NATURAL COLOR AND TOP AESTHETICS
When we talk about veneering teeth, composite is the material with the lowest price. Specifically, composite veneers cost about 5 times less than zirconium or ceramic, the latter being at a relatively similar price level.
Ceramic is the most used material in dental veneers, and this is due not only to the quality, but also to the resistance that porcelain has. Compared to the composite material, the ceramic has a color that lasts a much longer time.
Most ceramic, composite or zirconium veneers can be applied by minimally invasive grinding procedures, ie with minimal sacrifice of dental tissue. However, there are cases in which the ceramic veneers can be cemented directly on the teeth, without polishing their enamel. The veneers that can be applied in this way are called dental veneers without sanding No Prep, ceramic being the only material that can meet this criterion of non-invasiveness.
Compared to composite veneers, ceramics have a high cost, but the two main advantages, aesthetics and durability, justify the price.
NOT INDICATED IN BRUSSISM
Ceramic veneers are not indicated for patients with bruxism because they can scratch antagonistic teeth.
