Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth and restore their normal function for chewing and grinding food. To help patients achieve the smiles they want, our dentists use the latest technologies to create long-lasting veneers in a single visit.
Why choose dental veneers?
Dental veneers are often the recommended option for emergency and cosmetic dental treatments, including:
- Restoring strength to chipped or damaged teeth
- Improving the appearance of stained or discoloured tooth surfaces
- Filling gaps between teeth
- Correcting uneven or misaligned teeth
Once they are bonded to the underlying tooth, composite and ceramic veneers look and function just like normal teeth, with the added advantage of being more resistant to stains and damage.

Composite resin veneers
We can fit composite resin veneers in a single visit for up to eight teeth. Composite dental veneers do not require as much preparation as ceramic or porcelain veneers, and they are the recommended option for correcting small chips or cracks when there is still a sizeable portion of the original tooth remaining.
Ceramic veneers require more preparation time, but are the best option for extensive restoration work, such as for teeth that are more severely damaged, decayed, uneven or severely discoloured. Our dentists will first prepare your teeth by removing part of the enamel surface, and you will be fitted with a temporary covering while your new veneers are being created in a laboratory using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology – this technology ensures the perfect fit for your teeth.
Emergency dental – veneers
Veneers are often used in dental emergencies when teeth are either chipped or broken.
