Composite veneers

Composite veneers are an alternative to porcelain veneers. They are more cost effective and less invasive than porcelain veneers.

Instead of being produced in a lab from a model of your teeth, composite veneers are produced by placing layers of various shades of tooth coloured resin directly to the tooth surface and then setting or “curing” the resin.

Like porcelain veneers they can dramatically improve a crooked, worn or gappy smile.



A Composite Veneer Can Fix…


Crooked Teeth

In most instances, orthodontic straightening is the most ideal treatment for crooked teeth. However, many people do not wish to go through this process, and this is where veneers excel. This is particularly so if the teeth are also misshapen or dark in colour.

Worn Teeth

Worn teeth result in a departure from a youthful appearance where the teeth are all more rounded and their edges do not form a completely straight line.

Thin Enamel

Over time, acidic erosion or harsh tooth brushing habits can lead to the loss of enamel on the outer surface of the tooth. This will result in the teeth being dull in lustre and darkened. Composite veneers will return the natural beauty to these teeth and should protect them from further structural loss.

Gappy Teeth

This problem is not always able to be corrected with orthodontics as sometimes the teeth develop to be smaller than the space available. Composite veneers offer the most ideal solution to fill such gaps.

Heavily Discoloured Teeth

Some teeth are resistant to bleaching and the only way to fix the problem is to cover over the darkened surfaces. Sometimes, the dis-colouration is so dark that a thin veneer will not mask the underlying colour. A crown may be the only solution in this instance.
