What is the difference between porcelain and composite resin veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are made of ultra-thin ceramic porcelain that is permanently bonded to your natural tooth enamel. Veneers are a thin cover of handcrafted and machine milled ceramics which are bonded into a natural tooth structure. The result is a highly aesthetic smile designed to suit all your facial features. Dental Lounge uses the Digital Smile Design in all veneer cases, both in-house and lab created. This allows patients to see the results they can expect, even before beginning treatment.[expander_maker id=”1″ more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]
They are commonly placed on the front surface of your prepped, frontal tooth to enhance your teeth for structural and cosmetic purposes.
Porcelain veneers provide a more natural look, have superior durability and are highly stain resistant.
Composite Veneers (also known as bond veneers, direct veneers, chair-side veneers or resin) are specifically crafted and bonded to your tooth enamel. They are made up of composite resin and shaped directly by our dentists.
Composite veneers are a minimally invasive procedure aimed to provide immediate results. The procedure is generally simpler, usually costs less and requires less wait time. However, composite veneers do not last as long as porcelain, and are not stain resistant.[/expander_maker]
