Veneers in Coorparoo

What Are Veneers?

Veneers in CoorparooVeneers, also known as laminates, are thin, tooth-coloured shells that are hand-crafted and shaped to bond to the front of your teeth. Some like to compare a veneer to that of a fake nail that is worn on top of a real nail for aesthetic purposes, only much stronger and more permanent. You may be an ideal candidate for veneers if:

  • Your teeth are discoloured
  • Your teeth / tooth is chipped
  • You have a gap between your teeth
Some patients opt for veneers over a crown if the tooth remains strong and healthy enough to support the veneer.

During a veneer treatment, our Coorparoo cosmetic dentists will remove a thin layer from your tooth and take an impression to ensure optimal results. Then, you’ll return to our practice a couple of times to fit and place the veneers, which will take approximately 1-2 hours per visit. If you practice good oral health habits, your veneers will be with you for many years to come.

Types of Veneers

At Complete Dental Coorparoo, our cosmetic dentistry team in Coorparoo striveto ensure patients receive the best and most respectful care possible unique to their specific needs. We’re happy to offer two different types of veneers for your case:

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution for chipped, uneven, or discoloured teeth. The teeth are prepared by removing a small amount of the front surface of the tooth (about 0.3 to 0.5 mm — the thickness of a fingernail) to allow space for the porcelain. A thin sliver of porcelain or composite resin is then permanently cemented to the front teeth.

Direct Laminate Veneers

Direct laminate veneers are a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers as they seldom require any removal of tooth structure. These veneers are created by applying layers of bonded ceramic composite to the surface of the tooth which cures and hardens. This is polished to create a natural looking tooth. Direct laminate veneers are easier to apply on suitable teeth, but are not as strong as porcelain veneers and may not last as long.
