Want to know if dental veneers are for you? Your 5 FAQs answered by Spa Dental Sydney CBD


Have you heard about dental veneers?

Like an instant tooth whitener and straightener of smile misalignments, dental veneers are perfect for correcting asymmetric issues in a smile instantly and, the best part is, they can be fitted in a single hour!

Indeed, countless celebrities owe their improved smiles to dental veneers and now, thanks to an increase in demand, our dental team can provide you with a smile worthy of the red carpet!

When you come to Spa Dental Sydney CBD for veneers, our team will discuss with you the benefits of this procedure and answer any questions you may have. We will talk to you about your suitability for this treatment and discuss its use alongside other cosmetic options,
sometimes known as a smile makeover.

But, before you run to the phone to book an appointment, we can bet you have some questions you want answered. To make the most of your consultation with our team at Spa Dental Sydney CBD, here are the top 5 FAQs answered!

Will having them fitted hurt?


Our team at Spa Dental Sydney CBD will always ensure that your gums are numbed prior to the fitting of the veneers, just in case you are worried about any discomfort.

However, the process of fitting veneers involves minor preparation of the teeth, you will feel slight pressure, which is to be expected. Once prepared, dental cement is placed on the tooth and your customised veneer is fitted. Very simple and straightforward!

Do they last a long time?

Indeed they do!

A porcelain veneer can last anywhere between 6- 20 years depending on your oral hygiene and lifestyle choices.

Be aware that if you are a smoker or regularly consume alcohol, this can cause your gums to swell and recede, which can cause your veneers to loosen at an earlier stage.

I have stained teeth – can they really whiten them?

If you have tried every whitening toothpaste on the market to no avail, it may seem that the promises that surround veneers are too good to be true.

However, we have had cases at Spa Dental where our patients have had their teeth whitened up to 16 shades in a single sitting due to veneers. So, if you want to hide staining, get rid of that yellow look or even conceal chips or cracks, veneers can do it all!

Do they need any special aftercare?

No, they don’t.

Veneers are extremely easy to look after and, as mentioned before, as long as you brush, floss and rinse every day, they should stay in good condition for a long time.

Just because you have had them fitted doesn’t mean you can skimp on your dental hygiene!

Are they expensive?

An initial glance at the cost of veneers may make them seem expensive, but they are a worthwhile investment with a great return! At Spa Dental, our team is proud to be able to offer our patients a payment plan or financing options, to help you spread the cost evenly over the upcoming months.
