Veneers may be appropriate where you have the following:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Irregularly shaped or malaligned teeth.
There are two types of veneers that may be appropriate depending on your situation.
Smile design with Composite Veneers
This is a minimally invasive technique where layers of composite resin are bonded directly to damaged teeth and sculpted to restore and reproduce the natural aesthetics of your smile.
Composite materials are made from tooth-coloured resin, that are close to plastic in nature. They are more sensitive to staining when compared to porcelain as the resin is porous, so we advise to have them regularly professionally polished. They may need resurfacing after approximately 5 years.
This is our preferred restorative option where possible as:
- little or no tooth reduction is necessary
- composite veneers are directly moulded onto your teeth so they can be applied in a single visit
- Repairs and resurfacing are straightforward.
