Types of Veneers
Composite Resin Veneers
Composite Resin Veneers are also referred to as Composite Veneer and are cheaper than the more durable Porcelain ones. Made out of resin or plastic these may last up to seven years but can often chip or break easily, requiring a new set. The good thing about composite Veneer is that no laboratory treatments are necessary, and the results are quicker.
Custom-made to fit your teeth, a porcelain veneer are a great choice as these are made using high-quality hardened ceramic material. A porcelain veneer is extremely strong even in its thinnest form and is less prone to straining or breakages. Their exceptional durability and natural appearance make them a recommended choice.
Apart from these, there are few more veneer options available, and each has distinctive specifications. If you are interested in getting dental veneers, we at Dr Teeth Dental are happy to answer your questions.
Composite Resin or Porcelain. Which ones to choose?
Simplistic and painless, Veneers are quite versatile and require very less maintenance. The type of dental Veneer you select would depend on your overall diagnosis, cost and dental enhancement. It’s a personal choice. You can choose a veneer made of a composite or porcelain material. Each has different levels of durability and lifespan and are both custom-made laminates placed onto the teeth.
How often do Veneers need replacement?
Veneers generally last approximately 8 and 10 years. They do not require any special care other than regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the prosthodontist. If they are properly cared for then they can last much longer.
Can a Veneer Replace a Missing Teeth?
Because a veneer is bonded directly on top of your tooth, it cannot replace missing teeth. A dental implant can replace missing teeth.
