WHY porcelain veneers?
Impossible to detect
Porcelain looks similar to tooth enamel. A thin porcelain veneer, fitted precisely onto a natural tooth, exactly mimics its colour and light reflective qualities.
Porcelain is non-porous, so porcelain veneers don’t stain or discolour. They require no more care than real teeth; brushing twice a day and flossing ensure they stay in perfect condition.
Porcelain veneers require minimal shaving of tooth enamel and rarely need a gum lift. They are fixed quickly and may require sedation but not anaesthesia.
What are porcelain veneers?
They are permanently fixed to natural healthy teeth that require improved aesthetics, correcting a bad smile by improving the alignment, shape and colour of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made in dental labs to fit perfectly while improving your smile and bite.
Like composite veneers, they are fixed in what is considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure to correct teeth that are:
- irregularly shaped
Benefits of porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are the best option for a perfect smile because they are virtually invisible, fitting precisely over natural teeth and aligning perfectly with the gum and adjacent teeth.
Porcelain veneers are light reflective and have a realistic sheen; they don’t discolour or stain like other types of veneers could. This makes them look more like natural teeth, than composite or instant veneers do.
Porcelain veneers require no more care than regular teeth do. Effective brushing and daily flossing can make them last up to 15 years, whereas other types of veneers have a much shorter lifespan.

Do porcelain veneers replace natural teeth?
Porcelain veneers are not a replacement for natural teeth. They are thin shell-like covers that are fixed onto your teeth by our dentist in our dental clinic near Bella Vista, giving you a beautiful smile.
Are porcelain veneers painful?
Fitting porcelain veneers is minimally invasive and does not cause too much discomfort, but we offer sedation to patients who are nervous about dental treatments.
Can porcelain veneers be replaced?
While there is rarely a reason to replace porcelain veneers, it is possible to remove and replace them without much fuss or damage if the dentist is skilled.
Are dental veneers covered by insurance?
Any type of dental veneer is considered cosmetic surgery and so is not covered by insurance.
Are dental veneers a cosmetic treatment?
Yes, dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment because they improve dental aesthetics to give patients their dream smile.
Which habits can harm porcelain veneers?
If you have porcelain veneers near Bella Vista, you should not indulge in activities that put pressure on them, such as chewing your nails, crunching ice or biting into seeds and nuts. You should also avoid opening packets with your teeth.
What should I do if a veneer falls off?
If any of your porcelain veneers become dislodged or come off completely, keep the veneer safe till you can get to an appointment for your emergency with our dentist near Bella Vista. Do not try to glue it on yourself, as the dental bond material is different to any glue you may have access to!
How many dental veneers do I need?
This is determined during the initial consultation with our dentists.
The answer depends on the condition of your actual teeth, which can be judged after a proper examination of your mouth and a discussion of your lifestyle and preferences.
Where are dental veneers placed?
Whether you have chosen porcelain or composite veneers, or even instant veneers, they are mostly fixed on the upper front teeth in sets of two. However, if required, they can be placed on the front lower teeth as well. More are placed on the adjoining teeth, if required, to enhance your entire smile.
Do porcelain veneers need replacing?
Porcelain veneers are made of strong ceramic and are unlike to get damaged. In rare cases, patients may opt to replace their custom porcelain veneer if their gum has receded and their original, imperfect tooth is showing above the veneer, giving an unsightly appearance.
Which porcelain veneers do you use?
We use Infinity Veneers because their innovative composition makes them impervious to stains and discolouring.
Is it possible to predict the dream smile?
Yes, it is! At our dental clinic near Bella Vista, we use digital smile design software to show you your new smile!
What are temporary veneers?
Temporary veneers are thin acrylic or resin material placed on teeth that are being prepared for the cosmetic dental veneer process.
