• Why Choose Veneers

    Dental veneers have been reliably used for the better part of a century to help cosmetically improve and restore the appearance of flawed teeth. These wafer-thin shells of porcelain sit like tiny caps over the front surface of teeth to provide a whiter, straighter and overall, aesthetically pleasing smile. 

    They can be custom-made to your desired tooth shape, size and colour to provide a more balance and natural overall appearance.

    Why Choose Veneers
  • Veneers Treatment

    Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that require little preparation and can be placed in one or two visits with our dentist. Treatment can be done using either porcelain or composite resin material, both have pros and cons worth considering.

    Treatment begins with the dentist reviewing your medical history and examining your teeth and bite to confirm your suitability:

    • A thin layer of enamel is removed to prepare teeth
    • A dental impression is taken
    • Your new tooth colour is chosen
    • Temporary veneers are placed while your final veneers are designed in the lab
    • Your teeth are cleaned before a special bonding agent is applied
    • Veneers are placed into position and polished
    • Post-care and cleaning instructions are provided along with a scheduled follow-up appointment

  • Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain is the material of choice when it comes to creating a smile that many celebrities enjoy, its most appealing advantage is the ability to mimic the way natural teeth reflect light. Pros and cons for porcelain veneers include:

    • Porcelain has a translucent quality that reflects light just like natural teeth
    • Porcelain requires very little preparation, so your enamel can be preserved
    • Porcelain bonds really well to enamel
    • Porcelain can last a long time and are stain resistant
    • Once damaged or chipped they have to be removed completely
    • Costs more than composite resin
    Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers
  • Pros and Cons of Composite Resin Veneers

    Composite is widely used for dental veneers and simple tooth bonding treatments. Perhaps the largest advantage of composite resin over porcelain is the cost. Pros and cons for composite resin veneers include:

    • Composite resin costs less than porcelain
    • Treatment is generally quicker
    • Can be easily repaired or altered without being removed
    • Don’t reflect light like porcelain does, appearing less natural
    • Composite can be prone to staining
    • Composite can be less durable than porcelain
    Pros and Cons of Composite Resin Veneers
  • Caring for Veneers

    You can help your veneers last longer by avoiding certain foods that can chip, stain or damage teeth and adopting some good habits to prolong the life of your new veneers:

    • Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush around veneers
    • Ask your dentist about a mouthguard to protect teeth at night
    • Avoid beverages that stain (coffee, tea, red wine) or brush teeth and rinse afterward
    • Avoid acidic foods (lemons, tomatoes) or brush teeth and rinse afterward
    • Avoid alcohol as it can weaken the bonding agent
    • Avoid using front teeth to chew hard foods (raw carrots, nuts)
    • Avoid crunching on ice cubes
    • Avoid smoking

Frequently asked questions

Porcelain veneers are thin coverings for teeth made from porcelain ceramic. Veneers may be chosen to cover teeth that are stained or discoloured, chipped, misshaped, misaligned, too short or have gaps. The porcelain may be matched to your natural tooth colour or you can choose a whiter shade.

Porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years if they are well maintained whereas composite veneers can last 4-8 years after which they may need to be repaired or replaced due to staining and chipping.

Porcelain veneers are made outside the mouth and bonded to the teeth, whereas composite resin veneers are applied directly to teeth. Porcelain veneers cost more than composite veneers, but they can also last longer, are more resistant to damage and stains and look more like natural tooth enamel.

Porcelain veneers in Perth at EVP Dental cost between $800 to $1400 per tooth, though the cost of your treatment will depend on the type of veneers and how many you need. As a cosmetic dental treatment, the cost of veneers is not covered by Medicare or insurance, but we provide payment plans to help you manage the cost.

Veneer treatment requires you to have healthy teeth and gums. You may not be suitable for veneers if you have gum disease, persistently grind your teeth, suffer from gum disease or don’t have enough tooth enamel. Speak to one of our dentists to discuss your suitability for dental veneers or other treatment options such as teeth whitening or teeth straightening to cosmetically enhance your smile.
