My New Composite Veneers
Composite Veneer Experts
Composite veneers are an affordable and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry option designed to beautify your smile. You can have brighter, whiter, and straighter teeth with minimal or no damage to your existing tooth structure. Composite veneers can be coloured matched to your existing teeth or we can create whiter teeth for you whilst still maintaining a natural realistic look and feel.
Composite Veneers are designed to cover the surface of your teeth in order to correct their appearance, shape, colour and position. Suitable for adults, teenagers, as well as even younger patients, the composite veneer process is more economical than for porcelain veneers, and the whole procedure is normally entirely reversible.
Dr William is able to correct your cosmetic concerns so that you can smile with confidence. Composite veneers effectively correct dental defects including chips, misaligned teeth and discolourations. We offer a 2 year guarantee on all our composite veneers.
Composite veneers will effectively correct
- Permanently stained or discoloured teeth
- Uneven, crooked teeth
- Broken, worn or chipped teeth
- Diastemas (spaces between teeth)
- Misshaped or poorly formed teeth
It all begins with a 3D visualisation…
You will be able to visualise what your veneers will look like prior to proceeding with the procedure. The visualisation procedure doesn’t damage your teeth at all and works to help us custom design your composite veneers with your own personal input, creating composite veneers that are ideally crafted to your exact specifications.

Dr William creates composite veneers that utilise the multi award winning IPS Empress direct system from Germany, which combines the aesthetics of ceramics with high surface gloss for a lasting and beautiful result (many dentists use inferior cheaper composites for veneers- these cheaper composites with poor shade choices are designed for fillings and not for composite veneers). Whereas most dentists use a single shade of composite, Dr William uses multiple pulp, dentine and enamel shades to create a chameleon effect so as to mimic the appearance of real teeth.
Traditional veneers maintain the original shape of your teeth but make them whiter, however Dr william offers Extended (3 D) Veneers which change the shape, dimensions and colour of your teeth. This three-dimensional change in shape is unique to each individual dentist and patient.
In this sense, the veneers provided by Dr William are tailor made and unique to each individual patient. Unlike many other dentists who recreate a similar shape to your original set of teeth, we’ll go through your options and design the perfect smile for you; the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

The Composite Veneer Procedure
Dr William Cosmetic Dentist, will assess your smile and take the necessary photographs and laser scans of your teeth. At this visit a 3D visualisation is often created for you, and photographs are taken of it. We use this service to help you visualise your new smile and show you the outstanding results we can help you achieve. We give you and indication of cost and time frames for completion. This visit is usually 45 minutes in duration.
You then go home or to work, and consider whether composite veneers are suitable for you.
When you have decided to proceed with composite veneers, you make a booking for a visit lasting 3 to 4 hours or so, where we create your new composite veneers using the template we established with your 3D visualisation . You leave our practice with your new composite veneers permanently bonded into place. You are now ready to smile with confidence!
There are further short visits for minor adjustments and for final photographs of your new composite veneers and your new smile. After that it is just regular check ups and cleaning as recommended by Dr William, your cosmetic dentist.
Dr William has been placing composite veneers for over 25 years and has completed thousands of successful composite veneer cases. You can be assured your composite veneers will be hand crafted to the highest standards.
Fees begin at $395 for simple transformations (composite bonding tips of teeth only) with respect to colour and to extend veneers into different 3D shapes up to $1295 per tooth when the colour, shape,gums and all the dimensions of a tooth require modification. Most veneers are priced at $795 per tooth and come with a 2 year warranty. What this means, is that if you break a veneer, Dr William will see you the same day to replace it at no charge (of course during normal business days and business hours only and if he is in Sydney and able to work). If we are open, we will see you and fix your problem.
