The Benefits of Replacing Old Veneers
Pros and Cons of Composite Veneers
If you are considering veneers then composite veneers are an affordable cost compromise for some people.
Naturally with every compromise comes a downside and when considering composite tooth veneers compared to porcelain veneers the downside is their durability.
In terms of the appearance of composite veneers compared to porcelain, whilst the porcelain version of the veneer will always look more natural, composite veneers can also look quite attractive as well.
Composite vs Porcelain Veneers: Brisbane Dental Case Study
In the case of this patient, she had previously been treated elsewhere with composite veneers to improve the shape and colour of her front teeth.
These composite veneers were not made to a natural shape and were a flat, lifeless, grey colour.
Porcelain veneers are a lot more life-like
After going through the options, this patient opted to have all her old composite veneers removed and replaced with 6 porcelain veneers.
These six porcelain veneers had a very life-like appearance with the transparency similar to natural teeth as well as a more natural shape. To help these new porcelain veneers appear as a more natural part of this patient’s smile we also matched the bottom line of the veneers to her lower lip smile line.
