Types Of Veneers
At Accu Dental, our expert orthodontists and dental surgeons use two different kinds of dental veneers – porcelain and composite.
Porcelain veneers are very long lasting and have a very natural look. They’re fitted by our experts over two to three appointments and require some preparation to your teeth to be made.
Our dental surgeons and orthodontists are able to fit composite veneers in a single visit to our clinic. Firstly several layers of resin are applied to the damaged teeth, which is then sculptured to make them look completely natural. This kind of veneer is perfect for slightly damaged or stained teeth.
How Long Do They Last?
Dental veneers are a long lasting way of improving your smile. How long they last for is dependent upon your lifestyle, your own personal dental care routine, and the kind of veneers that you’ve had fitted. Porcelain veneers that have been well cared for can last anywhere between 10 and 20 years, whereas composite veneers will only last between four and eight years.
