What are Composite Veneers?
Composite veneers are thin, usually tooth-coloured, resin shells with a smooth surface. These shells fit over the front of teeth to change their colour, shape, or size. Composite veneers require the process of dental bonding to ensure the resin is secured in place. This dental bonding process is straightforward and hassle-free, which differs from some other restorative treatments. With composite veneers, you can completely transform the aesthetic value and functionality of your teeth and customise each resin veneer to suit your needs.
Composite veneers are often used to repair the following dental conditions:
- Chipped or fractured teeth with sharp edges
- Teeth with gaps between them
- Teeth with misshapen, irregularly shaped crowns
- Front teeth that are worn down or broken from grinding or clenching habit
- Largely discoloured areas in front teeth caused by root canal treatments in the past
If you are suffering from any of these dental complications or wish to transform your smile, talk to use today about the composite veneers procedure offered by our team Greenland Dental.
Composite Bonding Procedure
The composite bonding procedure to be used on your teeth will depend on what type of composite veneers you have opted for. At Greenland Dental, we give our patients a choice between direct and indirect composite veneers. Although they provide the same benefits and are formed from the same resin material, they are applied to the teeth differently.
Both of our composite bonding procedures start the same way:
Our dentists will clean your teeth thoroughly and prepare your mouth for application
The enamel of your tooth will be roughened up slightly to ensure the material sticks
When these two steps have been completed, the remainder of the procedure will depend on your choice between direct or indirect composite veneers.
If Direct Resin Veneers Are Chosen:
Adhesive glue will be applied to your teeth
Thin layers of resin will be applied to your teeth
The layers of resin will be hardened with a curing light
If Indirect Resin Veneers Are Chosen:
An impression of your teeth will be taken so that your dental veneers can be made inside of a lab
Once the resin veneers are ready, a bonding agent will be applied to the teeth to help the material stick
A curing light will be used to harden the shells
