A beautiful smile can brighten anyone’s day, but for some people, it’s something they struggle to achieve. If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. At Studio Smiles, we specialise in providing high-quality porcelain veneers in Melbourne. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They are an excellent option for people who have gaps between their teeth, misshapen teeth, or stained or discoloured teeth. Veneers can also be used to correct bite issues and improve the overall appearance of your smile. We are available for all families in the Bayside area of Melbourne including Highett, Bentleigh, Bentleigh East, Beaumaris, Hampton, Hampton East, Sandringham, Cheltenham, Moorabbin, Mentone, and Black Rock. If you’re interested in learning more about porcelain veneers, we invite you to contact us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you decide if veneers are right for you.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. And it’s no wonder why – they can transform your smile in just a few visits to the dentist. But who is an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers? First and foremost, you should have healthy teeth and gums. If you have any tooth decay or gum disease, your dentist will likely recommend treating those conditions before moving forward with veneers. You should also have realistic expectations about what veneers can do. They can improve the appearance of your teeth, but they can’t fix every problem. For instance, if your teeth are severely misshapen, you may need orthodontic treatment before getting veneers. Talk to our dentists about whether porcelain veneers are right for you.
The Studio Smiles procedure is simple and efficient, and our skilled technicians take great care to ensure a perfect fit. First, we take a mould of your teeth in order to create a custom set of veneers. Then, we use a special bonding agent to attach the veneers to your natural teeth. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile that will boost your confidence and help you look your best. Schedule a consultation today to learn more about how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
If you’re looking for porcelain veneers in Melbourne, Studio Smiles should be your first choice.

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that can give you a beautiful, white smile. However, they are also a major investment, and it is important to weigh the pros and cons before deciding if they are right for you. One of the biggest advantages of porcelain veneers is that they are extremely durable and can last for many years with proper care. They are also resistant to staining, so you won’t have to worry about your coffee or red wine habit taking a toll on your teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers can be customised to achieve the exact look you desire
When it comes to improving the appearance of your teeth, there are a lot of different options to choose from. But if you’re looking for a treatment that can give you dramatic results in just a few short visits to the dentist, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution. They can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic dental concerns, including cracked or chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, and stained or yellowed teeth. Plus, porcelain veneers are designed to look just like your natural teeth, so nobody will even know you’ve had them placed unless you tell them. So if you’re ready to transform your smile, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you.
Porcelain veneers offer a quick and easy way to achieve a brighter, more uniform smile. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks associated with porcelain veneers. The most common complication is increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This is typically temporary and will go away once your mouth adjusts to the veneers. Another potential complication is chipping or cracking of the veneers. This is more likely to happen if you have a habit of clenching or grinding your teeth. Although porcelain veneers are designed to be durable, they are not indestructible. It is important to consult with your dentist before having porcelain veneers placed to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
While the initial cost of veneers can be pricey, they are typically considered to be a lifetime investment. The average cost of veneers in Australia is about $2,000 per tooth, though this price can vary depending on the number of veneers needed and the type of material used. With proper care, veneers can last for many years, making them a worthwhile investment for those looking to improve their smile.
At Studio Smiles, we use the highest quality porcelain for our veneers to ensure a natural look that will last for years to come. We will work with you to design a smile that is perfect for you. If you are interested in porcelain veneers, please call us today for more information. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and get you started on the path to a beautiful new smile.
We strive to establish rapport and trust to help you feel completely confident on your smile transformation journey.

Dr. Sabrina Escuza
Dr. Sabrina Escuza takes great pride in providing a calm environment where patients feel safe to express their needs, and comfortable to ask questions. Empowering you to take control of your oral health journey is her number one priority. She will thoroughly explain your conditions, how they came to be, and what treatment options are available to meet your health or aesthetic goals. Each patient is unique, and she will strategically tie all the aspects of dentistry into an individual journey that will work best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s a check up, or a complete change that you’re seeking – she will look after you.
Florida, USA is where home is for Dr. Sabrina. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne, where she graduated with honours and an achievement award from the prestigious Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity. Eight years of uni has made her addicted to education – she is fluent in Spanish, has studied philosophy and French, and now spends her free time learning about the most modern dental treatment modalities through continued professional development courses.
Dr. Sabrina finds great joy in the intersections of dentistry – healthcare and artistry, function/aesthetics and mental health, communication and comfort. She is meticulous with the design of a smile, considering everything from the physics of your bite to the color of the porcelain. One of her favorite areas is where surgery meets prosthetics – sometimes losing a very broken down tooth means creating a healthy space for a beautiful replacement that will get you eating without pain and smiling without shame.
Apart from dentistry, Sabrina (not so) secretly thinks she is a master chef, and can be found trying to feed her friends the excessive amount of food she cooks. She loves music, a good picnic in the sun, and her dog, Nile.
