers usually require two dental appointments.
During the initial visit, your Leichhardt dentist prepares the teeth, takes impressions, and applies the temporary veneers.
On the second visit, your dentist removes the temporary veneers, cleans the tooth and attaches the permanent veneers to the teeth. With proper care, veneers usually last for several years.
With proper care, veneers from My Local Dentists (previously Leichhardt Marketplace Dental) remain intact for several years.
To protect your veneers from damage, we encourage patients to practice good oral hygiene at home and continue receiving regular check-ups and cleanings.
