Dental Veneers

What is a Tooth Filling?

Veneers are intended to enhance the appearance of teeth by covering their front surface with thin layers of material.

If your teeth have the following issues, you may consider getting veneers:

It’s important to note that veneers are only a viable option if your teeth and gums are in good health. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, veneers may not be appropriate as it could result in cracking of the veneers.

Styles Of Dental Veneers

There are two materials commonly used to make veneers: porcelain (ceramic) and composite resin (made of plastic and glass).

Porcelain veneers are known for their natural appearance and durability, making them a preferred option over resin veneers. However, it’s worth noting that porcelain veneers are more expensive than resin veneers.

Get Veneers in Four Visits

First Visit - Free Consultation

We offer a free consultation to:

1. Identify and address any underlying dental problems
2. Clearly communicate your desired outcome
3. Receive an estimate of the cost and timeline for the treatment

Second Visit - Smile Makeover Blueprint

The Smile Makeover Blueprint involves creating a 3D model of your new smile. To begin, the dentist will evaluate your bite and take impressions of your teeth. Next, smile design technology will be utilised to design the veneers.

Once the design is complete, temporary veneers will be created to help you visualise the final outcome.

Third Visit - Test Your New Smile

After a few weeks of wearing your temporary veneers, it’s time to provide your dentist with some feedback on their appearance and sensation. Your veneers can be customised to meet your specific desires and requirements, so it’s important to communicate any concerns or preferences to your dentist for fine-tuning.

Fourth Visit - Veneers Are Placed

The process of getting veneers involves a thorough cleaning of your teeth, followed by bonding the veneers onto your teeth, and making final adjustments for a comfortable fit. Although the entire process can take a few hours, you will be able to speak, eat, and smile with your new veneers on the same day. By the end of your appointment, you can leave the dental clinic with a flawless smile.

What is the cost of veneers?

The cost depends on the specific treatment required, and the person’s needs and aesthetic goals. The cost of porcelain veneers can range from $700 to $2,000 per tooth, while resin veneers can cost between $200 and $600 per tooth.


Typically, to get dental veneers you’ll require two visits to the dentist. The number of visits may vary depending on the number of veneers required. A waiting period of one to four weeks is typical for the fabrication of custom dental veneers by the dental lab. After this waiting period, the dentist can install your veneers in a single appointment.

The process of getting dental veneers is typically painless, with most patients experiencing only a sensation of pressure during the procedure. Some discomfort may arise during the enamel-shaping process, but the placement of the veneers is generally pain-free. Dentists may also use local or general anaesthesia to manage any pain and ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure.

Dental veneer treatments are considered safe, having undergone extensive testing and approval. Our professional team takes the time during the consultation process to thoroughly address any questions or concerns you may have. This ensures that all risks are effectively minimised, resulting in a smooth and safe treatment experience.

Dental veneers offer individuals the opportunity to attain their desired smile, which can significantly boost their self-esteem and self-confidence. Enhancing your smile is one of your best assets and can have a powerful impact on your overall appearance and demeanour.

The availability of alternatives to veneers depends on the individual’s desired smile goals. Since the veneer application process requires the dentist to reshape the teeth, it is an irreversible procedure, leading some people to seek alternative options. For those seeking a whiter or straighter smile, options such as dental bonding, teeth whitening, or Invisalign may be possible alternatives. However, it’s worth noting that there may be significant differences in appearance and outcomes between these alternatives and veneers.
