Porcelain veneers are a safe and effective method of transforming the shape, colour and size of teeth to improve the look of your smile.
It is very common for people to have imperfect teeth, either oddly shaped, discoloured, chipped, crooked, or an inappropriate sized tooth or teeth that have an unpleasant appearance.
Dental porcelain veneers solve such irregularities and create a strong, long-lasting beautiful smile. With porcelain veneers, you can achieve an immediate and breathtaking improvement to your smile in just a few comfortable appointments.
Our principal aesthetic dentist Dr Yvonne King is a world leader in cosmetic dentistry and has perfected the art of porcelain veneers for over 30 years.
If you are considering a smile makeover with dental veneers, seek the opinion of a true aesthetic dentist and undertsand all your treatment options.
Dental veneers are very thin pieces of specially shaped, custom made porcelain veneers that are cemented over the front of your teeth with little or no anaesthesia required.
In most cases, unlike crowns, dental veneers do not require us to cut back the underlying tooth itself, allowing for safe and reliable aesthetic results.
Porcelain veneers won’t stain, making them a very popular solution for those seeking a brilliant, healthy-looking smile that will last. Strong and very durable, they can be designed in shades that will brighten dark teeth and give you as bright and as natural looking smile as you desire.
With an artist’s eye for detail and over 20 years experience, aesthetic dentist Dr Yvonne King is known for her ability to create a balanced, harmonious, and functional smile that complements each patient’s goals and personality.
Our exquisite porcelain veneers and crowns are artfully crafted here in Melbourne by master ceramists using premium materials under the guidance of our principal aesthetic dentist Dr Yvonne King.
The optical brilliance and lifelike appearance of these beautiful veneers allow for spectacular natural-looking results.
The finest details, characteristics, shading and shape of each veneer is carefully and individually designed to complement and enhance each patient’s facial structure, age and personality.
FAQ: Answering All Your Dental Questions
At CLDC, we are committed to providing our patients with consistent and quality dental care. Our expert dentists have answered some of your frequently asked questions. If you still have further questions to ask, visit our contact us page or give us a call on (03) 8613 3449.
Porcelain veneers are a popular restorative dental treatment using custom-made, very thin, tooth-shaped shells that are bonded over the top of natural teeth. The dental veneer is tooth coloured and designed to cover the front surface of the tooth to improve appearance. At CLDC, we use dental veneers your teeth to change the shape, colour, size or length of your tooth.
As Melbourne’s porcelain veneer experts, CLDC offers a range of porcelain veneers starting from $850 to $3,000 per tooth to suit more patients’ needs and budgets. The cost of porcelain veneers can vary depending on the complexity of a case and also the aesthetic features a patient desires in their new smile, such as natural translucency, shading and biomimetic features.
Our most affordable porcelain veneers require minimal or no tooth preparation which can completely transform the appearance of teeth. We were one of the first dental practices in Australia to offer the revolutionary GlamSmile porcelain veneer system – a more affordable, minimal-prep dental veneer treatment. Contact us and discover how GlamSmile veneers can be a quarter of the cost of traditional veneers.
Our porcelain veneers are made from highest quality ceramic material. With the proper care and maintenance, many of our long-term patients continue to enjoy their porcelain veneers more than 20 years after treatment without issue, looking as bright and beautiful as the day they were first inserted. If you are interested in the different porcelain veneer treatment, please give us a call today to discuss your options.
Porcelain veneers are not strictly permanent — however once bonded to the teeth they can only be safely removed by a dentist. Just like natural teeth, veneers are not immune to damage or accidental damage, but with proper care they can last for decades. At CLDC, we employ a minimally-invasive approach to veneers, meaning we avoid reducing natural tooth structure as much as possible. In some cases, if teeth require significant reduction of natural tooth enamel or have considerable wear or damage prior to being veneered, then your options may limited as to whether veneers can be removed in the future and left unreplaced. In this circumstances, a dental crown may be more appropriate – which can be used in combination with veneers when designing a new smile.

Dr King and her team did amazing work, in the past I would never smile been self conscious of my teeth, the result has been life changing, I am so happy to show my teeth and smile now, initially I researched for months trying to decide what to do, I am so pleased I visited CLDC, thank you
06:21 02 Dec 20
As my front teeth have slowly been wearing away over the past 10 years I have become less comfortable showing my teeth in photos. I have only been smiling with my mouth closed. This year I decided to change this and did some research into cosmetic dentistry. There were so many positive reviews on CLDC that I made an appointment to see what they could do to improve my smile. After consulting with Dr King, I actually became excited with the possibility that something could be done. So - a few appointments later - my smile is huge! I am so much more confident to show my teeth and could not be happier with the excellent service provided. Thankyou so much CLDC!!!read more

Highly recommend. I usually go overseas for dental but can’t travel because of covid. Really happy I found this place. I travel in from a regional area and they are great appointments to fit in with my travel arrangements.

