Composite Resin Veneers


Like all veneers, composite resin veneers are used to improve the overall appearance of teeth by changing their shape and color. Composite resin veneers are ideal for quickly and effectively treating multiple cosmetic dental issues including stained teeth, crooked teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or to fill in gaps between existing teeth.

Smile Make Over

What is a Smile Makeover?

Smile makeovers are a form of cosmetic dentistry designed to restore your smile and improve your appearance. They are primarily used to treat crooked, uneven, discolored, chipped, fractured, or missing teeth. Smile makeovers are also used to treat gaps between teeth. While smile makeovers are effective for fixing common cosmetic issues, your dentist may recommend Invisalign or braces as an alternative to correcting a bite problem.

Why Choose a Smile Makeover?

Because a beautiful smile is an important asset, many people avoid showing their teeth because they dread not having the “perfect” smile” or a slightly more natural look. As an individual, your smile goals may range from just a small improvement in appearance to a more significant adjustment. At Darwin Smiles, we want to help you find the best treatment option for your special circumstances! We aim to choose solutions which are the most medically suited to your mouth and offer you the least invasive and most long-term solution to your concerns.

There are several questions you can ask yourself are when deciding whether or not to choose a smile makeover:

Are your teeth as white as you want?
Are any teeth chipped, cracked, or worn?
Does your smile have a gummy appearance?
Do your teeth seem too large or small?
Are you okay with the alignment and spacing of your teeth?
If you have any of these problems, you’re a great candidate for a smile makeover from Complete Dental Care of Richmond!

What Does a Smile Makeover Correct?

Smile makeovers utilise a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to make you feel more confident and better looking. When you book a smile makeover consultation at Darwin Smiles your dentist will suggest a variety of procedures to make you feel more confident and better looking while improving your dental health, including the following:

Matching Tooth Colour: Tooth colour and shading are important to consider before procedures like porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding, and dental implants. Teeth whitening is often recommended as a way to fix discolored teeth. Alignment and Spacing: Crooked, overlapping, or gapped teeth can be straightened and aligned, when necessary, through orthodontics, Invisalign® or improved with veneers.

Replacing Missing Teeth: One or more missing teeth may negatively impact your appearance, affect your bite, and increase your risk for tooth decay, making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial aesthetics. You can replace missing teeth via dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures.

Types of Smile Makeover Treatments

After consultation, your dentist will recommend one or several cosmetic dentistry procedures to correct your smile’s issues, while making the best possible decision for your long-term dental health. The range of options available to help you include the following:

Dental Veneers: Patients with severely stained or damaged teeth may use dental veneers to improve their smile. They close gaps in between teeth, even out tooth length, remove stains, cracks and chips.

Dental Crowns: When teeth are severely damaged, a dental crown is a likely solution. Made with a ceramic or porcelain material, a crown works by surrounding the entire tooth, which protects the natural tooth while improving its appearance. Like dental crowns, veneers help close gaps, eliminate stains, and remove cracks or chips.

Dental Implants: Implants are an excellent way to restore missing teeth because, once the procedure is completed, you can enjoy all of your favorite activities and foods without worrying about the tooth becoming loose or falling out. In this procedure, a metal post is implanted under the gums and secured to the jawbone to replace missing teeth.

Teeth Whitening: Whitening is a treatment for brightening teeth that have yellowed and stained with age. It also is a common treatment to brighten teeth that have dulled from eating foods that are artificially colored or tarnished from drinking coffee, tea, or wine. Whitening is also used to restore teeth that have been discolored from smoking and plaque buildup. If you want a smile that sparkles, teeth whitening can help!

Invisalign® (via referral to an orthodontist): If you're ready to straighten your teeth, you may feel that braces are your only option. That is no longer always the case! Invisalign® is a non-intrusive alternative to braces which may be applicable, depending on your bite. You just pop the tray in and remove it when needed, unlike braces which cannot be removed.
