Veneers For Gaps
Every smile is unique, and while some people love the gap between their front teeth, others can find it incredibly detrimental to their self-esteem. If your gap is making you feel self-conscious, then veneers can be a quick and affordable solution. While there are many different solutions for teeth gaps in Perth, they are often expensive and timely. That’s where veneers come in! Whether you’re unhappy with a gap between a few teeth, or specifically want to fix the gap between your front teeth, there are different types of veneers for gaps, depending on the size of the gap.
Front Teeth Veneers
Front teeth gaps are a common issue for our clients. The space between your pearly whites is a common dental occurrence — orthodontists call this a ‘Diastema’. Some like the individual character it brings, while others might prefer a more conventional smile. Front teeth veneers are a fantastic affordable option if you’re looking to close the gap between your front teeth. Check out our Porcelain Veneers Case Study and how we helped Elyce close her front teeth gap with veneers.
Composite Veneers For Gaps
Composite veneers are ideal for teeth gaps that are small to average in size (1-3mm). Composite veneers require minimal tooth preparation and are less expensive than porcelain veneers as they are directly built-in in the dental chair and only require a single appointment. The Composite resin is applied one layer at a time to slowly cover the existing tooth. Each layer of a composite veneer for gaps is shaped and cured with blue light by your dentist until the final result is achieved.
Porcelain Veneers For Gaps
For slightly larger gaps, porcelain veneers are the way to go! Porcelain veneers are better for gaps that are larger as they are thin shells of porcelain that cover each tooth, allowing for more modification. They are much stronger than composite veneers, however, they do require slightly more teeth preparation. Once impressions have been taken with our state-of-the-art Trios Scanner, and custom veneers have been created with the use of revolutionary technology, you’ll be called back for a second visit to have your permanent veneers secured into place.
