Dental Veneers Richmond Patients Love

If you’re considering dental veneers in Richmond then we’re here to help. Our dental veneers are made from a thin but strong type of porcelain and customised in shape and colour. They are then bonded to the front surface of your teeth to create a brilliant natural-looking smile.

Porcelain veneers can completely transform the appearance of your smile. Sometimes they’re used instead of crowns and offer a solution to a wide range of dental conditions.

Reasons For Dental Veneers

Veneers at our Richmond clinic are one of our most requested cosmetic treatments and can be used to create a beautiful even white smile. They can also be used to solve many dental problems including:

  • Deformed teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large
  • Minor misalignments
  • Obvious gaps between teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Severely discoloured or stained teeth

Like most dental restorations, dental veneers last a long time but not forever and will have to be replaced at some point. While traditional porcelain veneers have the ability to quickly transform a smile, high strength Tooth Helmet CEREC veneers have even more advantages.

About CEREC Porcelain Veneers

Traditionally, getting porcelain veneers would have involved multiple dental visits with some waiting time in between whilst wearing temporary teeth. However, with the use of robotised CEREC technology, the process of getting dental veneers in Richmond is now much more convenient. Now ceramic restorations can be created in a matter of minutes, meaning that in most cases, treatment can be completed in just a single visit.

CEREC utilises computer-assisted design (CAD) and a computer-aided manufacturing technology to digitally design and mill custom restorations. Almost anyone needing a ceramic restoration can benefit from this innovative robotic technology. Not only is it an ideal treatment for nervous patients, but it reduces the cost of treatment while eliminating the need for ‘temporary’ teeth porcelain veneers.

What’s the procedure for getting dental veneers?
The first step is to prepare the teeth that are being restored. Our TLC dentists use a CEREC intraoral scanner to take 3-dimensional images of the affected teeth.

The images are transferred to a computer screen allowing our dentists to view the teeth from every angle in 3-dimensions and design the final restorations with assistance from customised Tooth Helmet algorithms. Once the fully personalised designs are approved, the data is fed to our on-site robotic milling machine.

The robot then sculpts your porcelain veneers from a complete block of ceramic while you wait in the dental chair. Once done, they’re tried on for fit and comfort before being sent to the crystallisation chamber which increases the ceramic strength to 4 times the strength of a natural tooth. This is the stage when the veneer achieves Tooth Helmet strength. The veneer is then bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Polishing and buffing complete the procedure.

What are the advantages of CEREC porcelain veneers?
There are many benefits of these dental veneers including:

  • Fewer dental visits
