Direct Composite Resin Veneers are a non-invasive treatment option used to improve the color, appearance, shape, proportions, strength, and function of a single tooth or of an entire smile. It can also be used to treat symptoms of cold sensitivity.
The surface of natural teeth are cleaned, polished, and prepared with a fine powdered air- abrasion to allow the material to bond to the tooth. A composite resin is directly bonded to the surfaces of the tooth, and then shaped and polished to a beautiful and natural-looking luster.
