Veneers On Teeth – Your Teeth Restoratives

  • Share

Veneers are used to change the color and shape of your teeth and can be made of plastic or porcelain. Veneers on teeth help in correcting the irregularities of teeth like small teeth, big teeth, uneven teeth formation, chipped teeth, broken teeth etc. They are used as an alternative to crowns and are glued over to your front teeth without the need of a local anesthesia. In most cases of veneers, dentists do not have to remove much of the tooth when compared to crowns and are stain-free due to their ceramic quality.

Cosmetic dentists specialize in these veneers on teeth and there are two types of veneers – Composite and Porcelain. Porcelain veneers are more commonly used for that perfect smile. These veneers are made of very thin, porcelain material and are also called indirect veneers. It takes about two sittings of 1 ½ hours each to fit these porcelain veneers. These veneers can last for 10-15 years and are translucent and stain-free. Composite veneers or direct veneers need just 1 sitting and is just applied directly onto the tooth’s surface with bond and enamel.

It takes about two weeks to get used to Porcelain Veneers and if more teeth have been removed for fixing these, the trauma to the tooth is more. There is also the sensitivity factor to be taken into account due to the presence of these veneers.

There is also the Lumineer Veneer Procedure which also needs two sittings and no anesthesia but there is any need for a temporary veneer unlike porcelain veneers, which require temporary veneers till the final tooth restoration pieces are ready. These veneers are made of Cerinate Porcelain, are thin like contact lenses and measure .2mm in thickness.

So, how much do veneers cost? Thailand, Malaysia, India, Turkey and Singapore are some countries that can offer you a 80% savings on the cost of these veneers when compared to US. Another factor to keep in mind is the clinic you visit, the Cosmetic dentist’s experience, the location of the clinic, the materials you choose, etc. Never compromise on quality so research well before deciding.
