Veneers are a great way at improving the overall look of your teeth and effectively, smile. They are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth to greatly improve every cosmetic aspect and appearance of your teeth. They are carefully made to the exact specification that the patient wants.
The difference relating to these two types of veneers is based on the materials used. Composite is the same material used in composite white filings. Porcelain is a stronger material, and is more commonly used in dental crowns.
The composite veneers are a cheaper material than the porcelain counterparts, and will have a lower price to the patient. Our composite veneers start from £120 per tooth. Our porcelain veneers are made out of a much stronger and durable material, and they start from £550 per tooth. When it comes to porcelain veneers there are several different types of manufacturers that are able to produce them. The main differences in these types of veneers, is they way they are manufactured and the benefits that are gained from these techniques.
This is a case dependant question. The reason being, is that there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account when planning your case. For example, how many teeth are shown when you smile. If you have a broad smile which shows off a lot of your teeth, you will need more veneers to ensure that they cover the full smile. If you don’t have enough to cover your smile, it can lead to a strange looking smile and defeat the overall objective you started out with of improving the aesthetics of the smile.
