Things To Consider Before Having Veneers Brisbane Sure Dental

Hi, it’s Dr Michael Ghobrial here from Sure Dental, and we often have patients coming in looking for veneers to improve their smiles, and there are a few things that I like to discuss with our patients and so I thought I’d write this blog about things to consider before having veneers, and hopefully, this will be helpful for you if you’re considering having veneers, to see whether it’s the right thing for you.

Probably the first thing that needs to be considered is what are you actually trying to achieve with these veneers. Are we trying to improve the colour of the teeth? Are we trying to improve the positioning of the teeth? Are we trying to broaden your smile? Are we trying to restore chipped or broken front teeth? And so the answer to what you’re trying to achieve is really important.

As a general principle for my patients, we want to be as minimally invasive in our treatment as possible, and so if there is a way to achieve the result you want without having to do veneers, or without having to do something that’s going to need maintenance for your lifetime, we’re always going to consider that first. And so sometimes if it’s just a matter of improving the tooth colour, that can be as simple as tooth whitening. Or if you have a dark tooth from an old root canal, we can look at doing internal tooth whitening.

If it’s to correct the tooth positioning, sometimes a veneer is a great way to do it, but other times we can do things like orthodontics or Invisalign, or some clear aligner therapy, to improve the position of your teeth, and therefore you don’t require following up with the veneers. But sometimes orthodontics, or moving the teeth, isn’t something you want to do, sometimes it’s to restore gaps between teeth, sometimes it’s to do with chipped or broken teeth, or even covering mottled, really darker teeth that aren’t responding to whitening, and in those scenarios, our veneers are a really great consideration. And then you’ve got to consider, do we do a porcelain veneer, or do we go down the resin veneer road? And some of the considerations around that.

But certainly, things to consider before having veneers are what am I trying to achieve with the veneers, and is there a more simple way to achieve it? And if there is, then those methods ought to be considered and pursued, and if there isn’t, then there should be careful planning around the veneers to make sure that we achieve the smile that you want, and that should include a digital workup, a try and mock up smile so that we can see where we’re going, and plan things so that we’re conservative of the tooth structure, and a detailed discussion about porcelain veneers versus resin veneers.

If you’ve been considering veneers and want to have an assessment and have a look and see what your options are, feel free to send us an inquiry on our website at suredental.com.au, or a direct message through our social media, or better yet, give us a call on 07 3256 9111.
