Transform your confidence and get a new smile with natural, long-lasting veneers.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to fix or improve their smile at any age. Gain back your confidence with versatile and natural-looking veneers. A popular solution for achieving a healthier or brighter smile, veneers are long-lasting and stain resistant. If your teeth are discoloured, short, chipped, or crooked, veneers will aesthetically enhance the appearance of your smile for years to come.
Veneers are a permanent solution to change the appearance of your teeth. This treatment uses thin shells bonded to the tooth’s entire surface. The overall treatment produces a seamless appearance by enhancing the shape, angle, spacing, or colour of the affected tooth. Veneers are typically made from composite resin or porcelain.
No matter which type of veneers you opt for, both will restore and brighten your smile. Dental veneers are a fantastic option for fixing imperfections and can last a decade or longer. If you feel embarrassed about your teeth or want to smile confidently in photos, composite resin or porcelain veneers are an ideal solution.
If composite resin veneers are right for you, the treatment can be done in a single visit. Our team will match the colour of your veneers so it blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth. A mild chemical is placed on the tooth’s surface for the veneer application to help the composite resin stick to the tooth enamel. We’ll add composite resin layers while ensuring each layer hardens before each application. When the last layer is completed, we shape and polish the tooth until it’s smooth and natural.
Porcelain veneers are a very dependable investment for a long-lasting, natural, and beautiful smile. The treatment is often completed in two visits, and the results tend to last longer than composite veneers. When the treatment begins, a local anaesthetic numbs the area, and our dental team removes a thin layer of the existing tooth to ensure a precise fit for the porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each patient by taking an impression of your teeth and creating a mould.
Temporary veneers are used as placeholders while waiting for the permanent veneers. When the permanent veneers are ready, we’ll remove the temporary ones and prepare the surface of your teeth with a mild chemical. Similar to composite veneers, this provides the porcelain veneer with a better surface to adhere to firmly. Each veneer is placed securely on the tooth using composite resin cement. By the end of the treatment, you’ll have an impeccable new smile.

Dental veneers and crowns are usually made of porcelain but have different purposes. The main difference is how much the tooth is covered or not covered. Veneers use a porcelain layer that bonds only to the front of the tooth to restore discoloured, chipped, or worn teeth. Crowns may cover all sides of a tooth to strengthen and support the tooth after more significant damage.
At The Parade Dental Practice, our compassionate team is happy to discuss your cosmetic dental options to decide which treatment is best for your smile and oral health.
Veneers are low maintenance and generally don’t require special upkeep. Simply maintain your oral hygiene routine by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. It’s recommended to avoid chewing on hard objects or biting fingernails to prevent the veneers from breaking or chipping.
Regular visits to the dentist for check-ups and cleanings are important so we can monitor your veneers and examine the health of your teeth and gums. If you’re interested in getting veneers or have questions about the treatment process, give our team a call today.
