Composite Veneers

Thin layers of resin that cover the tooth without grinding away enamel of the tooth, and hardened by blue light is called Composite Veneers.

Gaps between teeth, crooked or misshapen, chipped, stained, or discolored teeth could be fixed with Composite Veneers.

Composite Veneers takes one session to finish.

Step-by-Step Composite Veneers

Step 1: Teeth Cleaning for preperation.

Step 2: Enamel etching to help with adhesion. But sometimes if patient`s teeth need major changes to shape or color then our dentist may remove a thin layer of enamel.

Step 3: Appling an adhesive glue to help the composite resin material stick to your teeth.

Step 4: Adding thin layers of the composite material to the surface of teeth and shaping.

Step 5: Hardening the layers of the composite resin with a light and polishing.

Patients could pick the shade or color they want for veneers. Our dentists can mix composite resin colors to make the veneers look natural.

After treatment we suggest our patients to watch out for drinks like coffee or tea that might stain your new veneers.

Composite veneers are considered more durable today than in the past due to developing technology. It is possible to extend the life of your composite veneers by taking good care of them.

Post-treatment care:

We advise our patients to maintain daily oral hygiene, use a soft cuppling for brushing and floss their teeth after every meal. They must pick non-abrasive toothpastes. It is also important to have regular dental cleaning to ensure that proper oral hygiene is maintained.

Patients should avoid smoking and should reduce their consumption of colored beverages such as coffee, tea and red wine. With regards to food, avoid sauces like ketchup, mustard, etc.

Patients should also control their bite, avoid gripping or cutting things with their teeth and avoid eating hard foods. Be careful not to grind your teeth, to control friction, and to avoid sports where there is a risk of damage or injury to the face.
