The benefits of getting veneers
There are a number of great benefits that come with getting veneers at Iconic Dentistry. Our veneers are specifically designed to suit every individual’s smile and, more broadly, their face. They can be used to cover anything from chipped teeth to discoloured ones — helping create a beautiful smile that is uniquely yours. Veneers will allow you to walk away feeling confident in your smile, which is what makes them such a worthy investment for so many people.
Suitable candidates for veneers
While anybody can get veneers, there are various cosmetic events for which they are particularly suitable. Many of our patients are born with pointed teeth, small teeth, or teeth with significant gaps in them, and getting veneers can vastly improve confidence in these instances. Veneers are also suitable are after specific occurrences throughout the course of our lives, such as when a tooth has been chipped, or one or multiple teeth have significant discolouration. In these instances, veneers will help to mask these issues.
The different types of veneers
Did you know that there are various types of veneers — each made from a different material and with its own advantages? These are a few of the options when it comes to veneers:
Porcelain veneers are one of the most common types and are developed using advanced processes tailored specifically to suit your individual needs. At Iconic Dentistry, we create many of these veneers in Perth.
Ceramic veneers are another type of veneer that are fairly common and have a wide range of benefits. When choosing ceramic veneers, there is substantially less preparation of the tooth required, which makes the application process slightly easier. Like porcelain veneers, these veneers are sturdy and will remain a feature of your smile for many years to come.
Alternatives to porcelain and ceramic veneers
There are other materials used to make veneers, with direct composite resin being one of the more popular alternatives to porcelain and ceramic veneers. However, these veneers are not typically as structurally sound and require more maintenance than their ceramic or porcelain counterparts.
Getting your veneers applied
The process of getting veneers put in takes place over the course of two appointments. In the first, your dentist will make a mould of your teeth to use for customising the veneers for your mouth specifically. At the second appointment, your dentist will ensure that the veneers that have been created are perfect for your mouth, before conducting a thorough clean of your teeth on which the veneers will be placed. This ensures that nothing is trapped underneath the veneers once they’re fixed to your teeth. Once this step is complete, your dentist will apply the veneers, and you’ll walk out of the clinic with a brand new, brighter smile.

What are veneers?
Veneers are a thin shell that is attached to the front of some or all of somebody’s teeth. At Iconic Dentistry, we make our veneers in Perth from ceramic materials to create the strongest, longest-lasting veneers. People choose to have veneers applied for a wide range of reasons, be it a feature of their teeth they wish to improve or an issue that has arisen throughout the course of their life, such as a chip or discolouration.
What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain veneers?
Ceramic and porcelain veneers, as the names suggest, differ in the materials used to create them. Ceramic veneers are made from various ceramic materials, including zirconia, and result in sturdy and long-lasting veneers. Porcelain veneers are also renowned for their durability and are created from a thin piece of porcelain that is stuck to the outside of your tooth.
How long do veneers last?
The length of your veneer’s life will depend on a number of factors, most notably the types of materials that are used. Typically, ceramic and porcelain veneers are known for being particularly durable, and can be expected to last for at least 10 to 15 years, and often substantially more. The length of time for which they last can be affected by the patient — the better you care for your veneers, the longer they should last.
Do you need straight teeth before veneers?
You certainly don’t need to have perfectly straight teeth before having veneers applied, but in certain cases, fixing your teeth can be a suitable option prior to having them put on. If your teeth are particularly crooked, for example, and this is something that you would like to have rectified, then straightening your teeth can be a good idea. If you want to have your teeth straightened beforehand, SmileStyler clear aligners will do the job without anyone knowing you have them on.
How much do veneers cost?
The cost of veneers varies depending on the types of materials that are used. Typically they will cost around $1,000 per tooth, so the total price will vary depending on how many teeth you are getting veneers applied to.
