    Getting Composite Veneers – What does it involve?

    Getting Composite Veneers – What does it involve?

    Here at Thurmaston Dental, we provide Future Veneers and Edelweiss Direct Veneers. The question we get asked the most is what are composite veneers and what does it involve?

    Many people have imperfection with their teeth whether it’s gaps, chips, slight wonkiness, or uneven surfaces, all of which can be fixed with veneers. Having a perfect simple can do wonders to people’s smiles and people become more confident.

    There are many different types of veneers so how do you know what the difference is or which are right for you. At Thurmaston Dental, our dentists will need you see individual patients to find the best solutions for them.


    What are Edelweiss Direct Veneers & Future Veneers?

    With Edelweiss Direct Veneers there are no impressions needed and only one appointment needed. There will be minimal tooth preparation is required in some cases. These veneers come in different sizes and can adapt to the natural shape of your teeth.

    The process of applying Edelweiss Direct Veneers can be done in one appointment. Teeth need to be relatively straight and aligned for these veneers to work and some tooth preparation is required. Edelweiss Direct Veneers and other composite veneers work better on smaller teeth.

    As with all veneers, they don’t last forever. Composite veneers last between 3 and 5 years, after this time you will need them replacing. Porcelain veneers need replacing every 10 years, yes these last longer, and however, they are more expensive and take longer to create.

    With future veneers there is no need to remove any existing tooth; they can simply be placed on top. The tooth’s enamel will not be affected and the healthy structure of the tooth remains. Getting future veneers is a pain-free process with no surgical removing of any teeth the procedure can be carried out without too much difficulty. Unlike most veneers, Future Veneers can be reversed so if any work on your teeth is needed, it can be done without too much trouble.


    Do veneers damage your teeth?

    No, is the simple answer. Veneers will not damage your teeth, however, they do need replacing and usually, you can’t stop having veneers once you’ve started. Veneers aren’t suitable for people who have gum disease and if you grind your teeth a gum shield will need to be provided. Another disadvantage is that you can still develop decay underneath the veneer if you do not clean your teeth properly or maintain good oral health, if this occurs you will need to have the veneer removed.

    If you have any questions regarding veneers or need to book an appointment, get in touch with our friendly team here at Thurmaston Dental and we will be happy to answer your queries.
