Tooth restoration and material types
Veneers are incredibly popular and for good reason; they can transform damaged or misaligned teeth into a near-perfect smile. They used to be something that only the rich and famous could have back in the days when they were cutting edge dental technology and incredibly expensive.
These days though, they are affordable for many and they can offer any of us a completely rejuvenated and picture-perfect smile even the biggest celebrities would admire.
Most people think of veneers are just one type of treatment with the same materials and processes, whereas actually, there are different types of veneers on the market. All the options range in price, benefits, and downsides. So if you’re considering porcelain veneers in Chiswick, then it’s worth knowing about all the different options available on the market so you can begin your journey to the ‘perfect’ smile fully informed.
One of the most common types of veneer is the composite version made from a special dental material which is applied to the prepared teeth before being shaped during your appointment. Composite is not a veneer material commonly used for larger and more complex smile transformation treatments but instead is more likely to be applied for minor cosmetic issues like a cracked tooth or teeth with small gaps in them.
Composite veneers cost a lot less than other types of veneer and they don’t take as long to complete. However, the finish isn’t necessarily comparable to more expensive options and the product is not as stain resistant. In terms of durability, with regular visits to your dentist near Chiswick for maintenance, and good daily dental hygiene, you can still expect them to last reasonably well.
