If you’re looking for a way to enhance your smile, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance. Dental Veneers in Geelong can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, including chips, cracks, discolouration, and misalignment.

The process of getting porcelain veneers in Geelong involves a consultation with your dentist to discuss the treatment plan, the number of veneers needed, and the type of material to be used. Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory to be crafted. Once the veneers are ready, your dentist will bond them to your teeth using a special dental adhesive.
The entire veneers process in Geelong usually takes two to three visits. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth and take impressions. The second visit is when the veneers are placed, and the third visit is for a follow-up and to check the fit and appearance of the veneers. The entire process typically takes around two to three weeks. It is important to note that porcelain veneers are not reversible and require minimal maintenance to keep them looking their best.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer a number of benefits to our patients across Geelong and surrounds, including:
Porcelain veneers are already quite durable and are preferred for their longevity, but keeping your veneers in tip-top shape is essential for ensuring that your new smile stays gleaming for longer. To do this, there are a few tips to keep in mind:
Ensure that you’re committed to keeping your veneers and your teeth clean. This involves frequent and proper brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.
Although porcelain does not stain very easily, they are still susceptible to it and therefore, it’s important to mitigate this by limiting your consumption of foods and beverages that lead to staining such as coffee and red wine. If you do indulge in these foods (which is ok!) ensure to rinse your mouth out with water afterwards.
It’s important to continue meeting with your dentist so that they can examine your veneers, monitor their conditions and make sure that your oral health is good.
Any habits such as teeth grinding or clenching can put excessive stress on your veneers, subsequently leading to damage. If you are concerned about these habits, chat to our dentists who can give you guidance on how to combat the issue.
If you’re experiencing any sort of discomfort, sensitivity or notice any changes in the appearance of your veneers, contact our dentists immediately so that they can promptly address any issues to prevent any further damage.
