When it comes to cosmetic dental procedures that hide chipped, cracked or blemished teeth, there is no better option than minimally invasive dental veneers. Veneers are extremely thin, tooth shaped shells made of porcelain or composite that are installed directly on the surface of the tooth. Each veneer is custom designed to match the look and colour of the teeth, and is resistant to staining and decay.

Dental Veneers Types

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the most natural looking and most stable material for dental veneers. Porcelain veneers are comfortable, do not affect the surrounding gum tissues and look exactly like natural teeth.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are made using a composite resin material which is a mix of highly durable compounds. Composite veneers are natural looking, easier to install than porcelain veneers and a cost-effective option because they are more affordable and can also be repaired if they become chipped. Although they can get stained over time, composite veneers last for up to 7 years.

Dental Veneers Procedure


The first step in a dental veneers procedure is to prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel to create a rough surface for the veneer to stick to.

Veneer Design

Dentists use advanced computer imaging technology to create the most accurate veneer design for your teeth. This will give you an idea of exactly how the veneer will look before the procedure.


Once the veneer design is finalised, it is sent to a laboratory where each veneer is fabricated using the material you prefer. The final step of the process is when special dental adhesives are used to place the veneer on the tooth.
