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.

- Slight chips to the tooth.
- Slightly shorter teeth.

Composite Veneers before - after
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.
