Veneers in Bayside and Fairfield VIC
Dental Veneers Transform Smiles
Prime Dental Bayside Hampton offers both porcelain and composite veneers in our Hampton, Melbourne dental office. Veneers are unique cosmetic restorations that change the way your teeth look; without changing the foundation of your smile. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or composite that are bonded directly over the front surface of your tooth, one tooth at a time. When several veneers are placed next to one another, it transforms the appearance of your entire smile. We typically use veneers to cover aesthetic concerns on teeth that may be:
- Crowded or crooked
- Discolored and stained
The Veneer Process
Your veneer appointment process will depend on the type of veneer that you choose. Composite veneers are typically designed right here in our office and take one appointment to complete. Our dentists prepare your natural teeth and use composite materials in the color of your preference to re-shape and bond over the front of your natural tooth.
Porcelain veneers are made in an off-site laboratory by a dental lab technician. At your first appointment we will adjust the teeth and then take an impression, which is sent off to our lab with instructions on your preferred tooth shape and colors. We then place a temporary veneer over your tooth to prevent sensitivity. In about two weeks you will return for us to permanently bond the porcelain veneers over your teeth.
For the most dramatic smile makeover possible, dental veneers are often the treatment of choice. Call us at either of our office locations or visit us today.
