Composite resin veneers can be a good option for many people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. They can be used to address a variety of cosmetic dental issues, including:
1. Chipped or broken teeth
2. Gaps or spaces between teeth
3. Discoloured or stained teeth
4. Misshapen or uneven teeth
5. Slightly crooked teeth
It’s important to keep in mind that composite resin veneers are not suitable for everyone. In order to determine if composite resin veneers are a good option for you, your dentist at Sandgate Bayside Dental will need to evaluate your overall oral health, including your teeth and gums, and discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations.
It’s also important to note that while composite resin veneers are a less invasive option than traditional porcelain veneers, they still require the removal of some of the natural tooth structure. We will be able to advise you on whether composite resin
veneers are a good choice for you and whether they are likely to achieve the desired results.
In general, composite resin veneers are considered safe and pose minimal health risks when performed by a qualified dental professional.
However, as with any dental procedure, there are some potential side effects and risks that should be taken into consideration. These may include:
- Tooth sensitivity: Composite resin veneers can cause temporary tooth sensitivity, especially if the tooth enamel has been removed.
- Allergic reactions: In rare cases, patients may have an allergic reaction to the materials used in the veneers.
- Staining or discoloration: Composite resin veneers can become stained or discolored over time, especially if the patient smokes or drinks staining liquids such as coffee or tea.
- Chipping or breaking: Although composite resin veneers are durable, they can still chip or break if they are subjected to excessive force or stress.
