Composite Veneers/Bonding

Composite Veneers/Bonding

We pride ourselves in creating beautiful confident smiles. Our treatments allow our Patients to rediscover themselves in ways that go beyond a beautiful smile. Probably the best-kept secret in dentistry is a simple non-invasive, inexpensive procedure known as composite bonding. If you are concerned about slight imperfections such as a chipped tooth, gapped teeth, staining or colour then composite bonding could be the solution to create the beautiful smile you’re looking for.


Composite bonding can be done by one of our General Dentists or our Prosthodontist Dr. Darrelle Power. It is a cosmetic dental treatment using composite resin to shape and mould your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter, more youthful smile. It can be used to significantly change the appearance of chipped teeth, gapped teeth and staining in both teeth and fillings.

This treatment starts with meeting our Prosthodontist Dr. Darrelle Power who will assess your suitability for treatment and discuss your treatment goals. Composite bonding isn’t for everyone - if your smile is crooked as a result of an over or underbite this treatment will not serve to correct it. Dr Power will discuss other available treatment options including orthodontics. Bonding is primarily for those who seek a cosmetic solution for teeth that are otherwise healthy.


Using a shade guide Dr. Power will closely match to the colour of your teeth to select the correct shade. She will then slightly etch the surface of the tooth to allow the composite to affix. Using a conditioning liquid, she will coat the top surface to bond the composite to your tooth. The putty-like resin will then be molded and smoothed until the desired shape is achieved. The material is hardened using ultraviolet light. Finally, Dr Power will do the finishing touches, trimming, shaping and polishing until it matches the sheen and lustre of your teeth before revealing your new smile.


Bonding may not last as long as porcelain veneers but can offer a quick and relatively inexpensive alternative. One of the considerations of bonding is that it does not resist stains as well as crowns or veneers and does not respond to whitening treatments so you need to follow a healthy oral hygiene routine to keep your bonding looking bright and beautiful. At Pembroke Dental not only can you expect exceptional care throughout your journey, but the comfort in knowing your bespoke treatment is performed by a leading cosmetic dental professional.


Dental bonding does take some artistic skill for optimal cosmetic results so it is reassuring to know that Dr. Power has extensive training and experience in cosmetic procedures giving you complete confidence that you are in the very best hands. From your very first visit with us we will do everything to ensure your experience is comfortable, informative and stress-free. A smile makeover is as much about confidence as it is about the appearance. At Pembroke Dental we have the treatment solution for every concern, big and small from Custom Made Dentures to Implant Retained Dentures, Implants, Crowns and Veneers.
