If you find that flaws in your smile affect your confidence, composite veneers are an affordable, effective treatment that can transform your smile in less than an hour. Composite veneers are made out of composite resin, which is a form of plastic. They are a more affordable and quicker alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers can be used to address a variety of cosmetic and structural flaws, such as:
- Strengthening worn surfaces
- Improving the shape of the teeth
- Closing gaps between the teeth
- Filling small cavities
- Covering chips in teeth
As always, the price of composite veneers will vary from patient to patient, depending on your exact needs. However, you can expect a cost of around:
- Price: $300 to $500
- Health Insurance Item No*: 582
Benefits of Composite Veneers
- The fitting of composite veneers usually only requires one appointment, as veneers can be made at our office, instead of being sent offsite for fabrication.
- The composite resin is far less expensive than porcelain, and because it takes less time to fabricate, it is a cheaper option than porcelain veneers.
- Composite veneers can be repaired if they break, porcelain veneers have to completely replaced. Porcelain veneers are, however, more durable than composite veneers.
Our Procedure for Fitting Composite Veneers
- Firstly, the tooth to which your veneer will be fitted is cleaned and the enamel is smoothed. We will check for any signs of tooth decay or damage at this point.
- The area where the composite will be placed is then etched to create a perfect surface for a strong bond.
- Our expert team will then mould the composite material to fill any cavities or repair any chips or cracks.
- Once the composite is in place it will be set using an intensive light source. This is a completely pain-free way of creating the bond.
- The process usually takes less than an hour and there is often no need for needles or anesthetic. Once the composite has set it will be trimmed and shaped to ensure a perfect finish.
- When you’re happy with your new smile, enjoy your newfound confidence.
