What Are Composite Veneeers?
Composite Veneers, also known as Direct Resin Veneers, are an alternative to porcelain veneers. They offer several advantages over porcelain. The biggest advantage is that composite veneers offer non-invasive smile enhancement. This is a means to an outstanding smile transformation with no shaving down teeth.
Patients can smile with confidence knowing that a beautiful natural new smile was completed without harming their natural teeth. How is this possible? The composite veneers are placed directly over the patients enamel which enhances the shape, proportion and color.
Composite veneers are as durable as your own enamel and long lasting. Composite veneers typically last over ten years. Another advantage is that composite veneers are placed over a two day period and do not require waiting with temporaries.
Should a patient fracture a composite veneer, they can be repaired at the office without having to completely redo them or wait for the lab which is why they are typically less costly than porcelain because there is no lab bill.
Composite veneers can stain at the same rate as natural enamel. Tea, coffee, and red wine can contribute to this, however composite veneers can be whitened with professional whitening gel.
I have developed the skill required to achieve world renown natural looking smile enhancements over the past eleven years during my accreditation process with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. This means that my results using composite resin veneers as an alternative to porcelain have been approved by the highest standards in the world for judging cosmetic dentistry. The majority of dentists do not offer this procedure because of the skill level required to attain these results. Patients can rest assure knowing that their result will look as good as the best porcelain veneers.
