Uveneer is a type of direct composite veneer used to improve the aesthetics of your smile. The tooth-shaded composite material is sculpted directly on the surface of your teeth, in contrast to traditional porcelain veneers, which are made in an off-site lab.
To create your composite veneers, Dr. Radu will press the translucent Uveneer template over the composite that has been laid on the tooth. The template is removed after the material has cured with a high-intensity light.
Uveneer creates composite veneers that are contoured and shiny like natural teeth, while reducing the time it takes to achieve optimal results. Uveneer composite veneers typically require minimal preparations, no molds, and no temporaries, so you can get the smile you’ve always wanted in just one visit!
Uveneer can be used for all composite veneer applications, for one or multiple teeth, to correct a variety of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Diastemas (gapped teeth)
- Slightly crooked or misshaped teeth
- Caries restoration
Taking Care of Your New Smile
For the best, longest-lasting results, you’ll need to follow our recommendations for proper oral hygiene, as well as avoiding habits that could damage your restorations. Brush at least twice a day, floss once a day, and schedule regular visits to our office for routine exams and cleanings. Avoid biting your fingernails and chewing on hard objects, since direct composite bonding materials can be prone to chipping.
