What Is a Resin Veneer?
Composite veneers are a minimally invasive tooth covering made of natural-looking resin. The veneers sit on top of your natural teeth to improve their shape, color, and overall appearance and give you a dazzling Hollywood smile. This solution is ideal for fixing decayed and stained teeth and small chips, cracks, or gaps.
What Is the Difference Between Resin and Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers come in two materials: composite resin and porcelain.
A dental lab creates porcelain veneers using impressions of your teeth, which a cosmetic dentist then bonds to your teeth. This lengthy treatment requires multiple visits to the dentist’s office. You will also have to wear temporary veneers in between.
A dental lab does not make composite veneers. In most cases, your dentist sculpts them directly onto your teeth from scratch, but at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, we scan your teeth and 3D print resin veneers. It is a more accurate process to get veneers perfectly fitted to your teeth. Using a high-intensity light, the cosmetic dentist cures every layer, then polishes each to perfection.
The best thing about composite veneers? They deliver permanent smile restoration in a day. Unlike porcelain veneers, your dentist can complete your resin veneers in a single visit. One day at the dentist can give you years of joy and confidence.
How Long Do Resin Veneers Last?
You can enjoy your composite veneers and beautiful, natural-looking smile with proper care for up to a decade.
5 Benefits of Resin Veneers
Here are five reasons why composite veneers make an excellent investment in your smile:
1. They Are Affordable
Health insurance doesn’t usually cover veneers, so you may need to pay out of pocket for whatever type of veneer you choose. That said, composite veneers are significantly more budget-friendly than their porcelain counterparts.
2. They Are Extremely Versatile
Composite resin veneers don’t need to envelop the whole tooth with resin.
Resin veneers are an excellent choice for concealing various imperfections and creating customized solutions for your smile needs, from acting as dental fillings and covering stains to patching up tiny cracks, chips, and gaps in your teeth.
3. They Look Fantastic
Another advantage of composite resin is that your dentist can customize its shape and color to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. If you want to improve your smile, you could also go a few shades lighter for a whitening yet natural-looking effect — the choice is yours!
4. They Are Super Easy To Place
With composite resin, there’s no waiting for the dental lab to create your veneers. You don’t have to visit the dentist’s office multiple times, either. Your dentist can apply, shape, cure, and polish the resin in a single dental appointment.
Composite veneers require less preparation of the tooth surface than porcelain resins. The material creates a strong bond with the natural tooth with minimal drilling, which not only saves time but also helps preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
5. They Decrease Tooth Sensitivity
If your enamel is worn or damaged, you may experience tooth sensitivity and sudden acute pain when you consume hot, cold, or sweet food and drinks. Composite resin helps protect your enamel and decreases or eliminates tooth sensitivity by adding an insulating layer over your natural teeth.
