Should I choose composite veneer or porcelain veneer material?

Should I get composite veneers or porcelain veneers? Patients often wonder what is the difference between composite veneers and porcelain veneers,and which dental treatment is right for their smile makeover.

Dental composite veneers, also called composite resin veneers, involve the use of dental composite material. This is the same dental fillings material that dentists use to fix tooth cavities. The composite veneer procedure is best in situations where patients want to correct one or two teeth by making it match the appearance of the rest of their natural teeth. This dental treatment is done in one appointment and at relatively low cost. Composite veneers can be applied in a very thin layer without damaging much tooth structure.

Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, is a more comprehensive cosmetic dentistry dental procedure when a patient wants to correct the appearance of the entire mouth for a completely new smile. Porcelain veneers use dental lab ceramic materials to custom fabricate very thin enamel colored shells. These ceramic shells are bonded onto the outer surface of your natural teeth using special light curing. Not only are porcelain veneers more stain-resistant and durable, they help produce a more beautiful smile. Porcelain veneer placement is done in two visits, sometimes up to four visits. Temporary veneers are often required between appointments.

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

There are many reasons why a patient would want dental veneers. Uneven teeth, crooked teeth, discolored teeth, or gaps between teeth, just to name a few reasons. Dr David Nguy uses tooth colored materials to get the perfect match for your smile makeover.

Before you jump into getting a smile makeover with porcelain veneers, it is important to have your cosmetic dentist Dr David Nguy check your mouth to take dental x-rays and make sure you do not have any tooth cavities or infection of the gums.

PORCELAIN VENEERS TORONTO FAQ'S

Composite veneers treatment is typically done in one visit, while porcelain veneers can take up to four visits.

In the first visit, Dr David Nguy will assess your smile, and then take photographs and impressions of your teeth to create a wax or digital model of your new smile. It is important to get the shape and symmetry just right.

In the second visit, the dentist will minimally prepare the teeth and take final impressions. Meanwhile, you will have temporary veneers bonded in place. The dentist may use local anaesthesia (freezing).

In the third visit, the dentist removes the temporary veneers, cleans the tooth enamel, and bonds the porcelain veneers. Additional steps may be involved if further custom shading is required.

A fourth visit is typically scheduled a week after the veneer procedure to evaluate for minor adjustments of your porcelain veneers.

Here are some things you can do to care for your porcelain veneers so that they last a long time:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene and visit Dr David Nguy’s office in Toronto for regular checkups and teeth cleanings.
  • Avoid biting into hard or crunchy foods that can cause chipped and unbonded veneers.
  • Avoid staining foods and drinks like berries, ketchup, red sauces, tobacco products, coffee, mustard, soy sauce, red wine, and tea.
  • If you feel tooth sensitivity, use a desensitizing toothpaste like Sensodyne or Colgate Pro-relief.

Porcelain veneers are made with dental ceramic, of which a variety is available with their own unique properties. 

  • Feldspathic porcelain is the most esthetic and natural looking, but is also the most fragile. 
  • Zirconia porcelain is the strongest porcelain, but has limitations in how natural they can look. Other varieties also exist, such as e-max (lithium disilicate), which provide a happy medium between strength and esthetics.
  • Composite veneers is the same material with which dental fillings are made, and is done in one appointment by the dentist.

The choice of materials will largely depend on your esthetic demands and any parafunctional habits that you may have that can damage the dental veneers. Dr David Nguy can help you decide what material will best suit your needs.

On average, dental veneers last you about 10 years or more. With proper oral hygiene and careful avoidance of hard consumables that can break, chip or unbond veneers, it is possible to have dental veneers last you a lifetime. It is not uncommon for one or a few veneers to unbond from the tooth during their dental service life, and so maintenance of appearance can be expected.

If you would like to brighten your entire smile, your dentist can create a plan that involves bleaching your teeth first and then preparing your teeth for veneers afterwards. It is important to bleach your teeth before having your white dental veneers. This is so that your veneers will harmonizes with the rest of your smile. Moreover, dental veneers will not bleach afterwards.
