What are dental veneers?


Veneers (also known as laminate) are a thin, translucent layer of a carefully chosen material that is customised to cover the imperfections of your teeth. The material is shaped to bond to the front of your teeth, and as a result, enhances the shape, size and colour of teeth, to close gaps and improve alignment. 

 

At ArtSmiles, they are designed to do this and much more. Dr Cristian Dunker has taken the art of Dental Veneers to a much higher level. Our custom Dental Veneers will match or replace your natural teeth, and Dr Cristian will make sure that the Dental Veneers you get will give you the exact smile transformation that you’ve always wanted.

  • Teeth with gaps 
 


Composite Resin VS Porcelain Veneers

What is the difference?

There are as many differences as similarities between resin composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Determining which type of veneer is right for you comes down to multiple different factors.                                         

Both types basically serve the same purpose and involve placing tooth-coloured material over the front surface of the tooth to improve its shape.

Both are used to deal with dull, discoloured, chipped, cracked, short or uneven teeth. If any one or more of these are affecting you, your smile or your confidence, veneers are obviously the best and most common solution.

The differences are due to the quality, procedure, durability and cost of the two different materials.

Quality

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain adhered to the outer-surface of the tooth. Composite veneers are engineered resin affixed to the outer-surface. Both are made to match your teeth (or whiten) and improve your overall smile.

Porcelain veneers are much stronger and more durable than composite resin veneers. They’re extremely thin (0.6mm), so they feel like real teeth in your month. The smooth, impervious ceramic used in porcelain veneers also resists staining from cigarettes or coffee. 

With dental porcelain veneers, your teeth reconstruction is so close to natural in terms of their shape, colour, and texture, that only your dentist can tell the difference between them and your natural teeth.

Procedure

The quicker of the two dental veneers to be applied to the teeth are composite veneers. This is because they can be done chairside in the same visit. Dr. Cristian Dunker will match the resin to the colour, size, and shape of your desired new smile. The resin is added to your teeth, cured and then polished. You can walk out the same day with a new smile!

Porcelain veneers typically take at least two visits. Dr. Cristian will remove a very thin layer of your teeth, take an impression of the teeth receiving the veneers and send the mould out to a lab to be hand crafted. While you are waiting on your veneers to be fabricated you can wear temporary veneers. A second visit will fit them to check for colour match and shape, and if you’re happy, they will be bonded to complete the process.

Durability

With proper care, porcelain veneers should last 10-15 years. Composite veneers, on the other hand, typically last 5-8 years. While porcelain is fragile, once bonded to a healthy tooth it is extremely durable. Composite is durable but not as strong as porcelain and is more prone to chipping. However, if damage were to happen to a porcelain veneer, it would have to be replaced, it cannot be repaired. If you chip a composite veneer, you can repair it.

Cost

Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite initially. The placement of porcelain takes more time, expertise and resources. The dental lab’s dentists work with are chosen very carefully and cost money to fabricate restorations. If you break down costs by how often you would have to replace/repair composite verse porcelain though, the cost could come out even over time.

Choosing between composite and porcelain veneers

At the end of the day, the only way to determine whether a composite or porcelain veneer solution is right for you is to come for a free consultation and discuss about your aesthetic goals and to weigh your personal considerations. In other words, what is most important to you? If you’re looking for the most cost-effective solution, then a composite veneers treatment plan will probably be a good fit. However, if you have a severe aesthetic concern, or you’re looking for the most natural and durable treatment solution, then porcelain veneers will give you a fantastic result.

Regardless of which material you opt for in the end, you can rest assured that both offer fantastic smile enhancement.

Frequently asked questions

Dental veneers are very thin covers that are put on top of your natural teeth to change the shape, size and color of the teeth. The material is shaped to bond to the front of your teeth, and as a result, enhances the shape and colour of teeth, to close gaps and improve alignment. Veneers can also be used to lengthen worn or short teeth. The overall purpose for veneers is to improve the appearance of a person’s smile to make them appear younger, healthier and more attractive. 

With the latest technology in dentistry, veneers can be made to look exactly like natural tooth enamel and are often used to create custom smiles. 

The most common materials used for making veneers are composite and porcelain (also called ceramic veneers).  

Porcelain is the most popular material at ArtSmiles. It gives a natural long-lasting look, which matches your natural teeth colour. It is highly resistant to staining and discolouring, which makes it better than other materials. 

Dental veneers can be used to fix the following problems: 

  • Discoloured and stained teeth 
  • Worn-down teeth 
  • Chipped or broken teeth 
  • Misaligned, irregular shaped or uneven teeth 
  • Teeth with gaps                                            

 

Far too often, people will try to avoid seeking professional dental treatment and live with damaged or crooked teeth. By avoiding treatment, people are only increasing the chance of pain or infection. A chipped tooth can risk exposing the inside of the tooth, causing pain when eating, drinking or biting down on something. 

By investing in a dental veneer treatment, our clinical team can help you change the size, shape and shade of your teeth for your specific needs. 

