Let us help to overhaul and enhance your smile with dental veneers at Marriott and Hand in MelbourneDo you find yourself hiding away from cameras and avoiding social events? Does your smile get you down on confidence, or feeling embarrassed? Cosmetic dentistry treatments may be able to help you achieve a smile you will want to show off. Crooked teeth may be able to be straightened, discoloured teeth whitened, and broken, chipped teeth concealed. Here at Marriott and Hand in Melbourne we are able to provide a number of methods to get our patients smiling, and one of the more popular treatments is porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?Porcelain veneers are thin shells which are placed over the front of your teeth to assist in enhancing colour, shape and the general aesthetics of your teeth. Veneers are bonded to the teeth in what we refer to as the ‘smile zone’; this is the six upper and lower teeth which are exposed when you smile.
What to expectThe process of fitting veneers takes two appointments. Your first appointment will allow our team to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent off to the lab where your fully personalised permanent veneers will be fabricated. Whilst your permanent veneers are made up, temporary versions are fitted to your teeth. Once the permanent veneers are ready we will contact you and book you in for your second appointment. During this session your temporary veneers will be removed and replaced with the permanent versions.
