What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, customized porcelain “shells” or “facings” that attach to your teeth and match the surrounding teeth. In most cases, you improve the alignment, color, and any other cracks or chips in your teeth in two appointments. Teeth can also appear less crooked once a permanent veneer is placed, improving the overall look of your smile.
What is dental composite bonding?
Dental bonding is also a great solution to improving the appearance of your smile while repairing cracked teeth, reducing gaps, and hiding tooth discoloration. It is a procedure in which resin material that matches your tooth color is bonded to the outer surface of your tooth.
What is the difference between veneers and bonding?
While both veneers and bonding improve your smile, they have differences in materials, methods, and cost. But the quick answer is that bonding involves putting a tooth-like resin onto your teeth to change the shape or to build it up. Veneers, on the other hand, involve putting a porcelain shell entirely over the tooth’s surface, effectively becoming part of the tooth. More usually a veneer will require removal of some tooth tissue, a “preparation” though there are some people who are suitable for “no preparation” veneers, also sometimes called lumineers. Your dentist can advise which options you may be suitable for and why.
Should I choose composite bonding or porcelain veneers?
We would always recommend that you ask your dentist which option is right for you. However, here are some quick facts to prepare you for that discussion with the dentist:
Dental Bonding might be ideal if:
The changes you want are minor and the teeth otherwise function normally.
You need a less expensive solution for your cosmetic dental needs.
You would like to have the procedure be quick and only involve one visit instead of multiple.
You’re committed to still taking good care of your teeth as normal, and remain avoiding teeth-staining food and drink, as bonding tends to still stain.
Veneers might be ideal if:
Your teeth are exceedingly broken, crooked, or stained.
You clench or grind your teeth often.
You require a more durable solution to your cosmetic dental needs.
You’re able to come to the office for more than one visit to have the procedure done.
You’re committed to taking care of your veneers just like your other teeth.
How do I care for my veneers?
Luckily, since the veneers, once bonded, are strong and durable you just need to treat them as normal. You should still brush and floss daily– you don’t need to be afraid of brushing them either. Any non-abrasive toothpaste will work. Let your dentist know if you grind your teeth, as he or she might create a bite guard for you to protect your veneers for as long as possible. Finally, we recommend regular dental checkups for the overall health of your teeth and veneers.
How long will porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers usually last around 10-15 years with some people having them for as long as 20! The differences in time depend on certain things that can affect the veneer. Just like a tooth accidents can sometimes happen but often you can rebond it to the tooth. Overall, with proper care, you can expect to have your veneers for years to come!
What is involved in a veneer procedure?
Generally, the dentist follows these steps
1) He or she will remove about half of a millimeter from your tooth enamel (the ‘preparation’). This is done because when you get the veneer placed, the thickness won’t feel as drastic and you mostly won’t be able to tell it is there.
2) The dentist takes a mold of your prepared teeth to send to a laboratory that creates the veneers. This typically takes about one week.
3) After the veneers are ready, you will schedule an appointment with your dentist to place them on your teeth.
4) Before the placement process, he or she will first check the fit and the color of the veneer to see if they match.
5) The dentist prepares your teeth by first cleaning them. Then he or she will typically numb your mouth for the remainder of the process. Finally, the dentist will gently roughen the surface of your tooth in order to improve the adhesion of your veneer.
6) While attaching the veneer, a special cement is used for adhesion of the veneer to your tooth. Then strong blue light rapidly hardens it.
7) The process is repeated for however many teeth are getting veneers.
8) Your dentist may want to schedule a follow up appointment to see if they are properly placed or if there are any problems.
What about no preparation veneers?
No preparation veneers, or Lumineers, are suitable for some patients, Where there is already enough room to build the teeth up without them looking too big or bulky, for example, or when people have gaps that need closing or subtle small changes in shape. Your dentist can advise if you are a suitable case for Lumineers and can guide you through the process. It is less destructive than traditional veneers and that is their advantage. Sometimes people who really want that perfect look can use these after orthodontic treatment has been done to align the teeth, for example.
How much do veneers cost?
It depends. There are several elements that go into the veneer process, including how many veneers you are getting, the cost of the x-rays and wax model, whether or not you need a bite guard, etc. Every plan is as individual as you and no two cases are ever really the same.
