Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are an ideal solution for correcting a number of dental concerns, including chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. Porcelain veneers are also stronger and more durable than other types of veneers, making them a good choice for people who grind their teeth or have other habits that put stress on their teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth, giving you a more uniform and attractive smile. If you are considering porcelain veneers, be sure to consult with our qualified dentists to ensure that they are right for you.

Composite veneers

Composite veneers are a type of dental veneer that is made from a composite resin material. Unlike traditional dental veneers, which are made from porcelain or ceramic, composite veneers can be made from a variety of different materials. Composite veneers are less expensive than traditional veneers and can be completed in a single office visit. However, they are not as durable as porcelain veneers and may require more maintenance over time. Despite these drawbacks, composite veneers can be an ideal option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile without breaking the bank.

Who is best suited to dental veneers?

Dental veneers are an increasingly popular way to achieve a beautiful, uniform smile. But who is best suited to this cosmetic procedure? In general, dental veneers are most effective for people who have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the appearance of their smile. This might be due to stained or discoloured teeth, chips or cracks, gaps between teeth, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also be used to correct minor misalignments.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that are attached to the natural teeth to improve their shape, colour and overall appearance. They’re the perfect treatment option for those wanting to fix chipped, discoloured, small, or crooked teeth. Like starting with a blank canvas, we can dream into reality the smile you’ve always wanted.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

There are many benefits when it comes to placing dental veneers against your teeth. Along with improving your smile and increasing your overall confidence, dental veneers can help with the following:

  • Discoloured teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Smaller teeth
  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
How long do dental veneers last?

Composite veneers can last for anywhere between 3-5+ years while porcelain veneers can last around 15-20+ years. The longevity of the veneers all depends on how well they are taken care of. For proper care, it’s important to prioritise optimal oral hygiene.

Can veneers fall off?

In theory, yes. Veneers can fall off. However, when dental veneers are done to a high standard and under the right conditions, we don’t expect them to fall off if they’re taken care of in the right way. With composite veneers, we generally expect them to last anywhere between 3-5+ years. In saying this, the veneers don’t just fall off after the 5-year mark. The teeth will begin picking up stains and chipping, so the overall appearance of the veneers may degrade at this point. The same goes for porcelain veneers. We expect them to last anywhere between 15-20+ years, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that the veneers will just fall off after that point – they may just need rejuvenation.

Do your teeth need to be shaved or filed down when attaching veneers?

Making any changes to the natural teeth is solely dependent on where the current teeth are sitting and how we want the final alignment to look. This itself will influence whether or not any teeth need to be shaved. Let’s say someone with buck teeth comes in and their teeth are sticking out. For us to create that beautiful smile, we need those teeth to be sitting further back in order to change the shape, colour and texture. This means we’re going to have to move the teeth further back, or we’re going to have to file them down to create that space.

Here at Studio Smiles, we aim to minimise any filing of the teeth needed. In most situations, we’re able to apply dental veneers without the need to shave any teeth (minimal prep veneers), but when we do, we try to limit it to a maximum of 0.3mm to keep the teeth as healthy as possible. Often patients may have crowded teeth, so we might look at completing a 3–4-month period of Invisalign to get the teeth into a better position to begin with before proceeding with veneers. By doing a few short months of orthodontics before veneers we can get the teeth into a better position, meaning they won’t need any filing down at all.

What are my treatment options?

There are two types of treatments we offer here at Studio Smiles – composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are made from a tooth-coloured resin filling material, whereas porcelain veneers are made from a highly specialised ceramic.

The main difference between the two is cost, longevity, and the level of enhancement. Composite veneers are completed in a single visit directly in the chair, they are generally more affordable, not as long lasting (3-5 years), and not as natural-looking. However, for those patients wanting a budget option that is still able to vastly improve their smile, composite veneers are an excellent option.

Porcelain veneers are the gold standard for dental veneer treatment. This is because they are made outside the mouth by a master ceramist, allowing for the highest level of strength, quality, and natural aesthetics. Compared to composite resin, porcelain has superior optical qualities and being a glass material has the most life-like shine. Porcelain veneers generally last 15-20+ years when carefully taken care of.

