If you have minor smile imperfections porcelain veneers might be the solution. Veneers work in a similar way to false fingernails in that they cover up the face of the underlying tooth.
On average they are generally between 0.3mm and 0.5mm thick and are cemented to the surface of the tooth.
Above all veneers have the reputation of providing a beautiful natural shine, strength and durability. As a result of veneers being custom design and shaped, they are an ideal aesthetic solution for transforming smiles.
Amazing Smile Veneer teeth are all designed and made in Australia.
We do not source our veneers or crowns to be manufactured offshore. This helps to ensure high quality and accurate fittings for our patients.
Veneers are useful for:
- Improving the colour and shape of teeth.
- Closing spaces (gaps) between teeth.
- Concealing broken or chipped teeth.
- Covering stained teeth.
- Concealing crooked or misshaped uneven teeth.
Porcelain Veneers are thin porcelain material placed on the front of teeth to improve the appearance and colour of teeth. They are best used in cases where the patient’s teeth are; Chipped, broken, heavily filled, stained and discoloured.
Treatment can also be used for situations when the front teeth are short, crowded or in the wrong position.
Our cosmetic dentist can either shave a thin layer of tooth or may be conservative and not remove your structure. They will take an impression and glue in temporary veneers. The patient will return to get a final fitting of the veneers.
Porcelain is a far more durable material than composite resin and also require meticulous preparation. Porcelain veneers offer the most natural appearance that have a translucent element that is similar to tooth enamel.
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
At Amazing Smiles our Australian design and made porcelain veneers cost an estimated $1100 – $1300 per tooth. Please note, as your teeth are unique to you, prices may vary between patients. Additional fees may apply if extra treatment is required for the treated tooth or neighbouring teeth. This may include gum disease, or attention to damaged and decayed teeth. Specific quotes can’t be confirmed until our cosmetic dentists are able to sit down with you to examine the current health of your teeth and also extensively discuss a tailored plan specific to what your desire.
Composite Veneers are similar to porcelain veneers. They are an economical option of improving the patient’s smile and are more popular due to their affordability. Composite teeth veneers are made of dental composites which are molded and manipulated to size on the day.
They are then trimmed and polished to simulate the shape and colour of real natural teeth. The dentist will spend considerable time talking and discussing with patient details like colour, shape and overall expectations.
How much do composite veneers cost?
Composite veneers average around $320-$400 per tooth. As a result of less preparation, composite veneers are a cost effective alternative to porcelain veneers.
Please note, as your teeth are unique to you, costs may vary if extra treatment is required or vital to treated tooth or neighbouring teeth. Exact quotes can’t be determined until our cosmetic dentists are able to thoroughly examine the current health of your teeth and discuss in personal detail what you may require.
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Like Crowns and Bridges, it is reasonable to expect porcelain veneers to last an average of 10 to 15 years or more. Composite veneers tend to have a lower lifespan of 4 to 8 years.
Lifestyle effects the longevity of Veneers
On the odd and rare occasion porcelain ceramic veneers may come loose or fall out. To protect your veneers you need to maintain good oral hygiene. Healthy teeth and gums require brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once a day.
Similar to normal teeth, what you consume can effect the health of your veneers. Composite resin is a strong and dense material but are not as durable as porcelain.
Regular 6 monthly checkups by your Dentist or Oral Health Therapist is essential to the longevity of either composite or porcelain veneers. Failure to adequately maintain your veneers puts them at risk.
Does my Private Health help with Veneer Costs?
Patients who have Private Health Fund with extras cover will have benefits cover that may go towards veneers. Please contact one of our clinics nearest you, for details on how your private health fund may help with the cost of your veneers. Your private health fund provider may have different policies in place for aesthetic treatments.
Can you get a cavity under dental veneers?
As veneers act as the outer shell layer of your teeth, the natural tooth underneath is susceptible to decay and cavities. For this reason, it is essential and vital to routinely visit your dentist for check-ups. Dentists are able to examine the health of your teeth while also performing oral x-rays to identify if any decay could potentially be occurring underneath your veneers. X-rays also allow dentist to examine the health of the root of your teeth throughout the gum line.
Incorrect placement of veneers, fractures or cracking of veneers can accelerate the decay of underlying teeth since bacteria can effect the natural tooth. If such an unfortunate situation occurs it’s essential to visit the dentist immediately to help fix the issue. This helps to support the longevity of your natural teeth and veneers.
What foods should I avoid with Veneers?
To help with proper maintenance and the longevity of your veneers it is often recommended to avoid eating:
- Hard foods and fruits, ice, or hard lollies
- Avoid eating hard nuts and seeds
- Sticky foods, which may include caramel
- Hard meats and bones
- Staining foods and drinks
Can veneers be whitened?
Both porcelain and composite veneers are unable to be whitened. Traditional teeth whitening dental methods such as take home kits or in-chair whitening do not work on porcelain or composite resin materials.
Proper maintenance can help keep your veneers clean by removing surface stains. This helps to maintain their original shade appearance.
With extensive age, veneers may slightly shade to yellow due to wear and tear. This also may occur due to gradual build up of surface stains throughout the years from various foods and drinks. If you notice this, it is important to consult your dentist.
Porcelain veneers tend to be more stain-resistant.
