Dental Veneer Alternatives
Dental porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures today. Many people enjoy the aesthetic benefits that porcelain veneers offer, such as a more uniform shade and length to teeth. But what if you don’t have enough time or budget for porcelain veneers? Fortunately, porcelain veneer equivalents and alternatives are available.
One porcelain veneer alternative is cosmetic bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of porcelain to natural or existing teeth. Like porcelain veneers, porcelain dental bonding can change the color, length and shape of your teeth. The dental bond can be formed by a single layer of porcelain over the tooth or multiple layers for a more dramatic look.
Dental bonding is a fast procedure with few restrictions on activities after the treatment. Just like porcelain veneers, porcelain dental bonding can be sensitive to light during its first week of wear. However, porcelain dental bonding will not require additional time for shaping or reshaping as porcelain veneers do. Cosmetic bonding is also very durable and can last for many years with regular oral hygiene care.
Lastly porcelain dental bonding has a variety of porcelain shades to choose form, so you’ll be sure to find one that best suits your taste. The porcelain color can also be customized to match your natural teeth shade. Dental bonding porcelains are also time-tested and proven to stand the test of time.
Another porcelain veneer alternative is porcelain laminates. Laminates are made up of porcelain fused to a metal base, which gives them strength for durability without the porcelain veneer sensitivity to light. Laminates are porcelains that have been fused with metal, which makes them strong and resistant to chipping or cracking. These porcelain laminates can be used for porcelain veneers or even non-cosmetic porcelains for functional purposes.

Generally porcelain veneers can help you to achieve a beautiful smile; porcelains will conceal damaged teeth and enhance your natural tooth color. The porcelains will be taken from the thickness of one porcelain layer up to 3 layers, depending on how much porcelain is needed to cover your teeth.
Dental porcelain veneers cost can range from $500 to $5000 depending on porcelain color and thickness. Consult with your dentist to determine the severity of your case and to develop a treatment plan. Most trustworthy dentists will propose the treatment plan cost before pushing you towards getting the treatment.
Porcelains veneer life depends on the porcelains condition, how well you care for your porcelains and whether the porcelain has been exposed to extreme pressure (chewing). Due to porcelains porosity, porcelain veneers are not as strong as porcelain laminates, so porcelains may crack or chip if they are damaged. Porcelain laminates can last up to 10 years with proper care and maintenance. In addition porcelains porosity makes porcelains more sensitive to stains and porcelain discoloration is more common than porcelain laminates.
Porcelain porosity also makes porcelains more sensitive to stains and porcelain discoloration is more common than porcelain laminates.
Dental porcelains veneers will require special care and maintenance during the period of their service life. To keep your porcelains looking great we recommend you brush twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush and a porcelain specific toothpaste. Brush porcelains gently to avoid porcelain discoloration that may result from too much rubbing. Porcelains should also be cleaned after each meal during their lifetime.
There are many non invasive alternatives to porcelain veneers some of which are more effective than others. Some options may be detrimental to your teeth and not provide the best outcomes whereas other products will have a permanent solution. Thus, it is important for you to first consult with your dentist before choosing and proceeding with any procedure.
Yes, insurance may cover porcelain veneers. It’s possible that your dental insurance will at least partially cover the cost of veneer treatment. It is important to contact your individual dentistry plan or the one for your spouse’s employer to find out if you have complete coverage for all procedures and products like porcelain veneers. Sometimes, it can be more expensive than anticipated, so research in advance before taking preventative measures for our teeth health!
The porcelain used in these materials is highly durable so repeated biting forces do not cause stress fractures. To sum up, the advantages of porcelains include their resistance to wear, toughness, and ability to contour closely to all tooth shapes whether it be the curvature of a premolar or maxillary molar due its flexible nature.
Porcelain veneers can easily get stains on them. They have to be cared for in the same ways a natural tooth does (if they are not treated with any type of polish), such as avoiding anything acidic or hard like foods or drinks which will cause staining, brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. The porcelain is sensitive material so you should only use toothpaste that has sensitivity in it and always brush side to side (to avoid scratching). Lastly, mouthwash is okay after meals but make sure you keep alcohol content at 0% because it will dilute the enamel sealant over time.
Yes. Veneers can be whitened with a weekly brush down with peroxide paste to remove plaque and make them look whiter.
But they cannot be whitened as drastically as your natural teeth might be because of the potential for damage to the tooth structure if not done carefully. This is why it’s important to get a consultation from us before any dental procedure, so we can help determine what will work best for you and your smile.
A porcelain veneer is simply replacing tooth surface coated with composite resin for cosmetic purposes or for restoring teeth that have broken down from heavy decay, trauma, or grinding habits. Porcelain veneers are totally reversible by placing more composite on top of it to eat away at the thin shell until the underlying tooth structure is exposed again, then polish and seal everything up! The final result will be back to normal.
