INTRODUCTION TO DENTAL VENEERS
WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS?
Dental veneers (also referred as dental porcelain laminates or porcelain veneers) are customised tooth-coloured thin shells that adhere to teeth, designed to cover the front surface of teeth to give teeth a more aesthetic shaped look and improve your appearance. They are made of porcelain ceramic, resin composite or lithium disilicate that is designed to imitate natural teeth.
Dental veneers are a very popular option for people who has misshapen, chipped or broken teeth. Veneers are custom made to match the colour, size and general shape of a patient’s teeth. Additionally, they aid to improve smiles by providing flawlessly aligned teeth.
Although veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry, they also have protective properties. This could eliminate the need for more extensive treatments in the future.
TYPES OF DENTAL VENEERS
There are several types of dental veneer options available to choose from. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain ceramic, lithium disilicate or resin composite materials. Dentists are dedicated to assisting patients in achieving their ideal smile. For further details please see our article on types of dental veneers. "TYPES OF DENTAL VENEERS"
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REPLACE MISSING TEETH WITH DENTAL VENEERS?
Every individual may experience a missing tooth due to different reasons. Various treatment methods such as a dental implant, prosthesis and zirconium dental veneer can be used to replace missing teeth. The implant method can generally be used for patients with one or more missing teeth. On the other hand, the prosthesis method is more suitable for patients with several missing teeth. If zirconium veneer is to be applied for more than one tooth, it can be applied together with bridge treatment. Unlike traditional dental operations, which are both costly and time-consuming, dental veneers for missing teeth are a cost-efficient and highly effective way to replace missing teeth. “DENTAL IMPLANT”
As a result, although there are different methods that can be applied as a solution to missing teeth; patients can benefit from zirconium treatment for missing teeth
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM VENEERS?
Veneers may be the most effective technique to create a flawless smile. During the initial consultation, the dentist will examine the patient’s teeth and medical history in order to determine whether veneers are the best option. It is critical to remember that veneers are generally a cosmetic procedure. Therefore, serious issues like tooth decay and any other oral issues must be addressed before getting veneers.
Veneers are an ideal choice for people who have:
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Teeth that have been worn down
- Minor flaws in the teeth, such as chips and cracks
- Teeth that are not evenly spaced
- Teeth with gaps
- Teeth damage caused by eating disorders
- Traditional tooth whitening treatments are ineffective in treating tooth discolouration or stain
WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR VENEERS?
Whilst many people with minor discolouration, tooth damage or misalignment can benefit from veneers, there are some situations in which veneers are not appropriate:
- Large-scale restorations in the past. If the tooth has already been previously restored several times, a crown may be a better treatment than a veneer.
- Significant gum disease. All gum issues must be treated prior veneer procedure.
- People who grind their teeth. Porcelain veneers are extremely strong, but the tremendous wear and tear that occurs in a bruxer's mouth can cause chips and fractures in the veneer. To get identical results to porcelain veneers, the dentist may recommend an alternative treatment (for example, clear braces and tooth whitening).
- Limited tooth substrate. People who have poor-quality enamel or not enough enamel for bonding.
- If the patient has gingivitis, cavities or broken teeth.
Overall the patient’s teeth or gums need to be healthy for porcelain veneers to be placed.
WHY DO PEOPLE CHOOSE VENEERS?
One of the main reasons why people choose veneers over other cosmetic procedures is that they are easy to clean and maintain. As the thin shells lie directly on top of the existing teeth, the patient will start to think that veneers are their natural teeth soon after they're installed. This makes it simple for the patient to floss and brush as usual to maintain their oral hygiene.
Additionally, the procedure is straightforward, simple and quick. Once bonding is complete, the individual can immediately resume daily activities.
Overall dental veneers are popular among patients since they are a cost-effective treatment choice. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth without the need for braces or dental crowns. “DENTAL CROWNS”
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DENTAL VENEERS?
Veneers may cause the following side effects:
- Teeth sensitivity: During the first weeks after veneer application, tooth sensitivity may be experienced. If sensitivity persists for an extended period of time (i.e more than 3 to 6 months) speak with your dentist about treatment options.
- Gum inflammation: The gum tissues might take some time to adjust to the new veneers which could cause minor inflammation and/or discomfort in the gums.
- General discomfort: The procedure for placing dental veneers could potentially cause some discomfort.
- Colour irregularities: There is a small chance that the veneers will not be a perfect match for the surrounding teeth's colour. Discolouration and staining are particularly common when the dentist seals the veneers with too much moisture.
- Tooth Damage: Although it is uncommon there is a possibility of dentin damage during the enamel removal procedure.
Despite the above side effects, the benefits clearly outweigh the risks. Dental veneers will fix any colour, shape, size, or length concerns. As a result, the patient will have the beautiful, bright smile of his/her dreams.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE AND HOW TO CARE FOR DENTAL VENEERS?
Following the treatment, the patient requires a follow-up consultation to assess how the veneers fit. Furthermore, the dentist will examine how the veneers interact with the gums. Dental veneers don't necessitate any special care. Maintaining good oral care including brushing, flossing and using mouthwash would be sufficient. To ensure that cleaning does not disrupt the veneers' surface, a non-abrasive toothpaste may be recommended. Despite the fact that porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, the dentist may advise avoiding stain-causing foods and beverages (such as coffee and tea). Additionally, excessively hard foods (for example hard sweets, ice, raw carrots) should be avoided on veneered teeth, just as they should be avoided on natural teeth.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VENEERS AND CROWNS?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the surface of a tooth. They are aesthetically pleasing because they enhance a patient's look by altering the form and colour of their teeth.
Crowns are more durable than veneers and are used to restore teeth that have been significantly damaged or cracked. The entire tooth is covered by a crown. Due to its thickness (two millimetres vs one millimetre) in comparison to veneers more enamel removal is required before application.
Overall the primary distinction between a crown and a veneer is how they are applied to your teeth and the motive for getting them. A crown covers the entire tooth, whereas a veneer typically covers only the front. Also crowns usually last much longer than veneers.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VENEERS AND TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening is used solely to brighten and whiten your teeth. Veneers are long-lasting restorations, whereas at-home or professional teeth whitening is only a short-term solution. If the patient has severe discolouration that cannot be removed with teeth whitening, they may need a veneer to hide the problem. Veneers are a popular treatment option for those who have discoloured, decayed, or stained teeth.
Furthermore, a combination of veneers and teeth whitening procedures could be considered. Depending on the patient’s teeth, the dentist could place 4-10 veneers on the front teeth and use a professional whitening procedure on the rest. This means the patient can receive a complete smile makeover without veneering every tooth.
Overall, even though veneers are a more expensive option, they provide long-lasting and more effective outcomes in the long term compared to teeth whitening.
