Knowing the differences and pros and cons of porcelain veneers and the resin facets it is possible to conclude the choice of the best type of treatment for the patient.
With the recent improvement in the quality of resins, combined with better aesthetic results, this technique has been considered a safe option for porcelain veneers. The main factor for improving the mechanical and aesthetic properties of this type of laminate is the introduction of ceramic particles to the resins, increasing the range of indications and possibilities of this, which is the most used aesthetic procedure for dental lamination.
The advantages of resin veneers are the lower price of the treatment and the possibility of performing it in a single appointment, even for a large number of teeth. In this type of procedure, there is usually no need for tooth wear and the treatment is reversible. With a color system similar to that used in porcelain veneers, the technique offers natural colors and good anatomy, thus being ideal for those who want quick and low-cost aesthetic transformations.
The disadvantages are that the resin over time tends to change color, as they suffer from the action of pigments found in food, cigarettes and others. Resin is also considered to have a shorter shelf life than porcelain.
