We always want our teeth to be healthy and strong. Although we prefer to have our own teeth for as long as possible, it is one of our unavoidable need to have artificial ones. The dental implant is the best option to replace our missing tooth/teeth with its/their artificial version(s). Because of its material, titanium, and the way it is applying, by using screws, it is becoming more and more preferred in time. And also, there is a surprising history beyond it: Titanium dental implant has been used for the teeth renovation surgeries since 1965.

Before reviewing the costs of dental veneers worldwide, we need to answer the question of what are teeth veneers. Teeth or dental veneers also called as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain used in cosmetic dentistry to recreate the natural look of the teeth while also helping strengthen the teeth which are broken, misaligned, chipped, uneven or worn down by covering the front surface of teeth. 

A dental crown, also known as a dental cap is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to improve its appearance by restoring its shape and size to strengthen it. It is a very popular dental restoration technique which can be applied either on a dental implant or the patient’s natural tooth. The dental crown completely encircles the tooth, protecting it from further damage or decay.

Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are very thin ceramic cells that go over the front facing side of the tooth. They can be manufactured from porcelain or resin composite materials. As there is no winner of the battle of porcelain veneers vs. composite veneers, the most preferred type of veneers is porcelain veneers. According to a recent study of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) reports that porcelain dental veneers are increasing by 250% over the past five years. Another statistic by the AACD also shows that 99.7% of Americans believe a smile is an important social advantage and 75% of them think that an unattractive smile may potentially harm a person’s chance for finding a job.
