Porcelain Veneers Melbourne VIC
At City Smiles located in the Melbourne CBD we can install 100% Australian-made porcelain veneers which can conceal crookedness, gaps, chips and discolouration for a more cohesive smile.
Positives of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are essentially thin shells (about as thick as a contact lens) that are applied over your natural teeth. They are custom designed and fitted to your mouth and can be used to alter the composition of your smile. For example veneers can be used to elongate the teeth and hide the appearance of buck teeth, or simply make stubbier teeth appear naturally longer.
Quality and Procedure
Once we have listened to your smile concerns we will take a mould of your teeth to begin the construction of your porcelain veneers. Before we do this we will need to remove a very small amount of enamel so that the teeth do not appear bulky once the thin porcelain veneers are applied. We will then send your moulds off to the Andent dental laboratory in Melbourne so that they can be constructed using high quality 100% Australian materials. This ensures that our procedures meet and exceed Australian dental standards and that you receive the best treatment possible.
During your second appointment we will prepare your teeth for the application of your veneers. This may involve applying a small amount of mild acid which will work with the bonding agent to secure your veneers. Your dentist will then meticulously place your veneers and apply a specialised light that activates and sets the bonding agent.

How long do Porcelain Veneers last?
With diligent care porcelain veneers can last up to 25 years in some cases. This will require adhering to a strict dental hygiene regime which will involve brushing, flossing, drinking acidic and richly colour drinks through a straw and visiting your dentist at City Smiles in Melbourne at least twice a year.
