Porcelain Veneers are the most durable option and offer the best esthetic results. Impressions of the patient’s teeth are done and the the mold is sent to lab for fabrication of the veneers. A good set of veneers can last up to 15 years or more depending on care. Porcelain is resistant to staining which is an amazing benefit since most people want to avoid having to do whitening treatments. The shine of porcelain is what is most similar to enamel and therefore the ideal material for veneers.
There are times when a unique type of veneer can be done which allows for minimal reduction of tooth structure. These veneers are called Lumeneers. They are conservative porcelain veneers, which are as thin as a contact lens. The fact that the tooth barely has to be prepared makes the procedure somewhat reversible. They are meant for small imperfections and are also resistant to stains.
Composite Veneers can be done usually just one visit. On occasion, more than one visit may be required, especially for occlusal or interproximal adjustments. Composite veneers are usually done to correct minor aesthetic concerns such as a chipped tooth or a small gap. It usually requires no tooth structure reduction or anesthesia, which makes this procedure completely pain free. If any of them break, it can be repaired or replaced which is a great benefit. Composite Veneers offer a more budget-friendly approach to Smile Design treatment. If they become stained, they can be polished. Composite can also last a long time if the patient maintains a good oral hygiene regiment.
Composite veneers serve as a lower-cost alternative to porcelain veneers. These are made from a composite resin that can be colored to match the natural look of your tooth. Composite veneers require less preparation than porcelain and can usually be installed in a single visit. These factors make it a favorable option for younger patients, however, due to the materials used they tend to have a shorter lifespan.
This variation of veneers has the same functional benefits as porcelain veneers in that they can cover up aesthetic imperfections including misshapen teeth, discolorations, and the chipping. Although more budget-friendly, composite veneers are also more susceptible to common wear-and-tear.
