Veneers in Charleston, NSW

When you think of the perfect smile, does the face of your favourite celebrity come to mind? It might surprise you to know that many of those film-worthy smiles have been enhanced with porcelain veneers.

Versatile porcelain veneers can take your smile from dull to dazzling, and our dentists have the skills and training to do it. Veneers work by camouflaging many different dental issues. Whether your smile imperfections include teeth that are gapped, chipped or misaligned, you can have beautiful, white, straight teeth sooner than you might have imagined.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Made of thin, translucent porcelain, a veneer is customised to fit over your natural tooth structure. Together with your dentist, you will choose the look and shade of your new smile. Veneers can be used to fix one or two teeth, or they can improve your entire smile.

Some of the dental issues they are ideal for fixing include:

  • Teeth that are misshapen
  • Teeth that are misaligned
  • Teeth with fractures, gaps and chips
  • Teeth that are stained or discoloured
  • Teeth that are misaligned

Are There Other Benefits to Veneers?

Other than giving you a celebrity-calibre smile, there are other benefits to patients who opt for veneers:

  • Veneers are bonded directly to your natural teeth, making them strong and long-lasting.
  • Veneers requires removal of some of your tooth structure, preserving most of your natural teeth structure.
  • Veneers are easy to take care of and with good home care and regular visits to the dentist, they will last for many years.
  • Veneers are resistant to stains, so they will not discolour like your natural teeth do. They will not need to be whitened to stay bright and white.

How Should I Care for My Veneers?

Caring for your new smile is easy. Brush twice a day and floss at least once. Keep up with dental check-ups and cleans every six months. Although they are strong and durable, damage is possible, so use common sense and don’t use your veneers as a tool or to chew anything that isn’t food.
