Porcelain Veneers are a thin piece of laboratory-made ceramic, which is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are very durable and create a very life-like and natural tooth appearance. They are more expensive than composite veneers as more time, expertise and resources are required in order to fabricate and bond them to your teeth.
Composite resin is a tooth-colored filling material that is used to form dental veneers. An adequate amount of tooth structure is removed to allow for placement of composite resin in the desired shape without added tooth bulk. Bonding agent is applied. Composite resin is then added, light cured, then finished and polished.
