    Veneers

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! 

When are composite veneers very effective? 

Composite veneers are used in situations where small changes need to be made: 

  • To improve discoloured or chipped teeth
  • To reduce the appearance of minor misalignments of your teeth
  • To improve your appearance and smile
  • To close unwanted gaps between teeth 

Some situations when it is a major concern 

  • You have tooth decay or gum disease.
  • Your tooth structure has weakened due to large fillings
  • You suffer from underbite, overbite or crooked teeth
  • Frequent teeth grinding may cause some damage to the veneer 

Benefits of composite bonding 

  • It is non-invasive, no tooth drilling or injections in most cases, which makes the veneers a popular choice.
  • The veneers do not necessarily need to cover all the tooth surfaces. This makes them a good choice for reducing or closing gaps between teeth.
  • Composite veneers can be easily reversed compared to porcelain veneers since none of your healthy teeth has been drilled.
  • Treatment is usually completed in a single visit since composite is directly bonded onto the teeth 

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.
