The two most commonly used materials in the process of veneer fabrication are composite resin and porcelain, and both are popularly used in cosmetic dentistry to transform your smile to be more aesthetically pleasing. Veneers with composite resin are called Composite Laminates and are comparatively cost effective.
It is a quick procedure- typically the same day-treatment, and there is no reshaping of the actual tooth involved. The prepping is minimal and the process is reversible. These Composite Laminates are reconstructions that aim to correct any visual abnormalities of your tooth, such as discolouration and esthetic deficiencies. Composite Laminates are a form of direct laminates and the reconstruction is applied directly on a prepped tooth surface with the composite resin material.
Not only is the procedure minimally invasive, but the finish is very natural and tooth-like, barely detectable to others. The treatment has been developed for advanced esthetic problems pertinent to the front teeth. Composite Laminates can be used to fix erosions and abrasions, coronal fractures, diastemas, rotated teeth, tooth discolouration, discoloured restorations, congenital/acquired malformations like peg lateral incisors, etc.
