Five Reasons to Consider Getting Dental Veneers

Centre for Dentistry in Brighton and Ferntree Gully in Victoria is dedicated to helping you make the right decisions regarding your dental health. Our oral health services include general, preventive and cosmetic.  In the past you may have heard of one of our most popular cosmetic procedures: dental veneers.  But what exactly are they?

A dental veneer is an aesthetic cover that is usually made from porcelain or a similar material.  It is permanently affixed to the front of your natural tooth.

Why consider getting veneers?   What are the benefits versus braces or bonding? Here are just a few…


Gaps in between teeth are easily filled in.


Crooked Teeth.  Since veneers are a cover, or a shell that fits over your natural tooth, it can be done so in a way that make your teeth appear straight.


Quicker Than Braces.  Adults especially aren’t thrilled about the idea of wearing metal braces.  Dental veneers are a quick, usually two step procedure.  You will have your permanent new smile within a matter of weeks!


Discoloured Teeth.  Some people’s teeth are badly stained or discoloured.  In severe cases a whitening regimen may not be very successful.  Veneers are custom shaded so they can be any hue imaginable.  Most people opt to get a pearly white look. One thing to consider when choosing which shade to use, is that you want them to appear natural.  Getting the whitest white isn’t always the best way to go.  The color of your complexion should also be taken into consideration.  (You don’t want people to look at you and know that you have veneers, you want them to just think that you have really white and pretty teeth!)


Long Lasting.  An alternative to veneers is bonding.  However, veneers are a better option because they do not stain like bonding does and they last longer.
