Veneers

veneers

Veneers can help improve the appearance of your teeth by hiding any that are discoloured, or by reshaping them to create a nicer smile. Veneers can also be useful for closing up or minimising spaces in between teeth or for correcting the position of teeth that may be slightly out of alignment or simply to create a beautiful white smile if your teeth are discoloured, worn or chipped.

Here at Walkerston Dental, we can offer you two different types of veneers which are made from either composite or porcelain.

Composite Veneers
Our composite veneers are the quickest to complete as the tooth coloured composite material is applied directly to the front surfaces of your teeth where it is carefully shaped before being gently buffed to provide a very natural looking sheen. This treatment can normally be completed during just one visit and is a conservative and economical way to improve your smile.

 

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are durable custom-made (for colour and shape ) porcelain shells that are bonded over the front of your teeth, creating a beautiful and attractive smile. Your veneers are made by excellent Australian dental laboratories, so you can be confident of the quality of the lab work. They are quite durable and can function well for a few years giving you a long lasting beautiful smile.

If you want a smile makeover, veneers could be the treatment for you. Call us if you would like to know how it can help you.

We hope you are doing well.

Given the unprecedented situation and the uncertainties surrounding the COVID -19, we felt it was important to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our practice clean and safe for every single one of you who step inside and also for our lovely team.

We have always maintained rigorous infection control procedures and take pride that as an accredited practice, we have a clearly-defined system of measuring our compliance with regulations and guidelines, allowing us to continually improve how we operate our practice.

During the last few days, we have been closely following our professional health authority’s guidance and if you have been in recently, you would have noticed that we have implemented a few additional measures in the way we operate.

We will check on you to see if you are well before you come in. Please inform us before you come in, if you are unwell or have travelled overseas or have come in contact with anyone who tested positive or highly likely to be positive for COVID-19. We will reschedule your appointment. If you are in pain and need urgent dental treatment during this time, please contact the Base Hospital. They will triage and treat accordingly.

Steps taken at our practice

We might reschedule some non-urgent treatment in the coming days, but every effort will be made to help you in the best way possible if you are in pain or any discomfort with your teeth.

It is a constantly evolving situation and we understand that it can be stressful; we will have to stay calm but vigilant and help each other out the best we can.
