Want to improve your smile easily? 5 benefits of dental veneers with Northern Beaches Dental

Are you looking for a way to improve your smile but don’t want adult braces? Are your teeth too sensitive for whitening? Luckily, there is an answer!


As cosmetic dentistry has increased in popularity in recent years, along with advancements in techniques, it seems there is no dental issue that it cannot resolve. People who have lost their natural teeth are singing the praises of procedures like dental implants and adults who have misaligned smiles cannot stop talking about invisible braces.

But where does that leave people who have slight misalignments and sensitive teeth? Well they could look at the alternative, veneers!

At Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, our team is highly experienced in fitting veneers and can help you decide if they are the solution for you. Usually made from either porcelain or composite, our dentist in Mackay will attach the veneers to the front of your tooth, like a false nail, and ensure that it stays firmly in place with dental cement.

But what are the other benefits to our dentist in Mackay fitting you with dental veneers? Read on to find out!

Decrease in sensitivity

An often overlooked benefit of veneers is that they decrease the sensitivity of any tooth they are attached to.

As most dental sensitivity is caused by microscopic holes in the enamel that allow access to the nerve of the tooth, once a veneer is fitted to these areas, it prevents further sensitivity. And as veneers are long lasting, they are a perfect solution for long-term sensitivity relief.

Look natural

Another benefit of our dentist in Mackay fitting you with dental veneers? They look completely natural.

Many people who wear dentures often feel worried that they do not look natural and may draw stares from strangers. As our team will be able to colour match your natural teeth with the composite, your smile will look completely natural.

Instant whitening

Want to improve on the shade of your teeth? Veneers can do that too!

If you want to whiten your teeth in an instant, our dental team can create veneers that can be up to 16 shades whiter than your natural teeth.

As soon as they are fitted, you will be left with a whiter and healthier looking smile.

Hides minor cosmetic imperfections

If your teeth are chipped, cracked or have staining that makes them look darker, the application of veneers can hide all of these imperfections and more.

Another cosmetic benefit of veneers is that they can conceal minor gaps, create better symmetry in the mouth and help even out the appearance of teeth affected by excessive spacing or crowding. They really are amazing!

No special aftercare!

Unlike many dental cosmetic procedures, veneers require no specialised aftercare.

Once fitted, you can walk out of our surgery and go about your day as you usually would. Just ensure that you keep up a good level of oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing, attend check-ups with our team twice a year and your new veneers could last up to 20 years! Great stuff!
