What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are an excellent solution for those looking to improve their smile’s appearance.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are made from porcelain, a durable, long-lasting material resembling tooth enamel.
They can be used to correct stained or discoloured teeth, close gaps between teeth, and even change the shape or size of teeth and can be customized to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth.

The result is a smile that looks beautiful and natural.

If you are considering porcelain veneers, consult a qualified dentist who can assess your needs and determine if veneers are the right solution.

Why Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can give you a Hollywood smile. But what are they and why should you consider them?

Improved Tooth Appearance

If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers may be an excellent solution. Veneers can alter the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.


Porcelain veneers are comprised of porcelain, a robust and durable material that can last for many years with proper care. Veneers are also stain-resistant, which means they will not yellow with time.

Improved Oral Health

Because porcelain veneers are attached to your teeth, they can assist to protect them from damage and decay.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike other cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers do not necessitate considerable tooth preparation. Most of the time, only a small amount of enamel is removed to place the veneers. Thus the process is minimally invasive as opposed to dental crowns

What does the process look like?

Patient has this work completed in the practice some 15 years ago. However with time the restorations required revisiting.
Unacceptable tooth an gum display, assymetry and narrow upper arch: creating an aesthetic disturbance.
Diagnostic: mock-up & assessment. Finalise degree of gum and tooth showing during smile & speech dynamics, maxillary arch form & smile width. We tested the diagnostic mock up for patient acceptance that guided for final desired aesthetic outcome.
Following with discussion of all risks and treatment modalities with our patient that included No treatment: this is not an option as the restorations are failing and affecting aesthetics Repair existing restorations and gum lift: this is a temporary measure and not accepted by the patient Gum lift & porcelain veneers: best long-term solution, Fixed option: accepted by the patient.
Diagnostic: mock-up & assessment. Finalise degree of gum and tooth showing during smile & speech dynamics, maxillary arch form & smile width. Removal of existing composite veneers & gum lift Impressions for porcelain veneers. Issue the porcelain veneers

Caring for your Veneers

Porcelain veneers require similar maintenance as real teeth. Below are some pointers to keep your veneers in good condition:

  1. Regular tooth brushing and flossing: Use fluoride toothpaste and clean your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Additionally, floss daily to get rid of food particles and debris between your teeth and veneers.

  2. Avoid firm and crunchy foods: they can damage or chip your veneers, including ice, popcorn, and hard candies.

  3. Wear a mouthguard: If you participate in sports or grind your teeth at night, you should wear a mouthguard to protect your veneers.

  4. Avoid excessive biting: Avoid biting on hard things such as pens, pencils, or fingernails with your veneers. Avoid using your veneers to open bottle tops as well. This can cause chipping, cracking, and damage to your veneers.

  5. Visit your dentist in a regular basis: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help keep your veneers in good shape. Your dentist can also inspect your veneers for signs of damage or wear and repair them if necessary.

Dr Sarkis is the maestro of cosmetic dentistry….for years I suffered with 2 slightly darker front teeth due to a childhood accident. I’ve had composite veneers before but nothing compared to the composite veneers Dr Sarkis did……now I feel so confident smiling again……Dr Sarkis I can’t thank you enough…

Monica McKenzie

Quite literally the best dentist I’ve been to in a lifetime. Dr Natasha Koelmeyer specifically is just a wonderfully kind and gentle Doctor. Must also mention that the head specialist here is also second to none. Their knowledge (goodness they know their stuff) their approach, their kind and gentle manner - my daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist. They’ve got a really considered patient centric mentality. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, every single person there including the reception staff is a star. Thank you Designer Smiles!

My journey with Dr Sarkis began about 10 years ago. I did not realise that I had lacked self confidence and shone away from "my true smile". Dr Sarkis was honest, reassuring and professional throughout my process and not only was he able to achieve that perfect smile but achieve same without compromising the health of my teeth and gums.The ongoing care at Designer Smiles is 5 star whether it is a routine check, clean minor or major dentistry. Thank you Dr Sarkis and also your team.

I found Designer Smiles from one of their YouTube videos showcasing the Icon treatment to fix white spots on teeth. Dr. Sarkis Nalbandian's consultation provided me with a thorough plan and showed me how their practise could give me predicable results for my concerns. I knew I was in safe hands. I had Kristy Gupta perform both of my procedures and she was very professional and so kind. I am very happy with my results!

I cannot express how grateful I am for Sarkis and the team at Designer Smiles. Around 11 years ago my life changed when Sarkis first transformed my smile with composite veneers. This month, with my original teeth in tact I returned to have my composite veneers upgraded to porcelain. I was amazed that Sarkis and his team could do this without an injections, no pain and whilst still keeping my original teeth in tact. I absolutely love the result and I would highly recommend that anyone that is unhappy with their smile in any way, must visit designer smiles

Matt Williams

Started my treatment with the team at Designer Smiles in 2019. Had other dental treatments including Maxillofacial, expanders, straightening and gum grafting but out of all the procedures and surgeries Dr. Sarkis was the key as he was applying the ‘finishing product’ which included composite veneers. I am gobsmacked by the incredible job done. He talks the talk and definitely walks the walk. And his support team there are simply incredible and make you feel part of a family not just another dental clinic to take your money. Can not recommend highly enough. Customer for life here!!
