Dental veneers are thin facings made of composite or porcelain material which cover the visible surfaces of front teeth to significantly improve the appearance of teeth and in turn, the overall aesthetics of your smile.

Dental veneers may be used to change the colour, shape, size, length and position of teeth. They are a more conservative restorative treatment option for improving smile aesthetics than full coverage reconstructions such as dental crowns. Dental veneers may be recommended to correct discoloured teeth, worn teeth, chipped or broken teeth, slightly misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth, and to close gaps between teeth.

Veneers may be constructed from composite resin (dental bonding) or made from the latest high strength dental porcelains. If you are a candidate for dental veneers, the most suitable material for your veneers may be determined following a professional consultation and smile analysis at our practice.

We take into consideration:

  • the nature of your dental problem,
  • the quality and amount of suitable natural tooth structure present,
  • your bite,
  • what may be achieved,
  • whether prior teeth whitening may improve your overall result,
  • the treatment prognosis,
  • your aesthetic goals, expectations and budget.

At Melbourne Dentistry, we look forward to assisting you with the best options in dental veneer treatments to meet your aesthetic needs.
