What Are Composite Veneers?

Composite veneers, also known as composite resin veneers or direct veneers, are tooth-colored shells applied to the front surfaces of your teeth. They’re cost-effective, durable, and naturally beautiful. 

A composite veneer can correct any of the following dental issues:

Types of Composite Veneers

Direct Composite Veneers

Direct composite veneers are made of composite resin and applied directly to the teeth. It doesn’t take long for a dentist to prepare your teeth for the application of the veneers, and it’s a minimally invasive process. 

Indirect Composite Veneers

Indirect composite veneers use the same material as direct composite veneers, but the veneers are custom-created before placement. You’ll wear temporary veneers while you wait for the creation of your permanent dental veneers. 

Composite Veneers Benefits

Benefits of composite veneers include:

  • Less tooth enamel is removed than porcelain veneers
  • The process can be completed in one visit to your dentist
  • Cost-effective
  • If damaged, they can be repaired easily 
  • Can correct various aesthetic problems, such as gaps, chips, and discoloration



Composite Veneers Procedure


Caring for Composite Veneers

Maintaining your composite veneers is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. To increase the longevity of your veneers, do the following:

  • Keep a consistent oral hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing regularly 
  • Avoid stain-causing food and drinks
  • Consistently visit your dentist for checkups and dental cleanings
  • Avoid hard foods and bad habits, such as chewing ice

Composite Veneers vs. Porcelain Veneers

Composite veneers and porcelain veneers are different forms of dental veneers that can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth, but there are some key differences between the two, including:


The most significant difference between composite and porcelain veneers is the material they’re made from. Composite veneers are made from a resin that’s similar to the material used in tooth-colored fillings. Porcelain veneers are made from a ceramic material that’s baked in a lab to create a veneer that’s more durable and resistant to stains.


Composite resin veneers are often applied in a single appointment, as the material is directly applied to the tooth and shaped by the dentist. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory based on an impression taken by the dentist, which typically requires at least two appointments.


Porcelain veneers generally have superior aesthetics, as they have a translucency that closely mimics natural tooth enamel. Composite resin veneers, while still aesthetically pleasing, may not have the same depth of color and translucency.


Porcelain veneers are known to be more durable than composite ones. They resist stains better and can last up to 10 to 15 years, while composite veneers typically last between five to seven years.


Composite veneers are generally less expensive than porcelain veneers, due to the difference in the material cost and the number of dental visits required.


Composite veneers are generally more reversible than porcelain because they require less, if any, removal of tooth structure. If a porcelain veneer needs to be removed, there may not be sufficient enamel remaining for a good cosmetic outcome without a new veneer.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, composite veneers cannot be whitened. If you’re looking for a teeth whitening treatment to enhance the brightness of your natural teeth, tell your dentist before receiving veneers.

With proper care and regular visits to the dentist, composite veneers typically last between five and seven years. However, they may need minor repairs during this period.

Composite veneers shouldn’t hinder your biting and chewing in any way or impact the way you eat foods. Once veneers are placed, they’ll be durable and strong. However, it may take a few days to adjust to the feeling of your dental veneers.
