5 Types Of Veneers For Your TeethAre you looking for a cosmetic solution that will dramatically change the way you smile? The use of dental veneers is a guaranteed strategy that will leave you with a flawless smile. The strategy will modify the overall color, shape as well as appearance of teeth. Most experts will term the overall procedure as a “smile makeover.” Therefore, if you have an issue with stained teeth, gaps, and broken teeth, this is the best process that will handle the oral problem. We are going to look at the 5 types of cosmetic veneers so that you determine the best one for you.

Porcelain Veneers

These are the most common type of veneers that have been used in practice for almost 100 years. Aside from mimicking the natural teeth look, porcelain veneers are able to withhold pressure to certain levels. This makes porcelain veneers one of the strong as well as durable compared to other kinds of veneers.

Composite Veneers

Usually prepared from composite resin. Therefore, contains both organic and inorganic substances. Compared to porcelain, Composite veneers are inexpensive; therefore, many people afford them. They have a smooth texture and can last for more than 5 years.


These are thin but toughest veneers. They often have fewer teeth preparation. Though it has an ultra-thin coat of laminate material porcelain, it has been identified to last long. They have a natural feel and look.

Palatal Veneers

Palatal veneers have mostly been used to help in the restoration of the lingual surface, mostly for the front teeth. They are typically fabricated with the help of several materials, including porcelain, composite as well as gold in some cases.

Temporal Veneers

These are removable veneers and are characteristically made of a flexible resin. They are considered in times for a temporary solution before choosing a permanent method. There are even times that the veneers will be used as mouth guards as well as to keep imperfect teeth in order. Some of the temporary veneers are instant veneers and custom-made clip veneers.

Though veneers have been chosen to hide imperfect teeth, it would also be great to cover teeth surfaces with veneers to help curb sensitivity.
