What are composite veneers?

Veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of your existing teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are just one of several ways to alter the appearance of your teeth.

There are 2 main kinds of veneers: porcelain and composite. As you’d expect from the name, porcelain veneers are custom made of porcelain to fit your teeth, While composite veneers are often made from a tooth-coloured resin, the same type of material used with teeth bonding.

Who can get veneers?

Dental veneers can cover up tooth imperfections and give you an even, bright smile.

Imperfections can include teeth that are crooked or misshapen, chipped, stained, or discoloured, or maybe the enamel on your teeth has eroded.

Veneers cover part of your teeth but they’re actually different from crowns, which are thicker and cover an entire tooth — back and front. Crowns also tend to require more trimming of the tooth, which you may or may not need with veneers.

Crowns are usually used for teeth that are more damaged. For example, if you have a  broken tooth or need a root canal, a crown may be a better solution.

Direct composite veneers are veneers made of a composite resin material applied directly to your teeth. It doesn’t take very long for a dentist to prepare your teeth for application of the veneers, and the application process is considered minimally invasive.

Compared to Porcelain Veneers and Crowns, direct composite veneers are:  

  • lower at cost
  • It needs a shorter application process if direct veneers
  • It can cover up many aesthetic problems, including misshapen teeth, discolorations, and other defects

How long do composite veneers last?

Composite veneers are becoming more durable today than in the past. They can usually last 5 to 7 years, on average.

You may be able to extend the life of your composite veneers by taking good care of them.

Embrace a routine of regular brushing with a nonabrasive toothpaste, and resist any urge to chew on ice and other hard objects with your front teeth. Furthermore, we can also remove and repair composite veneers by adding new composite material.
