Do you suffer from stained and chipped teeth?

Ria Family Dental has a range of treatments to improve the look of your teeth and upgrade your smile.

We can easily help you overcome several aesthetic issues, which we will enumerate shortly.

Dental Veneers Yeronga

Dental veneers are one of our primary tools in the fight against unsightly teeth.

Dental veneers upgrade the appearance of individual teeth and overall smiles. They are relatively simple to place and can dramatically improve teeth’ size, shape, form, and colour.

If you are considering veneers or are interested in what we have just mentioned about them, read on to learn more.

How Dental Veneers Enhance Your Smile

Dental veneers are one uncomplicated option if you want to upgrade your smile.

Thin coverings that are placed over the surface (visible) part of the tooth, veneers help correct dental issues, such as:

Z Stains and Discoloration

Age, medicines, and the consumption of staining agents like tobacco or coffee can all cause some teeth to become discoloured or stained over time. Dental veneers offer a solution for teeth that cannot be effectively whitened through traditional methods, providing a brighter and more uniform appearance to your smile.

Z Worn or Chipped Teeth

Daily wear and tear and accidents or injuries can lead to worn-down or chipped teeth. Veneers can effectively cover these imperfections, restoring the shape and structure of the affected teeth and giving them a more polished look.

Z Misshapen or Crooked Teeth

Not everyone is blessed with naturally straight teeth. If orthodontic treatment is unnecessary, dental veneers can help correct the look of crooked or unevenly shaped teeth. Dentists can create the illusion of a straighter and more harmonious smile by carefully crafting veneers to match the desired shape and alignment.

Z Gaps and Irregularities

Gaps between teeth or uneven spacing can detract from an otherwise beautiful smile.

Veneers offer a solution by concealing these gaps and creating a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing alignment.

Dentists can achieve a balanced and symmetrical smile by customising the size and shape of the veneers to fill in gaps or smooth out irregularities.

Veneers can be constructed of porcelain or composite resin; porcelain veneers are said to be more glossy, translucent, and long-lasting, providing the appearance of a natural, healthy tooth.

Dental Veneers and Your Oral Health

Not every patient is a good candidate for dental veneers, so it is crucial for patients with stained, discoloured, and other unattractive tooth conditions to have a thorough check-up before consulting about veneers.

Veneers can affect your oral health, including changing the chance of getting cavities in the teeth with veneers.

If you currently have periodontal disease or tooth decay, veneers are generally not a good option. Veneers can only be considered once such conditions are resolved.

While veneers can cover superficial and aesthetic issues, they should never be used to cover dental health problems.

Porcelain does not rot independently, but any area of the tooth exposed by the veneer is vulnerable to cavities.

The area most susceptible to decay is the meeting at the edge of the veneer. A poorly placed veneer can leave the ground-down enamel more susceptible to bacteria invasion.

However, in practice, we see very little decay around veneers because patients with veneers take better care of their teeth once we’ve given them a beautiful smile.

It is usually easy to fix if you suffer a cavity in a tooth with a veneer, particularly if the problem is caught early.

This is another reason we recommend regular dental visits to Ria Family Dental!

There isn’t much difference between cavities in a natural tooth and a veneered tooth. The treatment will be mostly the same.

There is one slight difference if decay occurs directly against the porcelain.

In that instance, connecting the composite filler material to the porcelain requires a specific bonding technique.

The tooth-coloured bonding agent may answer newer veneers, while older dental veneers may be replaced.

Our advice, as always, is to prevent these problems with good oral hygiene. Our answer is always prevention and not cure.

While veneers can fix some unavoidable issues with your teeth, you must avoid any future dental problems that might compromise your veneers or the teeth they are placed on.
