What Are Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin layers of durable compounds used to coat the teeth. They are also known as laminate, laminate veneer, dental laminate or porcelain laminates. The delicate materials used in this process are reinforced to withstand pressure, heat and chemicals like acids in the food and drinks. In the modern age, as dentistry further focused on minimally invasive, gentle approaches to operating, veneers exploded in popularity. Veneers can be crafted and placed with minimal discomfort and quickly. Thanks to the powerful adhesives used to ensure stability, the durable veneers offer decades of protection to teeth for a considerably small cost and an easy operation. This makes veneers one of the most popular dental treatments by far.

What Are Dental Veneers Used For

Dental veneers are used to close gaps between teeth known as diastema. Especially for patients complaining of discoloration, veneers are an excellent alternative to whitening. Although the ideal treatment for diastema is often considered to be orthodontics, the lengthy and uncomfortable treatment process makes this option unattractive for many people. In these cases, veneers are a good alternative both from medical and aesthetic perspectives. Chipped teeth and other problems caused by old fillings can all be easily fixed with veneers. Veneers applied to the front teeth have exceptionally great results as these teeth are the major contributor to smile aesthetics and they are often the most visible teeth in social circumstances. In conclusion, veneers are a safe, quick and easy way to fix a plethora of problems that might have been causing health and self-confidence issues.

What Are Dental Veneers Made of

There are some preparations that are in order before the operation. It is very important that oral and dental hygiene are at an excellent degree, so as to be able to accommodate the veneers. Aesthetic expectation is very high with veneers, as such, all imperfections on the other teeth, and any problems with the gums are cleared prior to the operation. A 3D sample is taken from the patients for modelling. If necessary, a thin step is created on the outer surface of the teeth using local anesthesia. A second measurement is then taken. This step might not be necessary depending on the condition of the teeth. These procedures last quite a bit shorter than the operation.

Dental Veneer Lab

Following the measurements, a unique and perfect fitting set of veneers start production in the lab. Reinforced veneers are drafted using CAD/CAM and other 3D computer technologies. The veneers are produced in 5-6 days, ready to be placed. This could take shorter depending on the condition of the patients teeth. Then a trial veneer is demonstrated to make sure that you are happy with what the dentist is about to make permanent. If in this case, you are not satisfied with the aesthetic outcome of the veneer crafted for you, adjustments can be made until it is perfect for you. Moving ahead, the veneers are adhered on top of the teeth with a strong but safe and biocompatible adherent.

Veneers are often made out of e-max porcelain alloys. Zirconium veneers, on the other hand, are found to be a much better option to be used as material.

Veneers vs Crowns

Veneers are helpful in treating dental problems with minimal invasion. It’s a highly advanced, gentle and easy process with very little discomfort afterward. Furthermore, since the operation involves such little disruption to the natural teeth, the recovery time is very quick. The material used is specifically made to be light permeable just like the natural tooth, adding further to the natural look of the results. Since each veneer is crafted specially for each patient, unique patterns and color scales are able to be achieved, making sure distinction between the veneer and natural tooth colors is very difficult. The material is highly resistant to heat, pressure, corrosion and discoloration by common food and beverage items such as coffee and tea.
