Dental Veneers Hungary

Dental veneers have the ability to either rejuvenate or amplify the natural look of teeth. These slim shells, resembling teeth, are securely attached to the front surface of your teeth, aiming to provide a more aligned and brighter look. While primarily pursued for cosmetic reasons, veneers can also serve to repair teeth that have suffered damage such as chipping or minor breaking. But they also work if your teeth are healthy but you are not happy with the colour, size and shape.

What are veneers and how do they help?

If your teeth are healthy but do not look the way you want them and you want to reshape them with the least loss of tooth material, getting dental veneers in Budapest, Hungary will be the best solution for you. These thin layer of zirconia or porceain like your finger nails  will also solve your problem if you are not satisfied with the color, size or shape of your front teeth and  whitening does not improve the appearance.

Quick quote

It is a very thin layer of porcelain that covers the front part of your front region. They are like fake fingernails fitted over your nails. Dental professionals use them in many cases when orthodontics (braces) can not be applied to close inter-dental space or would last too long to achieve desired results.
This is also a solution to compensate for a little bit broken or chipped front tooth or in case it is not completely in line with your other front teeth. In addition, if your teeth got discolored or stained due to medications or coffee consumption. Veneers can restore the natural white color if bleaching was not effective.
All broken and chipped teeth need to be treated not only for aesthetic reasons, but also because all minor dental problems may lead to bigger ones without appropriate treatment. If your teeth are worn or you grind while sleeping then you can not have dental facing so the cosmetic dentist will recommend stronger and more durable solutions like crowns.

It takes a dental consultation to determine which cosmetic dental work you need. The advantage of veneers is that only a very thin layer of the enamel must be removed and after preparation a special glue is needed to keep them in place.

If you are a dental tourism patient then this treatment can be performed in a 5-10 day visit at our Budapest based clinic, depending on the number of teeth that need to be worked on. Treatment itself is very gentle. Many times, patients don’t need local anesthesia since this treatment does not require drilling or root canal.

How it works in Hungary

If you have decided to improve your smile in Hungary, your dentist will remove a very thin layer of the enamel during the first appointment. Then the dentist takes impression. You choose the preferred color using a shade guide.
After the first appointment it is highly likely that you not need to wear temporary solutions because your teeth surface must be protected as the thin protective layer of enamel is removed.
Now the dental lab starts to work on your veneers, and over the next appointments your dentist will test them. The shape, size and colour will all be tested so there will be a perfect fit and appearance. It takes some appointments and trials until the final version of veneers are made for your new perfect smile.
To make your new veneers last as long as possible, you have to maintain the same oral hygiene as before. So you shouldn’t chew and bite extra hard things like nuts.
Veneers are metal free and do not get discolored and scratched. Tiny chips can be fixed, but after a while they need to be changed for the perfect aesthetics. If you want to improve your smile in Hungary, get a quick quote here.

Two types of veneers available at our Budapest dental clinic

Visit our dental clinic in Budapest where two types of dental veneers are available for our patients: zirconium and E-max ones.

Direct composite veneers

They are are of the same material as white aesthetic fillings. This type of veneers is cheaper and more affordable and perfect for cases where little cracks must be covered but they are no so aetstehtic. So those who have high aesthetic expectations will not be happy with it.

Veneers not only cover the damaged part of your front area, but they also protect the rest of your front dentition. The downside of the this type is that they are not so long-lasting, probably you will need a replacement more often. That’s why our state-of-the-art dental clinic in Budapest offers only  zirconium and E-max veneers. Currently composite veneers are not available at the clinic. You can read more about composite veneers vs porcelain veneers here.

Zirconium veneers

Zirconium is a perfect choice for high-quality aesthetic dentistry. It is essentially very similar to the porcelain one, so the dental lab makes it after taking impression. Professionals at our clinic recommend zirconia when front is darker as this material does not let light go through it.

E-max veneers

E-max are high-quality all porcelain veneers. The quality and durability of them are second to none. They are very popular as they can make a complete match to your existing teeth and it is nearly impossible to differentiate them from your own ones. Another significant advantage is that since it is a very high quality material, less tooth material has to be removed during preparation.

Therefore, dental professionals use them in cases where there is only problem with the shade of the colour or the shape. E-max is more durable than zirconia. If you want to make your smile more aesthetic, please, send us some good quality pics of your front teeth to this and we will make you a quotation.

