Dental Veneers from $399/tooth:

At North Sydney Dentistry, we offer a range of materials dental veneers to suit everybody with different needs and preferences. It is important that you read the information provided by us, as well as having a proper consultation with any dentist. In fact, we encourage that you seek out second opinions regarding dental treatments of any sort, because we believe that it is your right to make an informed decision.

1) Composite Resin Veneers for $399/tooth

Composite Resin is a polymer based material filled by ceramic particles. The advancements in the past 20 years has seen significant improvement to the materials strength and aesthetic.

It is the most flexible dental material, both in its usage and characteristics.

Composite Resin can be carefully adapted to tooth structures with minimal or no cutting to tooth structures, and can often blend into the tooth structure seamlessly. This makes it an ideal material for minimally invasive dental veneer material. It also allows the dentist and patients to immediately change the smile with simple addition and reduction to best suit the patient’s preferences.

Unfortunately, due to limitations of current generation of materials, dentists are still hesitant to apply this as a long-term veneering material. The average expected life-span of the veneers range between 5-10 years, with higher possibility of repairs required due to chipping and staining which may compound to long term cost to the restoration*. We often recommend this treatment as a minimally invasive option and for those patients who are new to the veneer dental treatment for its reversibility and conservative nature**.

We also recommend this as a transitional veneer to aid our patients decide on what their desired final aesthetic is and can be upgraded to ceramic veneers***.

* Repairs incur a standard restoration cost.

** Tooth preparation varies significantly between individuals. Your dentist will be able to advise this on examination.

*** If the veneers were performed by us, the upgrade to ceramic veneers is $549/tooth.

2) Smile Make-over with 6 or more teeth from $5094 for Porcelain Ceramic Veneers - being $849 each.

Smile is a reflection of your joy and happiness. It is often complimented as the best make-up or accessory one can have. Should a smile be affordable? Yes. Absolutely.

Which is why we feel strongly that a beautiful smile transformation should be affordable.

When you need more than 6 veneers from us, we offer a significant discount to you because it does not take us twice as long to do an extra veneer, but it matters to you. For around $849/veneer when you receive 6 or more veneers, ceramic veneers do not come more affordable than that. Yes you can certainly have this done overseas, but when it comes to explaining your preferences and ideas, we believe our fluency in English and Chinese still comes as an advantage here.

You will be able to communicate with our dentists better with what you want, and we will reply with our candid opinions of what may suit you best.

Is veneers your solution to your life-long problems? Probably not. But at least, you can start smiling.

Occasionally additional characterisation and processing may be recommended by your dentist to enhance the look of the dental veneer to make it more “life-like”. This requires more time to make the dental veneer and as such additional fees may apply. The maximum cost of our Ceramic Veneers is up to $1350 each to provide patients a greater variety of choice and services, but it is entirely up to the choice of the individual patient as to which veneer option they would like.

*We offer a 5 year conditioned warranty to Emax and Lava Ultimate restorations:

1) The warranty is limited to failures of materials, including debonding/fallen off and fracture of materials. It does not apply to recurrent dental decays, or loss of tooth due to accidents, gum diseases, and dental abscesses.

2) Patient must have had dental examinations and cleans at least twice a year at our practices. If the patient is an existing patient at our practices, some discretion consideration is applicable should the patient failed to attend for regular examinations and hygiene maintenance.

Individual Ceramic Porcelain Veneers from $1190/tooth

Dental ceramics have long been regarded as an ideal long-term restorative materials. The average life expectancy is between 10-20 years, depending on the actual ceramic materials and techniques.
We offer 2 main types of  ceramic materials for our dental veneers, with differences in costs explained.

Lava Ultimate Resin Nano Ceramic from $1190/tooth*

3M ESPE’s Lava Ultimate (Nano-filled zirconia particles embedded in special prepared polymer matrix) is one of the newest generation of dental ceramics, also known as hybrid ceramics. Strenuous researches had been conducted to combine the advantages of both dental polymer and ceramics together: It can be modified inside the mouth without the need for a ceramic furnace, is kinder to opposing grinding teeth than any other dental ceramics, as well as having extremely high polish retention and resistance to fracture. External stains can be applied to the restorations for more realistic appearance**.

* Produced with our CADCAM machines

** Staining incurs an additional cost of $50/tooth, but is not compulsory to achieve life-like aesthetic.

Emax Veneers from $1190/tooth

Emax (Lithium Disilicate) has been the “IT” material in the dental industry for the past decade. It has extremely high resistance to fracture and is also regarded as one of the most beautiful dental ceramics in the world. It has been used extremely successfully across the globe by many well-known dentists and ceramists to produce some life-changing smiles. There are also very good clinical track-record to back its use in many difficult situations, including extremely thin veneers, dental crowns and bridges, and even implant restorations where raw strength is required, but aesthetic cannot be compromised.

