A wonderful cosmetic option to restore and beautify your smile, dental veneers are restorations added to the front of your tooth to cover a variety of cosmetic concerns such as discolouration, chips, cracks and poor alignment. Choose between porcelain veneers, similar to 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 lustre and sheen. We find that many patients who have initially chosen composite veneers elect to have porcelain veneers when the time comes for renewal.

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.
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.
