The choice to have dental veneers treatment has only increased in popularity over the last couple of decades. This can not only be chalked up to the extensive advancements that have been made in cosmetic dentistry over time but also has a lot to do with the social implications that are associated with having a beautiful and healthy smile. Since there also happen to be a number of veneer options that are suitable for all budgets, it seems people now, more than ever, are focused on improving their smile overall. So let’s uncover a bit more about this process in order to discover whether it is a good option for you.

What Is A ‘Veneer’?

Dental veneers are thin shells made of materials that are tooth-colored (porcelain or composite resin) that are tailor-made to cover the existing tooth and improve the overall appearance of a smile.This dental procedure is most often used in order to remedy smiles that are stained, chipped, uneven, broken, or crooked to give the appearance of a seemingly flawless smile.

Composite Veneers

For the most part, composite veneers are considerably less costly than their alternative. They also tend to take less time to complete the treatment. Composite veneers are first designed, sculpted, and applied all in the same visit to your dental office. Made of the same material that is used to make up white fillings, this type veneer is most commonly recommended for people who have a smile that slightly crooked or who have a cracked/chipped tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

The majority of dentists will, however, recommend that you have porcelain veneers put on your teeth, rather than composite. If you want to most positive and dramatic change possible to your smile, this is the right option for you. While they do cost more, they are made of much higher quality material and required a more extensive preparation that also includes a custom fitting. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to the most common agents that stain teeth like coffee, wine, and smoking.
