    I was a dental assistant for over 45 years working with specialists and general practices. Two of the biggest mistakes I saw constantly in providing this type of work was only veneering from 3-3 (eye tooth to eye tooth), and making them too white. When the patient smiled it was obvious what work was done. All teeth showing in the wide smile should be treated and match the colour of the natural bottom teeth if they are not getting treated as well (which could include bleaching as well). I have no patience for poorly advised dentistry. You Sir are spot on with your advice and approach and should be lecturing to general dentists (if not already).

      Can I ask you a question seems you will give and honest answer and have seen everything that goes on? It’s not about look for me but as I have aged and only have 18 teeth I need to preserve what I have and now finding I’m watching what I eat so what’s your view on composite v porcelain? I have severe needle phobia so I will get gas for what ever but which would be a better option for strength? Thanks 😊

      I wish there were harsher penalties for predatory dentists advising unessasary aggressive procedures. The physical damage that can be inflicted can last years. After one of these, I was terrified to go to another dentist for years.

      Yes exactly true, all teeth must be the same colour, having only the front teeth done white makes it even worst, better don’t have them done at all, a good dentist must tell you this, if he doesn’t, means he works only for money

    I have two bonded teeth in front that were completed in 1995. I maintain them with 2x/year cleanings and polishing and they still look amazing. I would be hesitant to get porcelain when they are very expensive and require grinding down of virgin, healthy teeth. Bonding (composite) quality has also improved during the 26 years after I got them, and I would reconsider having the procedure repeated on other teeth as well. Good video 👍

      @Louise Corrans No sanding. Get a second opinion from a seasoned dentist who does a lot of bonding. I was told back in the day that bonding didn’t present as real looking, or wasn’t as durable as porcelain veneers. That proved false.

      My dentist said he needed to roughen the teeth for bonding...and that they only last 5 years. We're your teeth sanded a bit? I am amazed they lasted so well!

      Most dentists don't want to do bonding because they don't make as much money. If they have Cerec in their office the machine does all the work and they can get the machine paid off. They also don't use as good materials for bonding that they used in back 1995.

      I want bonding. I got ten top done that lasted about 15 years and I can’t find any dentist in my town or anywhere in the south to do cosmetic bonding. I loved the bonding because it was done in one quick setting and cost $1200 for ten teeth.

    I have worked in the Dental Industry for 30 years and have 4 Upper Anterior Composite Veneers which are 18 years old and have not discoloured or chipped at all, and look as good as they did the day I got them. If done properly but a great clinician and with a good quality composite, there is no reason why they can’t last a long time…..do not agree with the 3 - 5 years lifespan that is suggested here. Preserving healthy tooth structure was important to me, and I did not want to trim my teeth at all, so adding to my teeth was a better treatment option. And when they need replacing, only the composite is removed and more added….where as with porcelain veneers, the teeth will need to be trimmed a little more….not a lot, but still some. I’m definitely team Composite Veneers…..go get them 👍🏽

      I don’t agree that because one works in a dental surgery that they get better treatment. This persons composite veneers have lasted because she has the knowledge of how to look after them. Working in the industry you see so much neglect even after you give comprehensive instruction of what you can and can’t do on e you get them, but the general public sometimes just lets that slide. As an example; you shouldn’t be using veneered front teeth to meat off bones, chew pens, open hair pins, drink and eat high staining foods or hard biscuits etc. Not that you can’t but but probably shouldn’t as this can weaken the perimeter of the veneer. On a more clinical note it also depends on the surface area covered by the veneer. I could go on and on. But I am sure your bored by now. Even though I’m retired I am still passionate about good dentistry and care. Happy smiling .

