FAQ: Composite Veneers – All Your Questions Answered

Composite Veneers


If you are thinking of having composite veneers applied to your teeth, you will be sure to have many questions. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about composite veneers.

What Are Composite Veneers?

A composite resin is applied directly onto teeth that are irregular, worn, discoloured or damaged.  It then hardens and is polished to improve their shape, colour and appearance. Thereby improving the overall look of teeth and smile.

Am I A Good Candidate For Composite Veneers?

If you have relatively minor cosmetic imperfections, teeth that are stained, discoloured or irregular, plenty of tooth enamel and overall good oral health, then you are the ideal candidate for composite veneers. Your cosmetic dentist will assess your teeth and give you the most appropriate advice.

Composite veneers will leave you with healthy looking, straight, regular pearly white teeth.

What Are They Made Of?

These dental cements are made of organic polymer resins that have been developed to closely replicate the natural, translucent appearance of teeth.

Do Composite Veneers Pose Any Health Risks?

No, great care has been taken in developing these products.  While they are still a relatively new product, they have been thoroughly tested. They are safe and have been used on millions of people to improve the appearance of their teeth and keep their mouths healthy.

Do Composite Veneers Make Your Teeth Bigger?

Well-planned composite veneer application will not make your teeth look bigger. They are used to correct cosmetic imperfections and are applied in a sheer layer. The exception to this would be where the tooth needs to be made larger to improve its natural look in your mouth.

Are Composite Veneers Good Value For Money?

Yes, composite veneers are one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Costs will vary according to your requirements. By following the simple care and maintenance instructions you will be able to enjoy the benefits of this procedure for many years to come. Do remember that this would be considered cosmetic dentistry and may not be covered by your medical or dental insurance.
