What are the differences between ceramic veneers and composite veneers?

A composite resin veneer is a quicker and cheaper veneer solution compared to porcelain veneers, but we always make our patients aware of the pros and cons of the different types of veneer materials.

Whilst composite veneers are often a more affordable solution for many; they are often not as ‘good looking’ or deliver the treatment life that porcelain veneers do with composite usually lasting 4 – 6 years before slowly losing their shine and colour.

Composite veneers can usually be completed within one appointment whilst porcelain veneers is usually a two-appointment procedure, depending upon your situation.

If you are considering veneers the best way to discover the difference between the two types of veneers and their outcomes for your circumstances is to call us to book an initial consultation or to discuss any questions you have with our knowledgeable and helpful reception staff.

Caring for your veneers is just like taking care of your natural teeth. Maintaining a healthy regimen of regular flossing, active maintenance visits with us, and brushing with a soft toothbrush is the foundation of excellent veneer care. If you grind your teeth, wearing a nightguard will protect your veneers.
