Common Types of Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin plates that cover the front of teeth and perform the same protective and aesthetic functions as natural enamel. However, unlike the natural protective layer, which is frequently faulty, veneers look perfect and can give the appearance of a flawless smile.

Types of veneers:
During one appointment, the dentist creates direct (therapeutic) veneers from composite materials directly in the patient’s mouth cavity. However, your teeth must be sharpened. Such overlays have the advantage of being quick to produce, but their service life is limited. You’ll also have to polish the veneers on a regular basis.
Types of veneers: material
Veneers are made from a variety of materials, including composite (which is also used to manufacture dental fillings), porcelain, and zirconium. There are differences in terms of service life and appearance.
Emax ceramic (porcelain) veneers are as near to natural teeth as possible, and if the colour is chosen appropriately, no one will be able to tell the difference. Porcelain veneers last a long period – 15-20 years – and do not alter colour or stain from food or drinks since ceramics are tough enough.
A filler (composite) material is used to make composite veneers. Because they are made without pricey ceramics or cutting-edge technology, they are inexpensive. However, even if all the instructions are followed, they will only last 5 years before needing to be replaced.
Zirconia veneers are extremely long-lasting. Ceramic weight is used to cover the zirconium framework. They last a long time, but lack the visual appeal of ceramics.
Each of the materials offered has distinct characteristics and advantages, therefore selecting one should be discussed exclusively with a clinic professional.
