Composite veneers, also known as ‘same day veneers’ or immediate veneers, are a less invasive way to create your perfect smile.
These bonded composite veneers are a great alternative to enhancing your smile without breaking your budget and your teeth (quite literally).
It’s a thin moulding that is carefully sculpted, bonded, and hardened all in one sitting. As a non-invasive procedure, it doesn’t harm or damage the underlying teeth.
Composite veneers are also cost-effective as they generally are less expensive compared to porcelain veneers.
Why Composite Veneers?
The demand for Dental Veneers has been growing rapidly in the UK, and Essex in particular.
We are more used to dazzling smiles and brought up on American TV with wall to wall veneers and cosmetic smiles. We can see that having great teeth and a wide smile is attractive, and everybody wants to look their best on Zoom.
Solving Problems or Looking Good
You don’t need a problem to consider having a new, whiter, straighter smile based on veneers. Looking good makes you smile, everyone smiles back and suddenly the world is a happier place.
But, if you’re someone who has worn, stained, chipped, or damaged teeth then this could be a great way to both fix those problems and a fabulous way to feel better about yourself.
You can walk out of the dental clinic with a brand new smile in just a single appointment!
Cosmetic Dental Veneer Description
This is a different procedure to a dental crown, dental bridge, or dental fillings which, although using similar materials, are more functional than aesthetic treatments.
Composite Veneers is a relatively new procedure that has been adopted by dentists all around the world who are interested in conserving the underlying tooth structure and keeping the patient’s mouth healthy.
Benefits of Composite Veneers
- Immediate Veneers can be done in one visit, after the initial consultation
- We discuss the colour required and level of brightness is to your taste
- Immediate Veneers can be repaired easily if chipped – consider the reversibility!
- Preparation of the tooth is quicker, and fitting is done at same visit (40mins/tooth rather than 90mins/tooth)
- There is no lab fee for preparation, which reduces our costs, and we pass this on
- Much less expensive, less invasive and quicker than traditional Veneers:
Once the decision has been made, why wait? Composite veneers are fitted in a single visit, whilst avoiding the ‘irreversible’ nature of conventional smile-design/ceramic material.
And lastly, Immediate Veneers don’t have the ‘fragility’ of ceramic or porcelain veneers, so if one breaks or chips then it is easily repaired: the whole veneer does not have to be replaced.
These are not ‘temporary’ veneers, they are designed to last.

How to choose
Immediate veneers are a great option to achieving that perfect smile that everybody wants.
The only downside to composite veneers is that the ‘lustre’ and surface finish is less translucent than the ceramic veneers and they will stain more easily (so patients might choose to have them polished annually). But the balance of the appearance of straighter whiter and even shaped teeth, the lower cost and the speed of treatment, explains why composites are winning.
Finally, another element of choice is the dentist has to be very good at crafting the shaping and polishing!
This last point is important. Immediate veneers rely on a level of artistic skill to work with material, whilst Porcelain Veneers are easier for the dentist, having them made by technicians in the lab, with digital technology.
