No bigger than a contact lens and thinner than your fingernail, a veneer may be the best option to transform your smile.

Using the latest technology, GWH Dental performs plastic and porcelain veneers in Brisbane and can help you redesign your smile.

Michael and his team use ceramic (porcelain) or plastic materials to create the veneers to achieve whiter-looking teeth and straighten the appearance of teeth or close gaps.

Ceramic (porcelain) veneers

It is a two-visit procedure to have veneers attached to your natural teeth. At the first appointment your dentist will clean and prepare the teeth for an accurate shade selection.

An impression of your teeth is taken to make a mould from which permanent veneers are crafted. Your dentist will attach temporary veneers at this appointment.

On your second visit, your dentist will remove the temporary veneers and try the specially crafted permanent ones, evaluating the fit and aesthetic appeal.

Your teeth will then be prepared so the permanent veneers can be securely attached.

Michael recommends ceramic (porcelain) veneers as they are long lasting and have a more natural sheen to their appearance. They don’t lose their glossy finish and will not discolour over time.

Plastic (resin) veneers

Plastic (resin) veneers can usually be applied in one visit. Also known as composite veneers, they can be applied to the natural tooth without causing damage and can also be repaired or removed if the need arises. They are sculpted directly on to the tooth, eliminating the need for a mould or second appointment. They are a hardwearing option, but do not last as long ceramic (porcelain) veneers.

A veneer can be used to alter the shape, colour, spacing, alignment, length and proportion of your teeth. They are made to match the colour of your surrounding natural teeth.

They are durable and stable, and patients can still enjoy any food or drink without spoiling their new smile. For plastic or ceramic (porcelain) veneers in Brisbane, Michael and the GWH Dental team in Cleveland can explain the procedure and the best option for you.

FAQS About Veneers
Dental veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth, while dental crowns encase the entire tooth. Veneers are more suitable for cosmetic purposes, while crowns are often used for restoring severely damaged teeth
Dental veneers can effectively correct various aesthetic issues, such as stained or discoloured teeth, chipped or broken teeth, slightly misaligned teeth, gaps between teeth, and worn-down teeth.
Yes, getting dental veneers is considered a permanent procedure, as a thin layer of enamel is removed during the preparation process. However, they may need replacement over time due to wear or damage.
Yes, veneers are designed to mimic the natural appearance of teeth, and modern materials offer excellent translucency and colour-matching properties, making them blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
The process of getting veneers is generally painless. Local anaesthesia may be used during tooth preparation to minimise discomfort. After the procedure, some patients may experience mild sensitivity, but it usually subsides quickly.
Dental veneers require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. It’s also essential to avoid habits like biting hard objects, chewing ice, or using teeth to open packages to prevent damage to the veneers.
While many people are suitable candidates for veneers, it’s essential to have a thorough dental examination to determine if veneers are the best option for you. In some cases, individuals with severe tooth decay, gum disease, or inadequate enamel may not be eligible for veneers.
