Dental veneers are solid, yet thin, pieces of material used to cover small flaws on the surface of a tooth. Functionally, veneers serve two purposes; to restore the appearance of a tooth and to protect the surface of a tooth from additional damage or staining.
Composite veneers are made out of a special resin that resembles the color of your teeth. These are more durable and take less time to make than porcelain veneers, however, they are not as durable.
Porcelain veneers are made out of a tooth-colored ceramic material that provides an even more natural appearance than composite veneers. Although more expensive, porcelain veneers can also last much longer.
The lifespan of these devices will depend on what you eat and how careful you are with your teeth. Composite veneers can last between five and seven years while porcelain veneers can last between ten and fifteen years.
