  • What are the differences between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?

    Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from high-quality ceramic material, known for their durability and natural appearance. They are custom-made in a lab and typically require two visits to complete. Composite veneers, on the other hand, are made from a tooth-colored resin applied directly to your teeth and sculpted by the dentist. While composite veneers can be completed in a single visit and are less expensive, they may not last as long as porcelain veneers and are more prone to staining.

  • What is the procedure for getting dental veneers?

    The procedure begins with a consultation, during which we discuss your goals and examine your teeth. 

     

    Porcelain Veneers: A small amount of enamel is removed from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a dental lab where your custom veneers are created. Once ready, the dentist bonds the veneers to your teeth. 

     

    Composite Veneers: They are applied directly to your teeth in layers, shaped, and hardened using a special light, all in one visit.

  • How should I care for my dental veneers?

    Caring for your dental veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Maintain a good oral hygiene routine by brushing twice daily and flossing daily. Avoid biting on hard objects like ice or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to keep your veneers and oral health in top condition.
