What are composite veneers and composite bonding?

Composite veneers and composite bonding refer to a popular cosmetic dental procedure that can transform your smile.

Composite veneers involve coating the front surface of your existing teeth with a tooth-coloured composite material. This is why it is sometimes called composite bonding because the composite resin material is bonded to the tooth surface creating a veneer-like effect.

Composite veneers are a great option for those looking to improve the appearance of their teeth by correcting issues such as discolouration, chipping or gaps. These veneers can be custom-made to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.

The benefits of composite veneers

Composite veneers offer numerous advantages. They are durable, stain-resistant and require minimal tooth preparation. Our skilled dentists will ensure that you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of without compromising the health of your existing teeth.

The benefits of composite veneers and composite bonding extend beyond just aesthetic improvements. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no removal of tooth structure compared to other alternatives like porcelain veneers. This means less discomfort during treatment and a quicker recovery time.

Both composite bonding and porcelain veneers can achieve that glowing white smile you’re used to seeing on the red carpet. But aside from being great aesthetically, composite resin can also be used to repair or enhance the shape, size or colour of your teeth. Whether you have misshapen, cracked or chipped teeth, gaps between them, or even minor tooth decay, composite bonding can provide a quick and affordable solution.

Are there any downsides to composite veneers?

While composite veneers may not last as long as porcelain veneers, the convenience they bring is unmatched. With a little love and care, composite veneers can stick around for 4 to 8 years before needing to be replaced.

Porcelain veneers can last 15+ years but do come with a considerably higher price tag. Dr Joe Oliver’s patients have seen their veneers last for more than 25 years.

The composite resin used in composite veneers may also be more prone to staining and discolouration over time. The composite material isn’t as robust as porcelain veneers, but should it become damaged, it can easily be repaired without needing to replace the entire veneer (which is the case with porcelain veneers).

Composite veneers procedure

Composite bonding is a hassle and pain-free dental procedure that does not require any preparation work on your teeth. It involves applying thin layers of soft bonding material to create the composite veneer, which will gradually harden and set in place.

One of the key advantages of composite veneers is their ability to be completed in a single appointment. This means that you can achieve the desired outcome without having to schedule multiple visits as you would with porcelain veneers, saving you time and ensuring a convenient treatment process.

What is composite resin?

Composite veneers refer to a resin material made from a combination of plastic and glass elements to create a flexible resin.

When a resin is applied to the front side of the teeth, it creates a natural-looking appearance and texture. This material used in the process is actually quite similar to the one used for dental fillings and is perfectly safe.

Teeth-bonding resin is a commonly used material because of its unique malleability. It can be easily attached to the teeth with great precision, allowing for accurate customisation to achieve the desired shape.

How long do composite veneers last?

With proper care and maintenance, composite bonding can have a lifespan of up to 8 years. Taking good care of your oral health and practising good hygiene habits can also help ensure that composite veneers last for at least 4 years.

If you have dental bonding, it’s important to be mindful of the foods you consume to prevent staining. Avoiding known tooth-staining foods can help maintain the appearance of your teeth. Also, attending regular dental checkups is crucial for extending the lifespan of composite veneers.

Are composite veneers better than porcelain veneers?

There are a few factors to consider when weighing up whether composite veneers or porcelain veneers are the better option for you.

The right treatment might depend on your budget and how long you’d like your dental veneers to last. While composite veneers are typically the more affordable option, they may not last as long as porcelain veneers and therefore you may end up spending money to have a composite veneer repaired or replaced.
