4 Common Misconceptions about Porcelain Veneers


You need your teeth shaved down into stumps

This is a myth. At Dental & Skin Clinic we are super conservative with any shaping of the teeth and it is as minimal as possible.


All porcelain veneers are the same from clinic to clinic

Not all porcelain veneers are equal. There are certainly differences in quality in porcelain from clinic to clinic and the pricing is reflected in the quality. Our pricing is middle-ranged. We aren’t the cheapest because that would mean sacrificing on the quality (this is typical when the veneers are made overseas and in bulk). There are many places that are much more expensive than ours. Our porcelain veneers are the best quality but without the super expensive price tag.


Porcelain veneers are not affordable

We want to make your dream smile accessible to everyone with affordable and flexible INTEREST-FREE payment plans to let you get that beautiful smile straight away. Pay up to $116 per week (or $231 per fortnight) to get your dream smile through our Buy Now Pay Later option.


Porcelain veneers cost more than composite veneers

Short-term the price of porcelain veneers is more than the price of composite veneers. However composite veneers require a lot more maintenance and need to get replaced every 2-3 years on average. This equates to spending more on your smile in the long-term. Whereas porcelain veneers lasts on average 15-20 years so it’s a smarter investment in your smile in the long hall.

What is the difference between composite veneers and porcelain veneers?

The difference between the 2 types of veneers lies in their maintenance, longevity and cosmetic appearance. 

Why We Like Porcelain Veneers Over Composite Veneers?

Porcelain veneers last a lot longer, they require minimal maintenance and they look the most life-like and stunning.
