Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective and popular restorative treatments to refresh teeth with discolouration, chips and, in some cases, to align crooked teeth to help create a beautiful smile.
Ashton Avenue Dental Practice, our cosmetic dentistry services include porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns at affordable rates, so we encourage you to contact our Claremont dentists today for more information.
There are many reasons why you may need or want porcelain veneers. Basically, it is to improve the appearance of your smile and front teeth. Veneers are, in fact, designed to straighten slightly crooked teeth, and/or restore chipped or damaged teeth and whiten your smile when regular whitening isn’t an option.
This procedure usually takes two to three visits to complete, spread over two or three weeks.
On average, you can expect your veneers to last 8-10 years before they may require repair or replace. We provide you with some tips to ensure that they last longer. Regular care and maintenance are crucial. This involves proper cleaning and flossing each day, twice a day. Regular check-ups with our team will ensure that any unexpected problems can be dealt with early. Similarly, we can instruct you on some of the behaviours to avoid. For example, excessive chewing and clenching and other bad habits may cause the porcelain and/or enamel to crack and break. Overall, if you take care of your teeth and gums then your reward will be a beautiful smile to keep.
A traditional dental crown can solve a host of problems, from lost fillings and root canals to cracking or fracturing of the tooth. Porcelain crowns are available to all our dental patients just like porcelain veneers; however, crowns cover the entire tooth so that they can provide structural support to the damaged tooth. Porcelain crowns can also be used to cover teeth that are simply not as aesthetically pleasing due to discoloration or cracks/chips.
Our skilled dentists will make an initial impression of your teeth, and tailor the crown to fit the exact dimensions of the damaged tooth. They will then fashion the porcelain crown to match the colour of the rest of your teeth. To achieve this, we work with only the best dental labs in Western Australia, which provide custom shading for your teeth. Porcelain crowns have been known to last decades with proper oral care, and can even help with chewing or speaking problems that may have been caused by damaged teeth. One of the most common dental treatments, porcelain crowns can brighten your smile in just two short office visits!
