The closest conservative cosmetic alternative to porcelain veneers is composite resin. Composite is a tooth-coloured filling material that may be used to form dental veneers. Composites have to be bonded to the tooth surface. Composite Bonding is among least invasive of all cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding is the application of a tooth coloured resin called composite to fix the shape or colour of your tooth. Composite bonding can repair chips, fractures, decay and discoloured teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require to remove a large amount of healthy tooth structure, composites can be applied in a single office visit with minimal tooth removal.
What are the Main Benefits of Composite?
- Composite bonding is minimally invasive (minimal amount of healthy tooth reduction is required)
- Immediate results – Composite bonding can often be accomplished in one visit.
- Easily repairable