    There are many options to restore or change a shape of "social teeth". Composite veneer with minimal or no-drilling that is made of nanohybrid composite material (it is also called Enamel, discovered by an Italian dentist) reflects light in the same way as our natural enamel, its cheaper than porcelain/ceramic or zirconia veeners. A good dentist will polish them properly, give some final touches to make them look naturally. They are more resistant to staining than microhybrid composites, they do not or almost dont shrink so they look nicely longer...and finally stronger than older generation composites like Gradia, filtek etc. The best (but mainy for posterior teeth - molars and second premolars -5th tooth) monolithic, solid zirconia crowns bonded on a healthy roots. Can last even from quater of century to lifetime (if the remaining, filed tooth is healthy (nutrtion is THE MOST important)

    Very helpful explanation! Thank you. I'm considering composite veneers aka dental bonding to correct small teeth - I also have a very large gap in between my left canine & first premolar (can fit an whole tooth in between in due to previous improper ortho. treatment along with small teeth). So it is a complex case.
    Crowns are aggressive. Veneers are extremely expensive. Composite isn't an optimal [permanent] material, though it's much more cost effective - though, it's a great temporary fix. So, it's likely what I feel I'd like to go for, but I'm very much so considering. Veneers would likely mean trimming; which isn't good either in the long haul.

      @Harriett Campbell Aw wow, thank you very much for reaching out & sharing your experience :) I’ve had bonded permanent back retainers placed when I was younger & had most of it removed (lol composite bonded resin is definitely a strong material too when well-done & let to dry but they rarely admit that). I was meaning to get these two Lumineers/no-prep veneers but am still trying to sort it out its expenses but hopefully choosing that route; I greatly appreciate your feedback though, that’s great!

      Hi I recently had my front 8 top teeth done with composite veneers and they were £10,800. I live in UK. I'm very pleased with the look of them as my teeth were horrible. I saved for YEARS to get them done. I'm very happy with the look but now I'm kinda wishing I had gone abroad as they will only last 5-8 years... I'm going to have to save like crazy all my life as they'll need constant replacing!!! I wish I had gone for porcelain as they won't stain and they'll last longer.

    I have been trying to find someone like you in Brisbane who is able to help me and it’s a minefield trying to find reviews to get a dentist who is good at colour matching dental bonding to the tooth. I have been to 4 dentists the past 2 weeks all of which have told me different things and each saying the other dentist is basically incorrect, it’s disheartening and confusing. I just want a nice white even coloured smile and can’t afford to continue seeing dentists, particularly given I’m a pensioner (full time carer) and consults are eating up my savings that took me years to save to get some dental work so I can freely smile again. If anyone here sees this can they recommend a good dentist in Brissy who knows how to remove dental bonding from gum to mid tooth and match new bonding to my white teeth below so it looks seamless and without a noticeable join line to due to colour disparity? I’m so desperate as I get one shot at it for many years so don’t want this line again I got years ago from a dentist., please help.

    You explained this so well. This week I had composite bonding to close a very small gap between my front teeth ion an otherwise perfect smile. I had it done before about 12 years ago and it lasted 10 years before eventually coming off. My teeth underneath were fine so I waited a few years before having it redone. It was a very minor gap. So I finally decided to have it redone and had it done by another doctor at the same practice. He said he had to rough up the surface to get it to adhere. I don't remember that being done before and now I am worried if my teeth underneath have been shaved down or if they opened the gap further for some reason before putting the bonding on. I never knew this was going to happen so he had already started when I began to get worried. I just hate the thought of by teeth being damaged or filed down and this bonding coming off some day and having horrible looking front teeth now. If that is the case I would have just lived with this very minor gap. Is there any reason the doctor would grind down perfectly straight and beautiful teeth just to add composite bonding for a tiny gap? It looks good, but the thought of having my teeth underneath damaged has me really upset.

    Have to agree with Tara Roast- the explanation of the quality levels of porcelain material and of the designers are often left out by most Dr's on YT. Bravo Reuben! So, on those margins of $800 to $3,500 per tooth, the question begs, Dr Sim, can you give us those quality and price points that are invisible to the layman, to the art eficionado? I mean, outside of those patients walking out deliriously happy, no matter the price, I'm thinking Frankfurt, Prague. Reuben, please! Tell me why abroad isn't the right choice....

    Wow! wonderful information. You certainly know your stuff. Saddened I can't have either. I have some bruxism [stress], where my front teeth no longer overlap the bottom. Just sits on top of bottom teeth. Dentist said nothing can be done. Also said, because I was 64, a good clean and polish would be good enough for me. NOTE: when I first saw a dentist with the start of the bruxism [over 7 years ago], he said he couldn't do anything until I stopped teeth grinding. He NEVER mentioned anything like splints, which I'm now aware of. Sorry for raving on. Just sad that something could have been done earlier. from Tewantin Qld.

