Veneers Patient Information

Brisbane Veneers Patient Information

A veneer is a natural-looking Dental restoration that covers the outside or visible surface of teeth. We create bespoke, high-end Porcelain and Resin Veneers that allow you to smile with confidence.

What Are the Benefits of Veneers?

A Veneer can change the shape and colour of a tooth as well as hide defects. It is bonded into place and cannot be taken off.

Veneers are made of very thin tooth-coloured porcelain or resin.

The benefits of Veneers include:

  • Veneers can change the size, shape and colour of teeth
  • Porcelain Veneers will not stain
  • Veneers remove minimal tooth structure and are the most conservative porcelain restoration

What Conditions Can Veneers Correct?

Porcelain Veneers are used to correct:

  • Discoloured or yellow teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Eroded teeth
  • Worn teeth, attrition or abrasion
  • Fillings with poor aesthetics

What Does the Veneers Procedure Involve?

The Veneer procedure requires pre-planning and design of the new shape.  The actual treatment is performed in two stages.  The First Stage is the preparation where the tooth may be numbed, the tooth reshaped, impressions or scans taken and a trial Veneer placed on the tooth.


You will then test out the new Trial Veneer and the laboratory will make your Final Veneers. At the second appointment, the Trial Veneer is replaced with the New Veneer and treatment is complete.  The new Veneer will then be in place for its lifespan and will need to be checked routinely and replaced at the end of its lifespan.

Veneers Cost Brisbane

We will provide you an estimated cost of your Dental Veneers. In the case of Porcelain Veneers, your treatment estimate will include a component for the making of the Porcelain Veneer.  We construct all Porcelain Veneers for our patients with experienced Dental Technicians onsite and you can feel assured, the process meets the best standards.

Throughout the Porcelain Veneer preparation stage, we may need to alter the design and actually prepare the tooth for more like a crown.  You can feel assured our Dentist will discuss this need with you and that a Crown and Veneer will have the same appearance, with improved longevity.

In some cases, further costs may be incurred for reasons such as de-bonding, root canal treatment and replacement and the ongoing reviews and checkups, all at an additional expense to the patient.

Alternative Treatment Options

Alternatives to placing a Veneer are to either leave the tooth as is or to place a composite restoration. Composite restorations remove decay but are limited because they will stain more and do not change the size and colour of teeth as well as veneers.  Orthodontics or Invisalign are also an alternative.

Veneers Results and Risks

In having a Veneer, some inherent risks exist both to the tooth and to the Veneer itself.

The risks to the tooth are:
• Preparation for a Veneer permanently alters the tooth underneath the Veneer.
• If the cement seal at the edge of the Veneer is lost, decay may form at the juncture of the Veneer and tooth.
• Preparing for and placing a veneer can irritate the tooth and cause “post-operative” sensitivity which may last for up to 3 months.
• Teeth that have had veneers may need root canal treatment less than 1% of the time during the lifetime of the tooth.

The risks to the Veneer are:
• Porcelain may chip over time.
• If the tooth needs a root canal treatment after the Veneer is permanently cemented, the procedure may fracture the Veneer and the Veneer may need to be replaced.
• Over time, Porcelain Veneers will remain colour-stable. Resin Veneers will discolour. Adjacent natural teeth will discolour. There will therefore be a mismatch of colour over time which may require whitening or replacement of the veneer should this be a concern.
• Food may impact between teeth, teeth may become mobile, and teeth may wear with time, this is no different with Veneers.

Veneers FAQs

How are your Porcelain Veneers made?

Brisbane Smiles uses up-to-date pressed porcelain technology to create precisely fitting veneers. Precision and quality are in every detail. Each veneer is handcrafted by our in-house Dental Ceramicist Technicians, who combine artistry with science and expert knowledge of materials to improve smiles drastically.

How customisable are your Porcelain Veneers?

Our Porcelain Veneers 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 should never separate. In some cases, Porcelain Veneers can also be used to give the appearance of instant Orthodontic straightening, without the requirement of braces or clear aligners.

Are Porcelain Veneers my best option?

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, and abrasion. They can transform your teeth into a perfect, dazzling smile! To understand the best Cosmetic Dental Treatment for you, visit our expert Dentists for a Cosmetic Consultation.

How long do Porcelain Veneers last?

Porcelain Veneers have varying life spans. How long your veneers last is determined by the type of material used, how the Dentist inserts them and how you look after them. In our experience, precision-made Porcelain Veneers combined with good oral hygiene (consisting of proper diet, daily flossing, brushing and regular 6-monthly dental Check-Ups) look just as good and function just as well up to 20 years later. This can only be achieved with the best materials and the 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.

How long do Resin Veneers last?

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 and good oral hygiene are required for lasting results.

Are all Porcelain Veneers the same?

No, not all Porcelain Veneers are of equal quality or aesthetics. Some Porcelain Veneers are not 100% pure Porcelain, sometimes only 50% Ceramic material and 50% filled with resin. 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 person and tooth, which is what we do best at Brisbane Smiles.

What is the first step of Porcelain Veneers Treatment?

You will start with a Porcelain Veneers Consultation at Brisbane Smiles. The Consultation Appointment includes an assessment and photography session, along with 3D teeth scans. During the visit, you will participate in designing your new smile and view your own personalised Smile Simulation. Your Dentist will discuss different treatment recommendations and options for your own bespoke package.
