Dental veneers are cosmetic dental treatments used to today to help patients achieve better looking teeth. They are generally used by cosmetic dentists to improve the look and smile of their patients. Teeth veneers are usually made out of porcelain material and shaped according to the patient’s teeth. They are then placed over the damaged teeth and bonded to ensure a natural looking fit.

A patient can choose from a variety of different styles of veneers. The most common veneer is made from porcelain material. This involves the patient receiving a dental impression of their teeth to be used by the dental lab in creating the shell so that it is custom made to the patient’s needs.
The other choice that patients have is a type called composite veneers. These are generally less expensive compared to the porcelain material and does not involve taking a patient’s teeth impressions. The surface of your teeth will be prepared for the application of the resin material to the surface. This treatment is normally completed in one day and repairs to the composite kind are relatively easy with the re-application of the resin material.
How Are Porcelain Veneers and Composite Veneers Different?
Both of our specialty veneer options can drastically improve the appearance of teeth using different techniques and materials. The main difference between these two options is that porcelain veneers are used for more severe cases of discoloration, malformation or misalignment. Composite veneers are applied layer by layer and molded in the mouth. These veneers are a good option for slight chipping, discoloration and even slight misalignment. The composite veneer process is the only reversible option.
