Many patients come to our clinic to redesign the aesthetics of their smile thanks to the treatment of composite veneers.
Before going deeper into the subject, what are veneers? veneers allow us to create a smile personalised to our taste and needs, it is an ideal solution to correct small problems, alignment defects, the colour of our teeth or even to change the shape or size of our teeth. Some of the most common questions our patients ask us are the following:
Is it possible to have aesthetic veneers without grinding my teeth?
Yes, it is the most widely used treatment and the one that gives the best results. Composite veneers are a dental treatment that allows us to improve aesthetics without touching our teeth in most cases.
How many appointments would you need?
With only three appointments we could complete our treatment. In our first appointment we would carry out the aesthetic study and digital design of our smile, in the second appointment the doctor would make a mock up to see how the design would look in our mouth and if it adapts to our tastes and needs.
And finally, at the third appointment, our dental veneers would be placed.
What are pressed veneers?
Pressed veneers allow us to make the placement of the veneers a quick and easy process where we can create an exact copy of the digital model that we had made for our patient and in just one appointment we will carry out the whole procedure. In addition, it offers quality, predictable results and there is no need to grind or touch our teeth.
Can composite veneers be bleached?
Composite veneers cannot be bleached once they are in place, so it is important that we choose the colour we want for our veneers in the mock-up together with the doctor.
In any case, if we want to improve the colour of our teeth, we can carry out a previous whitening before placing our veneers.
Why is it important to maintain our veneers?
Composite veneers stain more easily than porcelain veneers, so we must avoid bad habits, such as smoking or eating foods that stain our teeth, among others.
Correct maintenance will prevent our veneers from becoming deformed or losing their colour and will extend the life of our veneers.
Advantages of composite veneers.
There are several advantages of composite veneers, among which we highlight:
- We can add them to the tooth without having to grind the tooth.
- They are easy to repair in the event of a fracture, as they are repaired in the same clinic and do not have to be sent out, like porcelain ones.
- Composite veneers last between 5 – 10 years.
- Composite veneers are cheaper.
- They provide a great aesthetic result.
Price of composite veneers.
Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers, the price depends on the patient’s case and the number of veneers to be made. At One clinic we offer you a personalised budget.
