Chairside Veneers ( Composite Veneers)
Composite Resin Veneers

|Applied in a single visit||More prone to staining|
Composite Resin Veneers Procedure Process
Composite resin veneers are accomplished in one visit. Unlike porcelain veneers, which require a mold of the natural teeth, the dentist sculpts resin veneers into the desired shape. An adequate amount of tooth enamel is first removed to allow for the placement of the composite resin. Bonding agent is applied, and the composite resin is then added, light cured, and polished. If composite resin veneers are damaged, the dentist can easily touch them up to remove any noticeable defect.
