Brisbane DENTAL VENEERS

Are you looking to improve your smile with porcelain veneers?

River City Dental is committed to helping you achieve the smile you desire. If you have concerns about the appearance of your teeth we will take time to discuss with you the different options available to improve your smile. Brisbane dental veneers have become a popular cosmetic solution in recent years and can be an affordable solution to give you the smile you desire.

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can be used to help transform your smile. A veneer is an extremely natural looking dental restoration that covers the outside or visible surface of teeth. A veneer can change the shape and colour of a tooth as well as hide defects. It is bonded into place and cannot be taken off. Brisbane dental veneers are durable and strong and will last many years with proper care but may need replacement over time.

Veneers can be used to correct:

  • Spaced or crowded teeth
  • Discoloured, dark or permanently stained teeth
  • Uneven or poorly shaped teeth
  • Badly chipped teeth

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can be used to help transform your smile.

It is bonded into place and cannot be taken off. Brisbane dental veneers are durable and strong and will last many years with proper care but may need replacement over time.

Veneers can be used to correct:

  • Spaced or crowded teeth
  • Discoloured, dark or permanently stained teeth
  • Uneven or poorly shaped teeth
  • Badly chipped teeth

Some frequently asked questions about veneers:

What material are used in a veneer?

Veneers are made of very thin tooth-coloured porcelain.

What are the benefits of having a veneer?

Porcelain veneers provide a number of benefits to patients:

  • Veneers can change the size, shape and colour of teeth.
  • Veneers are porcelain and will not stain.
  • Veneers remove minimal tooth structure and are the most conservative porcelain restoration
What are the risks associated with a veneer?

In having a veneer, some inherent risks exist both to the tooth and to the veneer itself.

The risks to the tooth are:

  • Preparation for a veneer permanently alters the tooth underneath the veneer.
  • If the cement seal at the edge of the veneer is lost, decay may form at the juncture of the veneer and tooth.
  • Preparing for and placing a veneer can irritate the tooth and cause “post-operative” sensitivity which may last for up to 3 months.
  • Teeth which have had veneers may need root canal treatment less than 1% of the time during the lifetime of the tooth.

The risks to the veneer are:

  • Porcelain may chip over time.
  • If the tooth needs a root canal treatment after the veneer is permanently cemented, the procedure may fracture the veneer and the veneer may need to be replaced.
What are the alternatives to veneers?

Alternatives to placing a veneer are to either leave the tooth as is or to place a composite restoration. Composite restorations remove decay but are limited because they will stain more and do not change the size and colour of teeth as well as veneers.

Can your bite affect a veneer?

Bite problems may lead to the veneer chipping or breaking. Proper alignment of the teeth prior to veneer treatment leads to a more aesthetic result and reduces the risk of damage to the veneer. Bite and tooth alignment problems should be addressed prior to veneer placement. Tooth grinding may cause veneers to fracture so a night guard may be recommended.

Are there any post-treatment limitations once I have a veneer?
  • Porcelain on a veneer may have a good colour match with adjacent natural teeth when the veneer is placed but less of a match as your natural teeth age.
  • A veneer may chip or break if used for abnormal activities eg. biting fingernails or using your teeth to open packets
