Dental veneers are very thin, custom-made shells that are added to the front of a tooth to mask its colour, shape, or positioning in the mouth. Once affixed, veneers appear natural-looking and perfectly complement facial features.
Improve the aesthetics of your smile with dental veneers
The two types of veneers are either porcelain or composite resin. The primary difference lies in the application, with porcelain veneers bonded to the tooth and composite veneers applied to the existing tooth, a layer at a time. The final outcome of veneers guarantees a realistic appearance.
Types of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of custom handmade porcelain that are bonded to the facial surface of the tooth. They are natural, durable, and strong. Veneers appear and feel just like your teeth, with a translucency that mimics the true colours of natural teeth.
Veneers can last well over ten years and will resist staining over time. Porcelain veneers have helped people achieve the smile they have always dreamed of, giving them newfound confidence and a smile, they just can’t wait to show off.
Cosmetic composite veneers can often be a fantastic affordable alternative to Porcelain veneers, providing a more affordable alternative. Cosmetic composite resin veneers can be used in low-stress situations and where minimal adjustments are required such as to correct minor staining, chipping or even crowding or crossed over teeth.
Cosmetic composite resins do not require as much tooth preparation as their porcelain counterparts and is a conservative choice. However, their strength and longevity are limited due to their minimal size and over time will chip and dull in appearance.
