The Perfect Smile
Dental veneers are now more popular than ever, thanks to their ability to protect, repair, and boost the overall appeal of your teeth, especially when you smile. If you require the services of a dentist in Bendigo who has extensive experience in dental veneers, you have come to the right place.
A dental veneer is a custom-tailored shell made from either porcelain or composite materials that is placed over a tooth to conceal aesthetic imperfections.
They are used as a cosmetic solution for various dental challenges such as:
- Misaligned teeth and/or tooth shape irregularity
- Damaged teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Uneven coloured teeth due to generally poor oral hygiene habits
- Uneven gaps between teeth
The Pros and Cons of Getting Veneers
With today’s advancements in dental technology, dental veneers usually last between 10 and 30 years. However, natural wear and tear over the years can cause them to get damaged, especially considering they are going to be used on a daily basis. In the event your dental veneers get damaged, they need to be replaced.
One major advantage of wearing dental veneers is that they have a natural look and cannot be easily differentiated between your natural teeth. Well-designed porcelain veneers are easily tolerated by the gums and are stain-resistant, providing a cleaner look that is longer lasting than other cosmetic alternatives.
In most cases, enamel removal is required to create space for the placement of a veneer. You might think this could lead to increased tooth sensitivity, but we assure you it is not a cause for concern since getting sensitive teeth as a result of wearing veneers is a very rare occurrence.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the standard procedure for getting a dental veneer?
This involves a professional dentist consultation, preparation and actual bonding of the veneer with your tooth. The entire process takes place over the course of at least three visits.
Are there alternatives to dental veneers?
Yes – you can choose from composite resin bonding, cosmetic contouring, crowns and orthodontics. We can advise you which would be the best option for your smile and teeth.
Do veneers require special attention?
In short, no. You can continue to eat and drink whatever you like, as long as you practice good oral hygiene habits on a regular basis; for example, brushing your teeth two to three times daily, and flossing and rinsing your mouth properly using a well-known mouthwash brand. A well-constructed veneer feels and works the same as your natural tooth.
Thank you so much for my bridge and all your hard work
Thank you so much for my lovely new smile! I have never enjoyed smiling so much – Life Changing!
Thank you for all your support, hard work and humour during my treatment recently. I very much appreciate all the effort and the end result!!!
I am a dental phobic and have been terrified of the dentist since I was six years old (I am also 73 now). The reason why I tell you this is because in case you are a dental phobic, pleas be brave and go, you will not regret it and nothing will be done against your will. Perhaps you have children or just want to visit for treatment. I urge to join this practice and be reassured and happy as I am.
I can’t thank you enough for the gift of straight teeth! Thank you for your expertise, always being so friendly and helpful and for going the extra mile in fitting me in your Saturdays and after work too. I appreciate all that you have done for me.
