What are Composite Veneers?
Composite veneer is part of cosmetic dentistry, where the dentist uses the malleable composite material to build and change the aesthetics of the patient’s teeth. Using composite veneer the dentist is able to improve the patient’s smile by changing the appearance of the tooth. The shape, shade and size of the tooth can be redesigned to a whiter, brighter and straighter smile.
How Long Do Composite Veneers Take To Be Installed?
Composite veneer is considered a direct veneer treatment, which means it can be completed within one visit. At Parramatta Dentistry we strongly recommend patients to come in for a consultation to discuss the composite veneer treatment and to see if composite veneer is suitable for your case. Patients that have crowded teeth, cross bite or missing teeth may not be suitable for composite veneer. For these cases the patient might need other dental treatment to fix these problems prior to starting.

Caring for Composite Veneers
Whether you have improved your smile with one tooth or a set of teeth with composite veneers, caring for your composite veneers is simple. Just as your normal teeth, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. This means brushing and flossing twice daily to help remove plaque build up and decay, which in terms extend the longevity of composite veneers. Gentle brushing is also encouraged instead of brushing aggressively, as it can lead to gum recession. Once the gum starts to recede the seam between the veneer and tooth becomes visible and further treatment is required to cover this junction. Also avoiding any food that can chip or crack your teeth can also damage your composite veneer. Make sure your hard food is cut into small bite sizes instead of directly biting into them. To help maintain good oral hygiene please visit us at Parramatta Dentistry every 6 months for your routine check up and clean. Our dentist or oral health therapist will be able to do a thorough teeth cleaning while checking that they are secure and see if there are any visible signs of vulnerability.
