Porcelain Dental Veneers in the Melbourne CBD

Chipped, crooked, worn and stained teeth can ruin the appearance of any smile. At Family Dental on Collins, we recommend that patients with such issues get composite or porcelain dental veneers in Melbourne. Veneers can correct these flaws, and they can last for many years before replacement is necessary. Our dental veneers in Melbourne are made to match the colour of the patient’s natural teeth in order for the veneers to seamlessly blend in with them.

What Are the Differences between Composite & Porcelain Veneers?

Both of these types of dental veneers our Melbourne CBD dentist offers have their own unique advantages and disadvantages, which are detailed below.

Composite Veneers

  • Composite resin is a tooth coloured and durable material
  • The material is thinner than porcelain, meaning less or none of the natural tooth has to be removed
  • Suitable for minor tooth restoration treatments
  • Causes small changes to the front teeth
  • Can reshape teeth after receiving orthodontic treatment
  • Repairs small fractures
  • Closes gaps between teeth
  • Can be made and fitted in just one appointment
  • Don’t last as long as porcelain veneers
  • Can last between 4 to 8 years if they’re taken care of
  • More affordable option

Porcelain Veneers

  • Bonded to the teeth’s front surfaces
  • High durability
  • More stain and chip resistant than composite veneers
  • Very closely resemble the appearance of real teeth
  • Generates major changes in the shape of teeth
  • Manufactured in a dental laboratory and then sent to the dental clinic
  • Can last up to 25 years if they’re taken care of well