Composite Veneers
A great, budget-friendly option, composite veneers can be applied to the teeth in just one visit, leaving you with a natural looking smile.

Porcelain (Ceramic) Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-coloured ceramic shells that are placed on the outside of your natural teeth. A mold of your teeth will be made and sent off to a dental lab where the veneers will be custom-made for you. This process generally takes between 1-2 weeks. Once they’re ready, the veneers will be attached to your teeth, leaving you with a beautiful smile.

At Studio Smiles, we take pride in our transparent approach. We endeavour to make the entire process clear for you so that you understand exactly what is happening, what can be done and the likely outcomes. We find that taking this extra time for a thorough approach means our patients stress less and feel better quicker.

Will my treatment hurt?

Here at Studio Smiles, we take pride in our emphasis on pain-free dentistry. We understand that going to the dentist can be daunting and that there are certain procedures you may find uncomfortable, so we use the latest techniques and technology to make you feel as comfortable as we possibly can. We also offer oral and IV sedation to take the edge off where needed, which means you can wake up to the smile of your dreams without remembering a thing! Book an appointment today.

How much will this cost me?

Costs will vary depending on the individual and the treatment necessary. We believe in a transparent approach, so we make it a rule to provide all relevant treatment options and costs, including the advantages and disadvantages where relevant. This is an important part of our informed consent process. Patients may choose to opt for one of our interest-free payment plans to have their smile transformed now, while having the flexibility to pay later on their own terms. Payment plans can help alleviate the financial barriers to a healthy mouth. We want to make sure you feel completely comfortable with the next steps throughout your entire journey.

What types of veneers can I get in Melbourne?

There are many different types of veneers available in Melbourne, so it is important to choose the right one for your needs.

Porcelain veneers are one popular option, as they are stain-resistant and durable. Composite veneers are another popular choice, as they are less expensive than porcelain and can be easily repaired if they chips or cracks. If you are looking for a natural look, then you may want to consider getting your veneers made from composite resin. This material can be matched to the colour of your teeth, making it difficult for others to tell that you have veneers. No matter what type of veneer you choose, you can be sure that you will be able to achieve the beautiful, healthy smile that you have always wanted.

How do I care for my veneers?

To help keep your veneers looking their best, it is important to practice good oral hygiene habits and avoid foods and beverages that can cause staining. Additionally, be sure to visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups. By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your veneers remain in top condition for many years to come.

Are there any side effects of veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that can give you a Hollywood-worthy smile. However, like any other dental procedure, veneers come with a few risks and side effects. The most common side effect is tooth sensitivity. This is because the veneers cover the natural tooth enamel, which can make the teeth more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. In rare cases, the teeth may also become discoloured from the veneers. Additionally, there is a small risk of the veneers chipping or cracking, and they

may need to be replaced after a few years. Overall, veneers are a safe and effective way to improve your smile. However, it is important to talk to your dentist about the risks and side effects before getting the procedure done.

What is the difference between veneers and crowns?

Veneers are made from thin porcelain sheets that are applied to the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues, including chips, cracks, gaps, and stains. Veneers are typically less expensive than crowns and can be completed in just a few office visits. However, they are not as durable as crowns and may require replacement every five to ten years. Crowns, on the other hand, are made from thicker porcelain or ceramic materials. They are placed over the entire tooth, covering both the front and back surfaces. Crowns can be used to correct more serious dental issues, such as large cracks or breaks.
They are also more durable than veneers and can last up to fifteen years with proper care. However, crowns are more expensive than veneers and require multiple office visits for placement. If you are considering veneers, it is important to consult with an experienced dentist to determine if they are the right option for you. In general, veneers are best suited for people who have healthy teeth and gums and who do not grind or clench their teeth. Veneers can last for many years with proper care, but they are not as durable as natural teeth and may require replacement over time.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers are often considered a more permanent solution than other cosmetic dentistry options, such as teeth whitening. This is because veneers are made of thin, custom-fit porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Once in place, veneers can last for many years with proper care. In fact, many people report that their veneers last for 10 to 15 years or more before needing to be replaced.
