What Are Composite Veneers?

Composite veneer is a less invasive method to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile by transforming the front surfaces of a patient’s teeth using the composite material which is the same materials as dental fillings. The moldable composite material is layered on top of the tooth front surface changing the shape, size and shade.

As composite veneer needs minimal preparation work, patient’s teeth are required to be pretty straight. Otherwise the dentist would need to build up the materials on other teeth to make them align, and this would make the appearance of the patients teeth bulky.

The advantage of getting composite veneer other than it’s less invasive method, is that it provides a very natural and tooth-like finish. This means it won’t be able to achieve the extremely white Hollywood smile shade, but it can provide a more natural teeth whiteness while improving the size, length and shape.
