Our services

At Boulton Dental, we offer three kinds of veneers: compositeporcelain, and 360-degree Bioclear veneers. It starts with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine whether composite, Bioclear, or porcelain veneers are right for you. Your dentist will also examine your teeth, take x-rays if necessary, take an impression of your teeth, and develop a simple treatment plan to restore your smile.

Composite veneers, the ‘new kid on the block’ in dentistry terms, can be used to enhance your teeth in a number of ways. Thin layers of tooth-coloured resin are applied to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance — these custom-made veneers are designed to improve the shape, size, and colour of teeth, creating a natural and attractive smile.

You’ll find that composite veneers are ideal if your front teeth are worn on the edges or starting to discolour. You can have a piece of your tooth replaced, have a whole veneer, or we can make a whole new tooth using composite resin.

Composite veneers procedure

After your initial consultation appointment, there are a few crucial steps involved with composite resin veneers.

  1. Teeth preparation: In most cases, minimal tooth preparation is required for composite veneers. Your dentist will lightly buff the surface of the teeth to create a rough texture, which helps with the bonding process.
  2. Shade selection: Your dentist will use a shade guide to match the colour of the composite material to your natural teeth or the desired shade for a whiter smile.
  3. Bonding: Your dentist will apply a conditioning gel to the tooth surface, which helps the composite material adhere. Then, they will carefully layer and sculpt the composite material onto the teeth, shaping it to achieve the desired look. Each layer is hardened using a special light.
  4. Shaping and polishing: Once the composite material is applied and hardened, your dentist will shape and contour it to create a natural appearance. They’ll also polish the veneers to enhance their smoothness and shine.
  5. Bite adjustment: Your dentist will check your bite to ensure it’s not affected by the veneers. They may make necessary adjustments to ensure proper alignment.
  6. Final touches: Any excess composite material will be removed, and your dentist will make final adjustments to ensure the veneers fit comfortably and look natural.

A great alternative to porcelain veneers

Composite veneers last about five years (sometimes more, sometimes less) and are more affordable than porcelain. This means we can offer a broader range of options and price points, so you can easily achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Not all dentists offer composite veneers; they take artistic skill as we shape them onto and around your tooth, making them shiny and new again. So, if you’re thinking about cosmetic dentistry, be sure to contact us about composite veneers!

As we age, our teeth can yellow and wear down. If it’s just the yellowing that’s bothering you, we can recommend teeth whitening treatment — however, if your teeth are worn or chipped as well, we recommend opting for veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of dental-grade ceramic that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. These veneers are designed to improve the appearance of teeth by correcting various cosmetic issues like discolouration, chips, gaps, and misalignments.

Porcelain veneers procedure

The porcelain veneers process can be broken down into a few simple steps.

  • Impressions: On the first visit, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and complete a diagnostic wax-up to produce an accurate model of your veneers.
  • Try-on appointment: You will be invited back to a second try-on appointment, where your dentist will create veneers out of tooth-coloured filling material, which will be placed onto your teeth so you can see what the final result will look like. Adjustments can be made to the shape and size at this point.
  • Teeth preparation: A small amount of enamel needs to be removed from the front surface of the teeth receiving veneers. This creates space for the veneers and ensures a natural-looking result. Local anaesthesia can be used to numb the area during this process.
  • Impressions: Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which are sent to a local laboratory to create custom-made veneers that fit your teeth perfectly. This takes approximately two weeks.
  • Veneer placement: Once your custom veneers are ready, you will be invited back to Boulton Dental for their placement. Your dentist will check the veneers’ fit, shape, and colour before permanently bonding them to your teeth.
  • Bonding: Your dentist will carefully etch the tooth surface and apply a dental adhesive to ensure a strong bond. The veneers are then placed on the teeth and positioned. A special light activates and hardens the adhesive, securing the veneers in place.
  • Final adjustments: Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure the veneers fit comfortably and look natural. This may involve trimming the veneers and refining the shape and colour to achieve a beautiful new look.

The porcelain veneers procedure requires multiple dental visits, with a temporary phase between the tooth preparation and the final placement of the veneers. However, porcelain veneers can provide a long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing solution with proper care and maintenance!

Porcelain veneers are almost as strong as your natural teeth

You might have heard that porcelain veneers aren’t as strong as your natural teeth — while that might have been true once, modern dental technology and bonding materials have debunked this theory!

It’s true that veneers don’t usually last forever, and you will need to be prepared to replace them at some point. However, veneers come with the added bonus that you won’t lose as much of your natural tooth (only around 3% or so) compared with a crown.

Plus, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, unlike natural enamel!

If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment, Bioclear is the answer. Where most traditional veneers require some tooth reshaping, Bioclear keeps that tooth reshaping to a minimum. The veneers allow the warm composite to wrap around your tooth 360 degrees and can improve the strength of your tooth

Bioclear veneers procedure

Anatomically shaped clear plastic matrices are placed under the gum and wrapped around the tooth, sealing the tooth inside the matrix. It creates a smooth and healthy filling surface around the gum (a common issue in dentistry).

The technique involves injecting the composite material around the tooth (injection over-moulding). The filling/composite is heated and injected under pressure around the tooth while the matrix holds the composite inside. There is no layering of material — it is a monolithic block of composite which is much stronger and looks much better.

The composite is light-cured, shaped, and polished, producing a glassy enamel-like shine.

It is a game changer that has allowed modern conservative dentistry to overtake the older methods. Less than a handful of dentists are trained in the Bioclear Method in Australia.

Long-lasting veneers

With proper care and attention, Bioclear can last a decade. The material is incredibly durable and can withstand usual wear and tear — in fact, patients with Bioclear veneers can eat most foods without worrying about chipping their teeth. Bioclear veneers are also simple to repair — if a chip does occur, your dentist can simply add to the composite to build up its strength again.

FAQs about dental veneers in Newcastle

  • How long do veneers last?
    With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last a number of years. On average, porcelain and Bioclear 360 veneers fail at about 2% annually. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are crucial for their longevity, including brushing twice daily, flossing, and visiting your dentist for check-ups.
    Avoid biting hard objects or using your teeth as tools, as this can damage the veneers.
  • Can veneers be whitened?
    Porcelain Veneers resist staining but cannot be whitened once in place. If you’re considering teeth whitening, it’s best to do it before getting veneers to ensure a uniform and consistent shade. It’s also important to note that composite and Bioclear veneers can stain over time.
  • Are veneers permanent?
    Veneers are considered a permanent dental treatment because a small amount of enamel is typically removed from the teeth during preparation. Once the veneers are bonded to the teeth, they cannot be removed without replacement.
  • How do veneers compare to dental crowns?
    Veneers and dental crowns are both cosmetic dental treatments, but they differ in coverage. Veneers only cover the front surface of the teeth, while dental crowns encase the entire tooth. The choice between the two will depend on the condition of your teeth and the desired outcome.
  • How much do veneers cost in NSW?
    The cost of veneers in NSW depends on the condition of your existing teeth, the type of veneers you choose, and how many teeth require veneers. Our dentists will provide a quote during your initial consultation.