    My front top 8 are fully composite and the bottom front 8 teeth are partly composite. The only thing I don’t like about them is they never feel smooth like my natural back teeth and food sticks to them more and they do not shimmer in the light like porcelain do. My dentist didn’t give me a lot of information about composite veneers before i got them.

      I paid about $300 eleven years ago! I just got it re done 2 months ago because I had a cavity on the side of it. Which I thought was just food stain, but thankfully cause of the cavity my insurance paid for it. The first time I had to pay out of pocket because insurance considers it a cosmetic procedure. But it should last 10+ years as long as you don’t bite on hard things Such as an apple, it was my front tooth that I got done 👍🏻

    Thank you for your content and time!!! I watched your whole video. What toothpaste and mouth wash do you recommend for porcelain veneers, and what do you think of Supersmile brand by Dr. Irwin Smigel?
    I just got my four top front veneers in and even paid $400 usd for a teeth whitening with my cosmetic dentist and my natural teeth still don’t match my veneers, especially now that the whitening treatment has settled. I’m researching that whitening products can be too abrasive. Please help!!! Thank you kindly!!! Xoxo

    Great video, thank you very much for info! I booked appointment for ceramic veneers, simply because I cant afford porcelain and I am so fed up with my teeth. I was wearing braces so at least teeth are quite straight but now I have diastema. My question is, because I dont like how narrow my smile is, can the composit veneers make my smile wider on the back?

      Great question, basically yes you can as you're focusing on widening your smile at the back. Generally if you were opting for 4-6 teeth, to broaden your smile you would need to opt for 8-10. Check with your dentist as they would have better information to give you better options on how far you can broaden your smile.

    Very happy to view your video now I can make a better choice of what I want...my only drawback is I wish you had an office in the Big Apple.
    I would love to get braces and afterwards get porcelain veneers. My dentist works on my teeth and always ends up putting grit on the teeth that surrounds the tooth she's working on, which pisses me off and annoys the crap out of me because I like to run my tongue over my teeth.

      @lorijoy720 veneers or bonding? I have the same exact issue going on. Peg laterals. I’m leaning toward bonding. I’m just worried that they will stay in and not look good two years down the road. I don’t know if that’s true. I went to a cosmetic dentist and he told me he could bond them and they would look good for at least 5 to 10 years. But then another dentist told me that he wanted to veneer the laterals to make them look good. But I think he just wanted more money because veneers cost more. Are you leaning toward veneers or bonding?

    I have never smiled in a picture all my life, out there in the social setting I have complex when I'm talking to people. I intend to use hand expressions to distract people from focusing on my teeth when I'm having a conversation. I have always wanted to do cosmetics dentistry work but the cost has been a huge factor, as I belong to the working-class group and am a single parent to two children. Recently I have been considering a future trip to Turkey for dental treatment. Having listened to your video presentation, you said, is doable to combine porcelain veneer and Bonding (using Veneer on the upper teeth and Bonding on the lower teeth)? which will ultimately reduce the total cost.

      I am glad I chose composite bonding over veneers. First of all the cost of veneers to bonding is way more money and they file your teeth down and those can pop off over time.

      They are unable to do veneers if you have absolutely no enamel. They have to shave off a layer - enough to attach the porcelain or composite resin. I'm sure you have some enamel! It's always worth a try! It also depends how much they need to take off to attach the veneer. Veneers are meant for the front and or back of the tooth to protect from sensitivity. Always try :) if it's something you want you never know what can happen ;)

    I wanted to do Invisalign and then consider porcelain veneers. My dentist told me that I wouldn't be happy with Invisalign. She doesn't want to do veneers on teeth that have been straightened because they are unstable. I have had molars and incisors crowned with Cerec. I'm not happy with any of the crowns. They don't look anything like my original teeth. In some cases, the crowned teeth are more "stained" than the teeth that were replaced. Why did she make the crowns look stained? She wants to veneer 16 teeth in front. Why didn't she make the crowns white? At least I would have had 21 white teeth. What I dislike the most is one of my incisors had the nerve to die about a year after she crowned it. I think part of the issue was the tooth was too high which caused the issue. I almost want to sue this dentist but I don't have time and don't think I would get ahead.
