Composite and Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Veneers

Dental Veneers are a form of Cosmetic Dentistry in which a layer of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite-resin is placed over the visible surfaces of your teeth. Cosmetic Veneers can be placed on the teeth to address a range of issues, including discolouration, uneven tooth alignment or shape, chips or cracks, worn tooth enamel and abnormal spacing of the teeth.

Dental Veneers are typically placed to improve the overall look of your smile and are therefore considered a Cosmetic procedure. They can, however, also be recommended in certain cases to protect the surface of damaged teeth to eliminate the need for more invasive treatments. When it comes to creating your veneers, Melbourne Centre for Dentistry offers two choices – Porcelain or Composite Veneers.



Porcelain Veneers

‘Porcelain’ or ‘Ceramic’ Veneers are individually created by a highly-skilled Dental Technician in one of the select Melbourne-based Dental Laboratories we work with. Porcelain/Ceramic Veneers are built to withstand more than a Composite Veneer, as they are formed from a tougher material. This type of Veneer is recommended when the desire is for a longer-term, stronger solution and/or the correction required is more severe. Several appointments are required to obtain the high-quality Final Result that will create the smile you have always wanted. Porcelain Veneers are by far the most popular choice within our Practice.

Composite Veneers

Composite Veneers are sculpted by the Dentist during your appointment at our clinic. This type of Veneer is recommended when budget is an issue, the modification required is less severe or a shorter-term solution is required. They are made from a tooth-coloured filling material and provide an option for the budget-conscious or when a minimal correction is needed.
