Composite Resin Veneers
These can usually be done in one dental visit. The composite resin is applied one layer at a time until the desired shape and appearance is achieved. These are less costly than porcelain veneers and any chips or cracks can be repaired. The disadvantage of composite resin veneers is that this material is more likely to stain and may need “retouching” or redoing more frequently.
These are custom made and bonded onto the front of the tooth. As a material porcelain is very durable. It looks very “life-like” and is more resistant to staining than composite resin. Porcelain veneers generally require 2-3 dental visits, as the veneers are custom made in a laboratory by a technician.
Other things to know about veneers
Veneers will not correct the appearance of major misalignments in teeth or any bite issues.
To be a candidate for veneers your teeth and gums must be healthy. Any decay or gum disease must be treated prior to the attachment of veneers.
If you clench or grind your teeth, then a thorough assessment of the bite should be carried out and you may be advised to wear a protective mouthguard at night to protect your veneers.
