Composite and No-prep Veneers
What Are Composite Veneers?
Composite veneers are a restoration used to correct the appearance of your smile when your teeth are affected by minor dental imperfections. They are made from a composite resin material, which is a mixture of plastic, fine glass, and other materials. They are sometimes referred to as same-day veneers and are less invasive than porcelain veneers when it comes to repairing the quality of your smile.
Placement of Composite Veneers
Getting composite veneers takes just one visit. Minimal preparation of your teeth is required. After the teeth have been repaired, the composite resin material is placed on the teeth and sculpted almost like putty. Once the desired appearance has been achieved, the material is then cured, or hardened, with a special light.

What Are No-prep Veneers?
No-prep veneers are made of porcelain, but they are much thinner than regular porcelain veneers. Because they are so thin, they can be applied over your teeth without having to remove any of your enamel. They provide a seamless, natural-looking restoration that provides treatment for those who are wary about having enamel removed from their teeth.
