Dental veneers are a popular treatment at our West End dental clinic and are a great way to enhance the appearance of your smile. Here are 6 quick facts about dental veneers. 

Veneers are a great option to improve the appearance of your smile

Dental veneers are a great solution if you want to hide severely stained teeth or teeth that are worn, chipped or cracked. Veneers can also help change the shape of your teeth and minimise gaps. If you only have a couple of teeth a little out of alignment, veneers can be an effective way to bring them back into line and improve the appearance of your smile without orthodontics. 

Dental veneers are bonded to your teeth

Dental veneers are a thin covering or shell over the front of your tooth made from porcelain or composite resin. They are bonded to your teeth and are designed to look and feel natural. Dental veneers are custom designed for each individual, matching the colour and shape of your existing teeth. 

It’s generally a painless procedure

Dental treatment has come a long way in the past decade and thanks to advances in technology and equipment, getting dental veneers is normally a painless procedure. If you have sensitive teeth you may feel a little discomfort, but you shouldn’t feel any serious pain. Some dentists will numb the area at the beginning of the procedure. 

Veneers will last about seven to fifteen years

With proper care dental veneers will last between seven and fifteen years. To care for your veneers and extend their lifespan you should: 

  • Schedule regular dental checkups.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss regularly. 
  • Try not to chew extremely hard foods. 
  • Avoid teeth grinding.
  • Avoid foods that stain and smoking cigarettes. 

You can pay off your dental veneers 

At The Practice West End, we understand you may not have the money upfront to pay for your dental veneers. That’s why we offer flexible payment options such as ZipMoney and Afterpay, allowing you to pay off your dental veneers over time.
