What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin “shells” made of porcelain or resin that our dentist securely affixes to your teeth to cover a variety of cosmetic imperfections. We match the color to your natural teeth. Attaching the veneers is a quick and simple procedure and usually requires no anesthesia.
Two Types of Dental Veneers
At The Smile Center, we use two types of dental veneers: porcelain and resin. Our cosmetic dentist will discuss your smile goals and help you select the right option for your needs.
We’ve highlighted some of the key differences for you here:
- Porcelain dental veneer. Our Georgetown SC and Murrells Inlet SC dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send specifications for the veneers to an outside lab. On a second visit, we will attach the veneers to your teeth. Porcelain is naturally translucent, so it more closely resembles your own teeth. These veneers will typically last at least a decade with good care. They cost more than resin veneers.
- Resin dental veneer. Our dentist will create these for you in a single visit. They typically last five to seven years. They cost less than porcelain dental veneers.
