Porcelain veneers (ceramic)

  • Do not get stained;
  • Do not change colour;
  • Look like false nails that are moulded and cemented on the teeth;
  • Have a longer lifespan than composite veneers;
  • Their fabrication is done in a laboratory – a second visit is necessary to apply the veneers.

Composite veneers

  • Are done in a single appointment;
  • Are less expensive than porcelain veneers;
  • Are made directly at the dentist’s office and shaped on the tooth;
  • Have a shorter life expectancy than the porcelain veneers (may require touch-ups with time).

Warning! Veneers are not for you if…

  • You have cavities or gum disease (you first need to treat them);
  • There is not enough enamel on the tooth (reduced adhesion to affix veneers);
  • You are missing a large part of the tooth (you will need a dental crown);
  • You grind your teeth (because you may damage and even break your veneers). In this situation it is better to opt for a complete crown.
