Through the process of dental bonding, our team can alter the appearance of your teeth and transform your smile into one that you’re proud to show off to the world.

Composite Veneers Treatment In Melbourne
Composite veneers are created from tooth-coloured resin, which is the same kind of material utilised for dental bonding. As with any dental treatment, composite veneers aren’t suitable for everyone, and therefore, it’s important to speak to our professional team of dentists before any work begins.
However, if eligible for composite veneers treatment in Melbourne, it can be extremely beneficial to the overall look and feel of your teeth.
Composite veneers are perfect for covering up any imperfections you might have in your set of teeth and allowing you to show off a bright, perfect smile. Imperfections can include crooked, misshapen, chipped, stained, or even discoloured teeth.
However, resin veneers cover only part of the tooth – making it different from traditional crowns which cover the entirety. Therefore, if your teeth are in relatively good shape and you just want to change their appearance, composite veneers could be the perfect option for you.
Composite Veneers Melbourne
Bonded Composite or Resin Veneers are sculpted by hand and bonded to the enamel of your teeth by one of our cosmetic dentists. Bonded veneers in our Melbourne dental practice create an immediate result while being minimally invasive. The procedure usually costs less and requires less wait time. However, bonded resin and composite veneers do not last as long as porcelain veneers, and are not stain resistant.
Our aim is to present you with all the options available, and run through the various options, costs and payment options. Everyone’s needs and situations are different, and we are here to work with you.
There are two types of resin veneers that are performed when you team up with us at The Smile Designer. While both will transform the look of your teeth, they differ mainly in the application process. Both options will utilise the same material – resin.
Direct Composite Bonding
Direct composite bonding is made from a composite resin material and applied directly to your teeth. The application process is considered as minimally invasive as it doesn’t take long for one of our dentists at The Smile Designer to prepare your teeth for the application of the direct composite bonding. This technique is used to enhance the shape of your existing teeth as minimally as possible.
Composite Veneers with Facially Driven Digital Smile Design
With composite veneers, the application process is different. While your teeth are prepped in the same way that they would be for porcelain veneers, the resin veneers themselves are digitally designed to ideal proportions before we even touch your teeth.
In other words, they are designed ‘indirectly’ outside of the mouth with our master technicians. Photos and Scans are taken of your teeth, and a discussion is had with you about the shapes and design of your new smile.
Indirect stents are then made from digitally printed models of your new smile and are utilised to help in the application and bonding of these. The end results are composite resin veneers that are in ideal proportions to what we have pre-designed making them better looking and longer-lasting, yet more expensive than regular direct composite bonding.

Composite bonding or dental bonding is a form of adhesive dentistry where our team applies a tooth-coloured resin to a broken, crooked or wrongly spaced tooth to correct its position, size or shape.
Dental bonding is perfect for:
- Slight chips in the tooth
- Slightly shorter teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Spaced out teeth
- Discoloured teeth
At The Smile Designer, we specialise in dental bonding Melbourne. The process is quick and easy, often lasting between thirty minutes to one house to complete. However, it’s important to check for suitability, and therefore, we recommend that you talk to our team of dentists at The Smile Designer before choosing any dental bonding procedure.
There is a range of benefits associated with choosing composite veneers as teeth, including:
- Lower cost compared to porcelain veneers
- Shorter application process if you choose direct composite veneers as teeth
- Can help you overcome and cover up an array of aesthetic issues, including misshapen teeth, discolouration, and much more
- If choosing direct composite veneers as teeth, then treatment can be completed in just a single visit
- Any damage to the veneers can be repaired, this includes chips and cracks
- Less enamel is removed from your natural teeth when applying the composite veneers teeth – meaning the structure remains intact

Composite Veneers FAQ
We’ve answered some of your most frequently asked questions about composite veneers.
Composite veneers are durable and can last on average from 4-7 years. After this time period, you may need a replacement set of veneers. However, it’s important to extend the life of your composite veneers by taking care of them properly. This includes having a regular routine where you brush with a non-abrasive toothpaste and avoid chewing on ice or any other hard objects. We also suggest steering clear of drinks such as coffee or tea, which may stain your veneers. The length of time that your veneers last is dependent on how well you take care of them. A night guard is essential to protect your Composite Veneers from nocturnal habits like clenching and grinding, which we all do in our sleep.
Although there’s no way to whiten your composite veneers, there are many things you can do to improve the look of them. Professional cleaning, such as what we do at The Smile Designer can remove any surface stains that have been formed through eating and drinking. It’s important to visit us every six months so that we can perform this routine clean and check to see how your composite veneers are looking. If they seem to be in poor condition, we may recommend replacing them.
The cost of composite veneers is fully dependent on the individual case. It depends on how many teeth are needing composite veneers and in what condition your teeth are in. It also depends on which type of composite veneers you’re after, if it is just direct bonding or a whole new appearance you are after- as well as the technique used- and all this will make a significant impact on the pricing. For more information on the cost of composite veneers, contact our team today, and we’ll discuss pricing with you through a one on one consultation session.
Per tooth, composite veneers could cost about $400-$800. The cost of resin veneers will vary depending on how many veneers you need and individual circumstances. Composite veneers are traditionally inexpensive compared to other materials like porcelain, however, they can still be pricey. At The Smile Designer, we believe in lowering our prices to an affordable rate so that everyone has the opportunity to transform the look of their teeth and attain high-quality composite veneers.
