What Everybody Needs to Know About Composite Veneers

If you are someone who, when you smile, have chips or gaps, there is a very good chance that you would like to correct that flaw, no matter how minor. Fortunately, you have several options on the table, and our experienced New Jersey dental team is more than happy to help. One of those options is veneers. There are two primary types of veneers available: composite and porcelain, though this blog is dedicated exclusively to composite resin veneers. Please continue reading and give our dental team a call to learn more about composite veneers and why they may be the best option for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are composite veneers and how do they work?

Essentially, a composite veneer is a cost-effective way to permanently improve your smile. As opposed to porcelain, composite veneers are composed of a plastic that matches both the shape and color of your teeth. The process for creating these veneers is rather simple; essentially, all you have to do is come in for an appointment, where we will then take impressions of your teeth and remove a very small amount of enamel from your front teeth to prepare them for veneer placement. From here, we will send those impressions to the lab, and once we receive the veneers, you will come back for a quick bonding procedure, where we will bond the veneer to your teeth. You will then leave with the smile you’ve always wanted!

What are the benefits of having composite resin veneers over porcelain veneers?

There are many benefits to having composite veneers over porcelain veneers. To start, composite veneers are cheaper, however, this does not mean that they are any less effective. In fact, they are permanent, and they require far less preparation. Additionally, these veneers can restore the aesthetics of your smile, and if they break, replacing or repairing it is far easier than repairing a porcelain veneer. If you have any additional questions or you believe you are ready to get started, simply give us a call today. We are here to help!
