Composite veneers are made from an acrylic resin which is then bonded on to your tooth. They cost less than porcelain veneers making them an affordable option for many. They generally have a shorter lifespan than porcelain veneers. This is because the acrylic resin is less durable than porcelain.
Having it for the first time?
Composite veneers are usually completed at a single appointment. Usually, the teeth are not prepared prior to placing the veneers. This means local anaesthetic is usually not required, and the teeth are not shaved down at all. The composite is applied directly to the front surface of the teeth and moulded to the required shape and size before being set and bonded to the teeth. The veneers are then finely shaped and polished to achieve the desired appearance. It is relatively straightforward to reshape composite veneers either by adding or removing composite, either at the initial appointment or any follow-up appointments if desired.
