Veneers are either made with the materials composite or porcelain. When you decide to have dental veneers fitted, decide on the type of material that will suite your needs.
This is the most common type of veneers because of its impressive results. Porcelain veneers help those who want to see drastic improvements in the appearance of their teeth. They are effective in improving tough stains, discoloration, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, and uneven teeth. Porcelain veneers have a very natural finish and are more stain resistant than composite veneers.
Composite veneers are made using a composite resin. They are a good for those who want to see some change in color, shape and size of their teeth. Composite veneers can be fitted in a single appointment. The dentist can even make the veneers directly on prepared teeth. The veneers will look like natural teeth once they are smoothed and polished. Composite veneers are cheaper and a good option for those who do not require drastic improvements on their teeth. However, composite veneers can discolor over time and will require areplacement.
