What Are Composite Veneers?
Composite veneers are made from composite resin, a white coloured filling material. They are an excellent solution for improving the appearance of your teeth. They can conceal imperfections like slightly crooked, chipped, or misshapen teeth. These thin composite dental shells can be tailored to change the colour of teeth using composite veneers. As a result, you get quality dental laminates that blend with your actual teeth.
Why Choose Composite Veneers?
Composite veneers offer many advantages when chosen as a dental restorative treatment. These include the following:
- Lower cost per tooth as compared to porcelain veneers
- If direct composite veneers are used, then the application procedure is faster
- A good solution for teeth that are slightly disfigured, discoloured, or crooked
- Can be fixed or repaired easily if chipped or cracked
- Composite veneers do not require the removal of tooth tissue
- Can be removed without harming nearby teeth
The Two Types of Composite Veneers
Two different types of composite veneers are available, but both are crafted from the same resin material. Only their application processes differ.
Direct Composite Veneers
This type offers the quickest and most straightforward approach to improving the appearance of your teeth. Direct composite veneers can be completed in just one appointment and are considered minimally invasive. If you want to skip all the hassle, choose direct composite veneers. Our dentist will let you know if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
Indirect Composite Veneers
Indirect composite veneers, on the other hand, require the use of moulds to form the veneers. In other words, work will be done outside the patient’s mouth and will take longer to complete. Whilst you wait for the finished veneers, your dentist may install temporary dental laminates. Your dentist will add the actual set of composite veneers on your next visit. Then you will have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
