Porcelain veneers represent one of the most exciting new areas in cosmetic dentistry. Whether for a single tooth or even a whole new smile such as with our "Smile Makeovers" and "Smile Lifts", they can transform average looking teeth into glamorous, beautiful smiles. These thin facades of porcelain are very popular for people with irregular, chipped, or discoloured teeth. This process of applying porcelain veneers is less invasive than many dental procedure.

Porcelain laminate veneers usually require a minimal amount of tooth preparation, over which a thin (usually less than 1mm) veneer of porcelain is bonded to the tooth. This procedure usually requires just two visits and is very conservative. Single tooth reconstruction or a whole new smile can be achieved in this fashion
We like our patients to be aware of the tremendous changes taking place in dentistry today. As well as the traditional porcelain dental veneers, there are new approaches and systems currently available in dentistry today that offer a new approach to dental veneers, making them more affordable than ever before.
There are limitations to these procedures, however, and Dr Wells has had experience with some of these newer techniques. Working with such techniques, and unhappy with some of the limitations that he felt could be overcome, prompted Dr Wells to developed his very own dental veneer system, called SassySmiles, in collaboration with a leading world-class dental laboratory that happens to be located right here in Penrith We are proud to say that SassySmiles overcomes a major limitation experienced in the other systems available, namely that we are able to achieve a much more life-like appearance. Whilst not suitable for use in all cases, SassySmiles offers a more affordable and life-like dental veneer option that many of our patients have opted to use.
A great new smile can be achieved in just a few short visits, thanks to new high strength, cosmetic porcelain veneer systems. The results speak for themselves and the restorations are deceptively strong and resilient. Results can be completely individualised to give a naturally bright smile or even a "Hollywood" blockbuster!
