What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are an extremely thin, durable, shell-like cosmetic dentistry prosthesis, which is specially designed for the facial surfaces of teeth in order to mask the unsightly appearance of teeth and impart a youthful smile. Dental veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth with the help of bonding cement. These help in the aesthetic modification of color, shape, length, and width of teeth. Dental veneers do not provide a complete coverage of the teeth and are conservative in nature.
What are dental veneers made of?
Dental veneers can be fabricated with either resin composite materials or dental porcelains.
What are the different types of dental veneers?
Two major types of dental veneers can be provided to you by Dr. Moyer.
Direct veneers are placed directly on the surfaces of teeth with no preparation or minimal preparation. Dental composite resins are the ideal materials used for direct placement. These are used to correct minor defects of front surfaces of teeth. Direct veneers are sometimes known as lumineers.
Indirect veneers are provided in multiple visits and require adequate tooth preparation. Indirect veneers are fabricated mainly from dental porcelains. Dental resin composites can also be used for making indirect veneers. An impression of the prepared tooth is sent to the dental laboratory for the construction of indirect veneers. These are indicated in cases of major tooth defects.
When should I opt for porcelain veneers?
Dr. Moyer will advise you to opt for porcelain veneers for staining and discoloration of teeth due to tetracycline antibiotics and drugs, fluorosis owing to excessive fluoride intake, root canal treated teeth, and heavily restored teeth:
Why are porcelain veneers better?
Porcelain veneers have certain advantages over dental resin composite veneers:
Will my teeth become sensitive with porcelain veneers?
In some cases, mild temporary sensitivity can develop soon after placement of porcelain veneers due to the removal of tooth structure during preparation. However, it goes away after some time.
Will my porcelain veneers last forever?
Dr. Moyer estimates the lifetime for a porcelain veneer in the range of 5–15 years. It can vary due to your dietary habits and oral hygiene maintenance habits. Composite veneers have a shorter life than their porcelain counterparts.
