Composite Veneers Vs Porcelain Veneers – Which Is Better?
The two most common materials for Veneers are Porcelain and Composite (Resin). The best option for you will depend on the quality you are after and your budget.
Porcelain Veneers are typically much higher quality than Composite Veneers, and will last much longer. How long do Porcelain Veneers last? That will depend on the quality of your treatment. In our experience at Brisbane Smiles, high-quality Porcelain Veneers combined with good oral health practices can last you up to 20 years.
How long do composite veneers last? Resin Veneers are generally a shorter-term solution than Porcelain Veneers and are usually selected due to budget restraints. However, with the right treatment and proper oral health care, our Resin Veneers can last 5+ years.
How Much Do Veneers Cost in Australia?
Veneers cost Brisbane will vary depending on the material, quality and treatment required. Veneers can range from $500-$2000 per Veneer. Typically, Porcelain Veneers in Brisbane will cost between $1800-$2200 each for top-quality results. Here at Brisbane Smiles, we offer Porcelain Veneers Packages and Payment Plan options.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs
How are your Porcelain Veneers made?
Brisbane Smiles uses innovative pressed porcelain technology to create precisely fitting Veneers. Each veneer is hand-crafted by our in-house Dental Ceramicist Technicians, who combine artistry with science and expert knowledge of materials to improve smiles drastically.
Are Veneers painful to insert?
The Veneers process is not painful at all. It’s a minimally invasive procedure – most patients will experience no pain or discomfort. The only preparation required for your Veneers is removing a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. During this step, there is an option for a local anaesthetic to numb your teeth throughout the appointment if necessary.
What can’t you eat with Veneers?
With your Brisbane Smiles Porcelain Veneers, you can eat any regular food. We simply recommend avoiding chewing your fingernails, biting into hard objects and crunching on ice cubes. However, during your Smile Trial, you’ll have temporary Veneers – you should avoid biting into hard foods or objects.
How do you clean Veneers?
Simply use a soft toothbrush to thoroughly clean the teeth. You can also add a fluoride rinse and fluoride toothpaste or gel to your cleaning regimen. Gently floss the veneers and bridges, being careful to avoid breakage. An Oral-B Electric Toothbrush with a pressure sensor will assist you in avoiding brushing too hard and damaging the gums around your Veneers.
Do Veneers stain like normal teeth?
No, Porcelain Veneers do not get discoloured or stained easily. Your final Porcelain Veneers are highly polished with a gloss finish and will rarely stain in comparison to the natural enamel on your teeth. Only on occasion, some surface stains may build up from incorrect mouthwashes and dietary supplements. These stains can be easily removed by our Dentists.
Resin Veneers can stain more easily, which requires a simple visit to the Dentist for polishing. Other teeth in your mouth may stain and require regular cleaning on a 6-monthly basis. You may also touch up your natural teeth with Teeth Whitening options at home or in surgery at greater than 6-monthly intervals.
Do Veneers affect your breath and mouth?
No, Veneers do not cause bad smells in your mouth. Foul smells can develop around the edges of veneers if you neglect your oral hygiene, or have gum disease such as Gingivitis. In fact, high-quality Veneers can restore your mouth health, the smooth tooth surfaces reducing buildup and allow you to clean more easily to reduce the causes of bad breath.
