Are Composite Veneers Right for You?

Composite veneers can conceal a range of aesthetic imperfections. They can be a great solution for those who wish to address:

  • Intrinsic stains, which typically do not respond to whitening products
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Worn or naturally small teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or broken teeth
  • Small cracks or chips

We mostly use composite veneers for aesthetic purposes. In some cases, however, the treatment can also strengthen your teeth and prevent additional damage.

Before placing composite veneers, Dr. Hennigan or Dr. Bray will evaluate your oral health. Your dentist will treat any existing decay or gum disease before recommending this procedure.

What to Expect When You Receive Composite Veneers

Treatment begins with an initial consultation, in which you will thoroughly explain your goals and concerns to your dentist. Your treatment will usually take place in a single subsequent visit. Your dentist will lightly etch your teeth and apply a bonding agent. Next, he will choose a color of composite that will blend with your smile. Your dentist may treat only one tooth, or you could have composite veneers placed across all of your front teeth. Your dentist will work carefully to conceal flaws, fill in cracks, and augment the teeth to improve their shape. When he has achieved the desired results, your dentist will use a curing light to harden the composite. Finally, he will polish the treated teeth so that they look completely natural.

They provide a "no pain' and 'no anxiety' atmosphere, with the kindest staff in the area. dr.bray gave me a smile I could be proud of!

Risks and Benefits of Composite Veneers

Because your dentist will leave your tooth structure intact, composite veneers pose virtually no risks. It is important to note that the composite will eventually need to be replaced. However, with proper care, your composite veneers can last many years.

Composite veneers offer numerous benefits. They can address multiple issues at once, and the treatment is very affordable. Once complete, your composite veneers can make your smile look symmetrical and healthy, helping you to feel more confident in your personal and professional life.
