Dental Veneers in Bentleigh East
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can completely alter the appearance of your smile. They are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. Veneers are an effective solution for people who have stained, chipped, misaligned, or discoloured teeth. They can also be used to correct gaps between teeth, to make them appear straighter, and to change their shape or size.

What Are The Benefits?
One of the main benefits of dental veneers is that they can be customised to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth. This means that the final result will look natural and seamless. In addition, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, which means that they will maintain their colour over time.
How Do I Know If Porcelain Veneers Will Work For Me?
One of the most common questions we get asked at Verve Dental is whether porcelain veneers are the right solution for your specific needs. To determine this, we conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth, create models of your teeth and gums, and take extensive photos of your smile.
After the examination is completed, we will decide with you if porcelain veneers are the best option to help you achieve your desired results. It’s important to note that sometimes people assume that because their front teeth look bad, just fixing those alone will solve everything. In reality, the appearance of the front teeth is often the result of what is happening all over the mouth, including the breakdown of back teeth or unchecked gum disease.
The “Try Before You Buy” Smile
Once we start optimising your smile, we spend time recreating your design on models to show you what is possible. In addition, we generate a digital simulation with before and after pictures for you to look at. This is all before we even start working on your teeth. Once you approve of the “prototype,” we then prepare your teeth and place a trial smile directly on them to ensure they suit you.
Sometimes, the trial smile can be placed before your teeth are prepared to speed up the process of giving you an idea of how things will change.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers varies depending on the number of teeth being treated and the complexity of the case. However, the average cost of a single veneer is around $1,800.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
On average, dental veneers last 10-15 years. However, with proper care and maintenance, they can last as long as 20 years or more. To help prolong the life of your veneers, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene, avoid biting on hard objects and avoid excessive grinding or clenching of your teeth. Regular dental check-ups and professional teeth cleaning are also essential to ensure that your veneers are in good condition and to detect any potential issues early.
Whilst porcelain veneers are generally stain resistant, it’s important to be mindful of the types of foods and drinks you consume. Frequent consumption of certain substances, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can stain or discolour your veneers over time. In addition, regular examinations of your veneers are necessary as decay, chips, and loosening can occur and often go unnoticed.
