The Uses, Benefits and Costs of Composite Veneers

Dental veneers have the purpose to enhance the overall appearance of the teeth by changing their colour and shape. While some types of veneers are designed to enhance the beauty of your smile, others have a restorative function and are used for fixing issues such as chipped or cracked teeth. The ones that have a restorative purpose are know as composite dental veneers, which are some of the best solutions for broken or damaged teeth due to dental problems like cavities or gum infection. Before we describe the features and benefits of composite veneers, let’s first see what exactly is a dental veneer? Well, it can be described as a small porcelain shell that is deigned to fit the shape and size of your tooth, thus hiding any imperfections, such as discolouration, chipping or gaps between the teeth. The best thing about veneers is their resistance to stains, which means they won’t get damaged like natural teeth do when exposed to staining foods and drinks, such as red wine, coffee, green tea, sweets, etc.


Composite bonding is considered as one of the easiest, yet most effective among all the different dental procedures. It’s minimally invasive and is performed by an experienced and skilled dental practitioner. The process of bonding includes applying a resin material called composite to the front surface of the teeth, which is then shaped to the desired form and finish to perfectly match your natural teeth. The composite veneers cost ranges from $400 to $600 for a single veneer and the bounding procedure is usually completed in one dental visit. But, depending on the condition of your teeth multiple visits may be required. Composite bonding is not painful and is often done without the use of an anaesthetic, considering the fact that only a small portion of the tooth is removed.

The composite veneers cost, which is very affordable when compared to other cosmetic dental treatments and the effective results they provide make them a popular solution for all kinds of dental conditions. Composite veneers are most commonly used for the following dental problems.


Chipped teeth– if your teeth have small of medium sized chips then the ideal solution to preserve their health and restore the beauty of your smile is composite bonding. The veneers can effectively restore the natural shape of your teeth and enhancing your chewing ability.

Stained teeth– white patches or dark stains on teeth not only look unappealing, but over time can damage the structure of the tooth. Often these stains can’t be treated with teeth whitening alone and in this case composite veneers offer a practical and affordable solution.

Small gaps between teeth– gaps between the front teeth or other teeth can easily ruin the appearance of your smile and allow for food to easily get inside the gaps, which can lead to more serious dental problems like gum infection and cavities. Composite veneers are here once again to save both your dental health and the beauty of your smile. Since they can easily be shaped, they’re great for closing those annoying gaps between your teeth.
