Patients looking to mask their cosmetic dental flaws have some choices available. Dental veneers are a great way to cover any chips, cracks, gaps, or crooked teeth you do not want seen, among other issues. There are, however, different types of veneers. The following describes three types and why they might be perfect for you and your smile.
Experts and patients alike love porcelain veneers due to the material’s many benefits. Porcelain is strong, durable, and stain resistant. It also reflects light in the same way as tooth enamel, allowing your new smile to look just as natural as your old one.
Composite resin veneers
By using this material, our dentist can create your veneers directly inside the mouth. This means that only one appointment is needed for you to show off your new, aesthetically pleasing smile. Composite resin veneers are also a less expensive route for perfecting your teeth than many other alternatives.
This subset of veneer is popular with many patients. Lumineers do not require the removal of enamel, so the structure of the teeth can remain. Therefore, they can also be removed if need be.
