Learn the process.

1. Initial Assessment

Assessment of your aesthetic goals, and your suitability for composite veneers.

2. Teeth Roughening

The polished smooth area of the teeth involved will be roughened to enhance the bonding of the veneers.

3. Composite Application

The composite veneer material is placed on the roughened surface and shaped properly before light-curing it.

4. Finishing & Polishing

The composite veneer is finished then special polishing pastes are applied to provide a natural translucent shine.

A message from Mirage Dental Clinic.

No-prep veneers offer a way to enhance your smile without removing any tooth structure. However, they are not suitable for every case and have their own limitations. Since no tooth structure is removed and an additional layer is added on top of the tooth, the overall appearance of the tooth may appear bulkier and less translucent compared to traditional veneers. This added thickness can also push your lips forward, potentially affecting your speech and creating a lisp with certain sounds that rely on lip positioning.

Steps and care.

Before composite veneers
Maintain oral hygiene and share any concerns or allergies with us.
After composite veneers
Resume normal activities; minor sensitivity may occur but will typically subside quickly.
Veneers Maintenance
Maintain your veneers by brushing twice daily, flossing, and using antibacterial mouthwash. Consider a mouthguard if you grind your teeth, and keep up with regular dental visits and professional cleaning. Reduce consumption of any staining beverage (coffee, tea, juices, colored carbonated drinks, etc...) and clean your teeth after consuming them.
Things to Avoid
Skip ice cubes, hard nuts, popcorn kernels, and sticky treats like taffy and caramels. Avoid smoking as it stains your veneers, teeth and lungs.
