Pros and Cons of Composite Resin Veneers
The following are the pros and cons of receiving composite resin veneers instead of receiving porcelain veneers. Please keep reading to learn more about it.
Pros of Composite Resin Veneers
Composite veneers are a more affordable option for a brand new smile in terms of cost. Porcelain veneers can be quite expensive as they are made from a custom-molded cast for your teeth. Composite resin is also custom to you, but it is done during the procedure.
You will have fewer visits to the office than you would if you got porcelain veneers. You only need to have one visit for composite veneers, whereas porcelain veneers can take at least two visits.
Because the resin material is custom-sculped to your teeth, they are often much easier to fix if you have any damage to your veneers. Porcelain veneers are much harder to fix because your dentist must remake them entirely for your tooth.
These veneers can fix imperfections in your teeth that you are likely not happy to live with. You will be able to perfect the shape of your teeth. You can restore the symmetry of your teeth, and you can cover up unattractive discoloration of your teeth. They can do a lot to give you a smile that you love.
Cons of Composite Resin Veneers
One of the drawbacks that you should know about is that composite resin is not as durable as porcelain, which means you are more susceptible to chips in your veneers. You can probably get around 5 to 7 years out of a composite resin veneer, while a porcelain veneer can last more than ten years.
You may also find that porcelain veneers look more realistic than composite veneers. That may be a big drawback for someone who does not want anyone to be able to tell that they have had cosmetic work done on their teeth.
Are Composite Resin Veneers Worth It?
At the end of the day, it is up to you to weigh the pros and cons to decide if this treatment is worth receiving. Many people will choose to opt for composite resin, but we also have a lot of patients who are more interested in porcelain veneers.
