Acacia Dental Group Provides Information on How to Determine If Veneers in Canberra Are Worth It

Acacia Dental Group, a dental practice in Phillip, ACT, Australia, has provided information on how to determine if it is really worth it to get dental veneers in Canberra. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain covers that are bonded permanently to the front of teeth in order to enhance their shape, length, size and colour. Dental veneers are designed to be strong and durable such that patients can have peace of mind. However, the Acacia Dental Group advises people considering dental veneers to take into account a number of factors before deciding to undergo a porcelain veneer procedure.

First of all, it is important to realize that the placing of dental veneers on the teeth is actually a complex dental procedure and it is vital to make sure that the dentist who will perform the procedure is really knowledgeable and well-experienced with regards to dental veneers. The dentist must have the appropriate experience and qualifications to ensure that the results would really enhance the patient’s smile and that the attached veneers are truly strong and durable.


Second, it is essential to realize that every person’s smile is unique, which means that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to improving a person’s smile through the use of dental veneers. While some patients believe they already know what needs to be changed in their teeth, it is advisable to trust one’s dentist, who has the experience and knowledge to determine the changes that would be most appropriate in enhancing a patient’s smile in the best possible way. The dentist knows the many factors that can contribute to a beautiful smile, such as the expressions that the patient makes, the way the patient talks, the patient’s personality, and more.

Third, veneers can whiten the teeth permanently. Thus, dental veneers may offer a better alternative to teeth whitening procedures. While the effects of teeth whitening treatments will soon wane after drinking coffee and wine frequently, dental veneers are basically stain resistant.

Fourth, it is vital to know that veneers need not be installed for all front teeth. It may suffice to put veneers on a few front teeth, allowing the patient’s smile to be modified entirely. Fifth, the dentist can make temporary veneers out of liquid composite and the patient can try those to find out what his or her smile would look like after the veneers have been placed.

Sixth, veneers are not actually cheap but are an investment towards having a better smile in the future. And just like any investment, it is important to take care of it. Thus, it may be a good idea to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing, rinsing and flossing to make sure that the veneers are kept clean, including the rest of the teeth and gums.

Seventh, the dental veneer procedure may be a little painful or at least uncomfortable after local anesthesia has been applied. It may take a few hours to complete the process, especially if a full set of veneers is to be fitted.

Eighth, it is important to know that old veneers can be replaced with new ones after about 15 years when they start to lose their sparkle. And finally, it is advisable not to aim for perfection. This might just lead to disappointment. Having a perfect set of teeth may not actually look natural and will not help in enhancing one’s smile.
