UVeneers: A New Smile in One Appointment

UVeneers are a direct composite veneer template procedure that can allow us to create beautiful, natural-looking veneers in one visit. The veneers are bonded directly to your teeth. They are considered “additive” dentistry since none or minimal reduction of tooth structure is needed. Remember, once enamel is lost, it doesn’t grow back.

  • Reversible as usually none or minimal tooth reduction of healthy tooth structure is done
  • It is a very conservative procedure
  • It is a relatively simple procedure and the change in your smile is immediate
  • Easily repairable when compared to porcelain veneers
  • Composite veneers normally last for 3-5 years on average but with proper care can last even more
  • The key to longevity is good oral hygiene and routine dental checkups
  • The shine on UVeneers lasts. It continues to look like a natural tooth. The template used creates an oxygen barrier that makes the surface harder and less prone to wear and stain
  • Composite veneers can stain more easily than porcelain veneers
  • They may not last as long as porcelain veneers
  • But since they are made of composite, you can have them resurfaced versus having them redone if they get stained or chipped
  • Aesthetically they don’t replace porcelain veneers
  • They may not work with severely crooked teeth
  • They are created and bonded in the mouth which does not allow patients as much involvement in the design of the smile

The patient presented with the two front teeth chipped and tilted in.

UVeneers were placed on the two front teeth to fill in the chips and gap along with bringing the teeth more in alignment with the curvature of the mouth.
