Let us see the benefits of veneers in detail.
About dental veneers
Veneer treatment are made by cosmetic dentists. The procedure itself is simple as your dentist shaves away half a millimeter (it is a thinner layer than your fingernails) of your front teeth, however in order to obtain the smile the patient dreams of it requires careful planning. The next step is that a mold of your treated front teeth is taken and you get temporary veneers. You are wearing the temporary veneers for a period of 3-7 days, depending on the number of veneers you will have. During this period the dental lab prepares your veneers. Before the final fitting veneers are checked again and they are only bonded if they are perfect. The treatment is available in two different types:
- Direct veneers: Prepared in one appointment, no dental lab work is required. They are not as aesthetic as indirect veneers however a bit less tooth material is shaved away.
- Indirect veneers: Preparation of these veneers requires at least three appointments. Until you get your veneers you wear temporary veneers which are less aesthetic and shiny, but they are only to cover and protect your front teeth temporarily.
For the perfect aesthetic look indirect veneers are available in two types: Zirconium veneers and E-Max full porcelain veneers. Both types provide perfect look there are only very little differences in between them.
Zirconium veneers are a bit stronger and they are a good choice for restoring darker front teeth. E-Max porcelain veneers provide a tiny bit more natural look.
The whole treatment is performed under local anesthesia so you will be numbed.
Veneer treatment in Budapest takes in between 3-7 workdays depending on the number of teeth treated. This time frame is needed for the dental lab to do a perfect job as there are more appointments at the dentist in order to make your veneers perfect in terms of color, shape and look. Veneers are metal free and do not get discolored and scratched. They provide a full natural look. If change is needed the whole process restarts.
Veneers, if there is proper care and annual check-up at the dentist, last for 15-20 years, but sooner or later they must be changed. Old veneers are removed and new ones are made, no more valuable tooth material will be shaved away.
There are some cases when veneers can not be used for aesthetic purposes, but zirconium or full porcelain crowns are needed. It is good news that porcelain veneers and crowns can be used mixed on your teeth if it is needed for aesthetic results.
If you grind your teeth while sleeping you are recommended to use a night guard splint in order to protect your veneers.
