Before & After Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Treatment Types

1. Veneers (Popular)

Veneers have been the gold standard in cosmetic Dental procedures for decades.

Veneers are made specifically for each patient and are designed to closely resemble a person’s natural teeth.

Veneers are a covering of porcelain / composite resin (tooth coloured filling material).

These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of your front teeth, which gives a desired shape and shade (colour).

A full set of veneers is one of the quickest and cheapest ways to get a complete smile makeover.

Why Might I Have a Veneer?

Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks.

What are the Benefits of Veneers?

There are several benefits for having dental veneers, including:

Why Porcelain Veneers are Better than Composite Veneers

While composite resin still looks great, porcelain is unmatched.

An incredible benefit of porcelain veneers is they are stain resistant.

If you receive this type of veneer on most of your upper and lower teeth, this could mean no more having to white your natural teeth.

Composite resin will stain like natural teeth.

***For more differences between porcelain and composite please take a glance at our two different tables – Porcelain Veneers (All the Benefits) and Composite Veneers (All the Benefits)***

Porcelain Veneers (All the Benefits)

What Are They?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain adhered to the outer-surface of the tooth.
Made to match your teeth (or whiten) and improve your overall smile.
1. Time
Porcelain veneers typically take at least two visits.
Your dentist will remove a very thin layer of your teeth, take an impression of the teeth receiving the veneers and send the mold/ intraoral scan out to a lab.
While you are waiting on your veneer(s) to be fabricated you can wear temporary veneers.
When you come back for your second visit, your porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth with cement.
2. Durability
With proper care, porcelain veneers should last 10-15 years.
While porcelain is fragile, once bonded to a healthy tooth it is extremely durable.
If damage were to happen to a porcelain veneer, it would have to be replaced, it cannot be repaired.
3. Aesthetics
The translucent properties of porcelain allow the veneer to catch light extremely similar to the way a natural tooth does.
While composite resin still looks great, porcelain is THE BEST aesthetic solution.
An incredible benefit of porcelain veneers is they are stain resistant. If you receive this type of veneer on most of your upper and lower teeth, this could mean no more having to white your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are not reversible.
4. Cost
Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite initially as the placement of porcelain take more time, expertise and resources.
The dental lab’s dentists work with are chosen very carefully and cost money to fabricate restorations
If you break down costs by how often you would have to replace / repair composite verse porcelain though, the cost could come out even over time.

Composite Veneers (All the Benefits)

What Are They?
Composite veneers are engineered resin affixed to the outer surface.
Made to match your teeth (or whiten) and improve your overall smile.
1. Time
Composite veneers can be done chairside in the same visit. Sometimes in may take multiple visits to get desired result.
Your dentist will match the resin to the shade of your surrounding teeth for the most natural look.
The resin is added to your teeth, cured and then polished. You can walk out the same day with a new smile!
2. Durability
Composite veneers are durable but not as strong as porcelain and is more prone to chipping
If you chip a composite veneer, you can repair it.
3. Aesthetics
Will look extremely similar to the way a natural tooth does but not as similar as porcelain (unmatched).
While composite resin still looks great, porcelain is unmatched.
Composite veneers are reversible if you are not happy at any point.
4. Cost
Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers initially
But if you break down costs by how often you would have to replace / repair composite versus porcelain though – the cost could come out even over time.

Before & After Porcelain Veneers

Are Veneers My Only Option If I Want to Improve My Smile?

No.

There are many options available.

Teeth whitening, crowns, composite bonding, etc.

The first step is to get an examination by one of our Dentist At My Gentle Dentist to determine which procedure best fits your situation.

2. Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can be one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your smile.

Here are your teeth whitening options (ordered by popularity).

Same Day Smile Makeover (Popular)

Thanks to advances in CAD / CAM technology, My Gentle Dentist has developed a method where you can achieve a:

You can have new crowns and veneers made on the same day and inserted in the matter of hours.

The benefit of the one-day dental restoration is that you can resume your normal activities immediately.

How Does the Same Day Smile Makeover Work?

During an initial consultation, we will cover all available options of improving your teeth before deciding on a treatment.

Once a Same-Day Smile Makeover has been confirmed as the right option, we will set a date to complete the transformation in few simple steps:

Before & After Same Day Smile Makeover

Before & After Same Day Smile Makeover

Step 01
Before commencing treatment, we start with a discussion on what the patient would like improved, and the outcomes of the procedure. We will then simulate (using tooth coloured materials) the sort of shapes and sizes we are aiming for, followed by photographs that allow us to view those changes and make a judgment call on what works, and what doesn’t.

Step 02
Once an agreement is made on the final outcome, we will save a digital record in our Intra oral Scanner TRIOS 3  unit so that we have something to compare the work to. This scan is then photo-stitched with the final design scan, so we can position our new crowns and veneers exactly where we mocked them up.

This is called Digital Smile Design.

