At Kooringal Dental, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, and one of them is veneers. Veneers Wagga can help your stained or chipped teeth look more uniform and make them lighter and brighter. We have both composite resin and porcelain veneers on offer, so read on to find out if this could be the treatment for you.
What are veneers?
If you’ve been looking at treatments for stained or chipped teeth, chances are you’ve come across veneers Wagga. Veneers can also be used for misshapen, gapped or crooked teeth. They consist of a thin mould of porcelain or composite resin, which is bonded to the front of the teeth. They are designed to look like your other teeth in size and shape, as well as colour, in order to create a natural look. If you are having veneers on all of your teeth, the colour chosen will then be uniform.
What are the benefits of choosing veneers Wagga Wagga?
The great thing about veneers is that they are a long-term cosmetic solution to the aesthetics of your teeth. They can also protect weak teeth that are exposed to further damage if left untreated. Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite bonding, however, they offer a stain-resistant solution to giving you a brighter smile. Porcelain veneers are also longer-lasting than composite resin, so while they may be more expensive, they can often be well worth the investment in the long term.
Another major benefit of choosing veneers over other treatments such as crowns, is that they aren’t as invasive to fit. When a crown is fitted, your tooth’s enamel has to be removed more to fit it than with a veneer; very little has to be taken away to fit a veneer. You can also have local anaesthetic when having veneers fitted, so you shouldn’t feel any discomfort. With porcelain veneers, the durability is on a par with crowns.
Composite resin veneers are non-invasive and can be carried out in a single appointment slot, whereas porcelain veneers normally require a couple of visits.
Veneers are nice and easy to take care of. Just like your natural teeth, you simply need to brush and floss regularly, and have your regular dental check-ups.
So, those are the positives. Any negatives?
The main thing we like patients to be aware of is that once you have veneers, it is an irreversible procedure and it can take a few weeks to get used to the feeling of them. Some patients can also experience some sensitivity, but here at Kooringal Dental, we can discuss your individual case with you and advise you about the best course of treatment for you. We care about getting you the results we believe are achievable, whatever treatment suits you best. Having a consultation with our veneers dentist in Wagga will enable you to ask as many questions as you need to about the options available, and we will give you a thorough examination to check your mouth and determine what could be the right treatment for you.
