Composite veneers are used to improve the shape, size, colour and texture of teeth to make them more attractive. They can be used to fix minor chips and cracks in teeth, close gaps, help with stained teeth etc. They are different from porcelain veneers in that they require little if any tooth reduction. However unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be prone to staining and may not last as long.
To create composite veneers, composite material is applied to the surfaces of the teeth and sculpted to the desired shape and finish.
Porcelain veneers are made in a lab from impression records and subsequently bonded to the teeth. We do these veneers as well and for more information on either porcelain or composite veneers telephone one of our team on 01277 658895.