We offer Emax in different levels of customisations:

a) Standard Glazed Emax from $1190/tooth. The veneer is made and glazed to life-like shine. It has comparable translucency to tooth structure and is often adequate to produce very aesthetic smiles.

b) Stained and Glazed Emax from $1190/tooth. The veneer is made and customised staining is applied to produce more details on the veneers, and a layer of fine porcelain glaze is applied on top.

c) Layered and Glazed Emax from $1190/tooth. The veneer is stacked by layers by ceramist to mimic natural layers of tooth structure, then polished and characterised to customised requirements, and finished with a fine glazed porcelain on top.

Implant Crowns not included in this promotion and indicative pricing is $1490-1790 depending on material and component costs.

Treatment Plans provided earlier than 1st February 2016 are effective for 3 months from date of issue

Our dental ceramist based in Sydney is pleased to present us with a discounted rate due to our work volume and to benefit our patients, we feel it is important to pass on this discount. We also have a CEREC machine which can handle simple cases less than 6 teeth, and is ideal for those who are in a hurry as it can be completed in a single-visit.
We strongly recommend for cases with more than 6 Veneers to be completed in 2 visits minimum as the smile design process is rather complicated and the dentist may recommend a trial period with temporaries prior to placing the final Emax veneers.
Further discounts may be applicable for those requiring more than 10 Porcelain Veneers as we will pass on any cost savings from a higher number of units.
A nightguard may be advised by the dentist to protect the Veneers.

**Note other Conditions apply as follows:

a) 5 year limited warranty for Porcelain Veneers is limited to breakage of material, and does not cover for pre-existing or newly developing dental diseases not related to the veneers. Patients must present for regular scale and clean maintenance 6 monthly at any of our practices to be eligible for this warranty to ensure good health and maintenance of oral hygiene.

b) No warranty is applicable to composite resin dental veneers as studies show the material is conventionally believed to be a weaker material than Porcelain resin material. Aesthetic of the composite resin veneer is comparable to ceramic veneer initially, however strength and resistance to staining is poorer and more maintenance may be required. A nightguard may be advised by the dentist to protect the Veneers.

c) Veneers may not be the ideal dental treatment for every dental cosmetic issue. Upon consultation, the dentist will discuss with you the best option rather than initiate the work without gaining your consent.

North Sydney Composite Veneer - CASE 2

hornsby-dentist-2-before

Careful placement of direct nano-hybrid composite resin veneers has managed to significantly improve the aesthetic of the patient’s smile. The shades were carefully chosen to blend with the remaining teeth and shapes that can help close the gaps of the teeth without looking out of proportion.

This is the effect after the porcelain veneers for both the top and bottom teeth were completed. A number of changes have been made to suit the patient's preference. We believe in communication and we encourage our patients to give us input during cosmetic dental treatments. The patient was extremely happy with the final result.

North Sydney Cosmetic Dentist Case 4 After

What is a dental veneer?

Dental veneers can best be described as a disguise for your stained or damaged natural teeth. The veneers are attached to the teeth and are unrecognisable once the process is complete. Veneers are a well-practiced technique in modern dentistry. They provide excellent aesthetics and are only bonded to the front of the tooth that is visible when an individual smiles. This treatment plan is a conservative method of restoring a patient’s smile to a whiter and brighter smile that you can be proud to show off.

At North Sydney Dental we offer two types of veneers. Composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are more affordable option; they are made from composite resin. Our porcelain veneers are a little more expensive but offer greater durability and aesthetics. These Procedures cause minimal discomfort and whilst 2 at a time are recommended so that the tooth colour and shape are even. We understand people live busy lives and it is possible that our dentist will perform up to 8 veneers at once, to minimalize the number of trips back to the dentist if requested and time permits.

Dental Veneers

What are Dental Veneers?

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain material that is bonded to a tooth to cover the front surface of teeth for improving appearance.

Dental Veneers are often used to close spaces between teeth, reshape teeth or whiten stained or dark teeth. They can also protect your teeth from damage and restore their original appearance. Veneers can be made from different veneer material. Have a discussion with one of our friendly dentists to decide which option is most suitable for you.

Who are suitable candidates for dental veneers?

Anyone with healthy teeth, excluding those with weakened teeth, inadequate enamel on tooth surface, decay and periodontal disease. Porcelain veneers are great for those who drink coffee, tea, soft drinks and smoke. It is not normally recommended in those who clench or grind their teeth as this causes the veneers to crack or chip, but we do recommend a mouth guard to protect your veneers. They are also not the best option for very crooked or misaligned teeth in some instances.

How long do dental veneers last?

Generally, porcelain veneers are expected to last 10-15 years as they are very durable materials. If they break, you will need to have the whole veneer replaced hence regular dental care is vital in helping you maintain the life expectancy of your veneers.
