Types of dental veneers
These veneers are manufactured directly on the tooth itself by applying a resin called composite. This material is similar to that used in the treatment of fillings.
This component is the fastest and easiest to place , but offers poorer quality than other materials, being more sensitive to fractures or long-term staining.
To properly maintain this type of veneer, we recommend that you visit your trusted dentist periodically to carry out the appropriate revisions.
Treatments of this type are manufactured in advance in a laboratory and placed on the patient later. Compared with the composite ones, these are of better quality, since they tend to last longer and maintenance is easier .
They are characterized by being especially fine porcelain . In this case, the tooth does not need to be carved, so the process is simpler than usual. However, manufacturing is more complex, since it requires a more specific method.
