Porcelain veneers are an innovative cosmetic dental solution that has become increasingly popular in recent years. These custom porcelain shells are a relatively simple cosmetic procedure than quickly enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Attached to the front of your teeth, porcelain veneers cover cosmetic imperfections to give you that beautiful smile you always wanted. Using the latest digital technology, Lilli Pilli Dental proudly provides highly personalized, natural-looking porcelain veneers at our Caringbah South practice.
Why Choose Veneers?
Veneers are incredibly versatile and can conceal a variety of cosmetic imperfections such as:
Chipped or cracked teeth
Stained teeth that do not respond to traditional teeth whitening treatment
Irregularly shaped teeth
Teeth with wide gaps
Because veneers are highly stain-resistant, with proper care, a smile enhanced with veneers can last for years to come.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
During your initial consultation, you will discuss your goals for treatment. Lilli Pilli Dental can provide you with a wax mockup that will provide a preview of the results you can expect to achieve with veneers. He offers both traditional and no-prep veneers for qualified patients. At your initial consultation, he can discuss your options and help you choose which type of veneer is right for you. In preparation for traditional veneers, our Dentists will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. Depending on your case, veneers may be ready the same day, or may require longer to prepare.
If your case is suitable, we will take a digital impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth. Our in-office CEREC® machine allows us to then create your personalized veneers. The digital impression of your smile will guide robotic milling tools in crafting your veneers from porcelain selected to match your natural teeth.
If required, we will need to take a physical impression and send it to our technicians who will customise your veneers for you. All our lab work is crafted here in Sydney, and unlike many Dental practices these days, we do not send any work overseas (especially in Asia) to be completed at a lower price and subsequent lower quality. Our lab work is 100% Australian made with qualified technicians, and we stand by the quality of our work.
When the veneers are ready to be placed, he will lightly etch your teeth to create a stronger bonding surface before securing the veneers with dental cement. Finally, you can enjoy a beautifully enhanced smile.
Laser Gum Reshaping
Our team at Lilli Pilli Dental often performs laser gum reshaping in conjunction with placing porcelain veneers to achieve an even more dramatic enhancement. We can remove excess gum tissue and create symmetry in an uneven gum line. This laser offers incredible precision and actually seals blood vessels, helping to reduce discomfort and recovery time. Our team at Lilli Pilli Dental also offers gum reshaping with traditional surgical instruments, and recommend the best method to meet your cosmetic goals. Gum reshaping can be performed using a local anaesthetic, though this is usually not necessary with surgical lasers.
