Two Types Of Dental Veneers – Which Is Right For You?

Dr. Kantor talks about the pro’s and con’s of the two types of veneers (composite or porclein) you can get in today’s video blog.


Hello, I’m Dr. Greg Kantor here with Kantor Dental Group. Aesthetic dentistry and implantology. Today, I want to talk about (dental) veneers.

Veneers can be either composite, meaning built up in the office, or made of porcelain, meaning the dentist takes an impression and they send it out to the lab.

They’re both very good and can give you a much-increased look in your smile. One however, veneers, I think will last longer. And, they also, initially, I think look better. The reason for this is the veneers are done in the lab. And, when they’re done in the lab they can be done outside your mouth. The dentist or lab technician can look at it. We’re not worried about time and create the perfect shape, color and lip line that will just be perfect for your smile.

Ones done in the office, time is of the essence. The composite ones in the office don’t keep their sheen as well. They have a more prone to staining and they may not be perfect in shape But, of course they will still look good. The price difference though, the composite ones are cheaper.

So, if you have any questions about this or would like to know more about veneers and the types that you go with, definitely give us a call here at Kantor Dental Group. Aesthetic dentistry and implantology. Please subscribe.
