At a Glance
What do veneers do?
Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide discolouration, gaps or cracks in your teeth. Veneers cover the tooth’s surface, rejuvenating the aesthetics of your teeth.
Can porcelain veneers be removed?
Porcelain veneers are considered to be a fixed solution for tooth imperfections and are securely bonded to your teeth with strong dental cement. This means porcelain veneers can only be removed by a trained and qualified dentist.
Do porcelain veneers stain?
Porcelain veneers are coated with a stain resistant resin that will help repel most stains. If damage is caused to the resin however, it will make the veneers more susceptible to staining over time.
How strong are porcelain veneers?
Dental veneers are made of porcelain, and many patients may think they are fragile but veneers are quite durable. After Dr Paul Trembath attaches the veneers to your teeth, they can last over a decade as long as they are taken care of.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is used to conceal small imperfections in your teeth and tooth coloured resin is placed onto the tooth by strong adhesives and set by a high intensity curing light. The resin is easy to sculpt and offers a seamless look.
Is dental bonding expensive?
Dental bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. As veneers and crowns need to be customised and sent to a specialist laboratory, dental bonding can usually be done in one appointment.
Case Study 1
Acidic erosion is the loss of enamel due to acid damage from either excessive acidic drinks such as carbonated cola drinks or fruit juice. This combined with an improper brushing regime will cause loss of enamel often near the gum line and produce sensitive teeth especially to cold. Here we show before and after photos where we restored the affected areas with bonded composite resin.
Wear the smile you’ve always wanted
Dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. They have been popularised for their remarkable ability to repair, protect and enhance the natural aesthetics of your teeth. A well-designed and crafted veneer can be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Veneers are classified as a cosmetic dentistry procedure because they create flawless, white, natural looking smiles. But they can also be put in the category of restorative dentistry, as they shield and protect the surface of damaged teeth.
The two key benefits veneers provide for our patients are the restoration of the tooth surface and their ability to rejuvenate the aesthetics of your teeth. Dental veneers are a quick and easy way to completely rejuvenate the entire look of your smile.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers are created from wafer thin porcelain shells that are placed directly onto the front of your teeth. They are typically only bonded to the teeth visible when you smile. Porcelain veneers work by hiding any cracks, discolouration or gaps in your teeth instantly.
Veneers are matched to the natural tones and shapes of your smile to create optimal facial symmetry. This minimally invasive treatment is perfect for our patients who are after a quick way to rejuvenate their smile will minimal fuss, and no downtime.
Porcelain veneers are considered a durable and long lasting dental option and can last anywhere from 12-15 years with generally no maintenance.
What is the process for dental veneers?
The process for veneers is quite simple. Firstly, Dr Paul Trembath will slightly reduce the size of your natural tooth so the thin veneer can sit seamlessly on the front. He will then make impressions of the prepared tooth to send to a specialist laboratory for creation.
When you come in for your second appointment you will be given a mirror to see the final shape and colour of your new veneers before Dr Trembath cements the tooth in place. The veneers will be bonded in place with dental cement to ensure a resilient connection.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is ideal for repairing any minor imperfections in your smile. Tooth bonding is the application of tooth coloured resin to the tooth by adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The resin is sculpted, shaped and polished for a seamless look.
What is dental bonding used for?
Bonding is generally used for cosmetic purposes to hide imperfections of a discoloured or chipped tooth. It can be a fairly inexpensive solution to brighten your teeth quickly and successfully.
Dental bonding can last anywhere up to 10 years. This depends on each patient and how well the bonding is taken care of.
This dental bonding procedure can often be completed in a single visit at Trembath Dental.
