A Simple & Fast Solution to Your Teeth Imperfections
What are Veneers?
Dental veneers are one of a few solutions you can choose from to achieve the desired look of your teeth. They are thin pieces of tooth-coloured porcelain or resin-composite can be sticked on the front part of your teeth.
They are designed to look like natural teeth.
What Dental Problems Are Suitable For Veneers?
Veneer procedures are a common and popular treatment for a variety of dental cosmetic problems, such as:
There Are Two Types Of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearances.
Porcelain veneers are better at resisting stains and mimicking the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. They are strong, long-lasting, and require less tooth enamel to be removed than a dental crown – another type of dental cosmetic procedure that covers the entire tooth.
The process of getting porcelain veneers requires more preparation work compared to other types of veneers. However, once fitted, they can last up to 10 to 15 years.
To get porcelain veneers fitted onto your teeth, our dentists at Dental Home will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneer placements.
After that, our dentists will make an impression of the teeth and decide the shades of the veneers that will suit your smile best.
The impression will then be sent to a dental lab to create the custom porcelain veneers. This may take a few days.
On your next visit, our dentists will place the veneers onto your teeth and check whether they fit perfectly. Your teeth will be cleaned after the veneers are bonded.
Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resin veneers are dental cements made of synthetic resins. They are tooth-coloured filling materials that can be bonded to your teeth to cosmetically improve the look of your smile.
The benefits of composite resin veneers are less removal of enamels compared to porcelain veneers and dental crowns. The procedure is cheaper than porcelain veneers and could be completed in just one visit.
They are easy to fix if they are damaged, but they are not as strong or wear-resistant as porcelain veers. They can last up to 5 to 7 years.
To get composite resin veneers fitted onto your teeth, our dentists at Dental Home will prepare and reshape your teeth. We then carefully bond and sculpt the composite materials using colours that best suit you.
Following that, our dentist will use a special light to harden the composites to allow them to fit onto your teeth. They will be smoothened and polished to get a natural look.
Our dentists will advise which type of veneers is the best for you, depending on your teeth condition.
