Porcelain Veneers in Mornington – Transform Your Smile with high quality porcelain veneers

One of the most popular trends in cosmetic dentistry today is porcelain veneers. Patients can completely transform the way their smile looks with flawlessly fabricated, natural appearing porcelain veneers. At Barkly Street Dental Group, we offer professional consultation prior to the treatment to help you understand how veneers function and how they can help you improve the appearance of your teeth and smile.

An Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are fine laminated facings which are fabricated using high-grade porcelain. These hard-wearing veneers are made in such a way that they can be fitted over the front surfaces of teeth to cover up a wide variety of blemishes, cracks and chips. They can also be used to enhance the shape, position, colour and length of teeth.
The process itself requires prior preparation but the results are worth it. Once the procedure is completed, our dental veneers have the ability to completely transform your smile. Call us today so that we can discuss the right solution for you.

Advantages of Opting for Porcelain Veneers for a Smile Makeover

There are many advantages of proceeding with your porcelain veneer treatment – below are a few of the most prominent ones:

• They effectively cover and hide most dental irregularities such as cracks, chipped margins, discoloured restorations, differences of shape and size, staining and tooth discolouration, pits and gaps between teeth. Porcelain is a tough material. It has outstanding strength and excellent aesthetic properties.

• Compared to their composite versions, porcelain veneers last far longer and do not stain or change colour over time like composites do.

• In case of breakage, they can be re-made and replaced on the tooth without any complications.

The Veneering Procedure

The First Visit

Veneering is completed in two visits because the veneers need to be fabricated at a nearby ceramics dental laboratory. During your first appointment, Dr Harrison will address any questions and concerns you have regarding the treatment and will give you a good indication of what you can expect from it.

Next, following the administration of local anaesthetic to ensure you are comfortable – he will begin preparation. In most cases, this involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel from the tooth or teeth receiving the veneers. Mornington patients should know that once enamel is removed, the process is irreversible. An impression of the prepared tooth or teeth is then taken and sent to the laboratory for final fabrication. Temporary composite veneers are fitted for use during the interim period whilst your permanent porcelain veneers are being made.

The second visit

It usually takes around 2-4 weeks to receive your permanent porcelain veneers. Once your veneers are ready, Dr Harrison will check them for appearance and fit. Adjustments can still be made at this point. The veneers are then permanently bonded to the teeth with an extremely strong dental bonding cement.
