Most people want to have a beautiful smile that they are happy to share with the people around them. But life can take a toll on your smile and prevent you from wanting to flash it at the people you know. Getting veneers is a great way to improve your smile and be excited to share it with everyone you see! There are both permanent and temporary veneers that you can use depending on your specific needs. Which one is right for you? Continue reading to find out!


What are Temporary Veneers?

One option is temporary veneers. This type of veneer is ready-made, not custom-fit for your teeth. If you get temporary veneers, you will usually choose from premade resin veneers, so your dentist will help you select the one that is the best fit for your mouth.


Temporary veneers are a great short-term solution to the look of your teeth. Sometimes they are less comfortable than permanent options since they aren’t designed for your mouth in particular. Temporary veneers are a great option to protect your teeth after a procedure or if you want to try them out before getting permanent veneers. 


What are Permanent Veneers?

On the other hand, permanent veneers are a longer-lasting solution that is designed to fit your mouth. Because of the improvements in technology over the past few decades, permanent veneers can now be designed to perfectly match your teeth so you can feel comfortable sharing your smile with everyone you see. Getting veneers is much simpler than it was in the past, but you still want to make the right choice of a dentist when you decide to get them.


Generally speaking, you want to go to a dental professional who specializes in porcelain and composite resin veneers. Porcelain veneers are manufactured in a lab and typically take two or more visits to implant in your mouth. Composite veneers can be applied by your dentist, usually in one visit.


Which is Right For Me?

So which type of veneer is right for you? Temporary veneers take less time to apply and can be a short-term fix while you wait for your permanent veneers. However, they are not custom-fit for you and will not last as long. Permanent veneers are a long-lasting solution to a beautiful smile that is custom-made just for you.
