Frequently Asked Questions
Is porcelain the ‘Best' material to use?
This can only be determined by the individual circumstances of each patient. Porcelain maintains its lustre and does not stain. Provided that regular six monthly check-ups are attended, Porcelain Veneers can last for 10 – 15 years and they also come with a 5-year sliding scale warranty.
Is tooth reduction required?
At Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry we aim to have no or minimal tooth reduction. With the majority of cases, tooth reduction is not necessary. However, certain situations do require a small amount of reduction. Either way, if tooth reduction is required, it is very minimal.
Are Porcelain Dental Veneers permanent? Are they replaceable?
Porcelain dental veneers are a permanent restoration, and their life span is approximately 10 – 15 years. We offer a 5-year sliding scale warranty for relpacement provided regular six monthly check-ups are maintained and a night guard – to protect your teeth from grinding in the night – is worn.
If chips or fractures happen porcelain veneers can be replaced easily. If no tooth reduction has been required, the veneers can be removed, and your teeth returned to how they were prior to the veneers being placed before a new veneer is placed.
Can Porcelain Veneers break or fall off?
The cement that is used is extremely strong and prevents the veneer from falling off. Chips and breakages are extremely rare. Nevertheless, if a veneer does chip, it can be replaced.
Will they wear down?
Porcelain veneers do not wear down with general eating and grinding.
Will they look natural?
Porcelain is the closest looking material to a natural tooth. Porcelain veneers maintain their shine and appearance just like a tooth. Shade matching allows a likeness that only a true professional will be able to tell the difference.
How do you colour match?
The material that we use for the veneers has a quality of taking and reflecting the surrounding colours making the veneers match the rest of the teeth seemlessly. If 8 – 10 teeth are being veneered, you can choose the colour porcelain you want and for example go for a lighter shade.
How long does it take?
The procedure can vary depending on all of the treatment recommended. Porcelain veneers take a few days from impressions to cementation, or be done while you wait if we have only one veneer to do.
