Improve Your Smile and Protect Your Teeth with Our Dental Veneers
Having a set of teeth you’re insecure about affects your confidence. You may have a chipped, discoloured, gapped, or crooked set that’s affecting the way you speak or smile. Getting the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted is easy with dental veneers.
Dental veneers are thin layers of tooth-coloured materials bonded to the front of the teeth. Colour-matched to the natural colour scheme of your teeth, they create a seamless finish. Veneers are usually made of composite materials or porcelain and are permanently attached to your teeth. Besides improving the aesthetics of your smile, they also protect your teeth from staining and gradually wearing down.
The dental veneers we offer at Joondanna Family Dental are strong, thin, and custom-made for every patient. They look completely natural and beautiful. Your new smile will look fabulous, thanks to our custom-designed veneers! Our experienced dentists at Joondanna Family Dental aim to provide exceptional care in giving you a new and reformed smile with dental veneers.
Advantages of Dental Veneers
Improve Aesthetic: Dental flaws can make you self-conscious about your smile and affect your confidence. You might have trouble smiling and feeling good about your appearance if your teeth are chipped, discoloured, or misshapen. Joondanna Family Dental offers dental veneers for people who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile but don’t want complex treatments.
Dental veneers are thin shells that are positioned over your teeth to cover their front surfaces. However, you may need a composite filling first to repair the damage like chips and cracks, and stains prior to having a veneer. Veneers can make your teeth look better and make you smile more often.
Natural-looking: Veneers are an excellent option for people who want to make their dental cosmetic work appear more natural. These artificial teeth are made up of thin layers of material that mimic the colour of healthy teeth. Colour-matched veneers ensure an exceptional appearance.
Our friendly team understands that everyone’s teeth are unique, and we offer a range of custom-made veneers to ensure an exceptional finish. We only use the highest quality materials available at Joondanna Family Dental to ensure that our patients receive the most natural-looking results possible. Veneers are also resistant to stains, so they can help you maintain a great smile.
Restore Damaged Teeth: Veneers are a great way to restore your healthy smile and protect your teeth from further damage. They are thin layers of porcelain placed over the damaged tooth. This protects your teeth that have been damaged by decay or grinding.
Joondanna Family Dental offers dental veneers as a way to protect your damaged teeth. They are glued to your teeth using a strong adhesive. This will give your tooth the strength and support it needs to resist further damage.
Long-lasting: Veneers are a great investment for patients looking for a long-lasting dental treatment. They are stain-resistant and durable. With proper care, veneers can last for many years.
Joondanna Family Dental is proud to offer our patients high-quality dental veneers. We use only materials of the highest quality, and our skilled technicians take great care in creating each veneer. With routine brushing and flossing and regular visits to our office for professional cleanings, your dental veneers can last for many years!

FAQs about Veneers
From consultation to veneer placement, the entire process usually takes one to two appointments. Each appointment would last an hour or so.
Composite resin veneers can be bonded in one visit. It is necessary to reshape the entire tooth before bonding, and the composite material is shaped and glued on. A special light is then used to solidify the composite. Your dentist will then polish it so that it looks like a natural tooth.
Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are created in a dental laboratory, so they take longer. The process usually takes one to two weeks. Your dentist will take a mould or impression of your teeth after removing a small part of the enamel, and send them to the dental lab. This will ensure a snug and proper fit. You might be fitted with temporary veneers during the waiting period for your permanent porcelain veneers. A subsequent appointment will be scheduled once your permanent porcelain veneers are ready. They will be fitted, checked, and permanently bonded to your teeth with dental cement.
Veneer treatment usually removes a small portion of enamel, so candidates with enough natural tooth enamel should be a good choice. An ideal candidate for dental veneers should also be in good dental health and have minimal cosmetic issues, such as:
- Chipped tooth
- Uneven teeth
- Worn teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Cracked tooth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
There are risks associated with every dental procedure. Despite the potential risks of dental veneers, they can easily be avoided with proper care.
- The dental procedure involves the removal of some of the natural tooth enamel. It may result in teeth becoming more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. However, this effect should subside after a few weeks. Consult your dentist if the sensitivity persists.
- Bruxism or jaw pain can occur when a veneer is not fitted correctly.
- Veneer failure is more likely if dental issues are not addressed prior to placement. Before getting dental veneers, your dentist may recommend treatment for existing dental issues, such as bruxism, tooth decay or gum disease.
- During the enamel removal procedure, the dentine beneath the enamel surface can be damaged. But this is very rare.
Maintaining your veneers properly can help them last longer. The following tips will help you maintain the quality of your veneers:
- Brush at least twice a day, and floss daily. Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouth wash.
- Don’t bite into hard foods such as hard candy and ice.
- Do not use your teeth to open bottles or packages.
- If you play a contact sport, you should wear a custom mouthguard to protect your veneers from breaking or chipping. Teeth grinding can also damage your veneers. If you grind your teeth during sleep, wear a nighttime mouthguard to protect your veneers.
- Regular dental check-ups and oral hygiene treatments are also recommended every six months.
Veneers are so durable that they rarely break. However, veneers are not indestructible. Even the strongest natural teeth can break under the wrong kind of pressure or force.
There are a number of reasons why a veneer can break:
- Frequently biting into hard foods
- Constant tooth grinding
- Incorrect design or placement
- Tooth decay underneath the veneer
- Blows or impacts to the face
Dental veneers can permanently improve the appearance of discoloured or damaged teeth. There are alternatives to dental veneers that are less expensive and more temporary:
- Teeth Whitening:
If you have stained or discoloured teeth, tooth whitening is cost-effective. Getting your teeth whitened by a dental professional in-office or purchasing an over-the-counter teeth whitening kit are both options. Although over-the-counter solutions may work, professional teeth whitening is more effective.
- Dental Bonding:
Bonding is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to repair minor tooth damage, such as chips or cracks. The procedure starts with roughening your tooth, applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the damaged permanent tooth and solidifying it with UV light. It may be necessary to shape the composite resin material after it has solidified.
