Porcelain Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental option to help people smile with confidence again. Studies have been conducted to show the importance of being able to smile freely and the impact of this on your self-esteem, including social responses by others.
Veneers provide a natural look so most cannot tell that a porcelain veneer is not real, but are they worth it?
There are a couple of considerations in order to determine if Porcelain Veneers are the right dental option for you.
Cost of Porcelain Veneers Melbourne
There are different types of veneers.
Porcelain veneers are laminates that are matched to your tooth color to give you a natural look. They adhere to your lightly prepared existing tooth surface and generally, you’ll need more dental appointments to have them fitted.
Costs also vary depending on whether you need one porcelain veneer or many. Having an oral examination and consultation about your health history will provide our dentists with information to make the best recommendation.
The alternative to porcelain veneers is composite veneers that are made of a specific dental resin, matched to your tooth color and adhered to your tooth’s surface, as with porcelain veneers.
Having porcelain veneers attached to teeth required a greater investment than composite veneers.
It’s important to note that porcelain veneers last longer than composite veneers and generally, porcelain veneers can last anywhere between twelve to twenty-five years. How long they last will depend on your oral care and maintenance.
Hawthorn East Dental will provide information to ensure that once your porcelain veneers are fitted, you know how to look after them.
The Damage to your Teeth
Whether you need porcelain veneers or an alternative will depend on the damage to your teeth and then the extent of that damage. Even if you have any of the following, veneers still may not be possible and this can only be evaluated after a thorough dental consultation with Hawthorn East Dental.
The application of porcelain veneers may be used for:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Worn teeth
- Teeth with gaps
Veneers are considered a great alternative to orthodontics and a more affordable option.
