Composite Veneers

One of the most unique procedures done by Dr. Lilya Horowitz is composite bonding or veneers. While everyone is not a candidate for this, it is superior to getting traditional veneers in many ways.

When having porcelain veneers placed on your teeth, a significant amount of tooth structure is needed to be removed in order to create room for the ceramics. This will often involve anesthesia (shots) for pain as well as weeks or months wearing temporary veneers while the final ceramics are being created.

The difference with composite veneers is that the resin material is added directly onto your teeth. It can be layered on in a way that does not require removing existing enamel , which will lead to better long term preservation of tooth structure. This procedure is great for patients of any age, but it is particularly beneficial on young patients like the one picture above, who had recently completed orthodontic treatment but still has spacing between her teeth since they were naturally small in shape.
