Composite Resin Veneers

Your smile says a lot about you, and if you are not happy with the way your teeth look, it might be impacting more than just how often you smile. When you feel good about your smile, you exude confidence to others, which can have a positive ripple effect on all areas of your life. That’s why Dr. Ryan Lepore, dentist at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry in Dunedin, FL, provides a wide array of cosmetic dentistry options such as composite resin veneers to enhance your smile.

What are Composite Resin Veneers?

Composite resin veneers are one of the two most common types of dental veneers. They are used to hide imperfections in your teeth such as:

  • Small chips
  • Permanent discoloration or staining
  • Mild tooth misalignment
  • Small gaps

Because the composite resin material cannot fill in large gaps or spaces, it is best suited for minor adjustments to your smile, rather than issues such as large breaks/chips, big gaps between teeth, or lengthening very short teeth. If you are interested in correcting one or more of these issues, other treatments offered at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry such as porcelain veneers or orthodontics may be a better choice.

How composite resin veneers are placed

One of the things patients love most about composite resin veneers is that they can be done in only one visit. After consulting with you to determine whether they are the best option for your individual oral health needs and goals, Dr. Lepore will perform the following steps to place your composite resin veneers:

  1. Remove a modest amount of tooth structure to enable the placement of the veneer without making your tooth look bulky or large; typically, with composite resin veneers, less tooth structure needs to be removed than with porcelain veneers.
  2. Apply the composite resin material, layer by layer, and sculpt it until it has the ideal shape for natural-looking, beautiful results. Each layer is hardened with a special light to cure the material in place.
  3. Polish the veneer for a pearly white smile.

I have never had a dentist or hygienist care so much for me as a person. I have had sensitive teeth my whole life with every other dentist or hygienist ignoring my concerns. Majority of my cleanings HURT. I’ve had major disregard to my personal pain tolerance and lack of really giving AF. BUT Dr. Lapore really took the time to get to know me as a person and listen to my dental concerns. His hygienist Jessica was absolutely phenomenal, I almost fell asleep in the chair! The quality of the staff at Dr Lepore’s office has left me speechless. From the front desk lady, to the girl who checked me out after my visit. I highly highly recommend them! If you’re looking for quality care, to be seen as a person and not just a patient. Dr Lepore and his staff is the place for you!
