Composite is one of the methods designed to makeover the tooth appearance using restorative or adhesives materials. They are made of a substance called composite resin which is essentially the same material used to fill teeth and its use is very popular today.
Types of Dental Composites
A composite veneer is a layer of tooth-colored material that is made and prepared by the dentist, and the color is chosen by the ideas of both patient and the dentist. There are two types of composites: Direct or Indirect composite veneers. Direct veneers can be used in one session by combining veneer composites. Indirect veneers are applied when you want to veneer a small number of your teeth.
The composites used in restorative and cosmetic dental procedures are divided into four general categories: macrophiles, microfibers, hybrid composites, and nanocomposites. Nanocomposites are the best composites because they are treated in one session. In this way, the patient will need only one anesthetic injection. This advantage will save time for both the patient and the treating dentist.

Who should not use composite veneer
People who suffer from dental caries, gum disease, severe dental curvature, etc., should first solve these problems using the other dental methods, then cosmetic dentistry procedures and dental laminates are used to beautify the tooth. In general, people with the following problems cannot be good candidates for dental composites and laminates until the problem is resolved.
severe dental wear.
severe dental disease.
severely crooked tooth.
severe tooth erosion
active gum disease.
very low oral hygiene.
For people with protruded teeth, it is better to use ceramic laminate instead of the dental composite to makeover their smile design. Ceramic tooth laminate thickness is insignificant. Therefore, it is more suitable for people with protruded teeth.
How bonding (dental composite) is placed?
To do this, the dentist first thoroughly cleans the teeth and then scrubs them so that they have a perfectly clean surface for applying the veneer. Then dry the teeth thoroughly to remove any saliva and moisture. After these steps, the porosity is created in the front part of the teeth using acidic materials in order to make the veneer easier to the adhesive to the tooth surface. Finally, a special adhesive is applied to the teeth and composite materials are placed on the teeth.
Matching the color, lines, and thickness of the dental composite with teeth is one of the most important challenges for this type of dental veneer. Dental composites are made of a combination of several materials that are created by particulate chemical compounds called a high-strength filler. In fact, a composite veneer is a dough compound that hardens due to UV radiation at certain wavelengths. After the composite has hardened, it is polished to give it the proper shape and form which depends on the patient’s taste.
Advantages of Dental Composite
it is implemented in one dental session.
it is implemented without manipulating the structure of the enamel.
it is cheaper than dental laminate.
it is easy to repair and replace dental composites.
the composite coating can be made directly in the mouth and does not need to be prepared in a dental laboratory.
Complications of Dental Composite
Possible complications of dental composite include increased sensitivity in the teeth and difficulty in adjusting your new teeth, which can change the size and shape of the teeth. Both of these side effects are usually temporary. Because composite veneers are not a completely natural alternative for teeth, minor discolorations can be detected by close examination.

Dental Composite in Iran
The composite improves the patient’s appearance by using a very simple technique without the need for molding and laboratory to make ceramic veneers. Using dental composites, dentists are able to dramatically change and beautify a patient’s appearance and increase their self-confidence. The best brands of dental composites in Iran are American or Japanese brands. In addition, it differs depending on their costs.
