Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are probably the most aesthetic means of creating a more pleasing & beautiful smile.

Dental Veneers are a conservative approach which means you do not have to cut a lot of tooth structure (approx. 0-5mm) in order to achieve the results you are after. It is similar to placing a false fingernail on your nails.

Dental veneers provide the ideal solution for many cosmetic dentistry issues including chipped and uneven teeth, discoloured teeth, gappy teeth, damage resulting from gum disease, short teeth, and small teeth.

In the initial consultation, we will discuss with you the various options and guide you to the most suitable approach.

We also offer bonding which is a very simple cost-effective way of closing gaps, removing other defects, changing rotated or broken teeth. It involves simply bonding a cosmetic filling material matched to your tooth colour without the need for any tooth tissue removal.

We offer two different dental veneer options:

Dental Veneers Options

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ideal for more extensive treatments and where longevity of the veneer is the most important factor. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed and fitted, with great care taken to ensure a great colour match to your surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers have a lifespan of about 15 years.

Usually, 2 appointments are required. Porcelain veneers involve an initial appointment for ‘tooth/teeth preparation’. At the following appointment, the porcelain laminate is bonded to the prepared tooth/teeth. You may be requested to contact our laboratory technician for a shade match appointment that will help us to achieve an excellent result.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are ideal for minimising tooth tissue removal and/or where the budget is a factor. The lifespan is about 7-8 years. They can be done in a single appointment.
