Veneers

At Sunnybank Plaza Dental, we can help transform and restore your smile with dental veneers.

Patients generally take advantage of our dental veneers treatment when their smile is causing them dissatisfaction. We believe it is fair for everyone to have the opportunity to have a smile they are proud of. Dental veneers are used to modify the size, shape and colour of your tooth. They can eliminate any imperfections that bother you with a natural looking tooth. If you have discoloured, chipped or even cracked teeth, the team at Sunnybank Plaza can help.

At Sunnybank Plaza Dental we recommend a veneers treatment for patients whose teeth are;

  • Chipped
  • Gapped
  • Stains and discoloured
  • Misaligned
  • Broken
  • Crooked

Composite or porcelain veneers?

Composite and porcelain veneers can be used to enhance your natural smile. Composite and porcelain veneers both require a tooth-colour mould being placed over the existing teeth. Porcelain veneers last longer due to what they are made of. Although they do cost more than composite veneers, porcelain veneers produce a far more superior looking result compared with veneers made of composite resin.

How are veneers applied?

Restoring your smile with dental veneers may require a few appointments especially for porcelain veneers. This is to ensure that the end results are accurate, customised and what you were after. An initial consultation may be required to assess your teeth.

For porcelain veneers the dentist will prepare your teeth to the ideal shape for your new veneers. An impression of the prepared teeth is then taken for fabrication of the veneers and temporary veneers are placed on your teeth until the permanent veneers are ready. The placement of the permanent veneers, or your new smile, will be the final stage!

Composite veneers can usually be placed directly in one appointment.

How much do veneers cost?

Depending on each individual circumstance the cost of your dental veneers can vary. During your initial consultation at Sunnybank Plaza Dental we will assess your teeth and identify what your customised treatment will be.

During this consultation, you will be able to discuss the cost and payment options with your dentist.

How do I look after my veneers?

At Sunnybank Plaza Dental we recommend avoiding smoking and minimising coffee and tea intaketo reduce the risk of staining to your veneers. Avoiding hard foods and chewing ice will reduce the risk of chipping and veneer fratures. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing every day and visiting your dentist every 6 months for check-ups and cleans will also help to maximise the longevity of your veneers.
