Porcelain veneers cost roughly between $2500 to $3500 per tooth depending on the complexity of treatment. Exact quotes can only be established through a consultation appointment with Dr Dee.

We also offer Smile Makeover packages of 6 to 12 porcelain veneers. Package details can be obtained by contacting us directly.

Picasso Porcelain Veneers® are Vogue Dental Studios' very own brand of porcelain veneers, personally developed by Dr. Dee. They are hand-layered, individually created and personalised to each and every patient. Using a variety of different porcelains, depending on what’s best suited to you, Dr Dee works exclusively with our master ceramist to architect the design of these veneers.

Picasso Ultra Hybrid Veneers™️ are exclusive to Vogue Dental Studios and are made with perfect blend of Ceramic and Composite materials. These are digitally designed by Dr. Tom or Dr. Dee and hand finished by our Master Ceramists in the same way as our Picasso Porcelain Veneers ™️.

Yes. We offer both composite and porcelain crowns and bridges. Like our veneers, we aim to replicate function while achieving a natural aesthetic result. As always, the best way to determine what is most suitable for you is to start with a consultation.

When done correctly, Porcelain Veneers should last 10-15+ years. Vogue Dental Studios recommend looking after your oral hygiene by booking in regular check up and clean appointments, limiting sugary foods and beverages, brush and flossing twice daily, drinking plenty of water and wearing a night time splint if you grind your teeth. The longevity of your veneers will depend on how you look after them.

The colour of your Picasso Porcelain Veneers™️ is always left up to you. Dr Dee will make recommendations and trial different shades on your appointments. At the end of the day, colour will always be the choice of the patient. We will design the shapes, edges, translucency and style to suit your facial features and you will choose your colour.

Invisalign FAQs

The length of Invisalign treatment is dependent on the severity of each individual patient’s orthodontic issues. Treatment may vary from anywhere between six months to two years with an average treatment taking around 12 to 14 months.

Aligners should be worn all day except when eating, brushing and flossing. We recommend for your aligners to be worn at least 22 hours a day. The more you wear it, the better your results.

You can eat and drink whatever you desire - just remember to remove your aligners first. The only beverage you can drink with aligners on is water. And it is important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to reinserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

The results do vary from patient to patient as everyone absorbs product differently. Professional whitening generally can last from 6 months to 2 years. On average, patients whiten in the chair 1-2 times per year, and/or use the take home kit every 3-4 months to maintain the shade.

You can eat and drink 60 minutes after your in-chair whitening. However, for the next 48 hours please take care to steer clear of staining food and beverages. This may include red wine, coffee, tea, dark sauces, and dark meats. Please also avoid smoking.

Some patients do experience some sensitivity during or after whitening treatments. We recommend sensitive toothpaste to help with this discomfort. Any sensitivity usually dissipates within 12-24 hours. If sensitivity persists beyond 72 hours, please contact a qualified health professional.

The process of teeth whitening is not painful but it can cause sensitivity. Patients may experience minor discomfort during the procedure and often report of sensitivity immediately after the treatment. We recommend brushing your teeth with sensitive toothpaste 1-2 weeks prior to your whitening appointment and after/as you whiten to ease the sensitivity. You will be given a relief gel after your appointment that will immediately ease any reactive sections. Sensitivity is expected to subside after approximately 12-24 hours of treatment. If sensitivity persists beyond 72 hours, please contact a qualified health professional.

When administered by a qualified dentist, teeth whitening will not damage your teeth. Global consumer protection organisations agree that the proper use of whitening products is safe after consultation and approval by a qualified dentist. Safety is our first concern. This is why patients must come in for a consultation before any treatment.

Read report by the American Dental Association

Teeth whitening is extremely safe, especially when completed at a qualified dentistry studio. There is abundant evidence showing that teeth whitening is a safe procedure. When bleaching in chair at Vogue Dental Studios, hydrogen peroxide would only come in contact with your enamel.

Hydrogen peroxide is deemed safe when administered and applied by an oral health professional. It becomes unsafe when the product is misused/overused or against the recommendation of your dentist.

Hydrogen peroxide/carbamide peroxide is very commonly used as bleaching agents. The colour of your natural tooth is de-pigmented and thus whitened by using the active ingredients in a variation of concentrations as recommended after an oral examination with the senior dentist. The product is applied directly to your teeth, either in the clinic during your in-chair whitening appointment or in your customised trays that you use to whiten at home.

Unfortunately, to maintain the results, whitening is not a treatment you do just once – extrinsic factors do play a part in why our teeth develop stains. Because of this, we recommend continuing and maintaining your whitening treatments either at home or at a qualified dental practice. The best way to prolong the life of your new brighter smile is by improving your overall dental hygiene through consistent brushing, flossing and rinsing. Upholding your six-monthly dental clean and check-ups is essential to conserving your pearly whites (and making sure they stay white!). We recommend in chair whitening 1-2 times per year to cosmetically enhance the shade of your teeth, just as you would maintain your hair, nails or lashes, teeth need maintenance too.

Less is definitely more! We will show you a step by step guide on how to use your personalized take home whitening kit effectively at your appointment. The tiniest amount should be distributed as using more doesn’t mean better results – it only means wasted bleach and potential burnt gums!

At Vogue Dental Studios, we do not recommended any whitening treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding as not enough research has been put into the side effects of doing so.

Implants FAQs

The titanium metal is completely safe and is the same material used in bone surgery.

Each person reacts and heals differently after dental implant surgery. Depending on your personal threshold and discomfort, our patients commonly are able to return to work the day after the implant procedure. We will thoroughly discourse this prior to your appointment.

Dental implants are suitable for most people with missing teeth. How your body reacts to the implant is dependent on a multitude of factors:

  • Your existing bone tissue and its health

  • Existing periodontal disease

  • Non-smoking (or at least quit during treatment)

  • Health of existing gum and teeth

  • Oral hygiene

During the treatment process, you will receive local anaesthesia. There should be minimal pain and we will do our best to make you feel at ease. You may feel some slight discomfort when the anaesthesia wears off but we generally prescribe medication to alleviate the soreness. We will always follow up and stay in contact to ensure you on track with the treatment process and healing well.
