Types of Dental Veneers

There are two major types of dental veneers. Composite veneers consist of a durable composite resin moulded to fit the exact dimensions of your teeth. Composite veneers are cheaper and generally don’t require removing any existing tooth materials. Porcelain veneers consist of hard artificial porcelain shell that resists staining. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable, but placing them securely requires removing some tooth material.

Both composite and porcelain veneers have their advantages and disadvantages. At the EDentist clinic, we can help you pick an option that fits your needs and budget.

What to Expect During the Dental Veneer Procedure

The process for getting dental veneers typically takes a few days to a few weeks to complete. At your first appointment, your dentist will order x-rays and take a mould of your teeth to create permanent veneers that custom fit your teeth. If you are getting permanent porcelain veneers, the dentists will also remove about half a millimetre of your tooth to make space for the veneers.

During the next appointment, the dentist will affix the veneers to your teeth using a cementing agent and UV light catalyst. It typically takes about two weeks for veneers to feel normal and return to normal sensitivity levels.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Our dental veneers in Cantebury are a non-invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure and do not require surgery or anaesthesia. After affixing veneers, you will be able to go home and maintain your normal daily schedule. At EDentist, we offer both composite and porcelain dental veneers, including no-prep Lumineer dental veneers. Our smile design services can completely rework your mouth to improve your dental appearance.

Dental veneers are a permanent procedure to improve your tooth shape, appearance, and colour. You won’t be able to remove veneers after the initial application, and veneers last for years with proper care.

Improve Tooth Colour

Dental veneers can cover discolouration, improving tooth colour and restoring a white appearance.

Cover Imperfections

Dental veneers can also cover various dental imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or misshapen teeth.

Restore Confidence

Dental veneers can restore your beautiful smile, giving you the confidence to meet and succeed in life’s daily challenges.

Frequently Asked Questions

The dental veneer process might cause slight discomfort, so patients typically receive a local anesthetic during the tooth preparation phase. Most patients report slight discomfort and increased sensitivity for a few days after affixing their veneers. Patients also report temporary soreness in the jaw and gums.
You can care for veneers like your normal teeth—brush twice a day and floss at night. You may also want to wear a mouthguard when sleeping to prevent teeth grinding. We recommend avoiding hard foods because these can crack the veneer material.
Composite veneers require significantly less preparation and are cheaper to manufacture. However, they require more maintenance and do not last as long. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, have substantial durability and can last for up to 15 years. Porcelain veneers require more preparation time and are more expensive. Our experienced staff can help you find the right choice of veneers.
