Composite Veneers Melbourne

What Are Composite Veneers or Composite Bonding?

Composite Veneers are another option to Porcelain Veneers that can enhance your smile. Composite Veneers can be a more cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers that are less invasive and versatile. However, they may not be a good solution for patients who put a lot of pressure and force on their teeth since Composite Veneers are not as robust as porcelain veneers and can be more susceptible to chipping, cracking, and staining over time.

Composite Veneers a constructed with a tooth-coloured resin, the same material that is used for white fillings. They are handcrafted and bonded onto your existing teeth resulting in an improved aesthetic. Typically completed in a single visit, composite veneers are a great solution to enhancing your smile for those who have disproportionate teeth, discolouration, small gaps, improving the shape and slightly misaligned teeth.

Our Dentists at The Smile Designer take pride and have excellent attention to detail as well as having a conservative approach. They can help you decide between composite or porcelain veneers. Our goal is to help design and achieve the smile of your dreams with minimally invasive treatment options whilst achieving the best possible outcome, long-lasting results and optimal care for our patients.

Am I Suitable for Composite Veneers?

Our Dentists at The Smile Designer are all about attention to detail, so before commencing any cosmetic treatment, we want to ensure your oral health is optimal. A thorough assessment and treatment plan, if necessary, will be made to ensure any underlying problems are addressed before getting your composite veneers.

This includes severely crooked teeth, tooth decay and fillings that are necessary. Once these issues are resolved, you can move on to improving the aesthetics of your smile and explore your options for the best possible outcome. Composite veneers are a good solution for minor tooth problems that may include:

  • Slight chips to the tooth.
  • Slightly shorter teeth.
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Slightly spaced-out gapped teeth
  • Discoloured Teeth

Composite veneers- your simple guide

Composite Veneers Process

Checking if you are the right candidate:

This depends on the amount of tooth structure that needs to be changed or replaced. If your dental health is more serious, then more advanced dentistry may be required.

For successful bonding, we need to ensure there is no tooth decay and teeth and gums are healthy to ensure there will be no limitation to the success of the bonding.

Take advantage of our New Patient Check up and Clean offer for $249. All records will be taken and we can discuss options in more detail. Alternatively, we offer Free after hours Smile Makeover Consultations,

Where our dentists will briefly go through some of your options and estimated costs. A New Patient exam will still be required prior to starting your cosmetic journey.

Selecting shade:

Selecting the right shade is essential. For the best results, our dentist may require you to get your Teeth whitened as this will allow for a more harmonious finish for when you maintain your teeth whitening.

Your dentist will pick the right shade to ensure the composite veneers fit in well with the rest of your teeth. The dentist will work with you here and ensure that you pick the shade and are happy with it before deciding and confirming the shade.

Digital Smile Design

Depending on the complexity of the case, a digital smile design is created to help achieve the ideal shape of your new composite veneers.

An injection moulding technique is sometimes used as well. Costs for this stage will be discussed at your initial appointment.

Preparation of your Teeth

The tooth surface at this appointment is carefully prepared by cleaning and abrading the surface; this technique makes the surface a bit rougher so that the bonding material adheres well to the surface of your teeth.

A conditioning adhesive liquid is then applied before the resin is sculpted and moulded into its correct shape. Finally, you will see an ultraviolent blue light used over the resin; this helps solidify the material.

The composite is then polished and trimmed to give you the desired smile. It is also important to note that tea, coffee, cigarettes, wine, and other staining substances can easily stain resin material.

So, it is highly recommended that you avoid such foods and drinks that can cause staining for the first 48 hours after the procedure

Wearing your Night Splint

In most cases, a night splint will be recommended to protect your new composite veneers or bonding to help reduce fractures.

Veneers solve multiple dental problems at once

One of the most significant advantages of the veneer’s treatment is that it can treat multiple dental concerns at once. If patients have several problems, for example, discolouration and uneven, oddly shaped teeth, as well as perhaps a small gap between the two front teeth, veneers will be able to transform the appearance of the whole smile. Combining multiple treatments over an extended series of appointments is unnecessary; veneers make getting a new smile a fast and easy process.
