The role of veneers in cosmetic dental treatment
If you have multiple issues that are affecting the appearance of your teeth then you can speak to us and find out about veneers Wagga. Veneers are designed to fit each of your teeth with accuracy and precision. They are thin porcelain shells that cover the front of your teeth so that they can disguise any issues that may be affecting their appearance. You can have one veneer for one awkward tooth or you can have a full set of veneers for a complete smile makeover. Veneers Wagga can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are heavily stained. Teeth whitening is an excellent method of removing stains from your teeth, however, there are some stains that cannot be removed by teeth whitening. These may be stubborn stains for example caused as a result of decades of smoking which can only be lightened by teeth whitening, but not removed all together. Also intrinsic stains that affect the internal layer of your teeth, the dentine, cannot be removed by teeth whitening either. In this case you need veneers Wagga to whiten your teeth. Veneers are also used to disguise chips and cracks in your teeth where a filling or other restorative treatment is not necessary. With a veneer the tooth will look brand-new.
Once in place, veneers are designed to last 10 to 15 years. You need to continue to visit the dentist on a regular basis and it is also important that you maintain good dental health at home. Veneers can disguise the appearance of any issues with your teeth, however they do not prevent you from developing cavities or gum disease, as your original tooth is still underneath the veneer. It is important that you continue to maintain excellent dental hygiene practices after you have had veneers so that your original teeth remain healthy. You should also visit the dental practice at least once every six months to prevent tooth decay and gum disease from developing, to remove any excess plaque and tartar which may be putting up on the back of your teeth and to ensure that your veneers are in optimal condition. Veneers are stain resistant, which means your teeth will remain white and beautiful.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
