Porcelain Veneers Perth
Durability and superior cosmetic dentistry results are key when it comes to porcelain veneers and they can last anywhere between 10 to 20 years or even longer if maintained correctly. Porcelain is extremely strong and when considering the price, they are definitely value for money and a superb investment.
When fabricated using high quality materials by perfectionist lab technicians and a dentist with a good eye for aesthetics, porcelain veneers look incredibly natural. They have that same translucent, glassy-looking quality that our natural tooth enamel possesses.
Porcelain veneers are not a same-day deal procedure and you may have to wear temporary veneers until they are finished being sculpted and created in the laboratory. Porcelain is a great solution should you have worn enamel, wear and tear, genetic defects, uneven teeth, etc. as they address serious concerns such as these.
These days, porcelain veneers can be fabricated with little to no preparation of the teeth which means they can be very conservative. So, if you’re looking for durable, natural looking veneers, porcelain is definitely the way to go.
Because porcelain is so strong and durable, the chances of it staining or chipping is very low. The glaze that is applied after application, reinforces this strength too.
While some dentists may warn you to change your diet due to the porous nature of composite resin that can stain, porcelain does not require this change in lifestyle as it does not stain easily.
Many people believe porcelain veneers are destructive of a tooth’s structure but in actual fact, they are very thin and are prepared and applied much like acrylic nails. Their strength comes from the underlying enamel structure, which means the less the tooth is prepared, often the stronger the veneer becomes after it has been bonded to the teeth.
Porcelain is a more permanent veneer option and we work with our patients to ensure great results with minimally invasive techniques. We even give our patients the chance to see what they would look like with veneers using a carefully crafted mock up from a cast model of their teeth and placing temporary dental veneers in their mouth BEFORE they opt to go ahead with the porcelain veneer treatment.
The only disadvantages to porcelain veneers are that it takes more than one visit to get them and they are more expensive than composite resin ones initially.
Another thing to remember with porcelain is that if you chip a veneer, you will need to get it replaced.
