Direct resin veneers, previously known as dental bonding, is a procedure that can immediately improve a patient’s smile. To prepare your teeth for treatment, a small amount of enamel will be removed to ensure that the direct resin veneers don’t look unnatural or bulky. Next, Dr. Naz will apply an enamel-like composite material to the surface of your teeth. She will then shape and sculpt the composite to create uniformity and enhance tooth shape and color.
This procedure is ideal for patients with stained and discolored teeth that cannot be resolved with whitening or those who have a few misaligned teeth but don’t wish to go through orthodontic treatment. It is also a good option for patients who have disproportion front teeth (issues with tooth size and shape).
During your cosmetic consultation, we will explain the limitations of direct resin veneers and describe how we will be able to improve your smile using this procedure. Patients are almost always amazed at the possibility of an immediate transformation. Your appointment for direct resin veneers will feel the same as getting a filling. Depending on the number of your teeth being treated, your appointment will likely last anywhere between 1-3 hours.
