Who is not a good candidate for dental veneers?

A study on the clinical performance of veneers shows that patients that tend to grind their teeth during the night should take precautions after a porcelain veneers procedure – wearing a nightguard is mandatory for some individuals, as the grinding can damage the veneers.


What you should do before the treatment? 

A dental veneers procedure does not require extensive preparations – it is a simple and safe procedure.


How dental veneer treatment is performed?

A dental veneer process needs to be divided into three separate appointments, two days apart. This study on dental veneers provides a more in-depth image of the procedure, materials, and techniques used.

In the first one, the dentist will begin preparing the patient’s teeth for the porcelain veneers – 3-5 mm from the front of the teeth’s enamel is removed by the dentist by the use of a small drill.

A mold is then taken and temporary veneers are placed. In the second appointment, the dentist will test the new dental veneers on the patient’s teeth and make adjustments, if they are necessary. In the last appointment, the surface of the patient’s teeth is roughened up so that the porcelain veneers can bind better to them. The veneers are placed and a binding agent is used to cement them in place.


Are dental veneers worth the risk?

A porcelain veneers procedure is a simple and safe cosmetic dentistry technique used in dental clinics from all around the world but there are certain considerations that need to be considered. A study on dental veneers shows that smokers and patients suffering from bruxism have a higher chance of developing complications.

The overall complications rate is around 7%. Dental veneers complications are rare, but they can include: 

• Increased sensitivity of the teeth 

• The veneers can get damaged for a wide range of reasons – they will need to be replaced 

• Placement issues 

• Colour irregularities between the porcelain veneers and natural teeth – smoking can affect the color of nearby teeth, making the veneers seem whiter by comparison.


Side effects of dental veneers 

Some patients may feel discomfort and some pain during the procedure. It is common to experience more teeth sensitivity for a few days after the treatment. 


How successful is dental veneer treatment?

A survey based on 84 porcelain veneers reviews reports the satisfaction rate of dental veneers at 93.5%, 10 years after the procedure is done.


What to expect from dental veneers before and after?

Veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Given their long lifespan and accessible price, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for any individual who wishes to improve their smile. Patients can ask for veneers before and after pictures before traveling abroad for treatment.


Which Veneers are better for you?

Veneers come in many different shapes, sizes, materials, and application techniques. This is why it’s a good idea to check the various types of veneers available and pick the ones that better fit your needs and expectations. Veneers are not created by your dentist, but by a dental technician, often in an off-site laboratory.

During your first visit to the dentist, the doctor will make an impression of the teeth that will hold the veneers. This impression will later be sent to a dental technician who will later fabricate the veneers, making sure they will fit securely over your natural teeth.

Once the new veneers arrive the dentist will proceed to remove a portion of the enamel from each tooth individually before using dental cement to permanently place them. The dental cement itself can be more opaque or more translucent, depending on the state and color of your natural tooth. Here is a short overview of the different types of veneers available for patients:

Stacked Ceramic Dental Veneers

Stacked ceramic veneers are produced from a large amount of very thin layers of porcelain stacked on top of each other. The number of layers can be altered until the veneers closely resemble the shape, color, and translucency of the patient’s natural tooth. Stacked ceramic veneers are generally better looking than other types of veneers but they are not as strong.

Pressed Ceramic Veneers

Pressed ceramic veneers are generally easier to produce, making them a bit more affordable compared to other options. They are also a bit thicker than stacked ceramic or lithium disilicate veneers, meaning that more of the patient’s enamel needs to be removed before placement. The biggest advantage of pressed ceramic veneers is their durability.

Zirconia Based Veneers

Zirconia-based dental veneers are one of the strongest types of veneers available. As such, zirconia-based veneers are often used on teeth affected by cavities or cracks.

Zirconia is such a strong material that it’s currently being used for dental crowns as well, meaning that your teeth are safe from any crack or fracture. Being opaque means that it can be used by the dentist to hide stains or cavities within the treated tooth.

Lithium Disilicate Veneers

Patients suffering from teeth grinding or bruxism can opt for lithium disilicate veneers. These veneers are the strongest available, being able to sustain pressure from teeth grinding and chewing hard foods. While also aesthetically pleasing, lithium disilicate veneers are also more expensive compared to other types of materials – these veneers are created using high-tech methods such as computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing. 

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are created from composite resin, which is also used for tooth fillings. Composite veneers can be used to treat chips, cracks, and discoloration of the teeth with a process called dental bonding. The dentist will create a resin that matches the color of the surrounding teeth before applying it to the tooth surface in layers.

The resin is then shaped and polished until the desired shape is achieved. Composite veneers may be more affordable than other types of veneers but they are not as durable and can develop stains after some time.
