A composite veneer is a thin layer of a resin material that is bonded to the surface of a tooth chairside. Composite veneers non-invasively improve the aesthetics of a smile and protect the teeth from damage. You can have composite veneers fitted in a single visit and involves little or no pain during the treatment. We use the latest techniques and materials to artistically bond the composite to match your shade of teeth. To top it up we do not need to drill away any of your teeth or use any injections!
Composite veneers are used in situations where small changes need to be made:

Benefits of composite bonding
Composite veneers are more affordable compared to porcelain veneers.
The procedure of composite veneers
During your consultation, your dentist will perform a trial smile. This will allow you to visualise the end result of your cosmetic needs within minutes. In other words, this is a way to ‘try before you buy’. When you are happy with the shape, form and colour we then replicate this trial smile to be permanent.
How long composite veneers last
Composite veneers usually last from 3 to 7 years; however, some may last for more than 10 years. With the maintenance of good oral health and hygiene, your composite veneers can last a long time.
Can composite veneers break easily?
No, these veneers do not break easily but may chip for several reasons such as biting or chewing very hard objects, clenching and grinding teeth. If they break, these veneers can be repaired very easily compared to porcelain veneers.
