A Non-Invasive Smile Makeover with Composite Veneers
Want a whiter, brighter, more even smile, but don’t want to wait for them to be handcrafted by our Ceramic Artists? While Porcelain Veneers, Invisalign, and teeth whitening are all great options when it comes to transforming your smile, sometimes you just want an instant transformation. After all, what’s better than getting out there and showing off your dazzling new pearly whites to the rest of the world?! Composite Veneers allow you to do just that. In just one appointment, skilled Cosmetic Dentists can use Composite Veneers to address:
- Stained and/or discoloured teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Small-sized teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Thin enamel
Composite Veneers fit directly over the front of natural teeth to strengthen, boost, and rejuvenate your smile. Better yet, there’s no need for needles and very minimal tooth preparation is required.
What are Composite Veneers Made From?
Composite Veneers are made from a thin layer of engineered resin. This white filing material can be mixed chair-side to achieve your desired shade and once fitted, produces a very natural-looking result. Before making your Composite Veneers, expert Cosmetic Dentists will take impressions of your teeth.
To bond Composite Veneers to the surface of natural teeth, dentists apply a thin coat of composite resin. This is shaped to fill unwanted gaps and address areas of concern. Dentists will then cure the veneers with a special blue UV light. Once the resin has hardened, the veneers are polished so that they truly dazzle and shine.
Benefits of Composite Veneers
The most obvious benefit of Composite Veneers is that they can be applied quickly. Once moulds are made from your impressions, Composite Veneers can be fitted in as little as one appointment.
The treatment is non-invasive and pain-free—no needles, no tooth reshaping, and only a slight amount of enamel removed to assist with adhesion.
If cared for correctly, Composite Veneers can last 7 – 10 years.
The upfront price of these veneers is affordable, making them a durable and cost-effective solution to address specific aesthetic dental concerns.
How to care for Composite Veneers
Despite their strength, Composite Veneers can be susceptible to chips if not cared for properly. To ensure long-lasting smile satisfaction, maintain good dental hygiene (floss and brush twice a day). Try to avoid hard foods, like nuts and hard lollies, and foods and drinks that might stain, as Composite Veneers cannot be whitened once fitted.
