Is getting veneers at my dentist in Sydney CBD right for me?


Veneers are becoming an ever more popular form of cosmetic dentistry that can improve the overall appearance of teeth. But for those of us who have never heard of, or experienced, this treatment before, the natural questions of ‘what is a veneer?’ and ‘is it right for me?’ naturally arise. By taking a trip to the dentist in Sydney CBD, and having a detailed consultation, you can find out more about the purpose of veneers, and if they can possibly be used for any of the cosmetic worries you may have with regard to your teeth or mouth. In the meantime though, this article can hopefully help you to understand more about veneers, and give you some food for thought about whether you could potentially benefit from such a treatment.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a small, tooth sized cover, designed to go over the front of a tooth. They are usually made out of porcelain, or if not then a tooth coloured composite material instead. Porcelain is a very strong and durable material, which is able to withstand any damage which might be incurred by eating or chewing. They can be used for multiple purposes, such as the alteration of a tooth’s colour, shape and/or position in the mouth. One popular use of veneers is the covering of chipped teeth, in order to make them look and feel undamaged. Several things make veneers popular, including the fact that the shade of most veneers can be altered, which can be useful for lightening the appearance of a single tooth, or of multiple teeth. All in all, veneers are designed to help improve the appearance of teeth in a way that makes them look both natural and healthy.

If veneers sound like a treatment that you would be interested in, then consider having the treatment done with a dentist in Sydney CBD in our practice. Our well trained and knowledgeable dentists will be able to answer any questions you may have about veneers, and about any dental treatment that we offer. And of course, they can provide these treatments in a confident and professional manner.

What happens in the procedure to receive a veneer?

Our dentist in Sydney CBD divides treatment into a few, different phases. First, before the treatment starts, you will have a consultation with one of our dentists. This will allow them to discuss with you why you are considering having the veneer treatment, and what you hope to achieve by it. Once our dentist has discussed this with you, they will analyse your face using photos and X-rays, to ensure that the treatment results in your face look natural and symmetrical.

Then, our dentist in Sydney CBD will be able to design a ‘test’ version of the veneer which you should be able to try on. This will be designed using the analysis that our dentist has made of your teeth, and you will be able to see what it looks like and how it feels, and determine if you feel any alterations should be made to it for you. Once you have decided that you are fully happy with your prospective veneer and how it will make you, your teeth and your face look, our dentist can begin making the permanent veneer for you.

All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure the treatment is right for you.
