Types of Dental Veneers
There are two most common materials used to make dental veneers: composite and porcelain. Both types of veneers can be made by a dental technician in a dental laboratory. Porcelain material is the most popular and commonly recommended. Porcelain veneers procedure in Warsaw are firmly bonded to the teeth and can form a very strong and durable structure. They resist stains better than resin veneers and reflect light like natural teeth. Composite is a tooth-colored filling material that may be used to form dental veneers. They are thinner and so they require little removal of the tooth surface. Your dentist should recommend the best choice of the veneer material for you.
The benefits of porcelain veneers treatment:
- Durability – although porcelain veneers are very thin (0.5 – 0.7 millimeters), they become very strong while bonded to a healthy tooth structure. Porcelain veneers can last for many years, usually 10-15 years, but it is important to keep good oral hygiene.
- Natural tooth appearance – thanks to the translucent properties of the porcelain which allows the veneers to imitate the properties of natural enamel. It is not possible with other cosmetic bonding materials such as composite.
- Stain resistance – porcelain is a smooth, impervious ceramic and therefore will not absorb discoloration from cigarettes or colouring liquids and foods
- Non–invasive for the tooth – porcelain veneers are conservative, only a small part of tooth structure is removed during the procedure.
Possible drawbacks to keep in mind:
- Porcelain veneers are made in a dental laboratory and therefore require at least two visits in the dental clinic. Composite veneers are completed in one visit, because the fitting of the material is done directly on the tooth.
- Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite veneers. The procedure of porcelain veneers requires more time, expertise and resources in order to prepare and bond them
- Porcelain veneers cannot be repaired. If they break, the veneers must be replaced.
- Veneers are not recommended for patients with unhealthy or weak teeth (decay or active gum disease, fracture, large dental fillings)
- Your tooth may become more sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages, because your natural enamel will be removed
