Stained, misaligned, or discoloured teeth can significantly diminish your confidence, leading you to conceal your smile or refrain from smiling entirely. However, there’s a solution at hand. At Bondi Family Dentist, our skilled professionals specialise in fitting high-quality dental veneers, and restoring your teeth to a straight, radiant smile. With our expertise, you can regain your confidence and never hesitate to show off your smile again.

What Are Dental Veneers


Dental veneers, often referred to as porcelain veneers, are slim, tailor-made coverings crafted to fit over the front surface of your teeth. These veneers can remarkably alter the shape, size, length, or colour of your teeth, significantly enhancing your smile’s appearance.

Who Needs Dental Veneers?


Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for individuals looking to improve their smile by addressing various aesthetic concerns. Veneers are particularly beneficial for those with teeth that are discoloured, chipped, broken, worn down, uneven, misaligned, or irregularly shaped. They offer a way to conceal these imperfections, including gaps (diastema), stains resistant to whitening treatments, undersized teeth, and misshapen teeth, thus enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers and Composite Veneers?


While other options like teeth whitening could help you achieve the bright, white smile you desire, porcelain and composite veneers offer many advantages that others do not.


  • Aesthetic Enhancement: Veneers can significantly improve the appearance of your smile, making them a popular choice for cosmetic dental improvements.
  • Natural Appearance: They are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing lifelike results that enhance your overall smile.
  • Stain Resistance: Compared to natural tooth enamel, veneers are more resistant to staining, helping maintain a brighter smile for longer.
  • Low Maintenance: Dental veneers do not require any special care beyond good oral hygiene practices, making them a convenient option.
  • Durability: With proper care, veneers can last between 10 to 15 years, making them a long-term solution for cosmetic dental issues.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Though getting veneers will take multiple trips to our dental office, the results of the procedure promise to leave you with a beautiful smile and increased confidence. The following are the steps involved in the process.


During your initial appointment with one of our qualified cosmetic dentists, you will undergo an examination to determine if veneers are right for you. The dentist will take x-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth and mouth.


The cosmetic dentist will reshape the tooth’s surface by trimming a small amount of enamel. Next, they will make an impression or model of the tooth, which they will send to the laboratory to make the veneer. While the laboratory makes the veneer, the dentist will fit you with temporary veneers as you wait.

Bonding or Cementing

It usually takes approximately two weeks for your veneers to be ready. Once they are complete, you will come in for the bonding.

The dentist will ensure that the veneer’s colour matches that of the rest of your teeth. Before permanently cementing the veneer to the tooth, they will clean and polish it. They will also etch it to roughen the tooth and enable a strong bond.

After applying a dental bond, the dentist will place the veneer on your tooth, perfectly positioning it. They will then shine a special beam of light to activate the chemicals in the bond, curing it and causing it to harden. Once the veneer is firmly in place, the dentist will remove any excess cement, check your bite, and make necessary adjustments before completing the procedure.

Composite Veneers Procedure

 The procedure for composite veneers, which bear a strong resemblance to their porcelain counterparts, presents several distinct advantages: often, they can be applied without the need to remove tooth structure, making them a less invasive option. Typically, the application process is completed in a single appointment, offering a more convenient and time-efficient solution for patients. Moreover, composite veneers tend to be more cost-effective than porcelain veneers. However, it’s important to note that they usually do not offer the same level of durability as porcelain veneers, potentially influencing their longevity and performance over time.

Denture Frequently Asked Questions

Dental veneers vs crowns?

Veneers and crowns serve different purposes in dental care, primarily distinguished by their coverage and functionality. A porcelain veneer is designed to cover only the front surface of a tooth, aiming to enhance its aesthetic appeal without altering the tooth’s structural integrity. This makes veneers an ideal cosmetic solution for improving the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, slightly misaligned, or have minor imperfections.

On the other hand, a dental crown encompasses the entire tooth, offering both strength and protection. This comprehensive coverage is crucial for teeth significantly weakened by decay, trauma, or extensive dental work. Crowns improve the appearance of damaged teeth and restore their function and durability.

Are there different types of veneers?

Indeed, there are various veneer types, each suited to different dental needs and preferences, including composite and porcelain.

Composite Veneers

These are ideal for rectifying cosmetic flaws. Utilising a tooth-coloured composite resin, the same material employed in dental bonding, your dentist can enhance the appearance of your teeth, offering a straightforward solution for mild aesthetic concerns.

Porcelain Veneers

Renowned for correcting a wide range of aesthetic issues, porcelain veneers are tailor-made to align with your unique dental structure. The process involves a preparatory step where a small amount of enamel is removed from your natural teeth. This procedure roughens the tooth surface for better adhesion and ensures the veneers fit seamlessly and maintain their position effectively.

How can I maintain my Dental veneers?

Maintaining your dental veneers requires a diligent oral hygiene routine and cautious habits. It’s essential to brush at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive fluoride toothpaste, floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash twice a day to minimise bacteria. Also, avoid using your teeth to open packages or tear off tags, as this can damage your veneers. Regular visits to your dentist for exams and professional cleanings are also crucial for maintaining the longevity and appearance of your veneers, helping you to enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for many years.

How do I prepare for my Dental Veneer appointment?

Preparing for your veneers begins with a preliminary consultation with your dentist to determine the most suitable options for you and decide on the number of veneers you wish to have applied. This step is crucial, especially if your teeth are crooked or uneven, as you may require braces to correct these issues before veneers can be placed. During this initial appointment, your dentist will likely conduct X-rays to assess the health of your teeth, looking for any signs of decay, gum disease, or the necessity for root canal treatments. These conditions could affect your eligibility for veneers.
