The teeth are built up with a material called Composite Resins. Composite resins are mouldable and come in various shades to match the tooth colour.The latest advancement in composite resins is Nano Composites which are stronger and more resistant to stains compared to the old ones. To create composite veneers, composite material is applied to the front surfaces of the teeth and sculpted to the desired shape and finished under the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist. It is possible to make the composite veneers look very natural. Please see the photographs of case done.
Who can provide composite veneers?
To create natural looking composite veneers, dentist must have an artistic flair and the technical skills required to carry out this type of treatment. A cosmetic dentist experienced in composite veneers will have a clear understanding of the properties of dental materials and experience in hand-crafting and replicating the shape, texture and characteristics of teeth. Every individual is unique and has a different tooth shape, smile line and symmetry. An experienced cosmetic dentist will take all these factors into account when creating composite veneers.
