Componeers are an innovative new dental device available at Holly Dental Practice, which combines the functional and aesthetic appeal of composite bonding and veneers, but unlike traditional veneers, Componeers can be fitted in a single session.
What are Componeers?
Componeers are a new type of veneer, what is known as nano-hybrid composite enamel shells, and can be applied to the teeth in a short period of time. Componeers were designed and developed in Switzerland and are pre-fabricated in different shapes, sizes and shades, so patients can choose the bespoke look they want. Componeers can also be customised to suit the needs and preferences of the individual.
Benefits of Componeers
Most people are aware of the benefits of traditional veneers but for some they are not affordable. Componeers provide all the aesthetic benefits without the hefty price tag, with Componeers often costing around half the price of porcelain veneers. Since they can be fitted in a single session, this allows you to enjoy your new smile straightaway. The preparation stage is also much less invasive and tooth tissue is largely left untouched, as the shells are extremely thin at only 0.3mm in thickness.
Componeers are versatile, can be customised for the individual and are easily repaired in the unlikely event that they become chipped.
COMPONEER can help change/repair:
- The shape of your teeth
- Gaps in your smile
- Tooth discolouration
- Severe cavities
- Fractures and/or chipped teeth
- Increased wear
Examples from our Preston surgery
This patient disliked his chipped, discoloured and uneven upper teeth as well as the gaps in between them. He firstly had a tooth whitening treatment with us to improve the colour of his teeth. Componeers where then placed on his front upper six teeth, this procedure was completed in just one afternoon.
This patient disliked her teeth and wanted an improvement in time for her wedding day. This result was achieved by initially whitening her teeth, her missing back teeth were replaced with bridgework before placing Componeers on her front 8 teeth to totally transform her smile. As you can see from her wedding photograph, we achieved an amazing result and she had the confidence to smile on her big day.
"A huge, huge thank you to Andy and Michelle at Holly Dental for all their hard work over the last few months and giving me the most amazing smile for my wedding day!! I had a real fear of dentists before visiting Andy but he put me at ease from the minute I met him. I have had quite a lot of work done and can honestly say i actually looked forward to going in the end.........even the injections didn't hurt!! I would highly recommended Andy to anyone who needs any work doing, both Andy and Michelle are absolutely wonderful!!"
