Composite resin veneers
Composite Resin Veneers are a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used in a variety of cases. Also referred to as bonding, layers of putty-like composite ceramic materials are applied to the front surface of the tooth to recreate the natural colour of the tooth’s entire front surface. An intense light is applied intermittently throughout the layering process to cure and harden the composite material. The cured material is then contoured and polished to create a natural looking tooth.
One of the most effective and efficient restorative treatments available from the Richmond Fine Dentistry team that can often be completed in a single appointment visit is white composite resin veneers. Utilised to correct minor imperfections including chips, cover permanent stains, straighten crooked teeth or close spaces between teeth, composite resin veneers can quickly and easily help you have a striking new smile. At Richmond Fine Dentistry we have developed and advanced techniques to rebuild broken down smiles.
Composite resin is a formulated plastic, tooth coloured filling material developed from a blend of silica, quartz and fine glass particles mixed to a paste-like consistency, which is able to be colour matched to your natural tooth shade.
We will discuss with you during your consultation appointment your aspirations and develop a tailored treatment plan, please feel free to ask any questions as we want you to be relaxed and confident that you have all the information you need relating to every aspect of your procedure.
The surface of your teeth receiving composite veneers will be made slightly rough using a formulated solution, this will ensure a stronger bond between your tooth and composite resin, some minor reshaping of the teeth may also be required.
Placement of composite veneers requires an artistic hand as they are applied to the surface of your teeth in layers, hardened by a specially developed light and sculpted to the perfect shape. Several layers may need to be placed, thereby blending seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth. The versatility and natural appearance of composite resin veneers is why they are becoming an increasingly popular option.
Placement of composite resin veneers requires patience and time to achieve the results we expect, we will be able to advise you of the anticipated time frame at your consultation appointment following an examination of the teeth you would like treated.
