A porcelain veneer is a good way of restoring a tooth’s appearance and strength after a dental procedure. Unfortunately, porcelain veneers are typically expensive in the United States, especially in states like California, Illinois and New York.

In addition, veneers are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are a great way of improving the look of teeth. Because the goal of cosmetic dentistry is to achieve a natural harmonious look, several veneers may be needed, which multiplies the cost of veneers.

Porcelain Veneers vs. Composite Veneers

A veneer is a “cover” for a tooth. It can be used when the tooth needs reconstruction or for cosmetic dentistry purposes.

Porcelain veneers are the newest type of veneers, and as their name implies, they’re made of dental porcelain. Dental porcelain veneers acase study 4re produced in a laboratory with materials that give it properties that are both natural looking and friendly to the inside of the mouth.

Before porcelain veneers were invented, only composite veneers were used. Composite veneers are made of synthetic resin and can be molded in a very short time, usually directly over the tooth. The main advantage of composite over porcelain veneers is that the patient doesn’t have to wait until a laboratory builds it.

On the other hand, porcelain veneers, while requiring the patient to come back after a few days in order to get them applied, have several advantages over composite veneers.

  • Porcelain veneers look more natural
  • Porcelain veneers are more resistant
  • Porcelain veneers last longer and in many cases, for the rest of your life.
  • Porcelain veneers are stronger, thus allowing for better chewing.
  • Porcelain veneers don’t grow soft with time.
  • Porcelain veneers feel more natural, and after a short while, you won’t notice they’re there.

If you are too self-conscious about your teeth—to the point that you have to cover your mouth when you laugh or speak in public—porcelain veneers are the best option for you.
