Composite Veneers

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers, also known as Composite bonding, are applied directly onto a patients teeth, as opposed to being made in a laboratory and cemented on like porcelain veneers. A Composite veneer is effective in changing the colour, shape, and size of a tooth. To achieve excellent results, Composite veneers are technically and artistically very demanding. Patients should always ensure that the provider has enough experience in doing this treatment. One of the best ways to assess this is by looking at photos of their previous work.

When are Composite veneers used?

Composite veneers are suitable for a variety of situations, such as:

Damaged teeth – Often, composite bonding is the cheapest and easiest way to repair a damaged tooth. At Pearl Dental Clinic, we have a good record of achieving an aesthetically pleasing result without the restoration being noticeable.

Stained/Crooked teeth – If teeth whitening has been unsuccessful Composite bonding can be used to cover undesirable stains, white patches, and discoulouration of the teeth.

Composite veneers can also be used to reduce or fully correct the misalignment of crooked teeth. However, this method is not always the best choice. They can be most suitable in situations where there is a high risk of veneer fracture, as Composites are repairable directly in the mouth. This is one of the biggest advantages of Composite veneers over any other form of veneers.

Closing gaps – Composite veneers can be the ideal choice of treatment. The difficulty in these situations is matching the shade and making the composite veneer unnoticeable. A tooth gap closure requires no tooth removal.

What are the alternatives to Composite veneers?

Composite veneers are mostly monochromatic, and aesthetically they are not as good as Porcelain veneers. Therefore they are not always the best option for a full smile makeover. Different types of porcelain veneers are available, such as highly aesthetic, durable, ultra-thin or more cost-effective options.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Composite & Porcelain veneers

  1. Aesthetically, porcelain veneers are much more predictable than Composite veneers.
  2. Porcelain veneers last on average 7 – 10 years, and do not stain. Composite Veneers last on average around 5 years and may stain.
  3. Porcelain veneers are more wear resistant than Composite veneers and are not usually monochromatic.
  4. A trial smile is available when undergoing porcelain and composite veneer treatment. This allows the patient to have a more direct input in choosing the shape and shade of the veneers.
  5. Usually, with Composite veneers there is no need for tooth shaving. Porcelain veneers usually require tooth shaving.
  6. Only one visit is required to complete Composite veneers. Porcelain veneers usually require a number of visits.
  7. Composite veneers cost between £195-£295 per tooth and porcelain veneers cost between £495-£695 per tooth.
