Cosmetic Veneers:

Veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of natural teeth and give you a smile makeover you always desired. If you’re concerned about discolouration, chips, misalignments or the shape of your teeth, then veneers could offer a solution. They can also be used to close the gaps between your natural teeth. They are made of either a tooth-coloured resin composite bonded material or a thin layer of porcelain shell, carefully crafted to fit over the surface of your tooth.

I usually recommend highest quality, minimal reduction porcelain veneers over traditional, more destructive version. This means that your natural enamel is preserved and veneers are fully reversible. We offer these at an affordable price.

You can learn more about veneers in “Ask Dr Helen” page of this website. If you’d like to discuss whether veneers are appropriate for you, please call us on (03) 9510 5597.

Tooth-coloured fillings:

A direct restoration (meaning it is placed directly into a cavity by a dentist) – also known as a filling – is one of the most common ways to restore a tooth.

A tooth coloured or composite restoration will closely resemble the colour and shape of your natural tooth. It can be used as a sole option, or as a cost effective alternative to a stronger crown to restore your tooth.
