Get a dental makeover

They say that there is no such thing as a quick fix, well, we beg to differ.

If you want straighter and whiter teeth in just one sitting, the solution comes in the form of composite veneers. Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers or composite veneers are thin shells of tooth-coloured, translucent porcelain or composite resin, custom made to fit over teeth and improve their colour, shape and overall appearance.

Dental veneers can dramatically improve your smile and appearance by giving you straighter and whiter teeth.

What can composite veneers fix?

If you want to improve your smile, many people believe that they will have to undergo orthodontic treatment such as braces (which can take months – sometimes years) followed by teeth whitening. Of course, the results are often incredible. But if you are an adult, an aversion to braces is completely understandable. But this does not mean that you cannot experience a beautiful smile.

Composite veneers can provide a quick alternative to fixing (or should we rather say, concealing) these various issues:

  • Spaces between the teeth.
  • Poorly shaped or crooked teeth.
  • Broken or chipped teeth.
  • Permanently externally stained and/or internally stained teeth.
  • Unsightly or stained fillings.

It is important to remember that composite veneers (or any veneers for that matter) cannot adjust or fix jaw alignment issues. If you are looking to fix an underbite, overbite or crossbite, orthodontics will be required.

How do composite veneers work?

Today’s composite materials can provide a natural, beautiful appearance. Composite veneers are a layer of composite resin (tooth coloured filling material) bonded to the front of the tooth surface. With composite veneers, the resin is applied one layer at a time and sculpted directly in the mouth. It is shaped to slowly cover the existing tooth until the desired aesthetic the patient is looking for is achieved. Composite veneers are placed in a single appointment and are minimally invasive.

Benefits of composite veneers

Composite veneers are an alternative to porcelain veneers and offer several benefits. The primary benefits associated with composite veneers are listed below:

  • Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers—about half the price.
  • Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers are applied in a single appointment.
  • The greatest advantage of composite veneers is that it is an additive process that is reversible and can be removed and replaced as needed.
  • They give the appearance of whiter teeth.
  • Any chips or cracks to composite resin veneers can be easily repaired to achieve excellent results.
  • They give the appearance of more aligned teeth.
  • They can beautifully enhance your smile.

Composite veneers offer an affordable and quick solution to achieving a beautiful, whiter smile that looks completely natural. They are a fantastic option if you are looking for a smile makeover.
