Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental veneers permanent?

Veneers are considered permanent because the dentist will need to alter the natural shape of your teeth during the dental treatment. The outer layer of enamel on your teeth may have to be removed to make room for the dental veneers, with a slight abrasion needed for the veneers to stick.

Are dental veneers worth it?

Veneers can last up to 20 years when cared for properly, and the benefits and enhancements that they bring to your natural-looking smile can be well worth it. Made with the highest quality materials and designed by a master ceramist, your dental veneers will bring new life to your existing teeth and a long-lasting beautiful smile.

Are dental veneers painful?

Generally, receiving your veneers shouldn’t cause any pain. If you have very sensitive teeth, you may experience discomfort during the procedure. The treatment process involves some shaping of the teeth, and most cosmetic dentists will numb the area completely before attaching the dental veneers to your natural tooth. Patients with 8 or more final porcelain veneers may experience mild pain or discomfort in the mouth following the procedure.

Are dental veneers covered by insurance?

Both porcelain veneers and composite veneers are covered by private health insurance under the major dental portion of your extras cover. Our practice accept HICAPS for all veneers.

Should I get veneers or braces?

Veneers and braces have two different purposes, and can’t generally be used to achieve the same smile Depending on what you’re trying to achieve with your smile design, veneers may be a more immediate option instead of braces, if you are only looking to straighten your teeth for aesthetics and not medical reasons. Braces are necessary for severe issues such as an obvious overbite or underbite, crossbites, or excessive crowding, where veneers will fix teeth that are chipped, discoloured, gapped, crooked or stained. If your teeth are crooked but the colour and shape are in good condition, veneers may not be the best choice over braces. Likewise, if your main concerns with your teeth are the way they look, their staining or positioning, veneers will save you from the time consuming, uncomfortable and costly process of getting braces.

What veneers are made of?

A porcelain veneer is made from a thin but very strong moulding of porcelain shaped to fit over the surface of your tooth. They are made in a dental lab and are bonded to your teeth with resin cement. Composite veneers are made from an acrylic resin that bonded to the teeth. Composite veneers can be more affordable than porcelain but generally have a lesser life span. Porcelain veneers have a more natural look and reflect the light in the same way as natural teeth, making them a more popular choice. Composite veneers provide a stable filling and are typically used for smaller restorations and repairs.

When are veneers medically necessary?

Unlike dental crowns, veneers aren’t often medically necessary. A dental crown is often used when the dentist considers the teeth to be in danger, and veneers are used to achieve teeth whitening or a new smile by filling gaps or chips in the teeth. Both composite veneer and porcelain veneers require a healthy tooth to withstand the dental implant and are only used by cosmetic dentists to bring an affordable and lasting solution for a new smile.

What are temporary veneers?

Temporary veneers are made to achieve the same look as a porcelain veneer treatment and to achieve a clean and straight smile, without the permanency of full veneer treatment. Temporary veneers are useful for when you’re in preparation for your veneer treatment, as the process before receiving your new smile can make the teeth appear an odd shape. Temporary veneers are made from an acrylic like material and are only meant to be worn for the time it takes for the permanent veneers to be made.

What sort of veneer payment plans do you have?

Our dental practices within North Sydney CBD are tailored towards affordability and quality, and we offer a range of payment options to suit both planned and unplanned dental treatment. We support all major health plans with HICAPS available, as well as Denticare Payment Solutions. One phone call to our friendly staff during opening hours, and we can work with you to offer access to some of the best cosmetic dentistry and veneer treatments in Sydney.

Can dental veneers fall off?

Although it is rare, veneers can fall off. There are several lifestyle factors, along with the health of your real teeth that may cause the veneers to fall off. Your dentist will determine a treatment plan during your initial visit, based on whether you have healthy or worn teeth. Lifestyle factors such as encountering a strong facial impact, chewing pencils or nails, chewing gum or sticky foods, grinding the teeth or experiencing tooth decay, can rarely contribute to the veneers falling off.

Can dental veneers be removed or replaced?

Generally speaking, porcelain veneers can last at least 10 years with no issue. If your veneers become chipped or broken, they can be replaced. Proper oral hygiene and care will keep your veneers in perfect condition and your smile looking as natural as ever. If you notice a chip or fracture in your dental veneers, it’s important to get it checked and replace as soon as possible to protect your teeth.

Can dental veneers fix gum recession?

Gum recession occurs when the position of the gum is lowered, exposing the root of the tooth. Gum recession is generally caused by an underlying issue, and it’s important to treat these issues. Veneers may not adhere to the tooth properly if the gums aren’t healthy. Alternatively, discuss gum veneers as part of your gum recession treatment plan with our cosmetic dentist. If you’re experiencing gum recession, it’s best to address the issue with your dentist before considering veneers.

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

When applied by a qualified and experienced cosmetic dentist, veneers won’t ruin or damage your teeth. Your dentist will ensure the area underneath the tooth surface is healthy enough to hold the dental veneer and apply them correctly to avoid damage. Dental porcelain veneers, in particular, require a healthy tooth to adhere to and can maintain the quality and health of the tooth for the duration of the lifespan of the veneers. Proper care is required to keep the veneer healthy and in good repair, and your dentist will ensure that you are well equipped to take care of your new smile.

Do porcelain dental veneers straighten your teeth?

A veneer treatment will improve the look and quality of your smile, but it won’t straighten your teeth. Composite and porcelain dental veneers can close gaps and make the teeth appear straighter. Additionally, veneers can make the shape and size of teeth suit the rest of the mouth and make the smile appear perfectly aligned.

Do dental veneers stay white or get yellow?

Porcelain veneers and composite veneers are made to be stain-resistant and to bring consistent teeth whitening, with tooth coloured material that is not impacted by liquids or foods. Porcelain veneers in particular won’t stain, except for within the margins. It’s important to maintain oral care with the right toothbrush and toothpaste. If the margins of the veneers become stained, your cosmetic dentist can make them look new.

Do dental veneers last forever?

Porcelain dental veneers can last over 10 years, but not forever. Your cosmetic dental treatments should include checkups and cleans, and your dentist can discuss what it will take to keep your perfect smile. Porcelain veneers are made with state of the art materials to keep your smile design straight and your tooth colour pearly white for as long as possible.

How much do porcelain veneers cost in Sydney?

The cost for porcelain veneers in Sydney depends on many factors. The cost can change based on whether you have old veneers needing removal, the number of veneers needed or the severity of the damage. During your initial consultation, a quote will form based on your digital smile design and inspiration from photo, real-life, transformations. Composite veneers can cost less than half of the price of porcelain veneers. Some customers require fully customised veneers, in which case the cost will increase, along with extras such as scale, cleans, consultation fees and lower teeth whitening.

How veneers are fitted or installed?

Veneers consist of a wafer-thin layer of porcelain or resin-based ceramic that is fit over the tooth. You won’t be fitted with your new porcelain veneers in your first appointment, or even your second appointment, and your treatment plan will work towards your ideal final result with x-rays, fittings and digital smile design. The process towards getting veneers generally includes three appointments, the first one for a consultation and the second and third to make and fit the veneers. You will likely be offered temporary veneers to wear in between appointments for when your permanent veneers are being manufactured in the dental lab. Your dentist will reshape the tooth and remove roughly the thickness of the veneer, to enable a perfect fit and to limit bulkiness.
