Are you looking to perfect your smile or correct a dental insecurity? If you have done any research on cosmetic dentistry, you’ve likely heard of dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of the tooth, covering it to improve its appearance. The Dental Lounge is a top provider of dental veneers in Pompano Beach with our attention to detail and talented dental team.
Common Types Of Dental Veneers
When we look at dental veneers, the most common types you’ll see are composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Each type has its own advantages and drawbacks, so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of both and have a consultation with your dentist to figure out which will be best for you.
As we can gather from their name, porcelain veneers are thin veneers made from porcelain off-site using dental impressions made by your dentist. These are affixed to the outer part of the tooth, either matching or whitening the tooth’s natural color.
Porcelain veneers are custom made for a natural appearance from a durable porcelain and are the longer-lasting option in terms of veneers. Porcelain veneers also do not stain like composite veneers.
Composite veneers are the quicker, less expensive veneer option. Composite veneers are made from a composite resin material and can be applied either directly to the teeth in the dentist’s chair or shaped by the dentist during your consultation before being affixed to your teeth.
Composite veneers are minimally invasive and take much less time than porcelain veneers. They can improve the appearance of misshapen, discolored teeth, as well as any other perceived aesthetic defects. Composite veneers can be applied in just one visit, a huge plus to anyone with a busy schedule!
However, the resin material is notably weaker than porcelain and is prone to chipping more often. Because it is less durable. Composite veneers tend to need replacing more frequently than porcelain ones.
