Alternative to Porcelain
Composite veneers, unlike porcelain veneers are not permanent as no removal of your enamel is required to make way for the veneers. This is a big plus for patients who are unsure about porcelain veneers.
These days a beautiful smile is more affordable than it used to be with today’s composite dental materials giving patients a beautiful smile, and best of all, composite veneers are about half the cost of porcelain veneers.
Although composite veneers will not last as long as porcelain veneers, they can last for 8 to 10 years as long as you take good care of your new composite veneers.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Composite veneers are applied directly to your tooth or teeth in layers. This allows Dr. Wang to sculpt the putty into the desired shape. Composite veneers are used for cracks and chips, breaks and for small spaces between the teeth. Composite veneers can also be used to lengthen or shorten your teeth.
