Which one is right for me: Porcelain versus Composite Veneers Thane
Dental veneers are a good choice if you want to enhance your smile. There are mainly two kinds of veneers- porcelain and composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in the lab and are more stain resistant than composite veneers. Composite veneers are resin-based veneers directly applied to the tooth by the dentist. Both types of veneers have their own pros and cons, and we will briefly discuss them in the information provided below.
Direct composite veneers: Composite Veneers Thane
They are made of a composite resin material applied directly to your teeth.
It doesn’t take much time for our team of dentists in Majiwada to prepare your teeth for the application of the veneers, and the application process is considered minimally invasive.
Indirect composite veneers: Composite Veneers Thane
The primary difference between direct and indirect composite veneers is not in the material used but in the application process. Your teeth are prepared as they would be for direct composite veneers, but the veneers are custom-made ‘indirectly’ outside of the mouth in a dental laboratory.
You’ll be given a set of temporary veneers until the indirect veneers are fabricated. The indirect composite veneers are fixed to your teeth at the next appointment with an adhesive layer. Indirect composite veneers can better resist fractures and withstand more abrasions than direct ones.
Our cosmetic dentist will make impressions of your teeth, so the veneers can be fabricated in the dental lab from the mold, a process that might take a week or longer. Just like the indirect composite veneers, you’ll receive a set of temporary veneers while you wait. Our aesthetic dentist will cement the thin porcelain shells to the front of your teeth when ready.

Composite veneers Thane procedure
- Our cosmetic dentist in Majiwada will begin the process by cleaning your teeth thoroughly.
- Now we will have to remove a thin layer of your enamel to help the material stick to your teeth.
- The process differs depending on whether you’re getting direct or indirect veneers.
- In the next step, we will etch the enamel of your teeth to help with the bonding.
- Now comes the application of adhesive to help the composite resin material stick to your teeth. Lastly, composite material layers are added to your teeth’ surface.
- Now comes the curing part that quickly hardens the layers of the composite resin
- With indirect veneers, we’ll take a mold of your teeth.
- Indirect veneers are fabricated in the lab. When the indirect veneers are ready, they adhere to the tooth surface with an adhesive.
