Composite Veneer VS Porcelain Veneer

07 January 2023

If you are considering getting veneers to improve the appearance of your teeth, you may be wondering what the difference is between composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Here is a comparison of the two types of veneers:

Composite veneers:

  • Made of a composite resin material that is applied directly to the surface of the tooth
  • Can be placed in a single office visit
  • Less expensive than porcelain veneers
  • Can be repaired or adjusted easily
  • May not be as durable as porcelain veneers and may need to be replaced sooner
  • Can be less resistant to staining than porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers:

  • Made of a thin shell of porcelain that is custom-made to fit over the front surface of the tooth
  • Typically require two office visits (one to prepare the tooth and take an impression, and another to place the veneer)
  • More expensive than composite veneers
  • Cannot be easily repaired or adjusted once they are placed
  • More durable than composite veneers and may last longer
  • More resistant to staining than composite veneers

Which type of veneer is right for you will depend on your individual needs and budget. Your dentist can help you weigh the pros and cons of each type and recommend the best option for you. Keep in mind that veneers are a long-term investment in your oral health and appearance, so it is important to choose the option that will best meet your needs and goals.
