Composite Veneers

Often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, Composite material is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike crowns, Composite Veneers remove little, if any, of the original tooth.

Composite Veneers can be a good solution for:
  Fixing or repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  Reducing unsightly gaps or spaces between teeth
  Hiding discoloration or faded areas on the tooth's surface

 

 

Dental Techniques

Composite Veneers have a certain advantages:
  They can be done in one appointment
  Usually does not require much tooth removal, if any at all
  Their shades can be matched and blended to your natural tooth color
  They can be contoured to give the desired shape and size for that tooth
  They are less expensive than Porcelain Veneers
The disadvantages are:
  They are not as durable and long-lasting as Porcelain Veneers or Porcelain Crowns and will usually have to be replaced more frequently
  They tend to stain more easily because the material is inherently softer. Common foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, and even tobacco products can cause staining
  Composite Veneers may not be able to completely hide a natural tooth that is dark

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are thin "shells" that are typically used to change the shape and/or color of your front teeth. Each veneer is customized for you by a skilled lab technician. The lab process generally takes a few weeks and while that takes place you will have temporary veneers to protect your teeth. Once back from the lab, the porcelain veneers are securely bonded to your teeth. Because less tooth structure is removed, they are more conservative than crowns and because they are made from porcelain they will not retain stains like composite veneers.

Porcelain Veneers can be a great way to achieve that "Perfect Smile"

Common problems that veneers are used for:
  Spaces between the teeth
  Broken or chipped teeth
  Unsightly, stained or discolored teeth
  Permanently stained or discolored teeth
  Crooked or misshapen teeth

After Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are a great aesthetic solution to your smile that may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. Subtle changes to your smile can be achieved with porcelain veneers, and in most cases, veneer application is completed in only two office visits.
