Before you get ready for Veneers, you’ll, of course, have many questions in mind. So, here is the answer for all your questions.
What are dental veneers?
A “veneer “is a thin, semi translucent layer of material that is bonded to the surface of the tooth to correct a chipped, cracked or broken tooth or to change a color and shape of the tooth to enhance the appearance.
Types of dental veneers:
Porcelain Veneers are made up of thin pieces of porcelain that help to redesign the smile changing shape, size and color of the tooth. It also provides strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
In the first step, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create your match of veneers. 2nd step is the removal of the tooth surface, about 1/2mm of enamel. It is an equal amount of the thickness of veneers. And then final veneers is given to you.
It is an excellent choice for stain teeth, fractured teeth, gaps between teeth and minor correction in an alignment of teeth.
Porcelain material offers strong bond between teeth and veneer and enhances the success of veneers. The durability of porcelain veneers is also high along with creating natural tooth appearance. It also resists stains!
Composite veneers are made up of engineered Resin material (Tooth colored filling material). Minute teeth reduction is required to correct any discrepancy and to create space for the composite resin and thus it can be easily fixed in one visit after the initial consultation.
It represents a less expensive alternative option over the porcelain veneers. It cost half of what porcelain veneers do.
One of the advantages of this is – it could be removed and replaced easily.
The durability of this kind of Veneer is four to eight years but compare to Porcelain type, it is lesser. This type of veneer easily gets stained – not advisable for people who are addicted to Coffee and red wine. It also requires more maintenance in order to keep it long lasting.
Lumineers are contact-lens-thin porcelain veneers that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. Lumineers require no reduction in tooth structure. Because of that, there is some limitation of lumineers over the porcelain veneer.
