What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that cover the visible surface of your tooth, similar to how a contact lens or acrylic nails are applied. They are used to change the appearance of your teeth and are commonly used as part of a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are permanently glued onto your teeth individually. As a result, they look and feel like healthy natural teeth.
What Issues can Veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers beautify a smile and generally form part of a smile makeover. If you don’t like the shape of your teeth, the colour, or the texture – porcelain veneers allow us to change all those things and allow complete control over the amount of change. They can correct evenness of colour, worn teeth, chipped teeth, slight rotations and inclination issues.
What can I expect from My Porcelain Veneers?
At Iconic Dentistry, we fully design your smile before starting the treatment. As a result, you will be able to see the end result, the difference between your current smile and your new one, before we commit to any permanent changes. You will even be able to test drive a mock-up version of your veneers in your mouth to see if you are fully happy with the concept.
There is no guesswork and no surprises. Your result will be exactly as you expect it to be because you will have designed it together with you. Your porcelain veneers are entirely bespoke and individualised just for you. So your smile will be as white as you like them to be, as characterised as you like them to be; as natural as you want. Your veneers will look and feel like they belong to you.
Will My Smile Look Real & Natural?
Your smile will look absolutely real and natural, like it belongs to you. At Iconic Dentistry, we design your smile from a global facial perspective taking into account your dynamic smile: the way you talk, the way you laugh, the way you smile, and the way your teeth need to work together when you’re eating – all of the details that matter.
Iconic Dentistry porcelain veneers are designed with dynamic movements in mind and lighting – how the light reflects from your smile under different conditions. The texture, colour, shade, translucency, and details all come together to give you a real and natural look. We can design your smile to any brightness level you like and keep it looking natural. This means your smile will look incredible whether you are taking a selfie, having a professional photo shoot, or simply hanging with your friends and family.
What Colour, Shape, and Size should I Get?
The colour, shape, and size of the veneers will be determined during the consultation and smile design process. This will depend on your facial harmony – how the teeth sit on your face during smile, speech and chewing – and how it all balances with the rest of your facial structure. The colour, size and shape will be constantly reviewed, reassessed, and refined throughout the entire process of creating your veneers. And if you’re not fully happy at the time of final insert, we are happy to repeat and revise as much as needed to give you your perfect smile. In short, we got you covered.
How Many Teeth do I need to do?
The number of teeth needed to be treated with veneers depends on each individual person. It depends on what the current teeth are like, and what we’d like to achieve as an end goal. The more teeth that receive veneers, the greater the change. Some people have as little as 1 veneer, whilst others need up to 24. We generally recommend veneers to be placed in bilateral pairs to maintain symmetry, balance, and visual optics. Most smile transformations typically require 8 to 10 veneers.

How Long will Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers can last from 7 to 20 years. There are many factors that determine how long veneers last for. Some people have a more complex bite, some people have a heavy biting force, or grind their teeth in their sleep. These all affect the life of the veneers. We generally recommend protective night guards to help keep your veneers at their best.
Regular dental visits are important to keep the gums and underlying natural tooth healthy as these provide the support and foundations to your veneers. You Iconic Dentist will make individualised recommendations to help maximise the life of your veneers as well as maintenance schedules. Usually this is 6 monthly.
Porcelain Veneers vs Dental Crowns
Porcelain veneers visually look identical to dental crowns in your smile. The difference between a veneer and a crown is that whilst a veneer covers the facial surface of the tooth only, a crown covers the back portion as well. The decision to choose a veneer or crown depends on the foundations of the tooth, and the way you bite together. This is a clinical decision, and your dentist will advise what is most appropriate for your tooth. Often in a smile makeover, there is a combination of crowns and veneers used.
Are There Alternatives to Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a treatment modality used to achieve a particular goal. At Iconic Dentistry, our treatment planning is results based. That means we work out the end point before we decide on which approach is best. This may mean Porcelain veneers, but it may also mean any number of alternate treatments. These include composite veneers, teeth whitening, composite bonding, realignment of teeth, periodontal plastic surgery and much more. A thorough aesthetic analysis with your Iconic dentist will help to work out what is the best approach for you to achieve your specific goals.
What is the Process and Visits?
This is where our aesthetic dentist works out with you what your cosmetic goals are. What would you like to achieve for your smile? Don’t worry if you have no idea – we’ll walk you through it. From here we take all the diagnostic information we need to make sure we treatment plan correctly. Digital records are taken in the form of: photos, x-rays and digital 3D scans.
In this visit we go through the treatment options, and what is required to achieve your aesthetic goals. We show you models, mock-ups and photos to help you visualise the end result. If there is a dramatic change, we can even temporarily place veneers on your teeth for a trial smile to see what it all looks like. Once you are happy with the intended direction, we can move forward to performing the treatment. If there is anything you are unsure of, we can plan further or discuss alternatives.
This is where the teeth are prepared to receive the final veneers. From here you will receive temporary veneers in the shape of the final veneers. This is where we will test the veneers further to ensure they fit well with your smile dynamics, aesthetics and function.
We review your temporary veneers to see how they have integrated with your smile. From here we can place additional characteristics and make minor changes to ensure the details are just right for you. We also demonstrate and refine the final veneers on a digital format where we can adjust things until your smile is just right. Here we also confirm the shade and optical properties for your veneers.
Everything comes together here. This is the day you are fitted with your final veneers. Your smile transformation comes to life here.
We review your veneers to make sure everything is just right and make sure you know how to look after your new smile.
How much do Veneers cost?
Every smile is unique, so the overall cost of your porcelain veneers depends on your individual needs. Most patients walk away with 8-10 beautiful new veneers as their final treatment. Individual porcelain veneers are priced at $2000 per tooth. The treatment will likely require some diagnostics fees depending on the complexity of your smile. These will be quoted after we see you for a consult. Interest free payment plans are available from $80/week, which can encompass the entire treatment.
