What Are The Different Types Of Veneers?

There are two main types of dental veneers available: composite resin or porcelain. The best material for you to use for your veneers depends on your individual desires and budget.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are usually placed on the tooth in just one appointment. Once the tooth has been reshaped for the veneer, the dentist bonds and shapes the composite material to best match your teeth. A special light is then used to harden the material and the veneer is smoothed to look like a natural tooth. While these are a more affordable option than porcelain veneers, they last 4-8 years and require more maintenance as they are more prone to chipping.

Porcelain veneers are popular for restoring the strength and appearance of teeth that may be:

What to Expect

Porcelain veneers can be applied in a simple procedure that only requires a few visits and involves no major surgery. The procedure for a veneer may involve the following steps:


You should first have a consultation with Dr. Sonia Olivares where you discuss your desired results and your treatment options. During the appointment, the dentist may take x-rays or impressions of your mouth and teeth.


At your next appointment, your dentist will trim approximately ½ millimeter of enamel off your tooth before making an impression of your tooth. Options such as local anesthetic can be used to reduce pain and numb the area.


2 – 4 weeks after your impression is sent off to the dental lab, you will receive your newly constructed porcelain veneers.

Bonding Placement

In order to prepare your tooth to receive the veneer, the dentist will clean, polish, and etch your tooth. Roughening the surface of your tooth by etching helps to strengthen the bonding.


Your dentist will then apply special cement to the veneer before placing it on your tooth. Once it is in the correct position, your veneer will be photopolymerised. A particular light beam is used to activate the chemicals in the cement, which causes the cement to harden quickly and finalize the bonding of the veneer to your tooth.


Your dentist will then make any needed final adjustments.
