Composite resin veneers are a porcelain alternative derived from translucent resin and meticulously sculpted and hardened by your dentist, typically in a single appointment. If you have worn, chipped, or damaged teeth, composite resin can be directly sculpted onto the teeth for exponential results. Composites can whiten your smile.
