Have the Smile of Your Dreams
Do you look in the mirror or at pictures of yourself and see imperfections in your smile you’d like to correct? We believe everyone should love their smile. At Sleep Dentistry Melbourne, we help our patients do just that by offering an array of services that provide them with the smiles they've always wanted.
Our porcelain veneers can help you achieve a natural-looking and beautiful smile, while correcting the appearance and increasing the strength of teeth that are:
- Cracked or broken
- Irregularly shaped
- Mildly misaligned
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations applied to the front surface of a tooth to correct flaws in a patient’s smile and restore a natural, attractive, and healthy appearance. Porcelain veneers are engineered to be bonded with the front of the tooth.
We carefully craft and custom make our veneers to each individual tooth. Our veneers produce natural-looking results because they so closely mimic the reflective qualities of real teeth.
What Is the Process Like?
Every great result starts with a great consultation. One of our experienced dentists will do an examination and talk through your areas of concern, desired outcomes, and budget to decide if veneers are the right choice for you.
At Sleep Dentistry Melbourne, our priority is to make each patient as comfortable as possible, and this procedure is no exception. We’ll customise the level of sedation, if any, you’d like for each step of your process.
Because porcelain veneers are so highly customized, we'll buff a small amount of enamel from your teeth and make an impression of your mouth. Professionally trained technicians will create your final set of veneers that we carefully examine to make sure they’re perfect.
You’ll visit us again to have your newly crafted veneers attached to your teeth. Before we begin, we will perfectly match the color of your teeth, so you can enjoy seamless results.
Your dentist will get your teeth ready for the bonding process by cleaning, polishing, and etching your teeth. This etching helps to strengthen the bond between the porcelain and the tooth.
A special cement is placed on the veneer, and then the veneer is fitted to the tooth. Once it’s perfectly placed, you doctor will apply a specialized light beam that activates the cement, causing it to harden quickly and giving you long-lasting results.
Will You Get Amazing Results?
Patients who choose our porcelain veneers rave about not only their natural-looking, healthy, and beautiful new smile, but the ease of the process. It takes a week or two to get used to the look and feel of even, straight, and naturally white teeth. Our patients love the results so much that they report:
- Higher self-esteem
- Compliments on their smile
- Low maintenance
- Improved professional and personal confidence
- Loving having their picture taken
How Long Will They Last?
Porcelain veneers are the longest-lasting veneers. Depending on your individual situation, condition of your teeth, and how well you take care of your veneers, it’s not unusual for them to last between 10 and 20 years. These veneers act like natural teeth, so what would chip a real tooth, might chip a veneer. The good news? In most cases, we can repair them without them having to be replaced.
