Porcelain Veneers FAQ’s


Am i suitable for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a suitable option for the majority of individuals as long as their teeth and gums are in good health and there is no significant overcrowding or spacing present. In situations where severe overcrowding or spacing is detected, we typically recommend orthodontic treatment prior to considering porcelain veneers.

What benefits are there?

One notable advantage (in comparison to composite veneers) is that porcelain veneers are highly resistant to staining. Additionally, porcelain is the most aesthetically appealing material at our disposal, providing the most natural-looking results. Once bonded to the teeth, porcelain veneers exhibit exceptional durability and have the potential to last for up to 15 years.

Will they look natural?

Porcelain veneers have the remarkable ability to mimic the appearance of a natural tooth with great precision. They can be seamlessly integrated with adjacent teeth, allowing for the placement of a porcelain veneer on a single damaged tooth while achieving a flawless blend.

Will my natural teeth be affected?

While porcelain veneers can be applied as “zero preparation,” meaning no removal of the natural tooth structure beneath the veneer, in most instances, it is necessary to remove a thin layer of the enamel’s surface to achieve the best aesthetic outcome. This step helps ensure optimal aesthetics and seamless integration of the veneers.

How painful is it?

When it is required to remove the surface layer of enamel, we will administer local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. The anaesthesia effectively numbs the specific area of the mouth being treated, ensuring a pain-free experience for you.

How long will my veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are renowned for their exceptional durability and long lifespan. Typically, they can endure for approximately 10 to 15 years, although this can vary based on factors such as oral hygiene, lifestyle habits, and the quality of the veneers. With appropriate care and maintenance, it is possible for certain porcelain veneers to surpass the 15-year mark and continue to provide lasting benefits.

So the veneers are not permanent?

While porcelain veneers are not classified as permanent dental restorations, they do offer a durable and enduring solution for enhancing the aesthetics of teeth. It is important to note that at some stage in the future, replacement may be necessary. Nonetheless, porcelain veneers provide a long-lasting option for achieving an improved appearance of the teeth.

How about maintenance?

The maintenance needed for porcelain veneers is comparable to that of natural teeth. While they generally do not demand extensive upkeep, regular care and attention are essential to preserve their longevity and appearance. By adhering to good oral hygiene practices, minimising exposure to staining substances like coffee and tobacco, avoiding excessive force or pressure, and attending routine dental check-ups, you can effectively contribute to the durability and aesthetics of your porcelain veneers.

Composite Bonding FAQ’s


How painful is it?

Composite bonding is a swift and comfortable procedure that can often be accomplished in just one visit to the dentist. Generally, local anaesthesia is not required, and the process can be completed in as little as 30 minutes per tooth.

Why choose composite over porcelain veneers?

Both composite bonding and porcelain veneers have their advantages and disadvantages. Composite bonding is less invasive, often allowing for the preservation of natural tooth structure. It can be completed in a single visit, whereas porcelain veneers typically require multiple appointments. Composite bonding is generally more cost-effective, but porcelain veneers have a longer lifespan, are stain-resistant, and do not require regular polishing. Both materials can achieve highly natural-looking results and can be used to create great aesthetic outcomes.

After I agree, how long does it take to get started?

A full dental health assessment is required to create the best treatment plan for you. If any general treatment is required to establish good oral health, this will be completed in advance of cosmetic treatment. We will often require you to see our hygienist to ensure that the gums are perfectly healthy, any staining has been removed and you understand how to keep the restorations clean.

What about upkeep?

To ensure the optimal appearance of bonded teeth, regular maintenance is necessary for composite bonding. This involves consistent brushing and flossing to uphold good oral hygiene and prevent staining. It is also important to steer clear of hard or sticky foods that may potentially damage the bonding material. Additionally, habits such as nail biting should be avoided to prevent any chipping or breakage of the bonding.


Furthermore, it is important to note that the bonding material utilized in composite bonding may gradually experience discoloration, particularly with the consumption of certain beverages like coffee and red wine, as well as smoking. As a result, regular polishing is required to uphold the aesthetic appeal of the bonded teeth. Your dentist will offer tailored instructions on caring for your bonded teeth to maximize their longevity and preserve their appearance.

Will my natural teeth be affected in any way?

In contrast to other dental treatments that necessitate the removal of tooth enamel, composite bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that preserves the integrity of healthy tooth structure. No healthy tooth material needs to be removed during the process.

How natural will it look?

Our dental practice takes pride in the artistry involved in our procedures. Your dentist will carefully select a resin shade that harmonises with the colour of your surrounding teeth, resulting in a natural and seamless appearance. Composite is a highly adaptable material, allowing for customisation. Consequently, your dentist will schedule a “review and adjust” appointment a few weeks after the bonding procedure. This additional visit allows you to acclimate to your new smile and express any desire for minor refinements. Rest assured, there is no restriction on the number of adjustments we can make to your composite restorations. Our primary goal is to ensure your complete satisfaction with your transformed smile.

What are the benefits?

Composite bonding safeguards the original structure of your natural teeth as there is no need for filing. Referred to as “same day veneers,” composite bonding/veneers can be applied in a single appointment, offering a less intricate alternative to porcelain veneers.

How long does the treatment last?

Composite bonding is an enduring and resilient dental procedure that, when accompanied by appropriate oral care and periodic polishing, can maintain its effectiveness for approximately five years.

Is this the right treatment for me?

Composite bonding is a dental technique that can enhance the look of teeth that are discoloured, chipped, cracked, or misaligned. This procedure involves skilfully sculpting and smoothing a resin material to closely resemble the colour and contour of the neighbouring teeth, leading to a smile that is visually appealing..

Are the results of teeth whitening permanent?

No, the results of whitening treatments vary from patient to patient. Lifestyle such as the types of food or drinks that a person takes can increase the rate of discolouration such as tea, coffee or red wine. Home Whitening kits are beneficial as you have the ability to ‘top up’ and refresh the colour of your teeth at anytime you wish.
