Da Vinci Porcelain Teeth Veneers and Crowns

Da Vinci Veneers

Imagine being able to completely transform the way you look and feel about yourself in just a few weeks… Imagine being able to take years off your appearance without undergoing major surgery… Imagine being able to make your teeth white and straight without ever having to wear braces… That`s what veneers can do for you..

Veneers are a great way to dramatically and permanently improve the appearance, shape and colour of your teeth. They are usually used if you are looking to make significant changes to the colour, shape or position of your teeth.They are made up of  a very thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain bonded over your own natural tooth to improve its aesthetics or to protect its damaged surface.

Da Vinci veneers are for those who are looking for the best results money can buy. These veneers are only made by Da Vinci in California by skilled cosmetic ceramic technicians. They combine science and art to produce beautiful life-like veneers. We have done veneers for many of Ireland’s top celebrities including Georgia Salpa, Sarah Morrissey and Pippa O’Connor. These people who need to look good for their jobs and trust  Seapoint Clinic to give them the best possible results.

Before you get  veneers we will normally arrange a smile simulation which will show you how your new smile is likely to look. We can modify this as needed until you are happy without ever touching your teeth. Once you are happy we get the simulation  converted into porcelain in California before we bond them in place for you. Da Vinci veneers can be made in practically any shade you wish and can provide you with a beautiful smile to be proud of. As the largest provider of Da Vinci veneers in Ireland you can rest assured you will get the result you desire. Da Vinci also offer a lifetime guarantee against fracture of the veneers which is unique among dental laboratories.

Da Vinci Crowns

We are all familiar with the unattractive black lines that show over time around some old crowns. This is caused by corrosion of the metal over time. It can lead to discolouration of the root of the tooth and even the gum itself. Ceramic crowns are different. They are made entirely from porcelain which means they will never corrode and cause the problems with dark lines. Modern ceramic crowns have an ultra strong ceramic core which makes them just as strong as metal but without the unsightly metal. These teeth can look much more natural than crowns with metal in them as the metal colour does not need to be blocked out with opaque paints. This means the teeth can look much more lifelike and are indistinguishable from your own teeth.

We used William’s existing lip curve as a guide for a design with porcelain veneers that fitted William’s smile perfectly. Many people looking at the before and afters think it`s another person!

FAQs

What is a crown?

The difference between crowns & veneers these days is limited as they both tend to be made of white porcelains. The traditional difference was that crowns had metal in them and veneers didn’t. Also veneers were usually bonded to the tooth and crowns were cemented in place. The primary difference these days is related to the amount of tooth removal required. If the tooth needs more extensive preparation it is normally a crown and more minimal is usually a veneer. In terms of how they look and feel to you there is no difference.

What veneers do you use at Seapoint Clinic?

For the most cosmetic cases we use Da Vinci veneers from the U.S.A. which are used extensively  worldwide for their beautiful smiles. We also make our own veneers in house with our skilled technicians using the latest CAD/CAM technology. This allows us to combine great strength and beauty together.

Can veneers be used to replace missing teeth?

No. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A veneer acts like a false nail and sits on top of your own natural tooth and does not have a tooth root.

Why are veneers & Crowns so expensive?

Having veneers or crowns carried out can be a life changing experience, the results of which are literally visible to the world, day in and day out. It is easy to make things cheaply but much harder to do things well. When you have the job carried out correctly by an experienced team you don`t need to worry about things going wrong. You can rest assured we will work to get the result you will be happy with long term. Much better to make the right investment once rather than getting the cheap solution a few times.Getting the right look and feel involves considerably more efforts than a standard off the shelf product that fits no-one correctly.

How long does treatment normally take?

A typical case for veneers takes approximately 3 weeks. We firstly prepare the teeth by filing them lightly and then a few weeks later you are called back to have your veneers fitted. You now have a brand new smile! In the few weeks between your visits you will be given temporary veneers if needed for any gaps in your smile.

Are veneers difficult to clean?

You can clean and floss with your new veneers as you would with your own natural teeth.

Can I remove my veneers?

Your veneers are a permanent fixture onto your teeth. They have the potential to last a lifetime but are usually replaced every 10-15 years to keep your smile sparkling.

Will people know that I have veneers?

Your veneers will look and feel exactly as you want. You can decide the shade and the look of your new smile and your dentist will make sure your new teeth will blend in with your new smile.

Will I have sensitivity from veneers?

Normally you will have no sensitivity after veneers are placed. However, everyone is different and some people have particularly sensitive teeth which even brushing normally can be uncomfortable for. Talk to your dentist about your individual circumstances.

If I had gum disease when I had my own teeth, will I still get it on my teeth attached to my new veneers?

As with your own natural teeth, there is still a possibility that you can suffer from gum disease, if you don’t care for them as advised. If you keep your teeth clean and don’t smoke, then you shouldn’t have any problems. We recommend you see your hygienist regularly to make sure there are no issues.

What if I get hit in the face?

Although veneers are hard-wearing they can still be damaged by an accident or due to an impact injury in the same way that your natural teeth can. To protect your teeth from grinding at night, we recommend a mouth guard or for sports or outdoor pursuits we recommend a gum shield.
