Composite veneers are additions of composite (white) material on to the teeth to improve the appearance or aesthetics of those teeth. They are used to change the colour, shape, and size of the teeth to make them more attractive.
Composite Veneers are technically very demanding and should only be done by highly skilled dentists. Composite veneers are done in the dental chair by directly applying and sculpting the material to the teeth by a bonding technique. They need to match the adjacent teeth and be symmetrical, and they must also match the shape of the dental arch and patient’s facial profile.
When can Composite Veneers be used?
✔ To restore broken down or chipped teeth.
✔ To close spaces between teeth (Composite Veneers can be the ideal choice of treatment to close a gap between two upper front teeth)
✔ To mask very stained teeth
