Veneers are a popular and effective solution for enhancing the appearance of your teeth. At Keilor East Dental Smiles, we offer both porcelain and composite veneers, each with unique benefits suited to different needs and preferences.

Understanding the Differences Between Porcelain and Composite Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, semi-transparent shells custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. They are crafted in a dental laboratory and permanently bonded to your natural teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

The Porcelain Veneer Process:

  • Initial Consultation: Your teeth are cleaned, prepared, and an impression is taken.
  • Creation: The veneers are carefully crafted by a specialist ceramist to match your dental specifications.
  • Final Fitting: During a subsequent appointment, your new porcelain veneers are precisely fitted and bonded to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are celebrated for their long-lasting quality and their ability to maintain a natural tooth appearance with minimal maintenance.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers, on the other hand, are made from a tooth-coloured resin applied directly to the teeth. This material is sculpted to the desired shape and hardened using a light activation system, similar to the process used for composite fillings.

The Composite Veneer Process:

  • Single Appointment: The entire procedure—from application to final adjustments—is typically completed in just one visit, making composite veneers a quick and cost-effective treatment option.
Composite veneers are ideal for those looking for an immediate improvement in their smile, offering a seamless blend with your natural teeth for a bright and attractive appearance.

Choosing the Right Veneers for You

During your consultation, our dentist will discuss the benefits of each type of veneer and help you decide which option is best suited to your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
