There can be nothing more upsetting than realising that you’ve chipped a tooth. Whether you bit into something hard and your tooth paid the price, or you were elbowed in the mouth by accident, having chipped teeth can spoil the aesthetic appearance of your smile and make you feel uncomfortable. At Kooringal Dental, we offer veneers Wagga that can improve the appearance of chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to change the shape of your teeth or improve the shade of them. There are two types of veneers: composite resin and porcelain.
How do veneers work?
Veneers Wagga are a non-invasive treatment that can cover the front of your teeth to improve the aesthetics of them. Composite resin veneers are used for minor issues and are applied directly to the front of your teeth by our dentists here at the practice. This means that you can be seen in just one visit and you won’t have to wait for the results!
Porcelain veneers are a little more time consuming, but are used to treat more complex issues. If you require porcelain veneers, we will first take impressions of your teeth to assess the size and shape of your teeth. We will then use this to shape and make your veneers, ready for when you come to your second appointment with us to have them fitted.
Which type of veneers should I have?
The type of veneers Wagga you will need will depend on your individual dental requirements. We can ascertain which would be the right treatment for you by having an initial consultation, where we can discuss your aims, examine your mouth thoroughly and advise you on the treatment option we then think is appropriate for you specifically. However, generally, composite resins are used to treat minor issues such as discolouration or a small chip. Porcelain veneers are more hardwearing and can last longer than composite resins. As such, they are useful for smile makeovers, where we can apply them to the fronts of all of your teeth to make your smile appear uniform in shape, shade and size. We can also use them to decrease the space between your teeth if you have gaps you want to lessen. They can, however, also be used for just a single tooth or a few, rather than your whole smile.
Is there anything else I need to know about veneers?
If you are looking for a natural looking and convenient solution to restoring or improving your smile, veneers could be a great option for you. If you opt for this treatment, they can be long lasting and other people shouldn’t realise that you don’t have a mouth full of completely natural teeth. This is a non-invasive method of giving you a smile to be proud of. Come to the surgery to get a great smile; after all, you deserve to be the lead role in the story of your own life! So, get ready and play your part, as we say it’s time for ‘Action!’
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
