Veneers offer a great smile at an affordable cost

A great smile is important. Not just because of how it makes you look, but how it makes you feel. Individuals who have a happy and bright smile are typically more confident than those who want to hide their mouth behind closed lips or who simply don’t smile as often as they would like.

If you’ve wanted to change your smile, it may be an easy cosmetic fix, such as teeth whitening or bonding to fix a chip or break. However, in some cases, patients that have several cosmetic flaws that need to be addressed, the most affordable solution is often to consider dental veneers. Made of very thin strips of porcelain, dental veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth and can hide many imperfections, including discoloration, minor misalignment, chips or cracks, and misshaped teeth. Veneers can be used on a single tooth or to cover several teeth.

The application of veneers usually requires two trips to the dentist. During the first visit, a very small amount of the tooth enamel will be removed. This ensures that when the veneers are placed, you will still have a natural looking smile. Then your dentist will take impressions. These impressions are used to create your dental veneers. It’s important to note that each set of veneers is specially created according to your dentist’s specifications. We can also offer same day veneers in some cases using our CEREC CAD CAM chairside system.

When the veneers are ready, you will return to the dentist’s office to have them placed. The dentist will check the veneers for fit and appearance. When you and the dentist are both happy with how they look, the veneers will be permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. For some people veneers may not be a suitable option if their teeth are too grossly malaligned, too broken down or exhibit heavy wear due to bruxism.

Caring for the veneers is just like caring for your natural teeth. Patients will need to brush and floss carefully and be sure to avoid biting on hard objects such as pens, sourdough pretzels, or ice, as the veneers can chip and break just like the natural teeth.

Dental veneers are a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to improve your smile and reboot your confidence. If you’ve been struggling with your smile, call the team at Smile in Style today. You can reach us in Sunbury 03 8001 6021 and Moonee Ponds 03 8400 4104.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
