Veneers

Enhance your smile with dental veneers

If discoloration, chipped teeth, or unwanted spaces between teeth are making you hide your smile and disrupting your self-confidence, coming to our Brisbane practice is the first step to handle it. At James Fitzgerald Dental, we specialize in advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures that involve zero pain and yield maximum results.

We offer porcelain and ceramic veneers that not only resemble your natural tooth enamel but cover a range of dental imperfections effectively.

What are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin shells that fit on your teeth and can be colored precisely to match existing teeth. We can fit veneers on a few misshapen or discolored teeth or on all visible teeth to create an even-colored, beautiful smile.

Porcelain veneers are strong, durable, biodegradable and closely resemble the natural color of the teeth. Ceramic veneers are made of materials like zirconia, which are durable and resistant to bacterial infection. They can be synthesized to match the color of your natural teeth and to match your aesthetic goals.

When combined with other dental procedures such as crowns or teeth whitening, veneers give you a natural-looking, attractive smile.

Who is a candidate for veneers?

Porcelain or ceramic veneers are versatile and effective cosmetic dental devices that can be used to hide different dental flaws. Veneers are the right option for those who have any of the following conditions:

  • Chipped teeth or a cracked enamel
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth with gaps in between
  • Discolored teeth

Veneers are also the perfect solution for those who wish to significantly improve the aesthetics of their smile without the hassles of extraction and replacement with bridges or crowns. Without involving elaborate procedures, veneers can give you the winning smile of your dreams.

The process of fitting veneers

At the initial consultation, Dr. Fitzgerald reviews your medical and dental health while discussing the procedure as well as its outcome. The doctor first prepares your teeth by lightly buffing them, shaping the surface, and removing a tiny layer of the enamel to enable the veneer to fit precisely. He then takes a digital impression of the teeth using an advanced 3D imaging system. Using the impression, porcelain or ceramic dental veneers are custom-made to precisely fit the affected teeth. The veneer is also custom color-tinted so that it blends perfectly with the surrounding teeth.

During your second visit, Dr. Fitzgerald will place the custom-made veneers and ensure they fit comfortably. If necessary, slight adjustments to the veneer’s color can also be made at this point by using an appropriate color of the cement that bonds the veneers. A special liquid is used to clean your teeth to facilitate the bonding process, and the cosmetic dentist then applies the veneer using the cement. The bond is hardened and set with the help of a light beam.

You will be given temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready, which can take up to seven days.

Is there any downtime?

Most of our patients experience no pain or discomfort during the veneer placement and generally the procedure does not require anesthesia or sedation. Dr. Fitzgerald uses his extensive experience and skills to ensure the procedure is painless and smooth. He may use mild sedation or local anesthetic for those who have sensitive teeth. With no downtime involved, you will be able to resume your usual activities after the procedure.

Long-lasting pleasing results

At our practice, clinical excellence, patient education, and follow-up care, are top priorities. Dr. Fitzgerald gives detailed instructions on how to care for your teeth after the veneers are placed. By following his instructions, you can ensure the veneers last for decades. The materials used in veneers are stain-resistant, durable, and strong. They match the original color and ensure your treated teeth look natural, bright, and beautiful. Good oral hygiene practices and regular oral exams at our practice is the recommended way to maintain the glow of your pearly whites.