Should I choose porcelain veneers or crowns for my new smile?

Should you get veneers or crowns? Patients who want a new smile at our clinic usually prefer veneers to crowns because it takes less preparation and tooth material loss. Getting them is a less invasive intervention this is why it is more and more popular. However, it is not always possible to have a new smile with dental facing.  Let’s see when they can be the solution. Please, note, as each case is unique, your dentist will recommend you the ideal solution after a medical examination.

You are a good candidate for dental veneers in Hungary in the following cases:

  1. Teeth are not strongly discolored. They are very thin, they can not completely cover a darker color of your front area.
  2. There are only small or tiny fillings in your dentition. Fillings shrink as time is passing by and this process might generate tension after years.
  3. If you only want to cover the front (visible) part since dental facing do not cover your whole teeth.
  4. You want to close tiny gaps.
  5. Your did not have root canal treatment, yet.
  6. You do not grind.
  7. There is no crown fitted, yet.
  8. Minor misalignment of the front region must be corrected.
  9. Good news that veneers and crowns can be combined, however not on the same tooth. Porcelain can be combined because they are made from the same ceramic raw material. That is, if someone has 1-2 root canal treated teeth then these should be crowned, but the adjacent healthy ones can have veneers and no one will see the difference.
  10.  Veneers can not be placed on dental implants.
  11. To take an x-ray may be necessary for making a treatment plan and complete dental work.

How to take care of your dentition after smile improvement treatment

After your veneers have been fitted, you may experience sensitivity to hot and cold for a couple of days, but it will quickly go away. If you take proper care of your new teeth, they will last longer. They last 10-15 years.

After a while they must be changed as they break or get chipped or worn. Dental shells are not likely to fall off, crack or get chipped, but it is better to avoid biting your nails or chewing hard objects like pens or pencils.

Also, it is not recommended to chew with your front area. If you do dangerous sports, where your front dentition can be hit, your dental professional will recommend wearing mouth guards.

During treatment, the dentist eliminates 0.3-0.6 mm from external surface and 1.5 mm from edge surface. Impression is made from prepared teeth that provides the base of veneers carried out by dental technician. For the perfect occlusion of upper and lower arch, we need antagonist, namely the opposite arch of the prepared teeth, impression. At the first treatment, the prepared dental surface is covered by temporary ones. The color of them is decided at impression-taking.

Dental technique

Dental technique works require approximately 3-5 days. Waiting period may be reduced upon paying urgency charge. During previous smile-design, one may precisely decide on the shape, size, and location. Veneers are made of zirconia or of ceramics.

Temporary solutions

Temporary veneers are made of composite based material and are attached to prepared tooth surface immediately after grinding. These temporary types are used chiefly due to aesthetic reasons. Chewing and biting functions are of lower intensity.

Possible Complaints Subsequent to treatment

  1. Teeth may be sensitive to cold or warm. This is a natural accompanist of treatment. (In case of severe pain, we kindly ask you to consult your dentist).
  2. Temporary ones may slide off due to significant dynamic effect.
  3. The surface of temporary veneers may be raspier than the surface of regular teeth.
  4. The gum or the location of injection may be sensitive subsequent to treatment.

Subsequent to attaching

  1. Dentition may be sensitive to warm and cold for a few weeks.
  2. Certain parts may impede the perfect occlusion.
  3. Gluing material remains on the surface.

Possible complications

  1. Temporary ones may fall off due to mechanical effects. There is no guarantee for temp solutions.
  2. Due to the impact of treatment, dental pulp inflames and tooth requires root canal treatment.
  3. In very rare occasions, the attached veneer may fall off. This may be caused by nocturnal teeth gritting or incorrect biting.

Handing over

Attaching veneers is carried out 5-10 days later, normally under local anesthesia if required.


  1. After attaching veneers, new material and new shape is inserted in mouth. Both lips and tongue shall get used to the new conditions. During accustoming, one may consider teeth smaller or bigger than their original size is.
  2. Muscle tones of lips shall accustom to new conditions, too. The sliding of upper and lower lips on tooth surface may be unusual when laughing or talking.
  3. The modified air flow during talking and phonation may be atypical for a few days or perhaps for a week.
  4. One may encounter sensitivity to cold or warm after the attaching. It ceases within a few days, however, in certain cases a few weeks.
