What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are like a mask for your teeth. These wafer-thin coverings fit over the front of your teeth to hide stains, gaps, chips, cracks, and even minor misalignment. Whether you’re covering a few or all your teeth, you and your dentist in Melbourne will work together to create your veneers to your liking, ensuring the color, size, and shape give you a flawless smile.
What is the Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers?
The process is simple, but it does require two visits to our dental office. The first will include Dr. Chenet administering local anesthesia or sedation, as he will need to prepare your teeth for your veneers. This will require removing a small portion of the enamel from the surface of your teeth. Why do we do this? It’s important that the veneer adheres to your natural tooth securely, so your tooth must be altered slightly.
He will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to the lab for creation. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our dental office and have them put into place. Dr. Chenet will ensure a proper fit and placement, and you’ll be walking out the door with a brand new smile.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are contact lens-thin veneers that can correct an array of cosmetic imperfections with no shots and no drilling! If you are not happy with the shape, color, or placement of your teeth, Lumineers may be the cosmetic dentistry treatment for you. With Lumineers, your dentist can close gaps, correct chipped and mildly crooked teeth, change the shape and color of your teeth, and in short, give you the movie star quality smile of your dreams!
What is the Process for Lumineers?
We can transform your entire appearance painlessly in only two visits. The first visit will consist of taking impressions of the upper and lower teeth and sending them to a lab to design/make your Lumineers. At the second visit, usually only a couple of weeks later, your dentist will bond them in place. That’s it! With only two easy and comfortable appointments, you can have the beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted. You must qualify for this procedure to be done in our office.
