Composite veneers are a minimally-invasive type of tooth covering made using composite resin. The composite sits on top of your existing teeth, helping to shape the teeth into a more desirable appearance. Composite veneers are ideal for fixing small chips or cracks in the teeth, as you do not need to cover the entire tooth with resin.
To get your teeth ready for composite application, only light preparation is needed. The dentist will then apply an adhesive glue to help the resin stick to your teeth. Once the resin is applied, it will be sculpted into the desired shape, and polished to a high shine finish.
Composite veneers can last anywhere from 5 to 7 years. However, this is dependent on your own habits as well as how much composite was used on your teeth.
