What Issues Can Dental Veneers Solve?
- Discoloured teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven or irregular teeth
Types of Veneers
- Porcelain: Porcelain will last between ten to fifteen years and help your teeth look shiny and bright.
- Composite: Composite resin is more affordable but may not last as long. They require more attention to oral hygiene and care, as well as more maintenance.
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells placed over the existing teeth to provide a new, aesthetically pleasing surface. These dental veneers are made from translucent tooth coloured porcelain which acts as a durable, robust replacement for natural teeth. Porcelain veneers will transform a range of cosmetic concerns, including the colour, shape, and alignment of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers will leave your natural tooth structure intact by simply covering any aesthetic imperfections rather than dramatically altering the entire set of teeth.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Every premium cosmetic dental procedure begins with a consultation session with one of our expert dentists. This appointment will include an extensive examination where we will recommend customised treatment options for you. Through a smile analysis, we will discuss treatment objectives and desired outcomes. We will then begin the procedure and start to form your dream smile.
Once we have a digital design that works for your teeth, we will begin to adjust and refine different characteristics of your dental veneers, depending on your preferences. This includes shape and colour. Once all prep work is completed, impressions will be taken and sent off to our lab so that your premium porcelain veneers can be created.
Shade and position
During the shade and position process, you will be able to change shape and colour depending on preference and your desire for aesthetic appearance. We ensure that your porcelain veneers are custom-made directly for you, and therefore, we listen to all your input.
Trial and implementation
Once your porcelain veneers are made to your standards, we will remove your temporary dental veneers and replace them with your new shells. Your new smile will be permanent, attractive and transform your entire look.
Composite veneers are made from resin material and are used to make moderate changes to the shape of your teeth. By utilising a bonding method, our dentists will repair the look and structure of your original teeth. There are two types of composite veneers that our patients can choose from:
Direct Composite Veneers
Direct composite veneers are traditional dental veneers and applied directly to your teeth. The application process is minimally invasive as it doesn’t take dentists long to prepare your teeth for the procedure. Composite veneers will be bonded to your teeth within the first appointment to provide instant results.
Indirect Composite Veneers
The application process for indirect composite veneers is different and requires your teeth to be prepped before the dental veneers can be bonded to the tooth. Instead of the veneers being placed into the tooth during the first appointment, they are custom-made indirectly and in a dental laboratory. Until your final set of veneers are created, you will be given a temporary set to wear. At your next appointment, your temporary set will be removed, and your indirect composite veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth with a layer of adhesive. Indirect dental veneers will be more expensive as they can withstand more abrasions and resist fractures.

The Benefits Of Dental Veneers
There is a range of benefits attached to both porcelain and composite dental veneers. While deciding what type of dental veneers is right for you depends on various factors – including the severity of your dental issues, price, and the natural structure of your teeth, both will provide great results and a transformed smile.
Cosmetically Repair Teeth Simply And Easily For A Natural Appearance
Both porcelain and composite veneers are specially designed to fit the needs of the patient. Our custom-made dental veneers ensure attractiveness, functionality, and major cosmetic repairs. The application of dental veneers is simple and easy, meaning they allow for a reliable restoration treatment when wanting to restore the natural appearance of your teeth.
Minimally Invasive Procedure
Restoring the look of your teeth with dental veneers is less invasive than a range of other cosmetic dentistry treatments. The method of attaching your dental veneer to the surface of your natural teeth requires shaving off a small layer of the tooth’s front surface. The bonding will then occur using a special adhesive. Our dentists may make small adjustments in size or colour during this process to ensure your teeth have the most natural look and feel possible.
Permanent And Durable
Dental veneers are permanent replacements for real teeth and resist decay and staining for better performance and functionality. Dental veneers are non-porous, meaning they are extremely stain-resistant. However, the durability of your dental veneers will depend on what type of material they are made from – with porcelain veneers being more robust and stronger than traditional composite veneers.
Maintaining your dental veneers is a straightforward and easy process. Care for your veneers as you would a natural set of teeth. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing once, and continuing to maintain good oral health. Scheduling regular check-ups with your dentist and routine cleaning will also help your dental veneers last for as long as possible.
Perfect Fix For Enamel Loss
While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it can be easily worn out by highly acidic foods, vigorous tooth brushing, and gum disease. Once enamel wears away, it does not come back, and therefore, must be protected. With dental veneers, you can replace enamel that has already been lost and prevent any further enamel from disappearing.
A Worthwhile Investment
Dental veneers can become a worthwhile investment that enhances looks, functionality, and confidence. While replacing enamel, veneers can also whiten your overall set, cover aesthetic issues, and boost self-confidence. Dental veneers are long-lasting and personalized to fit every individual’s unique smile.
