What Are the Types of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers have become a popular cosmetic dentistry solution, offering a transformative approach to achieving a radiant smile.
As you embark on your journey to enhance your smile, understanding the types of dental veneers is crucial to making an informed decision tailored to your preferences. Here, we present the types of dental veneers at Mindarie Quinns Dental Centre.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells meticulously crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. Known for their lifelike appearance and exceptional durability, porcelain veneers offer a natural translucency that mimics the look of natural teeth. These veneers are stain-resistant, making them an excellent choice for achieving a long-lasting and radiant smile. Porcelain veneers require minimal tooth preparation and are custom-made to precisely fit each individual’s teeth, resulting in a seamless and flawless smile transformation.
Composite veneers are made from tooth-coloured composite resin, skillfully applied to the front surface of the teeth in a direct bonding procedure. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be completed in a single dental visit, making them a more time-efficient option. While composite veneers are not as stain-resistant as porcelain, they are more easily repaired if chipped or damaged. Composite veneers offer a cost-effective alternative for individuals seeking an immediate cosmetic improvement and can be a great solution for minor cosmetic issues.

The Veneer Placement Process
Getting dental veneers can be a significant decision, and we understand that it may feel overwhelming. Rest assured, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
Your journey to a stunning smile begins with an initial consultation with your dentist at Mindarie Quinns Dental Centre. During this appointment, you’ll discuss your cosmetic goals, dental concerns, and desired outcome. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health, examine your teeth, and determine if dental veneers are the right solution for you.
After determining that dental veneers are suitable for your needs, your dentist will create a personalised treatment plan. This plan involves selecting the type of veneers (porcelain or composite) and shade to achieve your desired results.
To prepare your teeth for veneers, a small amount of enamel (usually less than a millimeter) will be carefully removed from the front surface of the teeth. This ensures a proper fit and allows the veneers to sit seamlessly in line with your natural teeth.
Your dentist will take detailed impressions of your prepared teeth. These impressions serve as a blueprint for creating custom-made veneers that precisely fit the contours of your teeth and complement your smile.
If porcelain veneers are chosen, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth while the permanent veneers are being fabricated in the dental laboratory. Composite veneers can often be applied in a single visit, eliminating the need for temporary restorations.
For porcelain veneers, skilled dental technicians will meticulously craft your custom veneers in the dental laboratory. The process typically takes a few weeks. Meanwhile, composite veneers are directly fabricated and bonded to your teeth during the same dental appointment.
Once your veneers are ready, your dentist will carefully bond them to your teeth using dental cement. The cement ensures a strong and long-lasting bond between the veneers and your teeth.
After bonding the veneers, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and comfortable bite. This step ensures your new smile looks and feels natural.
What our clients say
“Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.”
“Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!”
“Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!”
“What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.”
“I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.”
“Staff are always super friendly. Really helpful when it comes to dental emergencies. My teeth are forever grateful.”
“Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.”
