Home » Services » Veneers

In the past, veneers, which were made to reshape the teeth and increase the smile aesthetics, caused some problems as they required a large amount of abrasion and reduction in the teeth. But nowadays, with the development of porcelain laminates, it has become much easier to achieve a beautiful smile.

Porcelain veneers, which have been used in the treatment of teeth or tooth deficiencies for many years due to various reasons, are still one of the most applied treatment methods today. Currently, the most applied dental prostheses are metal-supported porcelain veneers.



Frequently asked questions on Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are commonly made from either porcelain or composite resin materials. Here are the types of veneers:

  1. Porcelain veneers: These are made of high-quality porcelain that closely mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. They are highly durable and resistant to stains.
  2. Composite resin veneers: These are made from a tooth-colored composite resin material that is bonded to the tooth. They are less expensive than porcelain veneers and can be applied in a single visit.
  3. Minimal preparation veneers: These are ultra-thin porcelain veneers that require little to no removal of tooth enamel before placement.
  4. Removable veneers: These are temporary veneers made from a resin material that can be removed at any time.
  5. Pressed ceramic veneers: These are made using a special ceramic material that is pressed and fired, resulting in a very strong and durable veneer.
  6. Lumineers: These are a type of porcelain veneer that is so thin (about as thin as a contact lens) that little to no tooth reduction is required before placement.

The choice between composite bonding and porcelain veneers ultimately depends on your individual needs, goals, and budget. Here are some factors to consider when making a decision:

  1. Durability: Porcelain veneers are generally more durable and resistant to stains than composite bonding. They can last up to 10-15 years with proper care, while composite bonding may need to be replaced every 5-7 years.
  2. Appearance: Porcelain veneers have a more natural, translucent appearance that closely mimics the look of natural teeth, while composite bonding may appear slightly less natural.
  3. Cost: Composite bonding is generally less expensive than porcelain veneers, but may require more maintenance and repairs over time.
  4. Time: Porcelain veneers require two or more appointments and may take several weeks to complete, while composite bonding can often be done in a single visit.
  5. Tooth structure: Porcelain veneers require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel, while composite bonding typically requires less or no removal of tooth structure.

Ultimately, it’s important to discuss your options with a qualified dentist or cosmetic dentist who can evaluate your individual needs and help you make an informed decision based on your goals, budget, and overall oral health.

Getting a dental veneer typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation: The first step is to schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist to discuss your goals, concerns, and options for veneers. The dentist will examine your teeth, take x-rays, and determine whether veneers are a suitable option for you.
  2. Preparation: If you decide to move forward with veneers, the next step is to prepare the teeth. This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the teeth to make room for the veneers. Local anesthesia may be used to numb the area during this process.
  3. Impression: Once the teeth are prepared, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth using a putty-like material or a digital scanner. This impression will be used to create a custom-made veneer that fits your teeth precisely.
  4. Temporary veneers: While your permanent veneers are being created in a dental laboratory, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth to protect them and improve their appearance.
  5. Bonding: When your permanent veneers are ready, the dentist will remove the temporary veneers and clean your teeth. The veneers will then be placed on your teeth and adjusted for fit and color. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the look and feel of the veneers, they will be bonded to your teeth using a special dental adhesive and a curing light.
  6. Follow-up: After the veneers are placed, you will need to schedule follow-up appointments with your dentist to ensure they are functioning properly and to address any concerns you may have. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last for many years.

Dental veneers offer several advantages, including:

  1. Improved appearance: Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen, or have gaps between them. They can also improve the symmetry and overall appearance of your smile.
  2. Durability: Porcelain veneers are highly durable and can last for 10-15 years or longer with proper care. Composite veneers can last 5-7 years with proper maintenance.
  3. Stain resistance: Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains from coffee, tea, and other common food and drink stains.
  4. Conservative treatment: Veneers require less removal of tooth structure than dental crowns and can often be placed with minimal discomfort.
  5. Versatility: Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues, including staining, chipping, and spacing between teeth.
  6. Easy maintenance: Veneers can be maintained with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups, just like natural teeth.
  7. Boost in self-confidence: Veneers can give you a brighter, more confident smile, which can improve your overall self-confidence and quality of life.

It’s important to discuss the advantages and potential risks of veneers with a qualified dentist or cosmetic dentist to determine whether they are the right option for you.

While dental veneers offer several advantages, there are also some potential drawbacks to consider. Here are some possible disadvantages:

  1. Cost: Dental veneers can be expensive, and may not be covered by dental insurance. The cost can vary depending on the type of veneer and the complexity of the procedure.
  2. Irreversible: The process of placing veneers requires the removal of a small amount of enamel from the tooth surface. This is an irreversible process, and once the enamel is removed, it cannot be replaced.
  3. Sensitivity: Some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity after getting veneers, particularly to hot or cold temperatures.
  4. Risk of damage: Veneers can be damaged by biting into hard or crunchy foods, or by using the teeth as tools.
  5. Maintenance: While veneers are easy to maintain with regular brushing and flossing, they may require additional maintenance or repair over time.
  6. Not suitable for severe dental issues: Veneers may not be suitable for severe dental issues, such as significant tooth decay or gum disease. In these cases, other dental treatments may be necessary.
  7. Color matching: Achieving an exact color match between the veneers and your natural teeth can be challenging, particularly if you have discolored or stained teeth.

It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of veneers with a qualified dentist or cosmetic dentist to determine whether they are the right option for you.
