Composite veneers are similar to porcelain veneers but the big difference being is that they are made out of a composite material.
What Are Composite Veneers?
They are fabricated shells that are fitted to the fronts of your prepared teeth, with the main aim of improving the overall aesthetics of your smile.
Why Would I Need Composite Veneers?
This is very much a cosmetic type of treatment that is aimed at improving the looks of your smile. If you are unhappy with:
- The looks of your teeth
- The shape of your teeth
- The length of your teeth
- Or you have small gaps between your teeth
Then composite veneers may be ideal for you. They can be used for a single tooth or as part of a full mouth smile make over.
Which Is Better Porcelain Or Composite Veneers?
Porcelain is a much stronger material than composite, so as a result, less tooth preparation is required as they can be made thinner. But the flip side to this is that composite is a cheaper material which means the overall cost for treatment will be lower.
There are certain cases which both have their uses for and it really depends on what your end goal is to say which treatment option is best for you.
