Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are similar to porcelain veneers, but they differ in the material used. Composite is dental resin commonly used for fillings. A special, highly esthetic resin is chosen for veneers to allow for a highly polished finish.

Veneers are like fake nails for teeth because they are a thin, whitish layer of composite or porcelain that changes the appearance. However, veneers are carefully customized for you regardless of the material used.

Indirect Veneers

This procedure is almost the same as porcelain or ceramic veneers. Indirect veneers are made using the molds of your teeth. Because this process takes two appointments, provisional veneers are also required. The veneers will be permanently glued on the second appointment.

Direct Veneers

When doing direct veneers, every tooth is treated individually or in small sections because the surface of the enamel must be reduced and the composite veneer is put on afterwards. Upon placement of the individual veneers, they are polished to make each tooth look natural.
