Composite veneers are an excellent alternative to porcelain veneers.
They require less removal of the tooth than porcelain veneers, and in most cases no removal of tooth structure at all. Control of the final appearance is in the hands of the dentist as they are carefully layered with composite material onto the patient’s teeth.
Typically, the end result is achieved over one appointment.
They are the treatment of choice in younger patients where porcelain veneers are not recommended. They can also be used as a diagnostic tool to ensure that porcelain veneers will work for a patient. Modern composite materials are strong, but not stronger than natural teeth and not as stain resistant as porcelain materials. These restorations require slightly more maintenance and regular visits to the hygienist to keep them looking polished.
If you’ve lost a tooth but are not entirely ready to commit to a dental implant, a dental bridge is your next best-fixed option for single or multiple teeth. A dental bridge spans the gap that a missing tooth creates and attaches to your natural teeth on either side. The bridge includes an artificial tooth which is seamlessly anchored to your existing teeth for proper fit and alignment. The teeth adjacent to the artificial tooth require dental crowns to provide adequate support. Once the restorations are ready, the bridge with the artificial tooth is attached to the crowned teeth. Dental bridges can also be attached to dental implants instead of adjacent natural teeth.
