Composite bonding and composite veneers are hugely popular and can transform a patient’s smile in just one sitting.
Like porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be used to help improve the appearance of uneven, chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, they are made of composite resin and are bonded to the teeth.
Composite veneers are shaped by hand and cover the whole tooth – which is why we always say it’s down to the skill of the dentist in making sure the shape, colour and angles are spot on. The process is not dissimilar to composite bonding, and very rarely involves any drilling.
Composite bonding is focused on the edges of the teeth and can be a more subtle transformation. If you have teeth that need to be longer or uneven edges, but are generally happy with everything else, then composite bonding is ideal for you.
Composite veneers cover the whole tooth surface – if you have some teeth that are set back and need ‘building out’ then composite veneers can achieve this. They can also be a solution to correct minor misalignment.
Both treatments can be completed in one sitting.
This depends on how many teeth are being treated, but it can be complete in one sitting after a consultation.
Unless your teeth are misaligned, composite veneers are applied without affecting your natural teeth. During your consultation, our dentists will talk you through the process and what you can expect.
