How Are Composite Veneers Applied?

The process of composite veneers is done instantly, it’s minimally invasive and doesn’t require local anaesthetic. For 4 composite veneers, it usually takes about 3 hours. Here is a breakdown of how composite veneers are applied:

  1. The surface of the teeth are roughened
  2. The teeth are then cleaned with a ‘tooth shampoo’ called etch
  3. A super strong glue is applied onto the teeth
  4. Then the composite material goes on to the tooth in small increments and gets shaped to make it look like a beautiful, natural-looking tooth
  5. Finally, the composite veneer is polished with special polishing stones, discs and a fine diamond polishing paste so that the veneer looks oh-so-pretty
