Porcelain Veneers vs Composite Veneers: What’s the difference?

If you have been curious about dental veneers, and whether they are the right option for you, Ashwood Dental Surgery is here to help. Dental veneers provide a long-term solution that can change the look of your smile. Dental veneers can fill gaps, cover misshapen teeth, chips or breaks, and rid your smile of any possible discolouration or wear and tear.

At Ashwood Dental, we offer porcelain veneers, and composite veneers, depending on your preference, and what your dentist thinks will best suit your needs. Each set of dental veneers at Ashwood Dental is custom made, so whichever type you choose will look entirely natural, leaving you able to smile wide and confidently.

Porcelain Veneers vs Composite Veneers: What’s the difference?

Porcelain Veneers

We offer Porcelain Veneers to patients in Ashwood and Ashburton. Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains, and catch the light in the same way that a tooth does, for a more natural look. Porcelain veneers will typically last between 10-15 years.

Composite Veneers

At Ashwood Dental, we also offer the local community in Ashburton, Ashwood, and surrounds, with Composite Veneers. Composite veneers are made of resin. Resin can be applied faster than porcelain veneers, which typically take 2-3 appointments to apply. Composite veneers last between 4 and 8 years, but with proper care and ideal circumstances, they can last just short of a decade.
