The simple way of explaining veneers is to look at it as replacing the front portion of your tooth with a porcelain filling. It can change the shape, size, colour and to some extent the position of your tooth. Usually done on multiple teeth, it’s a fast treatment option to enhance your smile. However not everyone is an ideal candidate for a veneer and when you get veneers done there is lot of care and maintenance required.
Other types of cosmetic dentistry, which may be alternative options, include:
- white fillings
- tooth whitening
Dental veneers are a highly effective way of restoring the look of your smile through a non-invasive procedure which involves placing very thin veneers over the tops of your teeth.
They are commonly used if you have chipped or cracked teeth or if you have intrinsic staining which won’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. Dental veneers are functional, effective and affordable.
Endeavour Hills Dental Clinic provide dental veneers as a popular cosmetic dentistry option and this treatment is both fast and effective, often used on multiple teeth. Many people find they have long term success when they decide to proceed with dental veneers if they follow the proper care and maintenance procedures.

The process of dental veneers
Dental veneers involve wafer thin pieces of porcelain or composite material being adhesively bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Dental veneers are a quick option to improve the quality of your smile and it generally takes two to three visits to complete the process. Dental veneer treatment involves a thin layer of enamel being removed from your teeth, often with the help of local anaesthetic, so an impression can be taken. Your veneers are then fabricated and fixed to your teeth. Dental veneers can be a more cost-effective alternative to the more expensive options of dental crowns.
Dental veneers can change the size, colour and shape of your teeth and your dentist at Endeavour Hills Dental Clinic will help get the look of your veneers just right so you will be left with a smile you’ll be wanting to show off.
Choosing dental veneers
There are a number of reasons why dental veneers may be appropriate for you, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Intrinsic discolouration on teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps in teeth
Many dentists provide the option of either porcelain veneers or composite veneers. Endeavours Hills Dental Clinic tend to apply far more composite veneers than procelain, due to the less intrusive method of applying composite veneers, and the cost effective advantages of this approach.
The cost of dental veneers
The cost of your dental veneers will depend on a number of factors including the type of material that you’ve chosen for your veneers, the issues that your veneers will be addressing, the number of veneers you require and whether your private health fund offers any cover for this particular treatment.
