An Innovative Option for Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not sure about what Cosmetic Dentistry can achieve then let us explain.  Restorative Dental Treatments such as Veneers, Crowns or Bonding can re-layer the visible and functional surfaces of teeth.  The shapes, the textures, the colour and translucency can all be improved.

In fact, Teeth with moderate to severe: Wear; Abrasion (from toothpastes, acidic diets, gastric reflux, eating disorders); Attrition (chipping of the biting edge of teeth); the Teeth will often perform better over the long-term with restorative dentistry.  This is because without treatment when the enamel layer of the tooth is breached, a tooth will undergo rapid breakdown.  Restoring the Integrity of a Tooth using restorative materials such as Porcelain or Resin helps maintain not just a Tooth’s Aesthetics, but also its Health and Integrity.

Porcelain Veneers are a thin custom-made piece of Porcelain made from a Digital Scan or Impression of a Tooth.  They are custom made to fit to the Micron and made to closely imitate the enamel of a tooth. They are so biocompatible that after bonding to the tooth they should not come away.

Porcelain Veneers can enhance your Teeth and Smile!

Porcelain Veneers are not a one-size fits all. It takes a careful eye, high degree of precision and knowledge, and a team with technology and experience.  There are no two similar ways that treatments are performed, and the materials used to construct Porcelain Veneers significantly vary amongst Dental Practices. Different teeth and mouths require prepared teeth for Porcelain Veneers, and other mouths require no Prep Veneers. Each smile and tooth is different.

Perfecting Smiles with Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are a proven Cosmetic Dental Treatment that our Brisbane Dentists use to transform teeth and smiles. They are a thin, bespoke, custom-made Porcelain Restoration bonded permanently onto the surface of a tooth to reshape, resurface and mimic enamel, creating a beautiful and natural aesthetic smile.

Porcelain Veneers are indicated for and used to correct:

  • Discoloured or dark teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Eroded and yellow teeth
  • Fillings with poor aesthetics

Smile Masterpiece® – Porcelain Veneers

Not all Porcelain Veneers are equal. In fact some Porcelain Veneers are not 100% pure Porcelain, sometimes only 50% Ceramic material and 50% filled with resin.  There are situations that Porcelain Veneers require no drilling of the tooth, and other times the tooth needs more drilling.  Porcelain Veneers have many different designs and can be made of many different materials.  Porcelain Veneers require a technical process that is bespoke and individual for each and every person and each and every tooth.

Custom and bespoke Porcelain Veneers are a speciality of our Dental Laboratory at Brisbane Smiles. Our premium Porcelain Veneers are made of Emax Porcelain, pressed not milled giving added strength. We then layer shade and life-like translucent effects into the Porcelain Veneer in the artform of creating a beautiful Smile Masterpiece®.

Start with a Consultation. The appointment includes an assessment and photography session along with 3d teeth scans. During the visit you will be able to participate in designing your new smile in your Smile Simulation and the different treatment recommendations and options will be discussed along with your own bespoke package. See you potential New Smile with your Smile Simulation!

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Brisbane Smiles uses up to date pressed porcelain technology to create precisely fitting veneers. Precision and quality is everything.

They are extremely versatile, and can be used to alter the shape, size, position and colour of unseemly teeth. Once bonded correctly to teeth, they are extremely strong and look very natural, and will never separate. Each veneer is handcrafted by Dental Ceramicists, who combine artistry with science and expert knowledge of materials to drastically improve smiles.

Porcelain Veneers can also be used to give the appearance of instant Orthodontic straightening, without the requirement of braces or clear aligners in some cases.


Porcelain Veneers are what we call ‘The Ultimate Smile Makeover Solution’. They are ideal for discolouration corrections, closing “gappy” smiles, altering the appearance of “crowded teeth”, and repairing the loss of tooth enamel from tooth wear, erosion, grinding, abrasion. They can absolutely transform a Smile from ‘OK’ to ‘WOW!’


Teeth Veneers have varying life spans, and this is determined by the type of material used, the Dentist inserting them, and how you look after them.

In our experience, precision made Porcelain Veneers with Good Oral Hygiene of diet, daily flossing and brushing and regular Dental Check-ups, look just as good and function just as good some 20 years later. This can only be achieved with the best materials and highest level of precision and after-care. Of course, Veneers are as fragile as teeth, and Porcelain is just as easily chipped or broken in a traumatic episode.

Resin Veneers are generally a shorter-term solution and are usually chosen due to budget restraints. However, with the right technique, design and proper care taken, our Resin Veneers can last 5+ years. Again, Resin Veneers can be easily chipped or broken as can normal teeth. General care is required.

Other Common Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain Crowns are used to restore the enamel layer on front and back teeth that are broken or weakened teeth due to oversized fillings or root canal treatments or fractures and can also be used where teeth are are worn, discoloured, rotated, poorly shaped, cracked. Porcelain Crowns can be used to correct discolouration, worn teeth, broken teeth, a large cavity, spaced teeth, and crowded teeth.

Firstly, when a Porcelain Crown is made, the tooth is prepared to allow for a thin spacing where the Porcelain is to fit around the tooth. A precise impression is made and the Porcelain Crown is constructed. When the crown has been made by our dental laboratory, the crown is then brought back to the mouth and bonded into position, covering the tooth to slightly below the gums, replacing the missing enamel.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dental treatment. Its primary purpose is to restore whiteness to your teeth and brilliance to your smile.

Modern teeth whitening treatments are quick and have immediate and noticeable outcomes. These procedures can be performed either at your local dental surgery with zoom whitening or at home. Teeth whitening is a procedure however that should best be conducted by a qualified dentist in a sterile and controlled environment such as a dental surgery.


Gum-lifts are used to:

Removing excess growth of Gum Tissue changing a square tooth to rectangular tooth

Smiles: Gummy smile reduction (often in conjunction with Porcelain Veneers)

Function: Exposing hidden, healthy tooth to assist in rebuilding the tooth

Aesthetics: Adjusting the Gum-line to improve appearance of the gum, tooth and smile

Gummy smiles are characterised by short, square teeth with excessive upper gums displayed when smiling.

After Gum-lift there will be less gum-line displayed in the smile and teeth length ratio to width should become more appealing with a rectangular length to width ratio.
