Get Your Smile Back with Cosmetic Veneers

If you suffer from minor structural or cosmetic issues with your teeth then cosmetic veneers may be beneficial to improve their overall appearance. Cosmetic veneers have a long history in successfully resolving minor cosmetic issues, and the current designs are more lifelike, reliable and convenient than ever before.

Whether you suffer from unsightly cracks, chips, gaps, tooth discolouration or minor misalignment these issues can undermine your confidence and, unfortunately, make you reluctant to smile. Thankfully cosmetic veneers provide a viable way to get the stunning smile you desire and deserve. They are even suitable if you would like to extend short or “stubby” teeth or simply would like to correct stains that don’t respond to professional teeth whitening.

Cosmetic veneers are considered a conservative treatment option, meaning they require few adjustments to your teeth – only a small layer of enamel is removed to apply them. They are individually sculpted for your mouth and smile expectations. At About Smiles we will help you set realistic smile goals and provide high quality options to deliver a lifelike and immediately confidence boosting transformation.

Our Available Veneer Varieties

We offer two varieties of veneer – porcelain and composite. Both options require you to keep up your regular oral hygiene practices to properly maintain (i.e. flossing and regular brushing). However, they do involve slightly different advantages and procedures.

Porcelain Veneers – These are fitted over three appointments. In the first appointment we create a digital mock of your teeth and the lab prepares a diagnostic model of how the veneers look. They are then tried on your teeth for shape, colour and fit until you are happy with the look. Then, at the second appointment, we prepare the teeth by carefully removing a layer of enamel before fitting your temporary veneers. At the third appointment, the final veneers are fitted onto your teeth.

Porcelain is a very good option because it has a true colour, it is highly resistant to stains (such as from wine, tea and coffee), it mimics lifelike aesthetics accurately and, when maintained correctly, can last up to 15 years or longer.

Composite Resin Veneers – Composite veneers are created from engineered resin and are a thinner option than porcelain. This provides two advantages: less enamel needs to be removed from the structure of the tooth prior to bonding and they can be made and fitted in a single appointment.

Composite options will last on average between four and eight years. This is because they are less durable than porcelain, and being a porous resin they are more susceptible to stains and chipping. However they cost significantly less and can be removed and replaced as necessary, making them perfect for smaller applications.

Minor details make major impacts - considering that your smile is one of your best, most noticeable accessories, veneers are a fantastic way to improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic veneers have been around for a long time and are a remarkable method for resolving minor cosmetic dental issues.

If you have a slight crack, chip, gap or tint to your teeth, an ideal way to resolve this is through veneers. Modern veneers are beautiful, natural and lifelike – giving you the smile you deserve.

If professional teeth whitening doesn’t do the trick with stained teeth, veneers are the next option to explorer - they’re simple to fit and only require a few adjustments to your teeth. We here at About Smiles will individually sculpt custom veneers to fit every unique patients specific need.

Our Veneer Options

Here at About Smiles, you can get two different varieties of veneers, both with varying intricate benefits. These options are porcelain and composite veneers – it’s important to note that both options require regular oral hygiene maintenance.

Below you’ll find an overview of the benefits and procedures for both of these options:

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are fitted over three appointments. During the first appointment, our cosmetic dentist will create a digital render of your teeth so we can prepare a veneer model. After we custom fit them in accordance with your teeth, we make modifications until you’re satisfied with the result.

During the second appointment, we’ll prepare teeth by delicately removing a layer of existing enamel before fitting your temporary veneers. For the final third appointment, our highly qualified dentists fit the finished product to your teeth for a permanent, beautiful and transformative smile.

These veneers are a fantastic option as their colour is natural and stain resistant and create a seamless addition to your smile. If you maintain your porcelain veneers properly, they can last over 15 years!

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers are made out of special resin and are far thinner than porcelain. During the process, less enamel requires removal for fitting, which takes only a single appointment!

A common issue with composite resin veneers is that when done improperly, they can look unnatural and stand out among your existing teeth. Our seasoned, professional cosmetic dentists will ensure that the composite resin veneers aren’t only of the highest quality but, that they’re also appropriately fit for a full, beautiful smile.

Composite resin veneers don’t have as long a lifespan as porcelain veneers and will last up to eight years if maintained properly. Resin veneers are also more susceptible to stains and chips but on the bright side, they’re a far more affordable option than porcelain and will still look just like natural teeth!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin covers attached to the front of your teeth that require removal of a thin surface layer of enamel and in some instances, none at all. They can be made from either porcelain or resin depending on your needs. Whether you have a number of existing fillings that are starting to become unsightly, or you just want to improve the appearance of your natural teeth, veneers can be a minimally invasive option to help you realise your smile goals.

How much do veneers cost?

The cost of veneers is variable and will depend on how many are required and the material used. Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers.

How long do veneers last?

How long veneers last is variable and like your natural teeth, veneers are also prone to staining, chipping and fracturing. If designed well and taken care of, including regular dental checks and good oral hygiene, veneers can last decades.

Can you whiten your veneers?

Unlike your natural teeth you are unable to whiten veneers, coming in for regular hygiene appointments to get them professionally cleaned can reduce staining.

How long does it take to do veneers?

This is variable depending on the type of veneers you have chosen to do. Composite and porcelain veneers follow different pathways. Composite veneers will be complete within 1 visits where the tooth is prepared and your teeth built with composite in one visit. Porcelain veneers include preparing the teeth on the first visit and fitting some temporary veneers followed by a second visit to bond the final veneers.
