Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers

The simple way of explaining veneers is to look at it as replacing the front portion of your tooth with a porcelain filling. It can change the shape, size, colour and to some extent the position of your tooth. Usually done on multiple teeth, it’s a fast treatment option to enhance your smile. However not everyone is an ideal candidate for a veneer and when you get veneers done there is lot of care and maintenance required.

Other types of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • crowns
  • white fillings
  • bleaching and
  • tooth whitening

Dental veneers are a highly effective way of restoring the look of your smile through a non-invasive procedure which involves placing very thin veneers over the tops of your teeth. They are commonly used if you have chipped or cracked teeth or if you have intrinsic staining which won’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. Dental veneers are functional, effective and affordable – find out more today!

Carillon City Dental provide dental veneers as a popular cosmetic dentistry option and this treatment is both fast and effective, often used on multiple teeth. Many people find they have long term success when they decide to proceed with dental veneers if they follow the proper care and maintenance procedures.

The process of dental veneers

Dental veneers involve wafer thin pieces of porcelain or composite material being adhesively bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Dental veneers are a quick option to improve the quality of your smile and it generally takes two to three visits to complete the process. Dental veneer treatment involves a thin layer of enamel being removed from your teeth, often with the help of local anaesthetic, so an impression can be taken. Your veneers are then fabricated and fixed to your teeth. Dental veneers can be a more cost-effective alternative to the more expensive options of dental crowns.

Dental veneers can change the size, colour and shape of your teeth and your dentist at Carillon City Dental will help get the look of your veneers just right so you will be left with a smile you’ll be wanting to show off.

Before every veneer case we carefully plan the final result using digital scanning and design technology. We produce a mock-up of the final veneers which we are able to apply to your teeth with temporary composite resin material to show you final result before we have even touched your teeth. This is an invaluable exercise to give all our patients an accurate insight into their final result and smile.

Choosing dental veneers

There are a number of reasons why dental veneers may be appropriate for you, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Intrinsic discolouration on teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Gaps in teeth

Many dentists provide the option of either porcelain veneers or composite veneers. Composite veneers tend to cost less than porcelain but are less durable and long lasting. Porcelain veneers come at an increased price but tend to look more natural and can last up to 15 to 20 years.

Porcelain or Composite veneers

Veneers are made from either porcelain of composite resin materials. Both have their advantages and disadvantages:

Porcelain veneers

  • Lab made
  • Hard wearing and durable, typically last 10 years to a lifetime
  • Do no stain or chip in time
  • Do require some minimal tooth preparation
  • Cost from $800 per tooth

Composite veneers

  • Planned in lab but handmade by moulding and bonding composite resin directly onto the tooth surface
  • Can often be placed onto the tooth with no tooth preparation if the teeth are adequately aligned and therefore can be reversible
  • Not as hard wearing or durable as porcelain. Often chip and break and require a lot of maintenance.
  • Typically last 3-5 years
  • Can stain and require regular polished from your dentist.
  • Cost from $350 per tooth

The cost of dental veneers

The cost of your dental veneers will depend on a number of factors including the type of material that you’ve chosen for your veneers, the issues that your veneers will be addressing, the number of veneers you require and whether your private health fund offers any cover for this particular treatment. At Carillon City Dental we offer our porcelain veneers from $800 per tooth and our composite veneers from only $350 per tooth.
