How Veneers Can Transform Your Smile … instantly

A happy, confident smile is often the most memorable feature of an individual's appearance. If you’ve met someone with dental imperfections or in contrast, impeccable teeth, chances are you noticed them almost instantly!


Many patients are unhappy with the shape, colour or alignment of their teeth

Veneers can transform your entire smile, giving you a full set of beautiful teeth all at once.

Even a slight crookedness of your teeth or gaps can be fixed if an orthodontic treatment is not for you. Because every case is different, your dentist in GlenHuntly Melbourne will evaluate your teeth and determine the best treatment to help you achieve your smile goals.


How Dental Veneers Work

The way veneers improve your smile is by covering imperfections on your teeth. Thin slivers of porcelain are customized just for your smile and bonded directly onto your teeth. Veneers blend flawlessly with your teeth, and they don't change the way you eat, chew, brush, or floss.

Are Veneers Right for Me?

If you have concerns or aspects of your smile you'd like to change; the first step is to meet with your cosmetic dentist in GlenHuntly dental clinic to discuss your options. For over 20 years, Dr Steven Serebnitski has been helping patients reach their smile goals.

He works with patients to establish a treatment plan that meets their needs without breaking their budgets. We invite your call to our dental clinic if you're interested in learning more about cosmetic dentistry in Melbourne.

In your consultation, Dr. Serebnitski will prepare a comprehensive treatment plan and estimate costs.  This will differ for every patient as everyone’s needs are unique.

Composite vs porcelain veneers- which one is better?



  • The advantages of composite veneers are that they can be made in one appointment and you won’t feel any pain and there won’t be any drilling. Therefore this is a very gentle option and can still give you the results that you wish for. The downside of composite veneers is that they chip easier and they usually need more maintenance than porcelain veneers, which shortens their lifespan to 5-7 years. But great news you don’t have to spend a fortune on them. That means if you want to try veneers or you want to have the perfect smile for a big event like your wedding day they are a great option.

    Composite veneers could cost you anywhere from $250 to $1,200 per tooth. The total price will depend on how many teeth are being covered and whether they are just for cosmetic purposes or if the dental work is necessary. 


  • Traditional porcelain veneers on the other hand will last you much longer. Usually between 10-15 years and no prep veneers about 5-7 years.  Porcelain is a very hard material which has very nice optic properties. This and their life span are the biggest differences compared to composite veneers. For porcelain veneers the surface of your teeth needs to be prepared. We use the latest technology which allows us to prepare minimal amounts. Our step by step process will allow you to see the final veneers before we attach them and be part of the whole process to make sure you are satisfied with the look of your new smile.  An experienced lab technician will be needed to make nice looking, long lasting veneers. We are very fortunate to be working with one, who does outstanding veneers.
    Veneers are not usually covered by insurance, but many dentists offer discounts for multiple teeth. The price can vary from $1,200 to $2,000 per tooth on average.
