Fix smile imperfections with versatile Composite Veneers
Most of us were born with naturally beautiful smiles. With brilliant pearly whites, we tend to smile more often, and research has shown that there are many health benefits of smiling, such as a strengthened immune system, reduced stress, and a longer lifespan. Unfortunately, most of us lose some of the natural sparkle to our smile as we grow older, and in some cases, teeth can become stained or damaged in unsightly ways. When this happens, it may be time to start considering composite veneers.
At Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, Florida, we offer composite dental veneers that are versatile in fixing many cosmetic imperfections to restore the sparkle to your smile.
Composite veneers: For when you need a faster smile transformation
Porcelain veneers are a great option for fixing smile imperfections. However, sometimes you may want a faster smile transformation. The good news is that Dr. Milton Ruiz can perform direct restorations “chairside” and place composite veneers on your teeth in one visit.
Composite veneers are composed of composite resin, the same strong material used for cosmetic bonding and tooth-colored fillings. During the veneers procedure, the composite resin material is placed onto a tooth that has been prepared and is then hardened (or cured) with a special light. Typically, the composite material is used to conceal imperfections such as chipped or cracked teeth and other concerns impacting your smile.
How long do composite veneers last?
Composite veneers aren’t as durable as porcelain veneers — which have a lifespan of about 10 to 15 years — but they are an excellent immediate alternative. These veneers are also much more economical and can last between five and seven years with proper care.
To make your composite veneers last as long as possible, embrace a regular brushing routine and be sure to use a non-abrasive toothpaste. Also, avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects. Another thing you can do to keep your composite veneers looking beautiful for years to come is to steer clear of beverages that can stain your teeth.
