At Blacktown Dental Group, we are here to make sure that you love your smile.

If you’ve been considering making a change, we have the solutions that will help you transform your appearance.

Dental veneers are cosmetic restorations that we bond to the front of your teeth to change how they look when you smile. If your teeth are healthy, but you want to address aesthetic concerns, veneers offer fast results without the extra bleaching or braces.

Why Invest in Veneers?

Applying several dental veneers across your smile can help address cosmetic issues such as:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Tooth enamel that is uneven or misshaped
  • Staining and discolouration on teeth

Depending on how many teeth are involved and what you want to change, we offer two types of dental veneers to choose from: composite and porcelain.

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the choice option for dramatic smile makeovers involving multiple teeth. Each restoration is handmade from specific shades of porcelain to look natural and fuller. After prepping your smile and taking an impression, the permanent veneers are ready to bond in place about two weeks later.

Same-Day Composite Veneers

Composite is the same type of material we use for tooth-coloured fillings. When only one or two teeth are a concern, we can shape the material directly over your tooth and cure it into place immediately. This process offers faster results for aesthetic imperfections such as chipped teeth or gaps when more comprehensive treatment isn’t needed.

Caring for Your New Smile

Veneers can wear down or chip away without the right protection. We recommend sleeping in a night guard to eliminate unnecessary wear and keep your smile healthy.

You’ll want to brush and floss around your veneers thoroughly and plan a checkup every six months. Avoiding dark-staining foods and liquids such as tea and red wine can help your smile look brighter, longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know whether veneers are right for me?

The best way to determine if you can get veneers is to have a consultation with our team. We’ll evaluate your teeth and let you know what we recommend you do. There are few people who aren’t suitable candidates for veneers. For example, if you grind your teeth at night, you shouldn’t get veneers. They’ll be easily damaged by the grinding and won’t last as they should.

Are there alternatives to getting veneers?

The right treatment options for you depend on what you would like to achieve. If you have stained teeth, we can explore whether teeth whitening is right for you before we explore the idea of veneers. We’ll be sure to let you know all the possible solutions that will help you reach your particular goals.

How many visits are necessary to get veneers?

The number of visits you’ll need depends on the type of veneers you choose. Porcelain ones are custom-created. If you choose these veneers, we’ll have a single appointment to take impressions of your teeth. Then, you’ll return to have your porcelain veneers cemented into place. With composite veneers, the procedure can be completed in a single appointment as they’re painted on, layer by layer.
