Porcelain Veneers

For a perfectly personalised smile

Got a dream smile in mind? The one that would give you ultimate confidence and have you smiling at every opportunity?

Modern dentistry makes getting veneers simpler than ever before, and at The Village Dentist, we use only the best quality porcelain veneers, technologies and techniques to ensure optimal, lasting results.

With dental veneers, our team of experienced dentists can help transform your smile. And the best part is that this cosmetic process is minimally invasive and results in little to no downtime. We’ve helped many Castle Hill residents, at all stages of life, fall in love with their smiles. It could be you next.

Porcelain veneers are one of two types of dental veneers, the other being composite veneers. At The Village Dentist, we offer both types with pros and cons for each type. Porcelain veneers are as hard as tooth, their color doesn’t change over their lifespan, they don’t stain, their shape doesn’t change and they provide a natural feeling finish to the front surface of the tooth.

A porcelain dental veneer is a custom-made layer of porcelain that fits over the front surface of your natural tooth, enhancing its appearance. Once designed and made, your dentist bonds these thin layers of porcelain to each tooth receiving a veneer. To understand the process in detail and determine if veneers might be a good option for you for achieving your smile goals, we recommend you book a consultation with one of our friendly cosmetic dentists.

There are a number of reasons patients turn to The Village Dentist for dental veneers. This cosmetic dental treatment is exceptionally versatile, providing a solution for a variety of smile concerns, such as:

  • discoloured teeth
  • misshaped teeth
  • slightly misaligned teeth
  • teeth that differ from those around them, i,e. longer, shorter, bigger, smaller
  • gaps between teeth

Undergoing cosmetic dental treatments requires careful planning and consideration. Our Castle Hill dentists take the time to get to know you and determine your exact smile concerns. They also ensure you’re informed every step of the way, so there’ll be no surprises! While the process can differ slightly from one patient to another, here’s a general idea of what you can expect when transforming your smile with porcelain dental veneers:

1. Consultation

Dental veneers are suitable for most dental patients, but not all of them. During a veneers consultation, your dentist will ensure that you’re a suitable candidate for this cosmetic dentistry treatment. This involves an in-depth discussion with you about your smile concerns and smile goals and a thorough oral examination to determine the condition of your teeth and gums. During this appointment, your dentist will also tell you everything you need to know about getting dental veneers, including the associated costs.

2. Design

Once you and your dentist have decided that porcelain veneers are right for you, the exciting part can begin – designing your dream smile! During this step of the process, your dentist will work closely with you to create a smile that naturally complements your mouth and face. This involves deciding which teeth will have veneers and then choosing the shape, size and colour of your veneers. Once you’re 100% happy with your personalised smile design, it’s time to get it sent over to our Australian dental lab so they can make your veneers.

3. Preparation

To fit veneers to your teeth, there’s a little bit of tooth preparation required. Our cosmetic dentists at our Castle Hill dentist rooms aim to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible throughout this process. To prepare each tooth for its veneer, your dentist will slightly shape and etch it so that the veneer can fit over it comfortably and bond to it effectively.

4. Fitting

Once your veneers are ready, you’ll have your fitting appointment. Depending on how many veneers you’re having applied, this may take place over one or more appointments. Your dentist does a final fit check of your new porcelain veneers to ensure they fit absolutely perfectly before bonding them in place. Once bonded to the front surface of your teeth, your dentist will give them a polish to reveal your new and enhanced smile. All that’s left to do is show it off!

To ensure you get to enjoy your porcelain veneers for as long as possible, it’s important you take special care of them. After all, they’re an investment! While porcelain veneers typically last longer than composite veneers, this isn’t without adequate care. 

Thankfully, looking after your new veneers doesn’t require much outside the realm of your standard at-home oral hygiene regime. Your dentist will give you specific instructions for taking care of your new dental veneers, but here are a few pointers: 

  • brush your teeth twice a day, every day, for two minutes a go
  • floss your teeth every day 
  • visit your dentist every 6 months for a dental check-up
  • if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw, consider a bite splint for protection
  • be mindful of chewing hard foods
  • protect your teeth with a customised sports mouthguard when playing high-impact sports

It’s no surprise that porcelain veneers are extremely popular, here in Australia and around the globe. When designed, made and fitted by a knowledgeable and experienced dentist like ours at The Village Dentist, porcelain veneers can provide their proud owners with many benefits: 

  • 100% personalised and custom-made just for you
  • incredibly natural-looking
  • durable and able to stand the test of time 
  • stain resistant
  • minimally uncomfortable process
  • little to no downtime
  • one of the fastest ways to smile your dream smile
