Are Composite Veneers Affordable?

Dental veneers are the miracles of modern cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are the greatest solution for fixing any cosmetic problems, such as misshapen, damaged, or gapped teeth, discoloration, or creating a smile design. 

Composite veneers are proffered by many patients as they offer a more affordable dental treatment option compared to porcelain veneers. They provide patients natural results with the use of filling material that matches the natural shade of the tooth. There are many factors that determine the price.

First of all, composite veneers have a shorter lifespan than porcelain veneers. Although composite veneers produce natural-looking results and whiter teeth appearance, the material isn’t very durable and can get chipped or stained after a while. While porcelain veneers do not easily get stained, many dentists recommend limiting the consumption of drinks such as tea and coffee to protect the result of the composite veneers. They will need to be replaced or repaired after 5-7 years of use, while porcelain veneers won’t be worn out at least within 10-15 years. However, the life of the composite veneers also depends on the skill of the doctor who performed the treatment. The doctor sculpts the material into the desired shape after applying it to the surface of the teeth. 

Another factor that affects the price of the composite veneers is that it’s a quick procedure. An experienced dentist will complete the treatment on the same day so you don’t need to waste too much time, unlike porcelain veneers. It should also be noted that the composite veneers made with today’s technology are highly developed and shouldn’t be considered as an old-fashioned method. The composite veneers are able to create a strong foundation that can prevent oral issues like tooth decay or sensitivity while not being as pricey as the porcelain veneers. 

Composite veneers have the advantage of not damaging the teeth since it doesn’t require removing the teeth to place the veneers. This also means composite veneers don’t need a long preparation period beforehand, which also affects their cost. 

In short, composite veneers are relatively affordable compared to other veneers. Even though it has its pros and cons, it’s a popular treatment and will produce successful results as long as applied by specialist dentists.
