Veneers and Cosmetic Bonding

Dental veneers are a thin shell-like restoration made up of porcelain or ceramic, which are custom-shaped and bonded to the surface of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are produced in a laboratory and then applied to the front of the tooth surface. Dental veneers can be applied to individual or multiple teeth and are custom-made and colour matched to your tooth shape
and colour. Porcelain and ceramic are longer-lasting than composite and do cost more than composite bonding. If maintained well, porcelain veneers can last for up to 10 years.
Composite bonding is a dental procedure which involves minimal preparation of the tooth surface which an application of resin composite which is placed in layers and cured under a UV light. Composite adheres to teeth without the need for drilling, making it a less invasive treatment.
The process involves the use of an etchant gel to prepare the surface of the tooth for bonding. Your dentist will then carefully mould the resin material by hand, sculpting it into shape. The resin used will be colour-matched to your teeth so that you are left with a natural look.
