Dental Veneers

The ceramic crown is made up of a ceramic base that is covered in a ceramic that matches your teeth's color. It blends in seamlessly with the rest of the teeth.

The ceramic-metallic crown: the metal structure is coated with a ceramic that gives it the appearance of natural enamel while remaining more opaque than the rest of your teeth.

Dental veneers were first used in the 1980s and have become increasingly popular in recent years due to advancements in medical materials and methods. This service has now become a viable alternative to crowns, which require more time and effort. Despite the lack of pain, veneer placement still necessitates preparation with your dentist; he will cut the enamel to produce a surface on which he will apply the glue, in order to secure the veneer under local anaesthetic so that the patient is not in any discomfort during the procedure.

What is the difference between a dental veneer and a dental crown?

A dental veneer is used to rectify or conceal minor flaws in your teeth, such as color, form, or alignment, in order to achieve a brilliant smile with teeth that are in harmony. They are glued to the visible section of the anterior tooth, often known as the front teeth, and are made of composite or ceramic.

There are two types of facets: composite and ceramic. Composite facets may have the same characteristics as dentin, but ceramic facets may be assimilated to enamel composition. Patients who do not want to be anesthetized might use the composite veneer.

Ceramic veneers are ultra-thin films with a very low thickness (between 0.2 and 0.3 millimeters) with a lifespan of up to ten years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, natural-looking teeth that are expertly created in a dental laboratory to look exactly like natural teeth. These are normally installed in two or three appointments and involve minor tooth preparation, such as removing a little portion of existing enamel to glue the veneers directly to your teeth. Composite veneers can be placed in just one appointment. The resin is put in layers straight to the tooth. If you have stained or slightly damaged teeth, such as a chipped or cracked tooth, composite veneers are a good choice.
The veneers are constructed of beautiful ceramic and provide natural whiteness and transparency to the teeth. The dental veneer is bonded to the visible face of the tooth, either with minimum preparation or without preparation and preservation of the intact tooth, depending on the circumstance. It protects the dental tissues and keeps the tooth alive. Ceramic inlays/onlays and metal ceramic dental crowns can also be used to replace outdated amalgam restorations (gray metal fillings).
