Composite Veneers and Bonding

Veneers vs Bonding


Veneers vs. Bonding?

Composite dental bonding is a minimally-invasive, quick and easy way to get the smile you have always dreamed of. It is cost-effective and the process is reversible, they are also great for repairing chipped teeth or cracks in the teeth.

Porcelain veneers are the best choice for those that would like a more permanent solution for their beautiful smile, as they last longer and are generally more durable and stain-resistant. Porcelain can also look more natural than composite bonding.

What you need to know

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells (a little like false finger nails but for teeth), that are custom made to fit directly over your teeth to give you your ideal smile makeover, with your desired shape teeth.

Porcelain veneers are used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel, helping you to feel confident with your perfect teeth.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is glued to your existing teeth and then shaped into a desirable appearance. They are often used where chipping or discolouration of natural teeth occurred or in cases of minor misalignments of teeth, to give the appearance of teeth whitening and teeth straightening for the perfect sparkling smile.

How long do they last?

Depending on the quality of oral hygiene and the keeping up of regular dental check ups, composite bonding can last anywhere from 5 to 7 years Porcelain veneers generally last between 10 and 15 years.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to fit dental veneers?

The treatment time varies from patient to patient, depending on how many veneers they have fitted. At Dental House Pinner, our veneers can usually be fitted in two to three treatments.

Who needs dental veneers?

Dental veneers offer patients a natural and durable solution for damaged teeth and can improve the shape and appearance of their mouth and create a better bite.
They are suitable for anyone with relatively good gum health and teeth who wants to disguise discoloured teeth, cover or protect chipped or worn teeth, ease overcrowding or close up any gaps in their teeth.
At Dental House Pinner, we recommend veneers be bonded to the front surface of a patient’s existing teeth to create the appearance of natural teeth, particularly front teeth.

What does dental veneer treatment involve?

In the case of porcelain veneers, which more closely resemble a natural tooth and are more stain-resistant, providing a more durable, long-lasting solution, patients start treatment with a thorough consultation during which an intra-oral scan and X-rays are taken with our dentist.
The dentist will begin the cosmetic procedure with tooth preparation by removing a thin layer of the tooth and the laboratory then designs the porcelain veneers into a precise shape. Then the veneer will be bonded to the tooth with a small amount of dental adhesive.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?

Veneers that are done properly by an experienced dentist can look very natural and enhance your smile. Veneers are a comfortable fit and preserve a lot of your natural tooth surface and structure while enhancing your smile and providing a long-lasting restoration solution.

Does veneer bonding hurt?

During a veneer preparation you will receive a local anaesthetic. Fortunately, as soon as anaesthesia takes effect, you shouldn’t feel discomfort during the procedure.