Entrusting Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry Centre with my dental care is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and Dr King's transformation of my smile has been nothing short of life-changing. Her skill and dedication has given me a confidence I never thought I would have, and achieved a cosmetic outcome that has exceeded my wildest expectations.Before becoming a patient of this clinic, I hated dentists due to childhood traumas and avoided them at all costs, but it's impossible not to like the CLDC team! They've completely changed my attitude, and I am beyond grateful for their support in a long overdue commitment to my dental health.Aside from the brilliant Dr King to whom I owe my beautiful smile, I would like to give a special mention to Deborah, Riya, Meg & Chloe for showing kindness and compassion throughout my treatments. Thank you team; you are all superstars, and I will recommend you to everyone I know.read more

My experience in choosing CLDC has been nothing less than life changing. To be fair I imagine my case was of the more challenging ones, where all other dentists I tried year after year were unable, and some, unwilling to put forward a solution. I'm grateful that I held the belief that something could be done because the team at CLDC have without a doubt exceeded my expectations.I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and dedication of the staff towards achieving outstanding results, and I am so impressed at Dr.Kings ability to perform her work, she is certainly a master of her craft and is way ahead of anybody I have tried in the past.I highly recommend this dentistry and will be forever grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting each and every person there along my journey, they are all to be commended equally.read more

A most caring and thoughtful assessment of my general dental and gum health. The team at C&L Dentistry were professional and knowledgeable in the latest, most effective treatments and procedures. It's very reassuring to know there is a dental centre around like this one. They're worth travelling to should you live some distance away.

I found that Dr Cara Fitt, was very caring and understanding at my appointments. She took time to explain all the procedures so that I could make an informed decision and made sure I felt comfortable at all times. I highly recommend her as a dentist.

Amazing team, and dentist, I previously had issues with my last dentist who ruined my front teeth of which I ended up with crowns, Dr King helped to rectify my smile and made me feel absolutely amazing for my daughters wedding. Thank you to the team at CLDC.
03:22 19 Oct 20
I genuinely got over my fear of the dentist thanks to the awesome dentists at Cosmetic and Laser dentistry. After putting it off for so long, and simple dealing with the pain, I called, booked, arrived and left with no fuss what soever. The in-between was a breeze, and the staff were so incredibly friendly and understanding towards my fears, and reassuring to a point that put me closer to ease than I honestly could have hoped. My fear is gone, as is the pain. Could never thank them enough.
08:47 16 Oct 20
From start to finish, the CLDC team were incredibly welcoming. I had a consultation with DR King, and she is clearly passionate about her work. She described the range of options available and what suited my budget. My second visit, and everything was complete. I am so happy with my smile and how natural it all looks! This gave me the confidence I needed to smile from ear to ear, take photos with my teeth showing, and just have overall confidence. If you’ve thought about it for quite some time like I did, I highly recommend going for a consultation.I cannot thank you all enough. I’ve already recommended CLDC to my friends and family who are amazed at the change! Can’t wait to see you all soon ! - Suziread more

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Houman. He spent two hours doing a complex root canal and I was very comfortable the entire time. He is extremely skilled, professional and caring and I am so thankful to him for saving my tooth. I was also impressed with the gentle manner in which Dr. Houman asked his Dental nurse, Dinara, questions. What a great learning environment. Thank you CLDC

I had the best experience I’ve ever had with any dentist at CLDC. I opted for composite veneers and had them done by Dr Yvonne King.The first person I spoke to when I rang to book a consultation was Meg the treatment coordinator, and right from the start I was warmly welcomed. She is a lovely person, happy, bubbly person and is a pleasure to deal with.Dr Yvonne king did an amazing job of my teeth and completely changed my smile without shaving down any of my natural teeth, she really is amazing at what she does and you will not be disappointed. I had a slight issue afterwards due to my bite and slight chipping but the guys at CLDC were able to fit me in to get it fixed straight away with no hassle at all.Lastly, Dr Daniel maydelman also did a check up for me and this resulted in me needing a couple of fillings and some fissure seals. He is extremely thorough, gentle and really kind. I would highly recommend him as a dentist and will be coming here for my bi annual check ups from now on, despite living 40 mins away.Thank you guys!!read more

Thanks to all at CLDC for making my recent dental treatment a breeze. It was truly a positive experience. Having not visited a dentist for 3 years due to endless negative dental disasters in the preceding years, I was hopeful that CLDC could, and would, deliver what their website claims. Well deliver they did. The staff understood my initial apprehension; listened to what I needed to say, and were very supportive. Their professionalism, skills, and knowledge, helped restore my faith and trust in dentistry once again. Yvonne's skill in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry achieved an outstanding result, way above and beyond anything I'd imagined. I can finally give a full smile with my newly refreshed gleaming teeth! Feeling so happy, grateful, and confident! Anyone reading this review, and not sure, well just do it, you can't go wrong. Cheers Monikaread more

Very impressed1. Price is very fair2. Service is very thorough eg the clean lasted 45 minutes3. Communication is excellent . All of my concerns were listened4. I was given great advice and tools to deal with a gum issue that was cheap and effective5. Great way of delivering news instead of regular doom and gloom guilt tripping of dentistry

My experience at CLDC has been incredible! My teeth are straight now after having invisalign for only a year. I’ve always been told that invisalign wasnt suitable for my very crowded teeth, and that i would need traditional braces. That was not the case with cldc - i didnt even need any extractions!!Not only that, i used to go to a dentist every few months to get fillings. But i havent needed a single filling in the past year because the lovely team at Cldc have actually taught me how to properly care for my teeth and gums ever since my first consultation. My teeth & gums have never been this healthy in my life! Every single one of their staff members are super friendly and have made my fear of dentists disappear too. Thank you all so much! :)read more

Today I bumped into someone that I hadn't seen for years. I was told I look amazing! I am 61. For 58 years I was embarrassed to smile because of my teeth and covered my mouth when I spoke. Two and a half years ago Dr King and staff gave me a smile. Now when I bump into friends, I give them a great big grin and they know just how happy and more confident I am. Your generosity and kindness will never be forgotten.Thank you so much Yvonne and girls for making my life a happier one :)
