Veneers are the most aesthetic cosmetic dental procedures that are commonly performed. Known as being the primary method to obtain the “Hollywood Smile,” veneers can predictably change an entire smile, whether it be a minor change or a complete smile makeover. Meticulous and precise analysis of the teeth, gums, and facial structure will result in the ideal, long-lasting, cosmetic result with composite resin or porcelain dental veneer Toronto offers.
What are the different types of veneers available?
There are two main types of dental veneers that are available to correct cosmetic dental concerns: “Chair-side Composite Resin Veneers“and “Laboratory fabricated Porcelain Veneers.” Since both have their pro’s and con’s, and all factors must be considered before proceeding to ensure the optimal final desired aesthetic outcome for the patient.
What are Composite Resin Veneers?
Composite resin veneers are applied, bonded, and completed in one single appointment. The dentist uses high strength bonding composite material/resin to correct cosmetic issues. The tooth is first isolated and then cleaned thoroughly. The bonding material and resin is then applied and shaped for the perfect outcome. A final finishing and polishing procedure ensures that the resin veneers has a natural consistency, mimicking tooth enamel and dentin colours. Although more economical than porcelain veneers, the resin tends to discolour and wear away faster than their porcelain counterpart.
How do Porcelain Veneers differ than Composite Resin Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are made from high strength, fracture resistant, and the most highly esthetic ceramic material available in cosmetic dentistry. These are custom fabricated to each patient, and completed in two appointments with the use of a dental laboratory. The ideal porcelain ceramic materials used are lithium silicate/disilicate (Brand name: Emax, Obsidian, or Suprinity). Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite veneers, colour stable, and offers an instant enhancement of esthetics.
