Dr Richards offers two dental veneers: composite and porcelain veneers, both of which are durable and a suitable alternative to teeth whitening for those with sensitive teeth.
The ultra-thin dental veneers are bonded to the front of the patient’s teeth to hide tooth imperfections. Unlike other restorative techniques, the procedure is minimally invasive and generally pain-free, though Dr Richards can use local anaesthesia to numb the area if necessary.
While both types of veneers can be used to correct gaps, minor chips, and other blemishes, Dr Richards states that porcelain veneers are much more durable, lasting up to twenty years with a proper oral hygiene routine. Moreover, they are stain-resistant and, due to their translucent property, can be crafted with a high degree of precision to match the natural look, feel, shape, and lustre of the patient’s surrounding teeth.
Composite veneers, however, are ideal for budget-conscious patients and can be completed in one visit. Individuals who are interested in dental veneers can schedule consultations with Dr Richards at https://www.drdaverichards.nz/veneers to have their teeth assessed and learn more about their options.
At Natural Smile Dental, patients can get dental veneers as part of a holistic smile makeover plan. The procedure can be done alongside other corrective, cosmetic, or restorative techniques to restore a patient’s smile.
A satisfied patient said, “I couldn’t be happier with the work Dave has done on my teeth. My veneers and implants look amazing. Dave is friendly and professional, and he goes out of his way to explain the details of all treatments. I highly recommend this dentist.”
