Dental Veneers Brisbane

Dental veneers can alter the outward appearance of teeth in many ways. They can whiten your smile, straighten slightly crooked teeth, cover up small chips and cracks, increase the size of your teeth or close small gaps.

Veneers are thin laminates that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are designed to look just like natural teeth enamel, and even reflect light in the same way. They're also hard-wearing and can last for many years, as long as you look after them.

Are porcelain veneers right for me?

Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can treat one or several issues you have with your appearance. We'll let you know if you're a candidate for veneers during your consultation with our dentists. We'll also make sure you have realistic goals about your outcome.

Depending on what you want to achieve, we may discuss alternative treatments such as teeth whitening, bonding to repair small chips and cracks or orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth, so you know all the options available.

What can porcelain veneers do?

Porcelain veneers can whiten discoloured teeth, straighten teeth that are slightly crooked, restore damaged or worn teeth or close minor gaps. Veneers can be fitted over one tooth, several teeth or as many teeth as you want.

How strong are porcelain veneers?

Our porcelain veneers are strong and durable, and comparable to natural tooth enamel. They can last for 10 years when you take good care of your veneers, follow good oral hygiene and keep up with your regular dental visits.

Are there other types of veneers?

We also offer composite veneers made from composite resin. These are a cheaper option than porcelain veneers, but they don't usually last as long, are more easily damaged and don't have the same natural appearance.

How are porcelain veneers fitted?

Fitting porcelain veneers usually involves 2 appointments at our dental clinic, though more may be needed in more complex cases. In total there are 4 stages:

Consultation and check-up

During your consultation, we'll tell you everything you need to know about veneers and answer any questions you have. We'll then arrange an appointment to examine your teeth and gums and make sure they're healthy, or if any other treatments are needed.

Preparing your teeth

Before veneers can be fitted, we need to remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. We'll also etch their surface to make it easier for the veneers to bond. We can give you a local anaesthetic so you won't feel any pain.

Taking impressions

Next, we'll take impressions (moulds) of your teeth that will be used to make your veneers. These impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be made. We'll provide you with temporary veneers until your next appointment.

Final fitting

We'll call you back when your veneers are finished, usually in around 1 week. We'll check that they feel comfortable and that you're satisfied with their appearance, make any final adjustments and bond them to your teeth.

What are the risks?

Your teeth may feel more sensitive after they've been prepared for veneers. This can last for up to several weeks. You should try to avoid especially hot or cold food and drink during this time. You should also avoid hard, crunchy or chewy foods while your temporary veneers are in place.

How much do dental veneers cost?

The cost of veneers varies for each individual. We can give you a quote after we examine your teeth and plan your veneers treatment. We also offer payment plans to help spread the dental veneers cost into more manageable payments.
