Composite (Ceramic) Dental Veneers

Composite (Ceramic) Dental Veneers

Dental Composite or Ceramic Veneers are commonly used in smile makeovers at our clinic because they cover the front (or facial surface) of the tooth. Composite or Ceramic Dental Veneers are used to serve many purposes for our Cosmetic dentistry patients, including the correction of minor crowding, tooth wear and permanent tooth whitening. Dental veneers can also change the shape of your teeth, hide chips, close gaps, and create uniformity. After being bonded to the front teeth in a short, painless procedure, ceramic veneers are relatively easy to maintain with regular brushing and flossing.

Composite (Ceramic) veneers are custom fabricated by a specialized laboratory for your specific teeth. The ceramic veneer fabrication proccess takes 1-2 days. With composite veneers no need to shave your teeth. 

Composite (Ceramic) Veneers offer high resistance to discoloration and are extremely durable.



Questions & Answers

Why Do People Have Composite Veneers?

A: We offer a range of cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of your front teeth and composite veneers are an effective way to do this. They are placed directly onto the teeth and are used to mask and change the shape, colour, and position of your teeth.

B: Veneers may be used to restore or correct the following dental conditions:

  1. Severely discoloured or stained teeth
  2. Misshapen teeth
  3. Teeth that are too small or large
  4. Slight tooth crowding
  5. Unwanted or uneven spaces
  6. Worn or chipped teeth

How Many Teeth Should I Have Treated?

Most people typically get 8 to 10 top teeth and 8 to 10 bottom teeth treated at the same time. Or some people get composite veneers on the top teeth only and whiten the bottom ones.


How Long Does Treatment Take?

Treatment takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the number of teeth being treated. Currently the Pre appointment for treatments is one week.


Are My Teeth Suitable For Composite Veneers?

If you are interested in having composite veneers, we need to assess your teeth to make sure they are suitable. We offer free consultations to discuss your needs and assess which treatment options would give the desired results.  


Should I Have Porcelain Veneers Or Composite Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a good option for restoring worn or broken teeth, and they can mask, change the shape, position, and colour of your teeth. They require some preparation of your Composite followed by an impression which is then sent to a dental laboratory to fabricate the veneer.

Composite veneers are placed directly onto teeth to mask and change the shape, color, and position of your teeth. Composite veneers are very popular as they require little or no tooth preparation ( No Shaving Teeth ). Although not as strong as porcelain veneers they are repairable and quite durable.



What Are Composite Veneers Made From?

The composite material is made up of different sized grains of silica (glass) in a methacrylate (resin) matrix. It is bonded in layers to the teeth and polished with a variety of diamond burs and polishing discs.


Do I have to get my other teeth whitened after getting veneers treatment?

You do not have to get the other teeth whitened, as they just might match with the veneers. However, if you have discolored teeth, then you can decide to have tooth whitening if you would like, but it’s not a requirement.


Do My Teeth Have To Be Filed Down?

In most cases composite veneers require no preparation of your teeth so it’s completely reversible if you maintain toothbrushing and flossing.


Are There Foods I Can’t Eat?

Generally, you can eat what you like as most foods have no detrimental effects on the composites. You should be more careful with hard foods such as bones, boiled sweets, and apples, as they have a greater potential to chip the composites.


Will My Composites Get Stained?

Smoking can cause staining so if you are a smoker we advise more frequent polishing – every 3 months. Generally, food and drink does not stain the composites, however, you should maintain good oral hygiene with brushing and flossing and the composites should by polished every 3-6 months to lift any staining that does occur.


How Long Will My Composites Last?

Composite veneers tend to last for quite some time often many years if they are maintained, and they can be easily repaired. As part of the maintenance of composite veneers it is important to brush your teeth twice a day, to floss once a day, and to have a scale and polish every 3-6 months.

• Can be done in one visit.

• Less expensive than porcelain veneers.

 • Little or no natural tooth reduction.
