As part of his expanded service, Dr. Dave Richards provides patients with a durable, long-lasting solution for enhancing the appearance of their teeth. They are ultra-thin sheath-like prosthetics that are bonded to the front-facing side of the patient's teeth to hide imperfections. Unlike implant-supported crowns, they are a minimally invasive option.

Dr. Richards offers two types of veneers: composite and porcelain veneers. These materials, as he notes, are biocompatible and designed to imitate the natural look and feel of the patient's teeth. They are a suitable option for those with sensitive teeth or severely discoloured teeth that defy professional whitening.

Compared to porcelain veneers, which take at least two sessions to install, composite veneers can be made and finished in one visit to the dentist. They are less expensive and do not require prior preparation. However, the former option is much more durable, lasting up to twenty years with proper oral hygiene habits. Moreover, porcelain veneers are also stain-resistant and provide a more genuine appearance because of their translucent quality, the dentist explains.

Patients can get one veneer at the clinic to restore a broken tooth, though Dr. Richards recommends getting at least six to eight veneers for a uniform, well-aligned smile.

While veneers can be offered as a standalone treatment, Dr. Dave Richards can combine them with other procedures, like a full mouth rebuild, teeth whitening, 3D CEREC crowns, and more, for a complete smile makeover.

A satisfied patient said, "I couldn't be happier with the work Dr. Dave Richards has done on my teeth. My veneers and implants look amazing. Dr. Richards is friendly and professional, and he goes out of his way to explain the details of all treatments. I highly recommend this dentist."

Dr. Richards specialises in minimally invasive dentistry, an approach that focuses on preserving patients' natural teeth. His practice areas include, but are not limited to, cosmetic, orthodontic, and implant dentistry. Alongside patients in Auckland, he serves those in the surrounding areas, including St Heliers, Mission Bay, and Glen Innes.