At ArtSmiles, our experts perform an initial detailed consultation and examination to discuss your objectives and determine if the dental veneers treatment is suitable for you. After that, our practitioner scans your mouth, and dental veneers are created to match the colour, size, and shape of your desired new smile. 

Our dentist may suggest a dental veneer if you have any of the following issues with your teeth: 

  • Severely stained and discoloured teeth 
  • Minor aesthetic imperfections in your teeth structure such as cracks, chipped, or deformed teeth 
  • Several aesthetic issues in your teeth 
  • Overall good oral health 
  • Sufficient amount of tooth enamel 
  • Mildly crooked or misaligned teeth 
  • You do not habitually clench or grind your teeth 
  • You practice good oral hygiene 

 

ArtSmiles has a variety of financing options available to suit every patient’s needs, so money should not be a barrier to an improved dental health and appearance. 

No, you can care for your veneer as you care for your teeth, with routine brushing and flossing and regular trips to the dentist to check for any issues with fit or construction. 

Veneers are a popular dental treatment. They are strong, look natural and can last for a long time with correct care. Porcelain veneers don’t change colour over time and they are durable and scratch resistant. They dramatically improve a person’s smile by correcting the appearance of the teeth, transforming your smile into aesthetically pleasing natural look. They don’t affect the function of your mouth, there is no need for a surgery and the recovery is quick.  

In Australia, a Composite Veneer varies from $210 and $600, and the cost of each Ceramic Veneer varies from $660 to $1,825.

The cost of getting veneers can vary depending on the number of veneers, scale of treatment required as well as the type of veneers that you get. Our experts will recommend a treatment option best suited to you and give you an estimate of the price and payment options during your free consultation visit. 

We offer a number of dental financing options that enable you to pay over time. This way, you can start enjoying your veneers as soon as they are placed. We accept a wide range of payment methods and have plenty of flexible pay later financial options including Afterpay, TLC, Humm and Access My Super. 

What are the Advantages of composite veneers ?

  • Composite veneers can be accomplished in a single visit. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory and therefore require at least two visits.
  •  While this is not a general rule, composite veneers need less tooth preparation.
  •  Composite veneers are more affordable; the cost is usually about half that of porcelain veneers.

What are the Disadvantages of composite veneers ?

  • Composite veneers are not as durable as porcelain veneers and more maintenance is required as they are more likely to chip.
  • Composite veneers tend to stain more easily (you might consider this especially if you smoke or drink coffee or red wine). Here is the reason: composite is a porous resin while porcelain is glazed and impervious.

What are the Advantages of porcelain veneers ?

  • Porcelain has a translucent, light-reflective quality similar to tooth enamel; as a result, it can mimic natural teeth in a way which is not possible to achieve with any other dental material.
  • Porcelain is colour stable because there is a glaze placed on the outside which makes it extremely resistant to staining.
  • Porcelain veneers are very durable and they rarely chip.

What are the Disadvantages of porcelain veneers ?

  • Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory and therefore require at least two visits.
  • Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite veneers as their placement requires more time, expertise and resources.
  • Porcelain veneers cannot be repaired. If they break, porcelain veneers must be replaced.
They’re permanent, but they’re not forever. Bonding cement is a substance that microscopically creates bridges from your real tooth to the veneer material so that it adheres to your tooth and becomes one. After the bonding cement is in place and the veneer is on your tooth, the bonding cement is cured with a tiny UV light to secure everything in place.
 
Porcelain veneers typically last between 10 and 15 years, and Composite veneers last around 5 to 7 years. Taking certain precautions can help make sure that you get the longest lifespan out of them possible. 

 

Follow these six simple tips to make your veneers last:

  • Schedule semi-annual checkups and cleanings with your dentist.
  • Don’t chew on hard objects like pens, ice, or your finger nails.
  • Never use your teeth to open packaging or condiment packages.
  • Try not to chew with your front teeth. Eat harder foods with your back teeth only; cut up hard foods like chocolate bars so that this is possible.
  • If you grind or clench your teeth at night, get a splint or retainer to protect your veneers.
  • If playing sports, you must wear a mouth guard.
 
 

Composite veneers can wear under pressure, so if you are prone to grinding your teeth, you might want to protect them while you sleep. As they are also not as stain resistant as natural teeth or porcelain, avoiding drinks or food that can exacerbate staining as well as regular polishing is advised.
Porcelain veneers are much closer to natural teeth in substance, and are always ‘measured and fitted’ in such a way that will be moulded to fit your mouth, so are much less susceptible to the above concerns. Take care of them as you would your natural teeth and they’ll be with you for long years!

Veneers can be applied to crooked or misaligned teeth to improve alignment or reduce protrusion. Using veneers to correct this is becoming more popular, as it takes only a matter of days from the start of the procedure to the end.

Dr. Cristian Dunker will make every effort to ensure your teeth look as natural as possible. In most cases, it would take a keen eye to identify veneers of any composition.
