Smile for Life cosmetic practice has been creating smiles with porcelain veneers for over 30 years.

Aesthetics is defined as the nature and appreciation of beauty.

Its a talent that is not shared equally amongst people (especially dentists) but is vital in producing the smile that you want to have.  Any dentist looking to improve his or her smile would seek out a dentist with a talent for aesthetics to create their new smile. They would look for a dentist who looks the part in the way they dress, conduct themselves and fit out their practice.

The right practice would have artworks on the walls and designer furniture in the waiting areas.

If a dentist could call him/herself a ‘Cosmetic Dentist’ then that title would accurately fit the dentists we employ at Smile For Life. Unfortunately Australia won’t add it to the list of titles dentists can use to describe themselves. This is unlike most other countries which happily recognise the title of ‘Cosmetic Dentist’

Our dentists have been assisting cosmetic clients for over thirty years.

We resolve their dental issues with an aesthetically focused approach to produce beautiful dental outcomes.

Porcelain veneers are best described as a ‘contact lens thin’ sheet of porcelain that is fused to the surface of the tooth, Its similar to how a false fingernail is fused to the underlining nail bed.

A bit of trivia : ‘Its thought that a dentist was responsible for first coming up with the technique for applying false nails’

In producing our Porcelain veneers we use a range of materials and techniques and hand pick our artists from Australia’s best to produce the highest quality of veneers for our patient’s teeth.

Over the years we started with composite resin and progressed to state of the art Porcelain materials.

Having seen the variety of materials, and how they perform with time in a range of different mouths – we are well placed to make the right decisions for you and avoid costly mistakes.

With advances in technology we were able to improve the strength and appearance of porcelain so as to create porcelain translucency with previously unheard of strength.  Over time, technology and the efficient systems in use at Smile For Life has lead to the cost of porcelain veneers coming down. At Smile For Life we can making make porcelain veneers more affordable than ever before.

The process starts with a thorough ‘getting to know you and your requirements and expectations’. Your personality and insights are taken into account in forming the design of your porcelain veneers.

We take the time to include you so that you know exactly what to expect

Once we have explained the plan from start to finish and established a payment plan we will be ready to begin.

The preparation of the teeth can be done in one sitting and the process completed one to two weeks later depending on your requirements. We then photograph the results and arrange for follow up appointments to make sure that you are completely satisfied.

Whether you need a completely new smile or you just have slight damage to your front (inscisor) teeth then porcelain veneers are the answer.
