Correcting your Smile with Dental Veneers

When it comes to achieving the perfect smile, sometimes you need a little help. That’s where dental veneers come in.

At St John Medical, we want to help you achieve this, which is why we offer dental veneers as part of our wide selection of cosmetic dentistry services. Here’s how dental veneers can help you get back your smile.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers, also referred to as teeth veneers or porcelain veneers, are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size and length.

They are most commonly made from porcelain as they resist stains better than other materials such as resin composite. They also mimic the light reflecting the properties of your own teeth better, making your veneers look every bit as natural as your originals.

To attain the veneer, dental porcelain crowns are often used as they’re extremely versatile and their strength and appearance rival that of natural.

Am I an Ideal Candidate?

Porcelain veneers are the perfect option when minor changes are required, including:

  • Covering teeth that cannot be whitened or have become stained from trauma by lightening tooth colour
  • Restoring teeth that may have been subjected to extensive decay, root therapy or fluorosis
  • Closing small gaps and aligning crowded or protruding teeth
  • Treating slightly uneven, misshapen, crooked or chipped teeth

If you struggle with conditions such as gum disease, root canal infections or tooth decay, it’s recommended you begin a treatment program before embarking on cosmetic dental work. A consultation with your dentist will determine if veneers are a suitable option for you.

The Procedure

With advancements in dental technology, veneers have evolved in composition and the application methods have changed too. Nowadays, porcelain veneers are simple and convenient to apply, are stronger and look like natural teeth.

Before the procedure, your dentist will assess the underlying structure of your teeth to ensure your gums, roots and enamel are all strong and healthy enough for long term veneers. Then when it comes to the procedure, pieces of porcelain are fixed over the front of your teeth to help your pearly whites shine bright.
