Looking for Veneers in Brisbane?
Dental veneers are custom made caps, applied to your teeth for cosmetic and protective purposes. Fitting veneers is a straightforward procedure and your local Brisbane dentist will be happy to help. Both composite and porcelain veneers are bonded to your existing tooth, leaving you with a fresh white smile.
Types of veneers
There are two types of veneers to choose from: composite and porcelain. Your North Brisbane dentist will advise which is best, although the main difference is the material used to make the veneer.
- Composite veneers. Composite veneers are made from a composite resin, the cheaper alternative to porcelain. Fitting composite veneers at a Brisbane dentist is a quicker procedure, and can be done during one sitting.
- Porcelain veneers. The clue is in the name: porcelain veneers are made from ceramic porcelain. Fitting porcelain veneers will take your Brisbane dentist a little longer because the veneers take some time to prepare. That said, porcelain veneers last longer, because the material is stronger than composite.
The choice for porcelain vs composite veneers is a personal one, and the pros and cons would be discussed with your North Brisbane dentist. In many cases your choice of fitted veneers would depend on your preference and your budget.
Veneers are fitted for the following reasons:
To cover a chipped or broken tooth. Veneers are fitted to teeth that are chipped or broken after an accident. It is also possible that an overbite or underbite can wear down teeth, and result in a visit to the dentist for veneer services. There are also types of veneers made to cover teeth damaged by decay.
To fill in gaps. Veneers can balance the spaces in-between gaps and restore your mouth to an even smile in the most natural looking way.
