Direct Composite Veneers

Have you ever noticed that people who have an attractive smile appear friendlier and more approachable? Not only this, but a beautiful smile also improves your chances to enjoy a successful career. In fact, in a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 74% of the respondents believed that having an unpleasant smile significantly affects their chances to be successful in their careers.

Not many people are fortunate enough to have a naturally beautiful smile. But this does not mean that if you have stained or crooked teeth, you cannot enjoy the smile of your dreams. If you’re also not satisfied with your smile, then we have the perfect solution for you; direct composite veneers.

What are Composite Veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells made of composite resins, which are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth which become visible when you smile or speak. The composite resins have an excellent ability to match the color of your natural teeth. Therefore, once we restore your damaged teeth with composite veneers, they will be virtually indistinguishable with your own teeth. 
Who Can Benefit from Composite Veneers?

At Vinterbro Tannlegesenter, we recommend direct composite veneers for the following dental problems:

  • Permanent Stains – if you have permanent teeth stains which cannot be removed through a professional tooth whitening procedure, we will use direct composite veneers to cosmetically hide the stains and restore your smile.
  • Chipped or Crooked Teeth – whether you have a tooth which has become damaged because of cavities, or as a result of direct trauma, composite veneers are mechanically and esthetically superior to the direct fillings. This is why we recommend direct composite veneers for restoring grossly damaged teeth, especially the ones which lie in the cosmetically critical zone.
  • Excessive Teeth Gaps – the ideal treatment option for gaps between teeth is orthodontic treatment. However, patients who are not willing, or those who cannot afford orthodontic treatment are offered to get these gaps cosmetically restored with direct composite veneers at Vinterbro Tannlegesenter.
  • Misaligned Teeth – small tooth misalignments can also be corrected with direct composite veneers.
  • Shortened teeth (wear or fracture) – composite veneers are ideal and the best solution to restore short teeth back to their original length.
How are Composite Veneers Prepared?

Preparation of direct veneersat Vinterbro Tannlegesenter (tannlege ås) is very simple and is usually completed in a single sitting.

  • Consultation – first our dentists will perform a clinical examination of your teeth to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for getting your teeth restored with direct veneers.
  • Tooth Preparation – direct composite veneers usually do not require extensive tooth preparation. Only tooth cavities, if present is Afterward, the surface of the tooth is roughened by via chemical etching and sandblasting. This is done to ensure an optimal bond of the composite resin with the tooth.
  • Direct Filling – in the next step, we will apply the resin in small increments. Each increment is then shaped and polymerized into hard form by using a special light. In this way, each increment is applied and shaped until the tooth has been restored. The tooth is then polished to give maximum esthetics, and to prevent re-development of tooth cavities.
What are the Benefits of Direct Composite Veneers?

Many people think that composite veneers do not last long. This is not true. In fact, with the right choice of material and use of a recommended application protocol for the composite reins, you can expect your composite veneers to last as long or maybe longer than veneers made from ceramics. Not only this, composite veneers made under optimal conditions are even more beautiful than the ceramic veneers. Finally, the expertise of the dentists matters a lot.

Therefore, we will make sure that you are a proud owner of a beautiful and lasting smile when you walk out of our practice.
