Types of Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed for your teeth that cover the front surface to improve the appearance of your smile. They are made of either porcelain or composite resin and bonded to your tooth's front. They fix broken, chipped, and discolored teeth and gaps between crooked teeth. Veneers are perfect for repairing their smile and improving self-confidence without a lengthy process like braces! At All Care Dentistry, veneers offer a transformative and versatile solution for enhancing the appearance of your smile. Whether you want to correct minor imperfections or completely transform the look of your teeth, veneers can help you achieve the smile you desire.

Types of Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Of all the cosmetic dentistry treatments, porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and customizable procedures. They provide patients with a way to address and customize various aesthetic imperfections involving the teeth’s appearance. The process consists of placing thin shells of dental ceramic pressed over the front of your teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance and strength.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers, also known as direct veneers, are made from a tooth-colored composite resin material. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite resin veneers are applied directly to the teeth and shaped by the dentist. Composite resin veneers are generally more affordable than porcelain veneers, making them popular for those seeking a cost-effective cosmetic solution. Composite resin veneers offer greater flexibility in shaping and contouring, allowing your dentist to adjust during placement to achieve the desired appearance.

The Procedure for Dental Veneers

In the first appointment, your dentist will clean your tooth and remove a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneer. They will also discuss your aesthetics to determine the best veneer color, size, and shape. They then take an impression of this tooth and send it to the lab where the veneer is created. In the meantime, a temporary veneer will be placed over the tooth until the permanent one is ready. When the permanent veneer is finished at the lab and sent back to the dentist's office, you must return to the dental office to have it placed. Once it is attached, you will be ready to go home and enjoy your smile! To maintain the longevity and appearance of your veneers, it's crucial to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, and avoid habits like nail-biting or teeth-grinding that can put excessive pressure on your veneers.
