Composite Bonding


"By far the best dental practice I have been to, from the reception staff to the hygienist and especially my Dentist Dr Mahesh Patel. I have always been a very nervous patient but he just has a way of really calming my nerves and really takes the time to put me at ease before he starts the treatment..."

If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.

A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail.

Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.



Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.

A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.

Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable.

If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.



  • Why would you have veneers?

  • Veneers improve the appearance of your teeth with minimal to no preparation to the existing tooth. They can make a dramatic difference to your smile. They can close gaps, align your smile, rebuild worn teeth and whiten teeth where suitable.

  • Choosing Composite or Porcelain Veneers

  • When discussing veneers you may be given multiple options in regards to materials, the most common options are composite or porcelain.

  • Your dentist will discuss your specific requirements to work out which options suits you best.

  • What Are The Advantages of Composite Veneers?

  • There are advantages to both of these aesthetic treatments, and it is always best to talk to your private dentist about any procedure you are considering.

  • Cost

  • Perhaps the main advantage of Composite Veneers over Porcelain is their cost. Porcelain Veneers can sometimes work out to be more expensive than composite. However, the cost of veneers does vary, and it is best to discuss this with your dentist so you know exactly what you will receive for your money.

  • Same day treatment

  • Composite veneers can be placed on the same day of treatment. These veneers are directly sculptured on to your teeth as opposed to made in a lab as with Porcelain veneers. It is then set with UV light, and then shaped and polished to resemble natural teeth.

  • Less invasive

  • With composite veneers there is minimal, if any prep. This means your teeth below could remain as they were. Many a time no local anaesthetic is required for this treatment.

  • They can be removed and replaced

  • The other advantage is that composite veneers have an element of reversibility. With these types of veneers, there is minimal / no prep (cutting) work required on your teeth, so this means that the underlying teeth remain the same and unaffected. They can easily be repaired in the surgery often on the same day.
