Permanent discoloration, cracked, chipped or worn teeth can be corrected by the dentists at Always Smiles Dental Surgery near Cabramatta and Liverpool using porcelain veneers.

Veneers can also be made of composite filling material by the dentists at Always Smiles Dental Surgery in Canley Vale, although porcelain is known to be a much superior alternative for veneers. Porcelain is very strong and durable, vibrant and much more natural looking.
