It is essential to note that both porcelain and composite veneers have advantages and disadvantages. Out team at Eastwood Dental will help you decide which material is best suited to your budget and lifestyle.
Porcelain veneers, like composite veneers, take a natural aesthetic which will ensure they go undetected amid the rest of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining and are relatively durable. However, if they do crack or chip, the entire veneer must be immediately replaced. They also are most commonly made offsite at a dental lab as they are custom-fit which means fitting a porcelain veneer will take a few weeks.
Composite resin veneers on the other hand are usually attached in one visit, as the veneer is sculpted onto your tooth by your dentist. Chips in composite veneers can also be repaired and are cheaper than porcelain veneers.
