What Are Composite Veneers?

A composite veneer is a dental filling made of resin material placed on to the front surface of your tooth to reshape or correct discolouration, malalignment, chips or cracks. Composite veneers are handcrafted and added to the tooth in layers. Each layer is placed, shaped and styled to the appearance which you are wanting to achieve and then hardened with light before the next is applied. When the final shape and colour is achieved, the veneers are polished to give a natural look.

Composite veneers can yield excellent results and represent a more cost-effective alternative compared to porcelain veneers or crowns.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin custom-made shell that is hand crafted from porcelain material. They provide great aesthetic results by covering the front surface of teeth, durable and require minimal maintenance compared to composite veneers.

What Is The Process Of Getting Dental Veneers?

Your initial appointment with our dentist for porcelain veneers in Geelong involves a thorough discussion of what you are hoping to change and improve about your smile. Our dentist then examines your overall dentition to check and ensure you would be suitable candidate for porcelain veneers. We will also go over exactly what we will do to achieve the placement of the veneers.

The next appointment involves shaping the teeth as necessary prior to taking a digital scan. Once the digital scans of your teeth are completed, our dentist will then specifically design and tailor the porcelain veneers to be perfect for you. At the final appointment for porcelain veneers in Geelong, we cement the veneers onto the front surface of your teeth!

Composite and Porcelain Veneers

One of the main questions people have about veneers is regarding the difference between composite and porcelain veneers. While they serve mainly the same purpose, there are a lot of differences between the two. Here are just a few, but it is always important to discuss options with your dentist, as they will know which option suits your needs.

 

Composite Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Correction Capability

Great for correcting minor aesthetic flaws.

Able to correct most aesthetic flaws.

Durability

Typically last 4-8 years.

Can last 10-15 years, but if damage happens, it will have to be replaced.

Time of treatment

This option is generally the quickest. The resin is matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth for the most natural look, and can be applied in one visit. 

Porcelain veneers typically need two visits. An impression is taken, and the next visit, your porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth.

Aesthetics

Composite veneers look great, and will stain like natural teeth. Composite veneers are reversible, if you were to change your mind at any point. 

The translucent properties of porcelain allow the veneer to catch the light, similar to a natural tooth. They are also stain resistant, but porcelain veneers are not reversible.

Cost

Composite veneers are the cheaper option of the two initially.

Porcelain veneers are initially more expensive, as the placement of porcelain takes more time, expertise and resources. If you break down the cost by how often you would have to replace/repair composite veneers versus porcelain, the cost would come out even over time. 

Wear and tear

Composite veneers are more susceptible to staining and chipping, but if damage happens it can be repaired.

Porcelain veneers do not stain, and are resistant to chipping, but if damage is done, the porcelain veneer will need to be replaced.

I am so grateful to Dr Matt for seeing me at such short notice when I had a dental emergency. He was kind, compassionate and explained everything that was going on in an uncomplicated way. He carried out the required dental procedure with gentleness and professionalism and I am now no longer in pain. I have definitely found my new dentist

Dentist & Doctors is by far the best in dentistry in our area. They are amazing at dealing with any problem you may have and have given myself and my family the best dentist care we have ever received. Dentist and Doctors have the most amazing staff to help with any dental procedures you could ever need. They are very reasonably priced and really care for all of their patients. We have been attending Dentist and Doctors for several years now and have changed my opinion about Dentists altogether. I was always ashamed to smile but now that has completely changed. Asef and all of his staff offer the very best in quality service. Please don’t hesitate for the latest technology in dental care and the friendliest atmosphere you could ever imagine. Thankyou to Asef and all of his team as they are by far the best Dentist to have. Quality and kindness always. Regards JO PRATT & FAMILY.😁

Dr Matt and Dr Asef make you feel very welcome to their Practice. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are more than happy to explain the procedures in detail and answer any questions you may have. I had 4 – 3 hour sessions to do the prep work and fit crowns to my very worn out teeth. I was made to feel very comfortable during those sessions with staged breaks along the way. The final results are amazing. My Good Wife Bon is very pleased with the end result too. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I highly recommend Dentists and Doctors Geelong to everyone for their ongoing Dental Support. The front desk Team are also very helpful and supportive. Nothing is too much bother for them in finding suitable appointment times and answering any billing enquires you may have. Thank you Matt, Anwar, the Dental Nurses and your lovely Support Team. Best wishes for a great ongoing future here in Geelong.

Amazing service from Dr Pascale at the dentist. My son, who has severe anxiety, was made to feel very calm during a procedure. He was always told what was happening and always given a chance to stop. The ladies at the front desk have always been helpful and it doesn’t smell like a dentist! I recommend this place to those that have anxious children or are anxious themselves.
