Composite Veneers at Marylebone Implant centre

Most people have heard of porcelain veneers but may not have heard of composite veneers. Both are used to improve a person’s smile, but they do have some differences. Dentists may prefer one option more than the other but as a patient you should be aware of the differences.

Composite veneers can be applied in a day and may last from four to eight years. They do require some maintenance because they can chip. Porcelain veneers can last from twelve to twenty-five years and they don’t usually require maintenance.

Composite veneers are a great option for patients looking to improve their smile. They can provide a natural looking appearance and don’t cost as much as porcelain veneers. When composite veneers are applied, resin is applied to the tooth in layers. The resin is sculpted right in the patient’s mouth to give patients the look that they want.

It can be used in situations when there is discolouration of natural teeth or when there is chipping. They can also be used to make misaligned teeth look like they are aligned.

One of the biggest advantages of using composite veneers is that it is easily reversible. Composite veneers can be removed and replaced as needed. If a patient is not happy with the way their composite veneer turned out, they are not stuck with it forever.

It’s a good idea for patients to ask to see some of their dentists work to make sure they are capable of doing a good job because this type of dentistry is not for everyone. A skilled dentist can make a composite veneer that looks like it is a natural part of a person’s mouth.

It requires close attention to detail, but a skilled dentist will take his or her time to make sure the end product is one you, the patient, will be happy with.
