What are Veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic solution used to help create your dream smile. Dental veneers are made of incredibly thin, natural looking material that is bonded to the surface of the teeth to improve its cosmetic appearance. 

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.

Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers Perth?

Veneers are a cosmetic solution, not a therapeutic one, and are still a serious and permanent dental procedure.
For your veneers procedure to be successful, you must have good oral hygiene and healthy gum tissue. Any existing dental problems such as teeth straightening will need to be completed before we place your dental veneers.
If you are a frequent teeth grinder (bruxism), porcelain veneers may not be suitable for you as you could potentially chip, break or even detach your veneers from your teeth.
It is important to note that veneers are irreversible as the process requires the teeth to be shaved down to about ½ millimetre thick. The list of the positives does outweigh the negatives, but when considering veneers, you should be aware that this is a permanent commitment.


Porcelain Veneers

A life-like smile you wouldn’t want to hide

Porcelain veneers is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves shaving down about ½ millimetre of your tooth and cementing a custom made and custom designed porcelain ‘shell’ to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are strong and offer the highest level of aesthetic treatment to deliver you that Hollywood smile.

 

Composite Veneers

A cost-effective solution to mask cosmetic concerns.

Similar to Porcelain veneers, composite veneers are thin, custom-made acrylic shells designed to be bonded to the surface of your natural teeth. These veneers can successfully mask chipped, discoloured, or cracked teeth. The procedure can be completed in a few appointments with minimal preparation required.

 

Composite veneers are a more affordable option than their porcelain counterparts, and they take less time to create. However, composite veneers don’t last as long compared to porcelain veneers, requiring a more frequent upkeep

 

Cosmetic Bonding 

Quick improvements in a short space of time

Cosmetic bonding is a conservative treatment option whereby aesthetic tooth-coloured materials to replace missing tooth structure or to hide minor tooth defects. The treatment can be used to repair small chips, fix discolouring, 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 process and can be completed in as little as a single visit, depending on your requirements. It is often a great first step in improving your smile for minimum cost.


Veneers Aftercare

Veneers are permanent, but they’re not forever. Veneers could last for about 15 to 20 years, at which point they’ll need to be replaced. Although it happens infrequently, veneers can de-bond or break off. If this was to happen, depending on the situation, your dentist may be able to re-cement or you may have to replace your veneer. 

To keep your veneers looking amazing for the longest possible amount of time, you have to go to the dentist at least twice a year for professional cleanings and be consistent about your oral hygiene by brushing and flossing. Veneers are an investment that you have to take care of. If you don’t, you’ll need to replace them sooner. And yes you can still get cavities!


How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?

Cost of veneers – depending on the level of customisation you choose and type of veneers will determine the cost of your veneers. Each veneer at Aria Dental is handcrafted by our master ceramist and will undergo hours of work, per tooth. You can expect to have several temporary tries in veneer teeth before you receive your final veneers. Veneers are typically quoted on a per tooth basis and composite and porcelain veneers can cost from $1,000 – $3,000 per tooth. The cost becomes cheaper the more veneers you have and depend on your outcome goals. Typically veneer treatments are delivered in sets of 4, 6, or 8.
