Are porcelain veneers the treatment for you? 5 cosmetic benefits from our team at Kooringal Dental

Do you have teeth that just won’t whiten? Or are you fed up with a gap?

In years gone by, such issues would have warranted more invasive treatments like braces or even lengthy whitening sessions, which could also be a bit pricey. Fast-forward to 2021, and there is a simple treatment that can treat these cosmetic ailments and many more, without the need for a metal aligner or dental bleaching.

When you come to our team at Kooringal Dental, we may be able to offer you veneers in Wagga to alleviate your cosmetic issues. Made from a thin layer of porcelain and affixed to your teeth with dental cement, this option is extremely versatile for cosmetic issues and can even reduce dental sensitivity too! What more could you want from dental treatment?

So, what are some of the other cosmetic benefits of having porcelain veneers in Wagga? Read on to find out!


A key reason many of our patients choose to have veneers in Wagga is for their whitening power.

Unlike traditional whitening which uses oxidising gels that can heighten sensitivity, these porcelain coverings simply require a mild sanding of the front of the teeth, the placing of dental cement and then the fitting. And as you can imagine, we can use this treatment to either colour-match your stained tooth to surrounding teeth or we can use it to whiten your entire smile up to 16 shades. As these coverings are fitted in one sitting, you can come into our surgery with one smile and leave with a new one that you won’t be able to stop showing off!


Porcelain coverings are not an alternative to orthodontic procedures and our team will need to assess the treatment that you are most suited for. But should you have a very minor misalignment or twisted tooth, we can make it look straighter with this treatment.


The enamel of our teeth is quite porous and is prone to staining, be it from cigarettes, soda or red wine.

Many of our patients ask to have porcelain coverings fitted to protect against future staining; porcelain is less porous than enamel and is therefore stain-resistant. So, your whiter, brighter smile can last a lot longer than it would with regular whitening and stain removal.


It is common for most people to have a bit of asymmetry in their smiles; perhaps one of your teeth is longer than its opposite tooth?

If so, we may be able to lengthen the shorter tooth to give your smile a more symmetrical look, using porcelain coverings. Remember, our team may decide that this issue would be better suited to orthodontic procedures than purely cosmetic, but we will discuss our conclusions with you before beginning any procedure.


Small gaps in a smile are nothing short of a nuisance!

And, you guessed it, coverings can resolve these issues too; using slightly wider coverings, we can close such gaps and create a smoother, more aesthetically- pleasing smile. Perfect!


All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
