Types of dental veneers – Is porcelain or composite resin veneers right for you?


Choosing dental veneers is the fastest way to improve the aesthetics of your teeth and achieve the winning smile you’ve always wanted. And determining the material for making veneers is extremely important. Porcelain and composite resin are the most common materials used in the veneer-making process. How do you know which one is right for you? In this article, Ava Dental will help you distinguish the different types of dental veneers and evaluate their quality and longevity.

1. What are the different types of dental veneers? 

There are two main types of dental veneers that clinics commonly use: porcelain and composite resin. Choosing a veneer depends on your budget, preferences, and current dental condition,… 

Composite veneers vs Porcelain veneers

Composite veneers are types of dental veneers that are derived from synthetic resins and they are bonded with a composite resin to the front surface of the tooth in an attempt to make its shape and color more attractive. The composite bonding material used in this procedure is a product similar to what Ava Dental puts in when completing the filling. Bonding is available in a number of different shades, allowing us to specify the exact color of your veneer. Our highly skilled cosmetic dentists will mold and shape the composite in a way to give you a more visible and even smile.

Porcelain veneers, also known as traditional veneers, are thin and contoured porcelain veneers, resembling an artificial nail. It is bonded to the front of your front teeth to change the size, shape, and luster of your natural teeth. Veneers are placed slightly over the edges of natural teeth, allowing them to stay in place and better conceal the fringes. Unlike composite veneers, porcelain veneers are designed and manufactured to order in a dental laboratory.

2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of types of dental veneers

2.1. Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the most commonly used veneers and you can easily find them at any dental clinic near you. They are composed of feldspar, a natural glass-ceramic. Feldspathic porcelain is a very thin and translucent material, which gives it a very natural look. 

In addition to mimicking the natural appearance of teeth, these patches can limit biting pressure to a certain extent. Another great advantage of porcelain veneers is that they are resilient and do not yellow, peel or change color easily. Moreover, it is biocompatible so porcelain veneers do not cause allergies to surround tissues. This is also one reason why they last for a longer time than any other type of veneer.

2.2. Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are used as an alternative to porcelain veneers because they are cheaper and less time-consuming to make veneers than porcelain veneers. They are also known as composite bonding when they do not require the preparation of a lot of teeth. The main ingredient in composite veneers is rosin, a material that restores teeth to the color of teeth. The reason may be that turpentine is not the hardest material so it has better results when placed on the front teeth. 

When compared to porcelain veneers, composite veneers have a shorter lifespan and they are more prone to staining, scratching, and breaking. Composite veneers are also known as simultaneous and temporary veneers because they can be bonded quickly and require minimal enamel removal.


  • Affordable cost

3. How much do dental veneers cost?

The price of dental veneers varies from country to country, from clinic to clinic, or even from dentist to dentist. The price depends mainly on the material of the veneers and is also determined by the number of teeth to be covered.

On average, dental veneers cost $1,300 in the United States, $1,500 in Australia, and $1,200 in New Zealand. On the contrary, you pay only $350 in Vietnam for a single dental veneer. Therefore, you can save up to 70% – 80% when having your veneer done in Vietnam rather than in USA, Australia, or New Zealand.
