What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are restorations made of thin, wafer-like material which is placed over a single tooth or multiple teeth. Veneers are a wonderful cosmetic solution and can often fix multiple problems at once.

Choose between porcelain veneers, like tiny translucent shells, or composite resin veneers, where layers of resin are built up over the tooth.

At Aria Dental, in the Perth CBD, we offer both porcelain veneers and composite resin. Both types of veneers have their benefits; however, porcelain veneers are considered the more superior product, providing impressive longevity and beautiful aesthetic results. Unsurprisingly, they are also more expensive.

Alternatively, composite resin veneers can also provide excellent, natural-looking results. However, over time, they can start to lose their luster and sheen. We find that many patients who have initially chosen composite veneers elect to have porcelain veneers when the time comes for renewal.

Porcelain Veneers

Sheer, lifelike & beautiful to look at…

Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin, wafer-like veneers that are bonded to the surface of the teeth to improve cosmetic appearance. As they are placed over the existing tooth, they offer myriad cosmetic improvements.

Today’s porcelain veneers are extremely strong and durable, and although more expensive than other options are a sound investment, given the years of cosmetic improvement they provide. Other benefits include:

  • Aesthetic improvement: Today’s veneers are incredibly lifelike and even translucent in places. They reflect light similarly to natural teeth and are difficult to detect from your natural teeth.
  • Versatility: Veneers can be used in a variety of ways to solve many problems, as listed above – from whitening and brightening teeth to covering ridges, irregularities and chips.
  • Convenience: Veneers are placed in just a couple of appointments. You’ll have a new set of whiter, brighter, more even-looking teeth within days.
  • An economical option: Although porcelain veneers aren’t inexpensive, if teeth are badly aligned, they can sometimes present as a more economical option compared to conventional braces or Invisalign.

Composite Veneers

A quick & cost-effective solution to mask cosmetic concerns.

Composite veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to be bonded to the surface of your natural teeth. These veneers can successfully mask chipped, discoloured or cracked teeth. They can be bonded in a single appointment with minimal or no preparation required.

Composite veneers do have some benefits over porcelain veneers. They are a more affordable option to their porcelain counterparts, and they take less time to create. However, although they are natural looking and effective, they don’t last as long as porcelain veneers. We tend to view composite veneers as a provisional solution, whereas porcelain veneers are the preferred long-term aesthetic solution.


Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding, or tooth bonding, is a simple and non-invasive procedure that involves using aesthetic tooth-coloured materials to replace missing tooth structure or to hide minor tooth defects.

Cosmetic bonding, or tooth bonding, is a simple and non-invasive procedure that involves using aesthetic tooth-coloured materials to replace missing tooth structure or to hide minor tooth defects.

Cosmetic bonding is a conservative treatment option whereby tooth-coloured resin composite materials are used to replace missing tooth structure or to hide minor defects in a tooth. The treatment can be used to repair small chips, make changes to the shape of your teeth, or fix minor spacing irregularities, fractures, tooth wear and dental decay. Cosmetic bonding is a relatively inexpensive dental procedure and can be completed in as little as a single visit, depending on your individual requirements


Am I a candidate for dental veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic solution, not a therapeutic one. For your veneers procedure to be successful, you must have healthy teeth underneath.
Veneers won’t remedy an existing problem with your teeth, so if you require important dental work such as fillings orthodontic work, you’ll need to have this completed before your veneers are placed.

Veneers are suitable for most people; however, if you grind your teeth (bruxism) your dentist may recommend another solution as you could potentially chip, break or even detach your veneers from your teeth.
