Choosing between composite and porcelain veneers:

While composite veneers are the cheaper alternative, they do not last as long as porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are applied in layers to your teeth which can make them look less natural than porcelain. Composites are designed to be a super-thin covering that is almost translucent and placed over your existing tooth.

Making a selection between the two types of veneers and which one is best suited to you is something we encourage you to speak with us about before making a final decision, as we understand everyone’s needs and budgets are different. We offer a range of payment options for you to consider, to help with budgeting for a better smile in your life.

Porcelain veneers explained

Porcelain dental veneers are individual medical-grade ceramic shells that cover the front of your natural tooth and are cemented in place. Each veneer is carefully custom made at our in-house laboratory to ensure the perfect fit and look for your smile. Once you have been fitted with your porcelain veneers there is no downtime, you will walk out of our clinic with a winning smile that looks and feels natural. We are licensed providers of Lumineers, which are ideal for people who do not wish to undergo the removal of tooth structure that some dental veneers can require. This is due to Lumineers being ultra-thin so they can be fitted directly to your teeth without the need to remove a thin layer of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. They really are at the technical forefront of porcelain dental veneers. Whichever veneers you decide are best for you, our dentists and technicians will work closely together to guarantee the best outcome for each individual patient.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers can last anywhere from ten to twenty years. Their longevity is dependent on how well you care for your teeth. The care involved is nothing more than regular brushing, flossing and check-ups. Just as your natural teeth will be affected by poor oral hygiene, so will your veneers. Damage can occur if you bite into hard objects. If you treat your veneers as you do your natural teeth, do not use your teeth for activities they were not designed for like opening bottles or biting down on hard items.

Do porcelain veneers stain?

Porcelain veneers do not stain like natural teeth. They also have no chance of cavities meaning your natural teeth are better protected and stronger when you have veneers fitted as the composition of the porcelain is stronger than your original tooth. You can happily enjoy coffee, red wine or tea without concerns about your teeth discolouration.
