A Porcelain Veneer is a custom cosmetic solution made of dental ceramic. Like a thin shell, a veneer fits over the front and sides of the teeth. The veneer is intended to provide patients with a permanent solution for improving the appearance of the teeth’ alignment. It can also be used to treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. Dental veneers are custom-designed to look and function like your natural teeth so you can enjoy a beautiful and confident smile. Porcelain Veneers can be used to treat the following:
- Gaps between teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Crooked teeth
- A cracked tooth
- Damaged tooth
- A chipped tooth
- Misshapen tooth
Our teeth naturally darken with age through a combination of our diet staining our teeth and the white enamel wearing away to show the darker dentine underneath. It involves a safe chemical process that uses oxygen to break down stain molecules on the teeth’ surface and whiten the teeth. Tooth whitening done by a dental professional is regarded as a relatively safe and effective method of improving the aesthetics of an otherwise healthy smile.
Gum contouring is a dental procedure that is conducted to improve the health and appearance of a smile. Our professional dentist will use a tool for gum contouring to create a more aesthetic gumline. Depending on your case, the gum treatment may take a few minutes to conduct. It is usually performed for cosmetic purposes when patients are unhappy with their gums resting too high or too low. For some patients with excessive gum tissue, simple gum contouring can be undertaken to correct the gum line. Before the procedure takes place, the dentist may design your new gum line for you. This is usually through a computer-generated mock-up of your teeth and gums. Once you are happy with the new gum line design, a time for the procedure will be organized.
