There are different types of veneers available and different labs have come up with new techniques to manufacture them, giving them a particular set of properties.
The main types of veneers fall into: composite veneers or porcelain veneers. The main difference being between these two, is the fact that porcelain is a much stronger and durable material than composite. The composite veneers are made out of the same material which is commonly used in white fillings and a composite build up.
Composite veneers can work out to be a much cheaper overall treatment than the porcelain counterparts. The smile will still look beautiful and will blend in with your smile, but the material is not as long lasting or as strong as the porcelains. Porcelain is a much stronger and durable material which as a result, can be made thinner than composites. This means there won’t be as much tooth preparation required (case dependant). To give you an accurate quote to have your teeth veneered, we will need to see you first for a free consultation so we can examine your needs and see how many teeth are required to be veneered, and which type of porcelain will suit you best.
If your not quite happy with the looks of your teeth then veneers could be suitable. If your teeth are slightly crooked, it would be more advisable to go down the orthodontic route instead. To find out your eligibility please do not hesitate to call us and book your free consultation today.
