We treat patients in and around Macclesfield and offer a range of cosmetic enhancements that can get the best out of your smile and offer some surprising benefits. Read on to find out more about composite veneers, and why we might recommend them to our patients.
What are composite veneers?
Think of them as like false nails for your teeth, except strong, durable, and matched to your smile. Our experts craft them from composite, known for their strength and appearance, and for lasting in the long term under great dental care.
Why have composite veneers?
People love to enhance their smiles in a natural-looking way. Composite veneers are closely matched to the shade and style of your surrounding teeth for a seamless look. They can restore chips and cracks, and even reduce the gaps between the teeth. Sometimes, patients choose composite veneers to cover a dull or stained tooth.
How are composite veneers attached?
Minor preparation of the tooth is involved, gently filing the surface to ensure the veneer will adhere. The veneer covering is then created to fit your mouth perfectly, and is applied with a dental adhesive. Most patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure, as the area is numbed beforehand.
How long do composite veneers take?
We advise that most appointments take 2-3 sessions, but this includes discussing your options and ensuring you’re comfortable with the treatment process. Fitting the veneers can be done in a matter of minutes, depending on your circumstances and the number of teeth being treated.
How do I care for my new composite veneers?
First and foremost, follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions to give your teeth time to recover and allow for any numbing of your mouth to wear off. Next, be aware a good dental routine is everything. While your tooth now has a covering, it’s still possible to develop decay and other concerns and you must keep on top of brushing and flossing. You’ll also need regular dental check-ups, and of course, let us know if anything is amiss. Finally, try to avoid staining foods and drinks and be aware of bad habits that could affect your new smile, like teeth grinding.
