Patients are often confused as to the difference between Composite and Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are custom fit directly over the patient’s natural teeth with the purpose to fill in gaps or cover broken, chipped, stained, small or crooked teeth. The end results produce a perfect white, straight smile.
So what is the difference and how do you choose?
Composite veneers offer patients the most cost effective solution to improve their smile. The procedure itself is minimally invasive and in majority of cases, can be treated in one appointment.
Porcelain veneers are extremely realistic due to the porcelain being translucent and light reflective making the veneer appearance similar to tooth enamel.
Porcelain veneers are highly stain and chip resistant and with good maintenance should last 15 plus years.
Veneers can range from $400 - $2000 per tooth dependant on the type of veneer selected. Good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing twice a day) as well as six monthly visits to the dentist will help keep your veneers in top condition.
