Benefits of Composite Veneers

Happy with your smile apart from one or two teeth? Or do you have a few gaps, crooked, discoloured or chipped teeth? Composite veneers may be a good first option before jumping straight into porcelain veneers.

What are composite veneers?

These are veneers that are made out of a composite resin material, rather than porcelain. They are bonded directly onto your tooth surface with minimal or no tooth preparation, making them a quick and affordable option to a new look smile. They can be done for as little as one or two teeth, or for as many as ten teeth.

Why have composite veneers?

They are a conservative treatment option which often do not damage your original tooth. As they are directly bonded on top of your natural tooth, there is minimal to no preparation required.

They can be used to correct:

  • Discoloured or stained teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth or teeth with uneven edges
  • The shape of your teeth
  • Crooked teeth.

Due to the nature of the composite material, teeth will not be translucent and reflect light the way natural teeth or porcelain veneers do. For this reason, we often recommend placing composite on a few teeth rather than all of your teeth.

Composite veneers also have the tendency to chip, dull and stain over time. As with all dental work, they require ongoing and special care to ensure their longevity and beautiful look.

The Procedure

Using one or a few shades of composite to match your teeth, each composite resin veneer is handcrafted by Dr Berera to change the shape and look of the tooth. As it is a direct procedure and no laboratory work is required, all of the treatment can be done at the one appointment.

For more natural looking changes in teeth and for larger number of teeth, Dr Berera may recommend porcelain veneers rather than composite veneers. At your initial consultation, we will be able to guide you towards the right treatment to perfect your smile.
