A dental veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth. Generally, this is done either to protect a damaged tooth surface or for aesthetic reasons.
A composite dental veneer may be built up directly on the tooth, or custom fabricated by a technician and later bonded to the tooth. A porcelain veneer can only be fabricated before placement.
Dental veneers are a good way to correct chipped, damaged or stained teeth. The process is simple and safe. In regards to veneers cost, placement is generally affordable. Placement of veneers requires skill, precision and experience in cosmetic dentistry. So if you want that perfect, beautiful smile, dental veneers might be the perfect solution for you.
For individuals who already have crowns on teeth, veneers may give a more natural, pleasant appearance. Porcelain veneers are glass-like translucent ceramic. When light falls on the porcelain surface, light passes through it and is reflected by the teeth. The porcelain dental veneers give a very natural effect and add luster to the teeth, thus providing a beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers are custom made and should be fitted by skilled dentists who specialize in cosmetic dentistry.
An alternative to common dental veneers is Lumineers – a special kind of veneer that requires no alterations to natural teeth. Depending on the tooth, a Lumineer can be removed if needed. Lumineers are made of unique porcelain known as Cerinate. Take a look at our Before and After Teeth Makeovers.
If you’re not sure about porcelain veneers, consult with a cosmetic dentist who will help you make an informed decision.
