What Are Dental Veneers Made Of?

November 30, 2022 8:48 pm

Did you know dental veneers are made in dental offices and dental laboratories? The material they are made of will depend upon where they are made and what materials are available. However, veneers are typically created out of porcelain or composite resin material.

Types of Veneers

There are many reasons why a dentist or patient will proceed with dental veneer treatment. For some, it’s about the aesthetic of a brighter smile. For others, veneers can mask teeth that are chipped, cracked, or stained.

Regardless of the reason, there are several types of veneers available and some may better fit your smile than others. Types of dental veneers include:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Composite veneers
  • Lumineers®
  • Zirconia veneers

Every dental veneer is custom to your smile. Regardless of the type of veneer and its material, your smile will transform into one you’re proud to show off! However, porcelain or composite resin are typically the most common.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are referred to as traditional veneers. It’s the type we offer our patients at our office in Hermitage, TN. The procedure is considered permanent since porcelain veneers require a small removal of enamel. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and can last up to or more than ten years with great care!

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are similar to traditional veneers. However, composite veneers often do not require the removal of enamel, allowing less commitment to the treatment. Composite materials are less durable but are more affordable.
