Porcelain veneers are made of a more durable and smoother material than composite veneers and look more cosmetic. The color of the veneer can be determined very accurately and is therefore an advantage over composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are made very accurately in our own dental laboratory. A porcelain veneer is less sensitive to, for example, an attack on your teeth.
We make our ceramic (porcelain) veneers from E-max ivoclar. These are high-quality facings with the latest technology. Our laboratory has the most professional equipment at its disposal and specializes in making these veneers to size.
With a composite veneer, the dentist has to grind less of the tooth than with a porcelain treatment. In addition, the composite treatment is generally shorter.
In most cases you only have to come by once for a treatment. This is because no print has to be made and treated in our laboratory. The choice of the final color is more predictable. As a result, the handling costs are also lower.
Our composite veneers are made from high-quality materials. We use the composite of 3M Espe filtek supreme XTE. This is a very high-quality worldwide product with many possibilities. Of all composite materials, this is the composite that gives the most natural look and the least color.
A composite veneer is generally cheaper than a porcelain veneer.With composite veneers, nothing or little is cut off from the tooth. Therefore, only one treatment is required for placing the veneer (s).Composite veneers are easier to repair or repair.
Composite veneers can have a dull appearance and therefore have a less natural effect. Composite itself has a more duller color than porcelain.
The finishing of a composite veneer is done in one treatment, but in phases. The dentist fills the tooth or choose a piece of composite every time to give more detail to the appearance.Composite veneers have a shorter lifespan. This of course depends on the maintenance of the teeth and oral health.
