When you want to veneer your teeth, you need to know what type of veneer is right for your teeth. Of course, this depends on the purpose of the cover. For example, to beautify the shape and color of the teeth, you may want to either veneer them, or your goal is to repair and protect the teeth, and sometimes the teeth need to be veneered.


In any case, before deciding on the types of veneers, you should know how each type of veneer differs from each other and in what situation they are used.

What is a dental veneer?

The veneer is a crown-like cap that rests on the tooth and completely covers it so that it practically chews on the veneer. Therefore, the design of the veneer should be such that its function is exactly like your own teeth.


All-ceramic veneers

Dental ceramics are made of durable materials that are both aesthetically pleasing and durable. All-ceramic veneers have no metal parts and are made entirely of ceramic. All-ceramic veneers are usually used for the front teeth, which are clearly visible when talking and smiling, because they are very similar in beauty to real teeth.


The ceramic used to make dental veneers is white and you can choose the color any way you want. This type of veneer is semi-transparent, meaning that part of the light penetrates into it and part of the light is scattered, which is why it looks like tooth enamel.


Ceramic veneer is not porous and does not change color easily, and on the other hand, it can be polished, so in terms of beauty in the long run, you are comfortable.


Although today's dental ceramics are much better than in the past, all-ceramic veneers are still less durable than metal veneers and metal-ceramic veneers. Therefore, it may not be suitable for teeth that are under high pressure.

Zirconia veneers are a subset of all-ceramic veneers. Zirconia or zirconium oxide is a very strong substance, but since it is relatively new, it has not passed the test of time and its results are not known in the long run. All-ceramic veneer does not cause metal allergies.

Metal ceramic tooth veneer

Ceramic metal veneer, also known as welded metal ceramic veneer or pfm pfm, is actually a metal frame and frame in the core on which a layer of ceramic is stretched for both beauty and strength.

Ceramic veneers are very strong and durable, so they can be used for teeth that are under pressure, but in order to prevent the metal structure inside the opacity of the veneer, these types of veneers are less transparent, so it is less similar to real teeth than The veneer is all ceramic.
Both ceramic veneers and metal ceramic veneers may fill the lips. But metal ceramic veneers do not break because they have a strong metal frame, but all-ceramic veneers may break completely.


Normally it does not matter, but it is more important for people who put a lot of pressure on their teeth due to misalignment (orthodontic problems) or severe grinding teeth.


All-metal dental veneer

The metal cladding may be made entirely of gold and precious metals, or the all-metal cladding may be steel cladding. Gold plating is very strong and does not cause any reaction or irritation to the gums, but it is expensive.

Steel alloy, which is made of steel alloy, is very good in terms of strength and durability, but not very interesting in terms of beauty because no one likes to have metal teeth in the mouth.


Steel veneer is the cheapest type of veneer, so it is mostly used for children's deciduous teeth or as a temporary veneer. Some people may be allergic to the metal of these types of coatings.

Be sure to consult your dentist to choose the type of veneer because the position of the teeth in the mouth, your oral habits and the health of your mouth are important in determining the type of veneer.
