All You Need to Know About Veneers

Posted by Dr. Bray on Jun 22 2021, 09:04 AM

Do you want to solve the problem of having decayed, crooked, or stained teeth once and for all? Veneers are one of the best options available. 

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to mask the front part of the teeth and cover stains, spots, gaps, or other imperfections. They are made by a dental technician and are affixed to your teeth by a specialized dentist. 

Read on to find out all about what types of veneers are available and their pros and cons. 

Types of Veneers

There are four main types of veneers used in dentistry:

  • Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is one of the most commonly used materials for dental restorations as it is both stain-resistant and durable. It is also biocompatible, meaning it isn’t harmful to your oral tissues. 

Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years and are thinner than other types of veneers. 

  • Ceramic Veneers

Ceramic veneers are a very popular option with patients as they are durable and natural-looking and are usually less costly than porcelain veneers. 

  • Composite Veneers

These types of veneers are made using composite resin. They are cheaper compared to porcelain veneers but less durable and more susceptible to staining or cracking.

  • Clip-On Veneers

These are removable veneers that can be clipped on and removed at your own convenience. They are custom-made based on an impression of your teeth.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

The Consumer Guide to Dentistry estimates that veneers can cost anywhere between $900 to $2,500 and can last for 5 to 15 years depending on the material they are made of and how well they are cared for.
