With social media being so prevalent today, the perfect bright white smile has never been more desirable until now. Long gone were the days where they were only attainable by celebrities, veneers as well as other cosmetic dental procedures are very much available and possible for everyone now!
Veneers are thin pieces of tooth coloured material that are placed over the natural tooth, giving it a new appearance by masking the natural tooth underneath. This then gives the teeth a new shape, colour and in some cases, alignment.
Veneers Sydney provide a timely and effective solution to a variety of tooth problems. It is basically a thin layer of material that covers the front surface of the tooth to find a relief for tooth discolouration, chipped or broken tooth, misaligned or uneven teeth.
At Sydney CBD Dentistry, we offer two types of veneers:
- Composite veneers
- Porcelain veneers
The difference between the two lies in the material used and therefore the cost. For both types, the first initial visit is very crucial in helping you decide what colour, shape and how many are needed for your smile.
This visit will also help you determine which type may be more suitable for your lifestyle and aesthetic goals. To find out which is best for you, contact us at Parramatta Dentistry for a consultation with our dentists.
- Composite Resin Veneers: Interest free payment plan from $30/week
- Porcelain Ceramic Veneers: Interest free payment plan from $57/week

At Sydney CBD Dentistry, we offer both porcelain and composite resin dental veneers to suit different needs and preferences. It is important that you read the information provided by us, as well as having a proper consultation with any dentist.
Composite veneers are made of the composite resin material, such as those used in white fillings, and are built up on the tooth. Composite resin is a polymer based material filled by ceramic particles. Minimal preparation may be required of the teeth prior to the composite veneers being placed.
The advantages of composite veneers are that they can be done in one appointment, they are not as invasive to the natural tooth, and they are the more budget friendly option for the same smile. It is the most flexible dental material, both in its usage and characteristics. Composite resin can be used to cover up certain stains on teeth as well as be built up on smaller upper teeth.
Some drawbacks to composite veneers are that they are inherently weaker when compared to porcelain veneers, making them more prone to chipping over time. They are also prone to stains over their lifetime and will need replacing or repairing more frequently because of that.
- Composite Resin can be carefully adapted to tooth structures with minimal or no cutting to tooth structures
- Can often blend into the tooth structure seamlessly
- Ideal material for minimally invasive dental veneer material
- Allows the dentist and patients to immediately change the smile with simple addition and reduction to best suit the patient’s preferences.
The average expected life-span of the veneers range between 5-10 years, with higher possibility of repairs required due to chipping and staining which may compound to long term cost to the restoration*. We often recommend this treatment as a minimally invasive option and for those patients who are new to the veneer dental treatment for its reversibility and conservative nature**.
We also recommend this as a transitional veneer to aid our patients decide on what their desired final aesthetic is and can be upgraded to ceramic veneers.***
* Repairs incur a standard restoration cost.
** Tooth preparation varies significantly between individuals. Your dentist will be able to advise this on examination.
Porcelain veneers are veneers made of porcelain that are then bonded to the teeth. These veneers are made in the lab with dental technicians according to the shape and shade decided between you and the dentist.
Dental ceramics have long been regarded as ideal long-term restorative materials. Emax is one of the most popular, dominant dental ceramics around, indicated for a variety of treatment options, most notably, dental cosmetics. Dentists have successfully utilised this ultra-strong dental ceramic for more than a decade with proven track record.
Porcelain veneers have some great advantages, being that they do not pick up stains as fast as composite veneers, are stronger and less prone to chipping, and better at masking misalignment and dark intrinsic stains. They can be designed to appear natural to match with the neighbouring teeth or can be made brighter for a more photogenic smile.
Some disadvantages are that you will need at least two visits for them to be complete, the process can be more invasive, they can be dislodged and will need to be re-cemented on, and it is the most expensive option between the two.
Emax (Lithium Disilicate) has been the “IT” material in the dental industry for the past decade. It has extremely high resistance to fracture and is also regarded as one of the most beautiful dental ceramics in the world. It has been used extremely successfully across the globe by many well-known dentists and ceramists to produce some life-changing smiles. There are also very good clinical track-records to back its use in many difficult situations, including extremely thin veneers, dental crowns and bridges, and even implant restorations where raw strength is required, but aesthetic cannot be compromised.
The average life expectancy is between 10-20 years, depending on the actual ceramic materials and techniques as well as the lifestyle habits, diet and oral hygiene of the individual treated with veneers.
At Sydney CBD Dentistry, the process of having veneers done will take a couple of visits from you for us to design the new smile, prepare it and finish it.
The first appointment, the consultation, is very important. At Sydney CBD Dentistry, we encourage you to have an open and honest conversation with our cosmetically minded dentists about how you want your smile to be. This appointment is where we will discuss the shades, the shape and what material will be the most suitable.
Impressions, photos and scans may be taken in these appointments. Sometimes, we will require you to come back after this for a complete check up and clean prior to the veneers being placed in order to prepare the teeth and surrounding structures for the veneers.
Some things to think about and ask could be:
- What type of smile would you like? A more Hollywood smile or a Natural smile?
- Do you want a whiter smile?
- Do you want a wider smile?
- Are there spaces between teeth that you want to cover?
- Do you want to change the shape of your teeth?
- How many teeth were you thinking of getting veneered?
- What are you expecting from this new smile?
- How much will the treatment be? And will there be any future costs?
There may be things that have to be done before the veneers are placed – such as a general clean or some fillings. Some other treatment may be required prior to veneers being placed in order to achieve the smile you want such as: Invisalign or braces, gum contouring and tooth whitening. All this and more will be discussed with you on the day.
For Composite Veneers:
The next visit will be when the veneers are placed. It will be a long appointment, where the dentist will be preparing each tooth and bonding them on. But by the end of this appointment, expect a new smile!
So make sure to come in comfortable clothing and have something to eat before we start! It may take you one or two weeks to adjust to the new smile, so practice at home putting on your new smile. Some minor adjustments may also be needed, so we will usually see you in a few weeks to review how they are going.
For Porcelain Veneers:
There will be two more visits after the consultation. The first visit will be where our dentists will be preparing your teeth for the veneers, and a set of temporary veneers will be placed over the teeth.
These temporary veneers are just placeholders for the real deal so they are quite prone to chipping and falling off. Be gentle for the next couple days until the next appointment where your new smile is ready!
On the last and final appointment, it will be a long appointment, the temporary veneers are removed and the porcelain veneers are placed in! Your new smile is here to stay for a while.
It might take a while to adjust to smiling so practicing at home is a must. It may take a week or so to be familiar with them, so we usually will see you then to see if any adjustments are needed.
The aftercare of veneers are very similar to that of your natural teeth. Good brushing and daily flossing is expected, paired with a diet limited in sugary foods and drinks.
Good gum health is also important to maintain not only the veneers but the teeth that have been veneered, so we encourage you to come in and see us every 6 months for a regular dental clean and check up on them.
A customised night guard may be advised by the dentist to protect the veneers which comes at an additional cost.
- The warranty is limited to failures of materials, including debonding/fallen off and fracture of materials. It does not apply to recurrent dental decays, or loss of tooth due to accidents, gum diseases, and dental abscesses.
- Patient must have had dental examinations and cleans at least twice a year at our practices. If the patient is an existing patient at our practices, some discretion consideration is applicable should the patient failed to attend for regular examinations and hygiene maintenance.
