Cosmetic dentistry has changed dramatically and become more popular throughout the years. Dental veneers are popular as they require low maintenance and very little changes to the existing teeth. Only good oral hygiene maintenance as brushing and flossing is needed (unless chipping occurs) once treatment is finished.
So what exactly are veneers?
Veneers are ceramic (generally made of porcelain) ultra-thin shells which are fitted onto the front of the existing teeth. Due to the simplicity of the procedure, veneer treatment requires little to no anaesthesia. Porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting up to 10-20 years and require very little maintenance.
The overall treatment of veneers is made of 3 visits:
1st Visit- Initial consultation for a smile assessment and discussion of options and desired result.
2nd Visit– Preparation begins with fitting of teeth (when needed). Impressions are also taken in order to prepare the permanent veneers.
3rd Visit– Involves fitting or placement of veneers.
Cosmetic veneers are now very affordable and are nowadays used to address a vast variety of dental issues including:
At My Dentist St Leonards, we offer high quality and long lasting porcelain veneers designed and manufactured with state-of-the-art technology and local materials.

A dental checkup involves a thorough examination of your teeth for any signs of decay and cavities, loose teeth, broken teeth, impacted teeth, fillings needing replacement and bite problems. It also includes an examination of your teeth gums for any signs of periodontal diseases and your overall mouth for any potential signs of oral cancer and potential temporo-mandibular (TMJ) problems. Radiology imaging may also be used to identify signs of impacted teeth, malocclusion, cysts or any other problem that may not be easily identified in a visual inspection of the mouth.
A cleaning involves the removal of plaque and calculus that has built-up over time, also known as scaling and a prophylaxis treatment to remove bacteria accumulated on the gum tissue or along the gum line. After the cleaning, your teeth are polished and fluoride is applied to repair the enamel on the teeth and prevent tooth decay.
A dental checkup may also include discussions and recommendations on your diet or smoking practices and dental hygiene practices and how these may be having an effect on your teeth health.
Certain people should also visit the dentist more regularly than recommended. These include:
-People with diabetes
-People with weak immune systems.
