What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are designed to cover imperfections, such as discolouration, gaps, chips, or misalignment, and provide a natural and aesthetically pleasing look. Veneers are a popular choice for those seeking a permanent solution to enhance their smile.

Depending on your needs, preferences, and the condition of your teeth, you can choose one of the following types of veneers with the help of our professional team at National Dental Care, Inverell.

The types of veneers

Composite veneers: Composite veneers are the most common type and are popular for their lower cost and fast application. They are custom-made out of composite material that is added to the front of your tooth by an experienced cosmetic dentist.

Composite veneers are used to mask discolouration, brighten teeth, and improve the look of your smile. These veneers are usually used for minor cosmetic issues, such as cracking and chipping, but they can also cover small gaps between teeth.

Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers offer a relatively quick way to enhance the natural look of your smile.

As the name suggests, porcelain veneers are porcelain tooth-shaped shells bonded to the surface of the tooth. The porcelain material is strong and durable making it an ideal option for long-lasting results if properly cared for.

Porcelain veneers offer a superior solution for addressing significant cosmetic concerns and teeth misalignment. Their ability to replicate the natural enamel with a light-reflective and translucent appearance makes them an ideal choice.

Who can benefit from veneers?

Veneers present a viable solution for people with discoloured teeth (despite whitening efforts), as well as those with worn, misaligned, or uneven teeth. Additionally, individuals with minor chips, cracks, or slight gaps between their teeth can find significant benefits from veneers.

The versatility of veneers makes them a valuable option for addressing various cosmetic dental concerns, providing an opportunity for people to enhance the appearance of their smiles.

Composite vs. porcelain veneers

Which is better: composite or porcelain veneers? Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite veneers, so they'll work better if you're looking to improve the appearance of several teeth.

While porcelain teeth will still need to be replaced, they last a lot longer than composite veneers. They also don't stain as much.

Here's a breakdown of the advantages of each type of dental veneer:

Porcelain veneers

  • Strength: Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite veneers, making them a suitable choice for addressing multiple teeth and more extensive cosmetic concerns.
  • Durability: Porcelain veneers are more durable compared to composite veneers, offering a long-lasting solution.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain veneers are less prone to staining and discolouration than composite veneers, maintaining their appearance over time.
  • Natural Appearance: Porcelain closely mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, resulting in a highly natural and aesthetic look.

Composite veneers

  • Affordability: Composite veneers are often more budget-friendly, making them a better choice for those wanting to transform their smile without breaking the bank.
  • Conservative Approach: The application of composite veneers doesn’t require the removal of natural tooth structure, which can be appealing if you're concerned about preserving your tooth enamel.
  • Reparability: If a composite veneer becomes damaged, it can be more easily repaired compared to porcelain, which may require replacement.
  • Immediate Results: Composite veneers can often be placed in a single visit, providing instant improvements.

Ultimately, the decision between porcelain and composite veneers should be made with your dentist at Inverell. They will consider your individual circumstances, oral health, desired outcome, and budget to help you determine which option aligns best with your goals.

Frequently asked questions

While the majority of people with minor tooth damage, discolouration, and misalignment issues can benefit from getting veneers, there are cases when veneers might not be suitable for you:

  • Limited tooth substrate (not enough enamel for bonding or poor-quality enamel).
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching can lead to veneers chipping, breaking, and detaching from the tooth).
  • Previous large restorations (if the tooth has already been restored several times, a crown may be a better solution than a veneer).
  • Poor oral hygiene (this can lead to serious problems resulting in the veneers being useless).
  • Severe gum disease (all gum issues must be treated before considering veneers).

During your consultation, your Inverell dentist will discuss all the options. It's important to have excellent periodontal and general oral health for veneers to be effective and last long.

Veneers and crowns are both effective dental treatments, but they serve different purposes. Veneers are primarily used for cosmetic enhancements, while dental crowns are typically recommended for more extensive tooth restoration.

During your consultation, our dental experts will assess your dental condition and discuss the best treatment option for your specific needs.

The porcelain veneer process takes around 2-3 appointments, each taking 1-2 hours. Alternatively, composite veneers usually can be completed in a single appointment.

The veneer process is not usually painful. For added comfort, your dentist will numb the treatment area before the procedure.

Once your veneers are placed and properly bonded, you can enjoy your favourite foods without any restrictions. While veneers themselves cannot develop cavities, it's crucial to maintain good oral hygiene practices to protect the underlying teeth from decay.

Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and attending regular dental check-ups are essential for preserving the health of your teeth and gums, even with veneers.
