Are There Different Types of Veneers to Choose From?

If you’ve decided to get dental veneers to enhance the appearance of your teeth, you need to know your different options. Many people aren’t aware there are a few different types of cosmetic veneers. Whether you want permanent or temporary veneers, there’s an option to fit your needs. Here are the main types to choose from.

Porcelain Veneers

People looking for a permanent solution should consider porcelain veneers. They are the most expensive option, but they are also the most effective. This type of veneer is custom-made for your teeth, so multiple dental visits will be required. They are stain resistant and durable, but they can be costly to repair or replaced if they get broken.

Composite Veneers

This is the most common type of teeth veneer because they get the job done at a fraction of the cost of porcelain. You can usually get composite veneers applied with just a single treatment. They are typically designed for fixing minor defects, like cracked or chipped teeth, and to fill gaps in between teeth. The quality is slightly lower than porcelain, but composite is still a great option.

Instant/Removable Veneers

If you’re just looking for a temporary solution to have a nice smile, you can consider instant or removable teeth veneers. These are very inexpensive to have, but they are not a permanent solution to damaged teeth. If there are any underlying issues to the teeth, this type of veneer won’t repair them. They are mainly designed for people who can’t afford porcelain or composite veneers, but still want to improve the look of their teeth.
