A perfect smile does not have to exist only in your dreams. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. They are simply stunning! They improve smiles by whitening and straightening teeth, closing gaps, reshaping broken or worn front teeth and even help when when teeth are twisted or out of place.
The best feature of porcelain veneers is that your smile should look natural whilst allowing you to have a stunning smile in almost any colour, shape and style. At Killarney Dental porcelain veneers are created individually to enhance the shape, size, color, masculinity or femininity and symmetry of your smile.
Being such an art it requires knowledge of tooth shapes, morphology, translucency and the principles of Digital Smile Design (DSD). Digital Smile Design is one of the unique services offered at Killarney Dental where we plan and customise a smile that suits you. This is followed by creating the smile design digitally for you view prior to the procedure as well as trialling the design in your mouth.
Facial aesthetics and smile design is about more than just teeth – it’s about all the elements of the face and how they work together to achieve the most beautiful and natural smile. We don’t use the traditional method of smile design because it focuses on creating perfectly symmetrical teeth, which in an asymmetrical frame like the face actually creates disharmony. Dr Gilbert Stehbens has an eye for a perfect smile that complements an individual’s unique character and features.
Smiles make an impact on first and lasting impressions. Brighter, whiter smiles convey confidence, health and well being. Veneers can change a dull, dreary smile into one that lights up a room. We’ve come to notice over and over the way people’s confidence soars with a striking smile.
The personal, social and professional benefits for many are amazing and for some can be life changing. This can have a great impact on self confidence, career prospects and social interactions. Almost any smile, whether it is discoloured, crowded or missing teeth can be made to look great.
With porcelain veneers we not only work on the aesthetics of your smile, we offer you suggestions and options available to improve your bite (occlusion). Occlusion is an area of dentistry largely ignored in undergraduate dental training not only in New Zealand but around the world. This is the key factor behind the longevity of all dental work. It’s all very well having veneers placed but having it last decades is another matter entirely. Dr Gilbert Stehbens has had advanced training in esthetics and restorative dentistry at the world renowned Kois Centre in Seattle.
