Porcelain or Composite Veneers: Can They Give You The Perfect Smile?

Thanks to the continuous advancements in cosmetic dentistry, there are now several ways to restore your broken smile or achieve the pearly white teeth you always wanted. One of them is through porcelain or composite veneers.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers, otherwise called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are thin, custom-made shells that are firmly bonded on top of the surface of the front teeth to enhance its appearance.
There are two types of materials used to create dental veneers, composite resin and porcelain laminate. It is recommended you consult with your cosmetic dentist to find which option suits you best.

What Are They Good For?

Porcelain or composite veneers are a less invasive and more conservative dental procedure compared to dental crowns because it addresses your dental concerns while letting you keep your natural teeth.
  • Dental veneers can cover up seriously stained teeth that cannot be remedied with teeth whitening solutions.
  • Porcelain dental veneers can also conceal fractured, oddly shaped, gapped or misaligned teeth.
  • To achieve a picture-perfect smile, porcelain veneers are often used with laser gum contouring or reshaping. This dental procedure is commonly advised for patients with small teeth and big gums.

Why Choose Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a great way to aesthetically improve the quality of your smile. It requires minimal dental preparation, such as extensive tooth reshaping in the case of dental crowns. Porcelain veneers also reflect light, which gives them a beautiful and natural appearance. They come in a wide range of shades that match your real teeth and are also stain resistant, which makes them cost-effective because you no longer need expensive teeth whitening treatments.
