Composite Veneer Vs Porcelain Veneer

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Composite Veneer Vs Porcelain Veneer

Negatively altered tooth shape or color affects not just the aesthetics, but also the person’s social image and self confidence. It can convert them into introverts who shy away from socialization. Teeth can lose their shape or color due to various reasons from hypo mineralized teeth, to food/tobacco stains, to fractures, trauma or tooth decay. If you are looking for a brilliant white smile with the perfect shape and alignment then veneers have the inherent ability of correcting all minor dental flaws creating a near perfect result.

A Veneer like its namesake is a thin perfectly shaped extension of tooth colored material which maybe composite , ceramic or a combination of the two. While composite resin veneers are fabricated over the affected tooth in a single sitting, the porcelain veneer requires taking impressions and the veneers are fabricated in the lab, which are then fixed on the tooth.

Veneers also help correct minor discolorations and mildly mishapen teeth. The choice of using composite or porcelain depends on a number of factors. Composite resin has a big advantage of reversibility. If the end result is not very satisfactory, then the entire restoration can be removed and a new veneer can be applied. With porcelains, the biggest advantage is their excellent resistance to staining. Even with long term use of coffee and tea, the chances of staining the porcelain veneers would be minimal.

Some of the properties of composite include:

  1. Requires less tooth reduction than a porcelain, thereby saving more natural tooth structure
  2. The material is extremely plastic and resinous, allowing sufficient working time for the dentist to achieve the desired shape and size of the veneer
  3. It is slightly porous and therefore, has a tendency to absorb water over a period of time and take in some stain
  4. Should be polished extremely well to achieve the natural looks
  5. May require replacement after about 3 to 5 years
  6. Can be done in one dental clinic visit

Some of the unique characteristics of porcelain include:

  1. The result of a well-done porcelain veneer produces an extremely natural looking tooth
  2. The best advantage of porcelain is that it is not porous and therefore once it is glazed, does not stain over a period of time. The typical discoloration around the edges of the veneers seen in composite restorations is not seen with porcelain veneers
  3. These veneers therefore last longer than the composite resin veneers
  4. They are more expensive compared to the composite resin veneers.
  5. They require at least 2-3 dental visits

The choice of the material for veneer and the result would depend ultimately on the patient’s aesthetic requirements and overall oral health maintenance. Having a detailed discussion with the dentist will help in choosing the right material and getting the maximum benefit out of it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist and ask a free question.

I got out sliva from mouth when I'm sleeping. Iski kya wjh Ho skti hai aur aisa rokne K liye mujhe kya Karna chahiye?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Hello Lybrate user, trickling of saliva from our mouth when in sleep is because of mouth breathing. Mouth breathing can be either habitual or due to some obstruction (like adenoids or deviated nasal septum). In order to rule out this obstruction you should visit an ENT doctor first and the doctor will tell you if their is obstruction or not and how to remove it. If the mouth breathing is habitual then you can wear a device silensor SL which will keep your mouth closed during sleep or start by using micro pore tape to close your lips before going to sleep. Hope this helps.

They are natural taste buds, don’t worry, you don’t need any medicine. In case they increase in size, change of color or become painful, then you must visit your dentist, Oral physician or Maxillofacial surgeon not ENT specialist.

Sir what is the solution for those who have bad breath is there any permanent solution. Tell me.
May be there chances of calculous deposition at the cervical area of teeth. Go to your dentist. If needed get cleaned your teeth (i.e. Scaling and polishing) follow proper brushing technique (watch utube videos for brushing technique) and understand from your dentist. Most common causes of bad breath is poor oral hygiene which leads to gum disease and tooth decay. If tooth decay present. Get filled. If decay is deep than root canal treatment is the option other causes of bad breath smoking, alcohol habit eating food like garlic onion and spices regularly some medical conditions dry mouth (xerostomia) (GORD) means gastro-oesophageal reflux disease diabetes bronchitis tonsillitis sinusitis. Etc some medicines can also cause bad breath 1st consult your dentist. If needed consult your general practitioner.

Ulcer might be due to various causes. Once you find out the cause the treatment is done perfectly. Get a consultation from the dentist of your choice and be free from this problem. Meanwhile you might use topical ointments like Mucopain.

Do I need an implant for my missing canine? Also underbite and open bite braces and jaw surgery in the process.

Do I need an implant for my missing canine? Also underbite and open bite braces and jaw surgery in the process.
Hi lybrate-user You seem to have looked up your problems on the internet, or seen a dental surgeon. As far as missing teeth are concerned, they ideally should be replaced. Implants are currently the best available option for the same, and should be considered first. However, other options do exist, and you can discuss these with your dentist before selecting the one you find most appropriate to your situation. As for braces and jaw surgery, it would be difficult to give you any opinion without specific evaluation (clinical and xrays). It would be best that you set up an appointment with a dental surgeon and discuss your problems and the possible treatment options, and go ahead with the most feasible one. Thanks.
