Porcelain vs Composite Veneers

Porcelain vs Composite Veneers

Dental veneers are recommended by dentists to correct discoloured, fractured, or crooked teeth. They are affixed onto the front surface of a tooth, to enhance its appearance and cover dental imperfections.

The two popular options for veneers are porcelain and composite veneers. Each veneer type has its unique characteristics, benefits, and considerations.

They are known for their ability to mimic the translucence of natural teeth, providing a seamless blend with your existing smile.

The process involves removing a small amount of enamel to make room for porcelain veneers, followed by custom fabrication in a dental laboratory. This type of veneer requires two or more dental visits before the final cementation.

Porcelain veneers are exceptionally durable, often lasting for more years if handled with care. They are also highly resistant to extrinsic stains from coffee and tobacco.


  • Composite veneers, on the other hand, are crafted from a tooth-coloured resin directly applied and shaped on your teeth. This process eliminates the need for enamel removal, making it a minimally invasive option compared to porcelain veneers.

Composite veneers are ideal for minor cosmetic adjustments, and they can be completed in a single dental visit, making them a popular choice for those seeking immediate results. This type of veneer is less durable, and with an average lifespan of 5-7 years.

They have a high risk of being stained, and more susceptible to fractures. Minor adjustments can be made to the veneers after a few weeks.
