There can be a lot of confusion about the cost and process involved with porcelain veneers in Australia. The cost of porcelain veneers can vary exponentially from practice to practice. In Sydney, the pricing of porcelain veneers depends on a few factors.
The first is the porcelain material selected by a cosmetic dentist. Some are naturally less costly than others, and using cheaper porcelain materials may impact the outcome of a patient’s smile transformation. At Cosmetique, we utilise the highest-quality porcelain for our veneers and layering techniques.
The price of veneers is also dependent on the design and creation process. Cosmetic dentists may select to design and create their veneers or crowns through a process that is heavily dependent on technology and dental machines. Relying on technology has its place, however, for anterior (or front-facing) veneers, the expertise of a cosmetic dentist and a dental ceramist who specialises in creating beautiful and natural smiles can be the difference between a perfect result. Our dental ceramists all have a minimum of a decade of experience creating naturally beautiful smiles.
Some patients may consider going overseas for their smile transformations, which can seem appealing due to the reduced cost. We always advise patients to complete porcelain restorations or veneers in Australia, as the training, expertise and outcomes are generally to a much higher standard.
Most patients who have smile transformations overseas also find the preparation or shaving of the teeth is more extreme, which can cause long-term implications. At Cosmetique, we pride ourselves on limiting the preparation of the teeth and leaving as much of the natural enamel untouched as possible.
