Composite Veneers

Difference Between Composite and Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of dental-grade porcelain and placed over the outer surface of the tooth. On the other hand, composite veneers are dental-grade composite resin adhered to the tooth’s outer surface. Both are made to match the color of your teeth and enhance your smile.

Time: Composite veneers can be applied to the teeth in the same visit. While porcelain veneers usually require two visits. The first one to remove a very thin layer of your teeth and place temporary veneers. The second one to bond your porcelain veneers with cement.

Durability: Porcelain is extremely durable, while composite is durable but not as strong as porcelain.

Aesthetics:Porcelain veneers have stain resistant property, while composite resin will stain like natural teeth.

Cost: Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite veneers.
