What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are one of the most popular and sought-after treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They are thin, porcelain covers that are custom-made to fit over the front teeth.
Dental veneers are renowned for their ability to address a wide range of dental imperfections, including chipped or cracked teeth, teeth tarnished by stains or discolouration, crooked or misaligned teeth, teeth worn down over time, and teeth exhibiting irregular sizes or shapes.
The Dental Veneers Process
The process of getting dental veneers usually involves two appointments. At the first appointment, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the dental lab. The lab will use these impressions to create your custom-made veneers.
At the second appointment, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. The veneers will then be bonded to your teeth using a special dental adhesive.

Frequently asked questions
Let’s address some common queries surrounding dental veneers.
The longevity of veneers can vary depending on factors such as the type of veneers used, oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental check-ups.
On average, porcelain veneers can last around 10 to 15 years or more, while composite veneers tend to have a shorter lifespan of about 5 to 7 years.
It’s important to maintain proper oral hygiene, avoid biting on hard objects, and follow your dentist’s recommendations to ensure the longevity of your veneers. Regular dental visits for check-ups and maintenance can also contribute to extending their lifespan.
The number of veneers you need depends on various factors, including your smile goals, the appearance of your existing teeth, your budget, and the recommendations of your dentist. Veneers are often placed on the front teeth that are visible when you smile, but the exact number can vary.
Some individuals opt for a single veneer to address a specific cosmetic issue, while others choose to enhance multiple teeth for a more comprehensive transformation. It’s common to place veneers on the upper front teeth, usually ranging from 2 to 8 veneers, but this can vary based on your unique needs.
During a consultation with your dentist, they will assess your oral health, discuss your desired outcomes, and provide personalised recommendations on the number of veneers that would best achieve your smile goals.
Yes, many dental practices offer the option for patients to preview their veneers before they are placed. This is typically done through a process called a “smile simulation” or “smile preview.” During this process, your dentist or dental lab may create a digital mock-up or a physical model of your teeth with the veneers in place. This allows you to see how the veneers will look on your teeth and make any necessary adjustments before the actual veneers are fabricated and applied.
It’s important to communicate your preferences and expectations with your dentist during the consultation process. They will work closely with you to ensure that the final result aligns with your desired outcome. Keep in mind that while a preview can give you a good idea of how your veneers will look, the actual appearance may vary slightly due to factors such as lighting and the translucency of the veneer material.
The process of getting veneers is generally not painful, as local anaesthesia is used to numb the area during the procedure. You might feel some minor discomfort or pressure as the dentist prepares your teeth and places the veneers, but any sensations are usually well-tolerated by patients.
However, it’s important to note that some people might experience temporary sensitivity after the procedure, particularly if a small amount of enamel was removed from the teeth to accommodate the veneers. This sensitivity is usually mild and temporary, subsiding within a few days to a week.
If you have any concerns about discomfort or pain, discussing them with your dentist beforehand can help alleviate your worries. Your dentist can explain the entire procedure, including the use of anaesthesia and any potential discomfort, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
What our patients say
“I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.
I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.”
“I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.
Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.”
“The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂”
“I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.”
“Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.”
“This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.”
“Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks”
“Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!”
