What Are Composite Veneers?

Dental veneers are made of either porcelain or composite, and each has certain benefits.

Composite veneers are an affordable solution that can be applied in one dental visit with the least amount of tooth preparation.

Dental composite is the same resin used in tooth bonding, and the procedure of receiving composite veneers is minimally invasive, as less preparation is required before application and there is no need for anaesthetic.

Many people have asked us if veneers ruin your teeth. Be assured that they do not, as veneers protect your teeth from decay and damage.

When you use veneers to straighten your teeth, you can brush and clean in between the teeth with ease, and improved oral hygiene means healthier teeth and mouth.

Get Your Best Smile At Dental & Skin Clinic

Dental And Skin Clinic Zoe C Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

While composite veneers are a great choice to help improve your smile and protect your teeth, dental veneers can look fake when done incorrectly. This is especially true with composite veneers since these are shaped and designed by the dentist.

If veneers are too bulky or thick, they can look out of place. If they are too small, too white or too monochrome, they can look like Tic Tacs!

Our team here at Dental & Skin Clinic in Melbourne understands how the smile and face interplay with each other.

We know how to improve a client’s smile to enhance the face. You can be confident knowing that our experience is what you need to get the smile that is best for you.

An Orthodontic Alternative

Straightening teeth with traditional braces and aligners can take years. That’s why dental veneers are a popular solution for many clients.

Whether your teeth are too far forward or backward, composite veneers can quickly and effectively position your teeth by reshaping them and applying a veneer with an improved shape.

Your smile will not only be more attractive, but more functional as your bite and teeth are in an improved position for your mouth.

Facial Rejuvenation

Strategic positioning and shaping of composite veneers can result in a natural-looking, anti-aging solution.

Sometimes called a “Smile Lift,” this non-surgical alternative to a facelift can add volume and width to your face, smooth out fine lines around your mouth and when combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments, act as an alternative to a facelift.

But unlike a facelift, your new smile and improved teeth placement will look beautifully youthful and not require weeks of downtime.

Caring For Composite Veneers

Once you get your composite veneers placed, we know you want them to last as long as possible. The following tips can help you care for your composite veneers.
Z

Brush twice each day and use interdental brushes called Piksters at night

Z
Use non-abrasive toothpaste (eg. Sensodyne) and avoid any toothpaste that markets itself as a whitening toothpaste (these are too abrasive for teeth in general, let alone for veneers)
Z
Do not bite hard objects like ice cubes or pens, because just like a tooth, you can chip a veneer
Z
If you eat raw apples or carrots, use the side teeth to bite or slice them thinly to ensure you don’t chip your veneers. We have a saying ‘jewels at the front, tools at the back’
Z
Do your best to avoid foods and beverages that stain such as coffee, tea, red wine and curry
Z
If you smoke, do your best to stop
Z
Wear your aftercare guard when you go to sleep
Z
Get your teeth and veneers professionally cleaned and polished 2-3 times per year

What are some alternatives to veneers?

 
One alternative is called the ‘Snap on Smile’. This is something you wear over your teeth to give the illusion of a straighter, whiter smile. It does not look as natural as Porcelain Veneers but some people prefer this option. We do not offer this at Dental & Skin Clinic because the aesthetic results are disappointing. In additional they are bulky and thick and not customised to the gum line which means they attract food and plaque around the gum line, making them difficult to clean and can cause the gums to become chronically inflamed and irritated.

Orthodontics is another alternative to Dental Veneers. They work by straightening the teeth typically over a period of 6-24 months, depending on how crooked the teeth are and what the final goal is. Orthodontics in the form of traditional braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign or other clear aligner brands work the same way which is to straighten the teeth. What they don’t do is correct the colour or the shape of teeth.

Teeth whitening is a quick and easy solution for an instantly brighter smile. Typically most people get about a 15-20% overall improvement in the colour of the teeth. However for some people it doesn’t work at all and they can end up being disappointed. That’s where other avenues such as veneers may be a suitable option to explore.
