A composite veneer or bonding a tooth is a procedure whereby our dentist uses composite (white filling material) to reshape and restore the front teeth.  Although a porcelain veneer is the best option for stained, discoloured, heavily restored, or malposed teeth, a composite veneer is a viable alternative.

Bonding does require removal of some tooth structure to allow for the proper shaping of the final result.  The dentist first decides on the proper shade (color). The dentist then carefully prepares the teeth and places layers of composite on the tooth surface to recreate the natural aesthetic contours of the teeth. The composite is further shaped and finally polished to match the adjacent teeth.
