Nothing says ‘smile makeover’ quite like the instant impact of porcelain veneers. Veneers are a popular solution trusted worldwide for their incredible impact on aesthetics and their long term durability. Whether you’re seeking a full hollywood smile or a subtle, natural result, veneers are a fantastic solution for many cosmetic dental concerns.

Porcelain Veneers in Hawthorn

A veneer is an ultra thin piece of porcelain placed over an existing tooth in order to correct shape, colour or texture – sometimes all three! Technology these days means that modern veneers are incredibly hard to detect due to how fine and tooth-like they are. If you’ve ever met someone who seems to have a perfectly shaped and sized smile that still looks very natural, you might have met someone who has had veneers done!

Elevate Dental Hawthorn works alongside a team of talented ceramicists who specialise in the creation of bespoke veneers. It is essential for each veneer to be made specifically for your smile in order to look natural, and ensure durability over the lifetime of the veneer. Ultra thin and non-porous, porcelain veneers keep a natural lustre and minimise possible staining, making them a long term option for a brilliant smile that lasts year after year.

What issues can veneers help with?

Unevenly shaped and sized teeth
Discoloured teeth
Gaps between your teeth
Chipped and cracked teeth
Mildly crooked teeth

Frequently Asked Questions about Veneers

You’ll start your veneer journey at your complimentary Smile Makeover session with one of our friendly Hawthorn dentists, who will assess the viability and discuss with you all your cosmetic dentistry options. If viable, the dentist will then remove a very thin layer of the tooth which provides an ideal surface for the veneer to adhere to. While your veneer is being created by one of our specialist ceramicists, your dentist will attach a temporary veneer to the tooth. In two weeks, you’ll be invited back for another appointment where your dentist will attach the permanent veneer. During this appointment the dentist will ensure the fit and look is perfect, and show you your new smile!

Not only do veneers improve the aesthetics of your smile, but can also add durability to your teeth. Most porcelain veneers have a lifespan of 10 – 25 years.

This lifespan is impacted by certain factors, just like the enamel of your natural teeth. Certain activities, such as clenching or grinding can damage or wear down a veneer, as can allowing decay to build up on and around the veneer and teeth. While the look of a veneer will remain the same indefinitely, if the veneer is subject to trauma it may develop staining, cracking or chipping.

The lifespan of porcelain veneers is impacted by certain factors, but generally have a life span of 10 – 25 years.

Just like tooth enamel,

Veneers are unique, just like your natural smile. As a result, the cost depends on many factors as they are a customised solution which may also involve other services. At your free Smile Discovery session, we’ll provide you with not only recommendations and advice by one of our dental professionals, but also a full costing of your unique proposed treatments.

While porcelain is a sturdy, incredibly strong material, accidents can happen where a veneer might be damaged or cracked. If you’ve had an accident and damaged a veneer, you can book online or call us to arrange an emergency dental visit as soon as possible.

Definitely! Veneers are a great option to correct more mild or moderate aesthetic concerns such as crooked teeth or gaps, but you may find your dentist recommend other treatments as well, to create a desirable outcome. Many clients also find having a whitening treatment as well as their veneers means they can match the colour of their teeth for a unified, brighter look.