Step 03
The process of shaping your teeth now commences, in order to accept the new dental work. We follow this up with a digital scan, and the digital design of the teeth. Using the mock-up as a guide, the individual teeth are then developed. Because this design process happens chairside, patients can remain engaged in the progress. Alternatively, if the patient would prefer to sit back and watch some TV, go for a walk, or even go home, they can do so until all their new crowns and veneers are finalised (approximately two hours).

Step 04
The new restorations are then closely examined, and tested to confirm shapes, sizing and positions. Once this has is completed, the new porcelain teeth are then glazed with various tints to closely mimic the aesthetics of natural teeth, and allow for a glossy, glass-like surface.

Step 05
Finally, the crowns and veneers are then bonded into place with a strong adhesive, with an expectation they will last for many-many years.

A Same Day Smile Makeover from us Could Leave You this Excited!

Before & After In Chair Whitening

In Chair Whitening

There is now a treatment called ‘same day whitening’ or ‘in chair whitening’.

This is a quicker way of whiten/ lighten your teeth as the process normally  is over within 1.5 – 2 hours with you walking out of the Dental office with whiter teeth than what your walked in with.

During this treatment, a powerful light source is exposed on the teeth to activate the chemical.

The light speeds up the chemical reaction of the whitening product and the shade change can be achieved more quickly.

This method of whitening can make teeth up to 4-6 shades lighter. It is important to remember that only natural teeth will be whitened, and that any crowns, bridges or dentures you have will stay the same shade.

 My Gentle Dentist Arana Hills will discuss this in detail this procedure with you.

Take Home Whitening

Your Dental team will make custom fit bleaching trays that perfectly fit your teeth and give you a whitening product to whiten / lighten the colour of your teeth.

The ‘active ingredient’ in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter.

With an average daily wearing time of 1-2 hours, this treatment can take around 3 to 4 weeks, depending on how long you keep the trays in your mouth each time, and how much whiter you want your teeth to be.

It is important to remember that only natural teeth will be whitened, and that any crowns, bridges or dentures you have will stay the same shade.

Can I Lighten the Colour of My Teeth?

Absolutely!

Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces.

It cannot make a complete colour change, but it should lighten the existing shade.

What Does Whitening Involve?

Professional bleaching is the most common form of tooth whitening.

3. Dental Implants

Dental implants are typically used to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are strong, durable and designed to look like natural teeth.

They are the longest-lasting way to replace missing teeth.

You can read more about dental implants and their benefits here.

4. Dental Bridge

A Dental bridge is typically used to replace missing teeth and is another option if your budget will not stretch to implants.

You can read more about Dental bridges and their benefits here.

5. Dental Crowns

Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth. 

They strengthen the tooth by covering and encasing  it.

They are also used as a method to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.

The crown is made in a Dental laboratory and later bonded to the tooth.

The main benefit of Dental crowns is aesthetics.

Crowns improve the appearance of your teeth and can help you feel more confident in your smile.

What are The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?

In addition to improved self-confidence, the main benefits of cosmetic Dentistry include:

Improved appetite: if your teeth are misaligned, cracked, decayed, or missing, you may find it difficult or painful to eat. Once fixed, eating can once again be pain free and enjoyable.

Headache relief: misaligned teeth can cause headaches; however, this pain can be alleviated with proper dental treatment.

Prevention: certain cosmetic dental treatments, such as bonding, can strengthen the health of your teeth and help avoid future Dental problems.

Look younger: cosmetic Dental issues, such as discolouration and dental erosion, can damage the tooth and make you look considerably older. Cosmetic dentistry can fix these issues and in turn, help you look younger.

Perfect smile: cosmetic Dentistry can correct aesthetic issues such as stains, cracks, and gaps. With proper treatment, you can finally have the smile you have always wanted

How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?

The price of cosmetic Dentistry will depend on the specific cosmetic Dentistry treatment you are receiving.

Some treatments are more expensive than others.

Other factors that influence the cost of your treatment might include the materials used throughout your treatment and the severity of your Dental concern (e.g. larger chips may cost more to restore than smaller chips).

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Cosmetic Dental treatment is absolutely safe when performed by registered and professional dentists.

The My Gentle Dentist practice undergoes stringent quality assurance to ensure we are providing our members with an exceptional experience at the dentist.

The Price of Cosmetic Dentistry Will Depend on the Specific Cosmetic Dentistry You Are Receiving

You can keep your smile bright and white by avoiding stain-causing foods and beverages, which may include:

You should also follow good oral hygiene practices and visit My Gentle Dentist every six months for a general check-up and clean.

Recovering from Cosmetic Dental Treatment

For most cosmetic Dental treatments, patients can resume work and their normal activities shortly after treatment – often the same day.

Patients who have received porcelain veneers, for example, often return to work the same day.

If you have opted to receive sedation Dentistry, you will need the rest of the day to recuperate and may need someone to drive you home following your appointment.

For the week following your treatment, you may initially experience slight teeth sensitivity and want to avoid very hot or cold beverages and food.

Recovery from Cosmetic Dental Treatment is Relatively Quick
