Type of Dental Veneers?
1. Composite Veneers
Composite veneers are often made from a tooth-colored resin, the same type of material used with a tooth filling. The advantage of composite veneer is a shorter application process. It can be finished in a few hours. The composite can also be bonded directly to the surface without the need for drilling or filling, meaning we can improve smiles without preparing teeth. The disadvantages of composite veneers can lead to decay on the roots of the tooth, or more often, and gum disease. Composite veneers will need to be replaced or repaired more frequently than porcelain veneers.
