Composite veneers differ from porcelain veneers as your teeth may require a small amount of reshaping before they can be fitted. However, it is possible to complete your composite veneer treatment in just one visit and they are significantly cheaper than porcelain veneers.
As with all veneer procedures a consultation with one of our experienced dentists is essential in order to assess the current state of your dental health and decide on the best treatment to suit your individual needs.
The procedure involves applying the composite material onto your teeth and then sculpting it to achieve the desired shape and finish to achieve your perfect smile. You will be involved in the process every step of the way and once you are happy with the results the veneers will be bonded onto your teeth using a specialist adhesive. In some cases a small amount of reshaping may be required to get the best results, but you will be consulted on this and informed of every detail.

Composite veneers can last between 2 and 5 years depending on the composite material used. There are different materials with varying prices which will be discussed at your free consultation. Regular brushing and flossing will help your veneers last much longer.
