What are composite veneers?
Composite veneers are a thin layer of high-quality filling material applied directly to the visible surfaces of the teeth. Treatment with composite veneers is a highly interactive, collaborative process by which you will workshop with Dr Rick to mould your smile into one you can wear with confidence, and suits your unique functional environment.
Do you need composite veneers?
Composite veneers are a suitable treatment option for clients with minor cosmetic concerns. If you’re in search of a slight improvement to the colour, shape or alignment of the teeth, you may be suitable for composite veneers.
Typical treatment journey
Number of appointments required: 5
Dr Rick and the TT Team will discuss your smile goals while educating and informing you of the necessary preparations and requirements that different treatments carry.
2. Induction & Clean
The team will take a full set of diagnostic records so you and Dr Rick can get a clear picture of your unique oral environment. By the end of this appointment, Dr Rick will be able to assess your suitability for composite veneers and tailor your treatment plan to achieve your smile goals. You will receive a professional clean to start your dental journey in a hygienic and healthy environment.
3. Composite veneer placement
Teeth are cleaned and prepared as necessary. Based on the smile goals discussed, Dr Rick will then place and shape the composite resin, ensuring maximum compatibility with your tooth anatomy, bite, cleanability and gum health. You walk out with your new smile!
4. Workshop 1 (1 week later)
After you’ve had the opportunity to live in your new smile for a week, Dr Rick will spend one hour reviewing, tweaking and polishing your veneers to your specifications. The goal of this appointment is to ensure you LOVE your new smile. If no adjustments are made, the veneers are polished to perfection to give you our signature Tailored Teeth twinkle.
5. Workshop 2 (1 month later)
It’s now time for your body to let us know if it loves your new smile as much as you do! During this appointment, the veneers will be reassessed for any signs of early wear and fatigue. Areas under excessive force will be adjusted to minimise the chance of complications over the lifetime of the veneers.
