A flawless and brilliant smile is an asset in today’s competitive world. If you admire the perfect smiles of celebrities, chances are you are admiring the beauty of modern cosmetic dentistry with veneers.
You can enhance teeth with these tiny works of art.
Dental veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic options available in our Christchurch dental practice because they solve many aesthetic concerns at once and can improve one tooth or a full arch of teeth.
- Chipped or worn teeth
- Slight gaps between teeth
- Mild misalignment
- Irregular teeth
We invite you to get in touch to arrange an appointment where we will discuss what you love, and what you would like to improve, about your smile.
Veneers – A Single Treatment Solution
Veneers are super-thin restorations that look like natural teeth. Typically, veneers come in two types – composite bonded and porcelain.
Composite bonded veneers are more opaque in appearance and provide full coverage to a discoloured tooth or teeth. Composite veneers do not require the use of a dental lab and can often be completed in one appointment.
Porcelain veneers provide a more translucent result. Created by our trusted dental lab, porcelain veneers will yield natural-looking results and similar durability as your enamel. Minimal prep of the teeth is required, and porcelain veneers can light up your smile, helping you make a great first impression, whether you’re looking for a new job or you are out for a social gathering.
Dental Veneer Treatment in Christchurch
Precise planning will ensure that your veneers not only look stunning but also fit and function comfortably. Both Dr Richard Beale and Dr Louisa Cullen will examine your bite, jaw function and smile line before getting started.
Your input is valuable. We want to know if you want your teeth to be whiter or straighter or if you just prefer a full smile makeover for your own self-confidence. Once we understand your ideal smile, we will begin to create it.

Teeth Whitening and Veneers
Your veneers will not whiten like your natural teeth, so if you are going for a brighter look, whitening your teeth first will give you better results. We have both in-house and take-home teeth whitening options available.
Caring for Your Veneers
Veneers are strong, and with the proper care, can last decades or even a lifetime. Excellent oral hygiene and regular check-ups and cleans are the best way to keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
If you grind your teeth, your veneers might need a little extra protection by wearing a nightguard to keep them from chipping or coming off.
