Shade selection for veneers

If you are considering the treatment options of veneers, shade selection could be more challenging than deciding whether to get veneers in the first place.

Picking a shade which blends in well with your teeth, skin and facial features will require you to work with your dentist to ascertain an accurate contrast that suits you best.

Therefore, your shade selection is crucial to achieve your desired results. Because of this, we have outlined what is involved in getting veneers and provided you with tips on how to carefully select the right shade for you.

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular way to enhance the look of your smile. Veneers are a thin layer of dental material which are placed over your teeth. As a result, they improve the aesthetic look of your teeth and help protect your teeth from further damage. Depending on the material, veneers can last over 10 years if you regularly maintain your oral hygiene.

Generally, veneers can be made from two different types of materials: porcelain and composite resin. Composite veneers consist of composite resin, a white filling material which are shaped directly inside your mouth.  Porcelain veneers are made from porcelain which is stronger and more durable than composite resin and is made through a laboratory.

Furthermore, veneers are custom-made to ascertain an accurate shape and colour to match your surrounding teeth. Depending on your case, you can expect to visit your dentist around three times throughout the treatment process.

At The White Bite, we offer several veneer treatments options including our Veneer Smile Makeover packages starting from $2,575. Fill out our free online consultation form so that we can recommend the best treatment option suitable for you.

When should you get veneers?

If you are looking to restore or enhance your natural smile veneers are the perfect option for you. There are several underlying reasons why patients undergo this type of treatment. You should get veneers when your teeth are:

  • Stained or discoloured
  • Chipped or cracked
  • Widely spread apart

Why do veneers come in different shades?

If you decide to get veneers, one of the first choices you will have to make is the shade selection of your veneers.  When selecting the shade, there are several things you must consider such as the colour of your surrounding teeth. In the end, you do not want you veneers to stand out or out of place as this can make your teeth look unnatural. However, if you do wish for a lighter result, you may require more veneers to cover more teeth.

How do pick a veneer colour?

To ensure you choose the suitable colour for your veneers, your dentist will use a shade card and compare it with your teeth.

Shade cards help your dentist to colour match your teeth with your new veneers as accurately as possible. A shade card comes in four different colours:

  • Reddish brown (A)
  • Reddish yellow (B)
  • Grey (C)
  • Reddish grey (D)
  • Bleach Shades (BL)

Tips for shade selection

For the shade matching process, your dentist will place the shade card adjacent to your teeth and select an accurate match. As a result, your veneers will be made to match this colour.

Don’t rush the shade selection

Take your time when you and your dentist are selecting your veneers’ shade selection. Make sure you choose the right option for you. Discuss your wishes and desired outcome with your dentist. It is important to select the shade of your veneers carefully as they will last a long time.

Use your eyes for guidance

In general, your veneers should not be any whiter than the whites in your eyes. The whites in your eyes can be used a guideline when deciding on the brightness of your veneers.

Consider your surrounding teeth

In most cases, you will not receive veneers on all your surrounding teeth. You may choose to get them whitened before you undergo your veneer treatment.

To enhance your aesthetic look, it is recommended that you choose a shade selection to match your natural teeth. However, you should further consult with your dentist to obtain your desired outcome.

Do some research

Before you undergo or even consider getting veneers you should do some research on similar veneer cases on our website. By doing this, you will begin to understand how well different shades interact and look on people.

Furthermore, you can understand how well your veneers will match your surrounding facial features such as skin undertones and eye colour. Therefore, you will be able to select the right shade for your treatment.

Treatments to replace a missing tooth

Your smile can have a major influence on how you perceive yourself. A missing tooth, likewise, can affect the way you feel. When you have a gap in your smile, it can hinder you from talking and smiling naturally with others.

A single missing tooth may also have effects outside of how things look. Your surrounding teeth may move, your bite may change and your jawbone structure may alter.

Whether you are missing part of a tooth, a whole tooth or multiple teeth, our team offer a variety of treatment options to restore your smile.

Fractured/Broken Teeth

Our teeth are strong, however, under impact, they can chip or break. Damaged teeth are often the result of sporting incidents, biting into hard foods or materials, or accidents.

At The White Bite, we offer several treatment options to repair and save a damaged tooth. The first question to consider is if the pulp of your tooth has been affected by the fracture. The pulp is the living, vital part of your tooth, sometimes referred to as ‘the nerve’. If you experience sensitivity or pain, it may be because your pulp has been affected.

Composite resin bonding

If your tooth only has a minor fracture such as a chipped edge, your dentist may be able to rebuild it using composite resin. This process is also called bonding. It is a quick and cost-effective treatment which can be completed within a single appointment.

Your dentist will apply the composite resin material to the tooth which adheres to the dentin and enamel. This allows your tooth to be rebuilt to its original shape and colour.

The procedure may have to be repeated every 5 to 8 years as the composite resin material can stain and wear.

Porcelain crowns

If your natural tooth structure has been severely damaged, your dentist may decide to recommend a porcelain crown instead. For this treatment, your dentist will remove small portions of the front, back and side of your tooth to create room for your new porcelain crown.

The crown is then cemented over the top of your remaining tooth structure. It can be designed to closely replicate your surrounding teeth in shape, size and colour.

Porcelain crowns can last 15 years or longer if well looked after. This makes the treatment a long-term solution.

Single missing tooth

If you have lost a tooth in its entirety, dental implants are a great option to replace the gap.

Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant, the fixture and the restoration.

The implant is placed into your jawbone and acts as the root of your tooth. A fixture connects the implant with the restoration. If only a single tooth is missing, the restoration may be a porcelain crown or a porcelain-metal crown.

Dental implant treatment is complex and requires healing time after the implant placement. This means, the procedure will require several dentist visits over a timeframe of 3 to 6 months.

The restoration will match your existing teeth in shape, size and colour. For this reason, dental implants can be considered a treatment option for missing front and back teeth.

Even though your dental implant restoration is not a ‘real’ tooth, looking after it is as important as looking after your natural teeth. The crown can last up to 15 years or longer if you follow a good oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing your teeth for at least twice daily for a minimum of 2 minutes and floss every day.

Multiple missing teeth

For patients who are missing multiple teeth, several treatment options can be discussed with your dentist. These include placement of several dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures.

The right treatment option for you depends on several factors such as the location of the missing teeth and your jawbone structure. It is also influenced by your budget and your overall oral health condition. Our team will help you to identify the best suitable treatment option for you.
