Types of Dental Veneers

Let's chat about the two types of Veneers in Jacksonville, FL!


Composite | Composite veneers have a number of advantages, one of the most substantial advantages being cost. Cost is very important for some patients, given that Veneers are most likely an out-of-pocket expense.


Arguably the most considerable advantage of composite veneers is their reversibility. Porcelain requires reshaping of your teeth in order to fit the veneer, as compared to composite veneers with minimal prep work required on your natural teeth. This means that they are not permanently shaped to such an extent that they cannot be removed and replaced as needed.


Another advantage is the number of visits/time to complete the procedure. Composite Veneers can typically be fabricated while in office, making it a same-day treatment!


Porcelain | Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin and translucent tooth-colored shells. They are bonded to the front surface of your teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. They’re made in our dental lab to be customized to the size, shape, and color of your dream smile. We are happy to offer porcelain veneers to patients from Jacksonville, Florida and all the surrounding areas.


Durability, undeniably the number one advantage of Porcelain Veneers. The Porcelain material is much stronger than composite resin.


Almost everyone in the Dental field agrees that porcelain veneers better mimic the most natural, light-reflecting, tooth-like feel and look. It is highly resistant to chipping and staining due to the strength of the material and the glaze that is applied. Composite veneers are more susceptible to stains, meaning that you may need to adjust your diet.

Composite Veneers need to be polished in order to achieve a tooth-like esthetic.

Porcelain Veneers can last between 10-15 years, compared to the 5-7 year lifespan of Composite Veneers. While composites may cost half as much as porcelain, they last only half as long.
