The True Cost of Porcelain Veneers

It may well be true that behind every celebrity smile is a great cosmetic dentist. Given the advancement of modern technology and techniques, there aren’t many aesthetic issues that cannot be resolved by a skilled, aesthetically trained dentist.

For all the modern wonders of cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers remain one of the most sought-after treatments for instantly beautifying one’s smile. Porcelain veneers are thin, completely unique and customised ceramic or porcelain shells that can effectively erase (or shall I say, conceal) any dental flaws that you may have. In addition to their cosmetic benefits, they also provide protection for your underlying teeth. This treatment is ideal for patients who wish to hide their dental imperfections – cracked, stained, crooked or misshapen teeth – while enhancing their smile in relation to their facial features.

Cost of porcelain veneers in Sydney

Porcelain veneers are a clear favourite due to their outstanding aesthetic and structural properties. Although they cost more than composite veneers, porcelain veneers are well worth the investment simply because they last longer and look more like natural teeth, mimicking the properties of natural tooth enamel. Prices of porcelain veneers in Sydney vary from one practice to another relative to the skills and reputation of the dentist, as well as the technical and laboratory support. The saying “you can pay too little but rarely too much” certainly applies in this case.

Porcelain veneers are a quick treatment option for a great smile.

The application of dental veneers usually takes at least two dental visits. While you will be consulted on your preferences, the expert input of the dentist on the final look is most critical. Their expertise and experience will bear on the aesthetic options you can choose from and their clinical skills will make sure the veneers add beauty, not just bulk, to your teeth. The difference in skill levels may translate between results that are awkward looking or simply stunning.  Our Smile Test Drive service also plays an important role in creating beautiful, natural smiles for patients whilst also allowing them to ‘test-drive’ their new smile before even touching a tooth!

Choosing your cosmetic dentist in Sydney

The experience of the dentist is also crucial in obtaining the right shade and characterisation of the final restoration from their trusted dental ceramist. Although porcelain veneers are created at the lab, the dentist is the best person to oversee a seamless transition between the colour of your natural teeth to that of the veneers. A professional cosmetic dentist will not rest until your veneers blend perfectly with the rest of your smile.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

If not administered professionally, you may even require additional procedures like fillings or cleaning to maintain your teeth long-term. Obviously, such corrective work will add to your time and money costs. Professionally applied dental veneers, on the other hand, can last for more than 10 years – if cared for appropriately.
