Composite Veneers before & after

We have transformed thousands of smiles and improved the confidence of countless patients.

What is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is applied and sculpted freehand to the edges of the teeth to fill in chips, cracks and correct tooth shape.  Composite bonding is a great treatment option for those who are happy with their natural teeth, however would like minor changes and tweaks to their teeth. It is especially popular for patients who have finished their orthodontic treatment and would like to change the shape of their teeth.

The composite is bonded with the natural tooth material which creates a more aesthetic smile. Due to only the edges being filled during composite bonding, the material shade needs to be matched to your natural tooth shade. We take time when choosing the shade and colour matching with precision.

Once the composite is bonded it cannot be whitened, so it is recommended for patients to have their teeth whitened before treatment and to maintain their white smile with the take home whitening kit.

What are Composite Veneers?

Similarly to composite bonding, the same material is bonded however it is applied to the entire tooth surface to create a veneer. This allows for greater flexibility in the decision of your tooth shade and shape.

Composite veneers can achieve a great aesthetic result, however are less durable or longer lasting than porcelain veneers. Problems that composite veneers can improve are: 

  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Spaced out teeth
  • Shorter or different shaped teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Chips and cracks in the teeth

Composite veneers are a less invasive and cheaper alternative in cosmetic dentistry.

The treatment and chair time is shorter, allowing patients to see their results quicker.

Digital Smile Design

After your cosmetic consultation, a 2D digital design of your smile will be created. Our clinic uses the latest groundbreaking technology bringing together a smile trial preview. This helps both the patient and dentist quickly visualise their planned new smile by creating a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s requirements and price budget.

Testing out your new smile

You will be able to test out your new smile by proceeding with our 3D mockup options. A digital oral scan will be taken of your teeth to proceed with a smile mockup of the tooth shade and shape you choose so you can visualise and feel your new smile. This will give you the opportunity to suggest any alterations or additions you may like before proceeding with the treatment.

Testimonials

Patient Stories

We love our patients, and we are happy to hear that they love us just as much!

Katelyn G

Thank you so much for having me in today Dr James! The team was amazing, they made feel sooo comfortable and my teeth are normal super sensitive so honestly a 10/10 experience. Be sure to check them out!!

Matthew S

I have never been a huge fan of going to the dentist but James made me feel incredibly comfortable throughout the whole procedure. It was relaxed and I never felt rushed. I am glad I have found a dentist I can connect with and I'll definitely be coming back for my check-ups.

Chantelle I

So thrilled with my experience with Dr James. He is a perfectionist and made sure I was completely happy with my new veneers. I broke my 2 front teeth when I was 8yrs and no one has ever been able to make them natural until now. They are just perfect and I have so much more confidence. The staff are all so lovely and caring, I honestly couldn’t recommend these guys enough!

Anthony K

Had an amazing experience at this dentistry. The staff were very friendly and Dr James was polite, detailed with explaining what was happening and made me feel very comfortable, regardless of my fear of visiting the dentist. I will definitely be using this place as my local dentist from now on.

Tim W

I have been to quite a few dental clinics in my lifetime and can admit to being fussy at times, however at last I can finally say ive found a clinic that I would be more than happy to go back too. My experience with Dr James B was phenomenal, I was treated with care, respect and professionalism. Ive been to plenty of dentists before and its simply been a chore for both me and them (I wont name names), giving no real reason to go back to the same dentist. Dr James has been the first dentist to show an interest in me as a patient and as a person, taking me through every step of the plan and procedure I had to undergo.

Ari

My son is a little anxious boy and was really scared to go to the dentist. Dr T was amazing with him and took special care to keep him comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr T to anyone who is nervous about seeing a dentist. The best experience.

Aneta R

What an experience. Met Dr Philip Hand to see my child, what an amazing person, been through so many doctors that would just be like you had a bad luck, for the condition of your child, nobody cares. Without even explaining of my daughter condition, he offered his help and handful of best contacts in Melbourne to help me and my girl. He is not only the best dentist he has the hands to help others. Thank you God for meeting a Doctor like Philip Hand, my self Aneta and Aurora will be forever grateful

Jessica G

Amazing cosmetic dental practice, couldn't ask for more! Dream smile and lips achieved

Anthony J

The team at Marriot and Hand were simply amazing. Dr Hand was very knowledgeable and explained everything about the treatments and why it was necessary. Karen was warm and open to all sorts of questions. I never felt rushed. As someone that has not been to a dentist for many years, it was time to face the music - I found them extraordinary professional and caring. Their service was so good I felt like I was catching up for a coffee with a friend rather than a visit to a dentist office. I'll look forward to my next appointment

Nushan Z

Fantastic Staff! Experienced Hygienist and Dentist. Great location with private carparking.

Jass F

After my MCHN suspected the cause of my son's breastfeeding issues was a tongue and upper lip tie, I went to see Dr. Philip Hand. He was one of the more reasonably priced dentists for this procedure. He was very friendly and put me at ease right away. He took the time to examine my son thoroughly and had a great manner with him. He obviously does his job properly and is not just out to get money, as he told me that neither tie was significant enough to warrant cutting. He noticed tightness around his facial muscles, though, and referred me to an oesteopath who has managed to solve the issue. This dentist knows his stuff, is friendly, and if it hadn't been for him, my son would not be feeding properly. Highly recommend him.
