Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are a same-day procedure, meaning they are sculpted to your teeth in one go as you sit in our dental chair and relax. Similar in colour to your tooth, the resin is applied directly to the tooth surface and then shaped and sculpted by a dentist.

Using a high-intensity light, the resin is then hardened and if needed, more layers can be added and sculpted until you have a nicely shaped tooth. On finishing, the resin is given a polish and shine to give it that more natural appearance and you are good to go.

Advantages

Due to this quick and convenient process, composite resin veneers are considered less invasive and are immediately noticeable.

The biggest advantage of composite veneers is that they are reversible. Requiring minimal to no preparation on your teeth, composite resin is not a permanent fix so it can be removed and replaced or even added to as required. This is very helpful in the case of a chipped tooth as it is very easy to repair, whereas a porcelain veneer would need replacing.

Disadvantages

Composite resin veneers are a more porous substance than porcelain and can pick up more staining over time. If you are a lover of tea, coffee, curry, berries and/or red wine, this might not be the most suitable option for you.

They are also a softer material than porcelain, which means they are more likely to chip and break down over time and require a lot more love and care. This also means that they do not last as long as porcelain and would need replacing after 4 to 8 years.

Our team offer a complimentary polish up of composite veneers at your six-monthly check-up, as well as a scale and clean to maintain your composite veneers and ensure they have the longest possible lifespan.
