What is a Composite Veneer?
Composite Resin Veneers are a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used in a variety of cases. Also referred to as bonding, layers of putty-like composite ceramic materials are applied to the front surface of the tooth to recreate the natural colour of the tooth’s entire front surface. An intense light is applied intermittently throughout the layering process to cure and harden the composite material. The cured material is then contoured and polished to create a natural looking tooth.
One of the most effective and affordable restorative treatments available from the Pro Dental SA team, that can often be completed in a single appointment visit is white composite resin veneers. Utilised to correct minor imperfections including chips, cover permanent stains, straighten crooked teeth or close spaces between teeth, composite resin veneers can quickly and easily help you have a striking new smile. At Pro Dental SA we have developed and advanced techniques to rebuild broken down smiles.
The surface of your teeth receiving composite veneers will be made slightly rough using a formulated solution, this will ensure a stronger bond between your tooth and composite resin, some minor reshaping of the teeth may also be required.
Placement of composite resin veneers requires patience and time to achieve the results we expect, we will be able to advise you of the anticipated timeframe at your consultation appointment following an examination of the teeth you would like treated.
