Do you find yourself hiding away from cameras and avoiding social events? Does your smile get you down on confidence, or feeling embarrassed? Cosmetic dentistry treatments may be able to help you achieve a smile you will want to show off. Crooked teeth may be able to be straightened, discoloured teeth whitened, and broken, chipped teeth concealed. Here at Marriott and Hand in Melbourne we are able to provide a number of methods to get our patients smiling, and one of the more popular treatments is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells which are placed over the front of your teeth to assist in enhancing colour, shape and the general aesthetics of your teeth. Veneers are bonded to the teeth in what we refer to as the ‘smile zone’; this is the six upper and lower teeth which are exposed when you smile.
The process of fitting veneers takes two appointments. Your first appointment will allow our team to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent off to the lab where your fully personalised permanent veneers will be fabricated. Whilst your permanent veneers are made up, temporary versions are fitted to your teeth. Once the permanent veneers are ready we will contact you and book you in for your second appointment. During this session your temporary veneers will be removed and replaced with the permanent versions.
At our Essendon practice we are committed to providing the highest quality treatment and porcelain veneers available. Veneers can be used to:
At Marriott and Hand we also offer a range of whitening options. Unlike whitening treatments, porcelain veneers are able to conceal any chipped or broken teeth as well as offering a great cosmetic whitening effect. Prior to cosmetic treatment being undertaken on your teeth our team of skilled dentists will ensure you have no underlying oral health issues. Ensuring patients do not have any underlying serious oral health issues such as gum disease is paramount prior to commencing treatment, as such issues can negatively impact any cosmetic treatment. We are dedicated to helping you achieve a naturally more beautiful smile, and with porcelain veneers we are able to achieve this in the shortest possible time frame.
To get the best results for your smile we can combine cosmetic dental treatments to provide you with the best results. Whitening the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers can help you to obtain a beautiful, natural looking smile. When you visit us at our conveniently located Melbourne practice, one of our friendly and skilled dentists will assess your oral health and determine what the best course of action is for you.
