It is a common complaint amongst dental patients that they feel their teeth are not white enough or show minor imperfections such as cracks or chips.
If you are like many dental patients, you probably have extremely sensitive teeth and when it comes to whitening options, you may be less than eager to undertake the traditional methods that can be offered by dental surgeries. Also, if you have cracks or chips in your teeth, they may not be an appropriate method for correcting colour or enamel hues.
Luckily there is now an option that can be offered by many dental teams, including ours, known as porcelain veneers in Parramatta.
When you come to visit our dentist we can offer porcelain veneers in Parramatta that provide an instant aesthetic improvement over your natural teeth. Easy to fit and non-invasive, this treatment is becoming more popular amongst dental patients and is showing no signs of slowing down.
But what is it about this treatment that makes it so popular? Here our dentist explores the advantages that porcelain veneers can offer to patients.
As we mentioned earlier, a key feature that veneers can offer to our patients is whitening. Our dentist will be able to colour match veneers to your natural shade or can use them to whiten your smile up to 18 or more shades in a single fitting. The result aesthetically is entirely up to you, but we will discuss with you the most appropriate shades that will suit your face and will improve your appearance, without looking overly garish.
Veneers in Parramatta also offer patients an amazing way to conceal cracks in their enamel or chips which can become discoloured over time. Especially if you are a fan of drinking wines that are high in tannins or like black coffee.
This also allows veneers to add a protective barrier against minor imperfections in the tooth, which can attract bacteria and cause decay to form.
If you have had a tooth that has been damaged due to trauma or has been weakened due to a procedure such as a root canal, our team may suggest strengthening it with a veneer. You may be curious as to how a porcelain veneer can add strength to enamel, but one applied to teeth is composed of an extremely durable and hardy material, which can add a lot of power to your bite.
There is also the advantage of having your teeth become less sensitive through the use of porcelain veneers. If you have sensitive teeth due to microscopic holes in the enamel which are exposing the pulp of the tooth to the surrounding air, this can cause discomfort when you are eating certain foods. Veneers offer a solution, as they cover the microscopic holes in the enamel and as they are hard and durable they will not allow any temperature to permeate and will thus reduce sensitivity.
If you have a minor case of dental misalignment that you do not want to use a brace or aligner for, veneers can offer a solution. They can be used to correct asymmetries in a smile, conceal minor gaps and help your teeth to appear straighter.
