In the world of cosmetic dentistry, it seems that almost everything and anything can be accomplished.
Indeed, today it is possible to restore missing teeth with a custom-fitted prosthetic tooth, that looks real and feels real. There are ways to speed up the overall healing process of dental treatments using lasers, and of course, there are now more options available than ever before to whiten your teeth.
But, unfortunately, there are many reasons why a person may be unable to have their teeth whitened using the traditional methods; many gels and abrasives which are used to clean the enamel can heighten the sensitivity of the teeth. Some people may have already undertaken professional level whitening, but are now set on finding a more permanent solution to dental yellowing and discolouration.
Enter the dental veneer!
Similar to a false nail, veneers Wagga are designed to fit comfortably over the front of your teeth, to create a whiter smile. Custom-fitted to match the shape of your teeth, a veneer is also a great way to conceal a crack, chips or discolouration.
But what are some of the other advantages of having dental veneers in Wagga Wagga?
While many people opt for the bright white or ‘Hollywood smile’ when it comes to dental whitening, dental veneers can be used to create a more natural-looking alternative. Yes, your teeth can be whitened up to 16 shades using this method, but your dental team will be able to colour match them to your surrounding teeth if you wish to have a less dramatic appearance.
As dental sensitivity is common, it can be a great comfort to realise that once you have had these coverings fitted, your oral sensitivity can reduce greatly, if not totally disappear.
Dental sensitivity is due to microscopic holes in the enamel, which allow hot and cold stimuli to directly impact on the nerve, causing the sharp feeling pain. So, once a veneer is placed over these holes, your tooth is protected against further discomfort.
The enamel which covers each tooth is a naturally porous material.
Mix this with the modern high-acid diet, and you are left with teeth which are stained and discoloured.
While it may be wise to cut down on acidic foods for your overall health, having porcelain coverings placed on your teeth will conceal such stains and, as porcelain is more stain-resistant than enamel, will prevent further ones from occurring.
If you have minor chips, cracks or other minor cosmetic issues with your teeth, the placing of a porcelain covering can successfully conceal these. If you are looking for a way to hide minor gaps or correct visual issues with asymmetry, this treatment may be the perfect option for you.
Easy to fit
Once your veneers dentist in Wagga receives your custom-designed coverings, the fitting is a painless process. Fitted over your teeth and held in place with dental cement, it is also a fast one and can be completed in less than an hour. Perfect!
