Plastic veneers, bonding and porcelain veneers

Composite bonding (also sometimes called "direct veneers" or "plastic veneers") is a tooth-colored plastic resin material. Bonding can usually be placed in one visit and is used many times to repair a smaller chip in a tooth or to make aesthetic improvements in more than one tooth. Bonding usually requires little to no tooth reduction or anesthesia. Porcelain veneers are usually more aesthetic in terms of the spectrum of colors, realism and translucency because they are made in a lab out of porcelain. Porcelain veneers are also more of a long-term solution than bonding, as they do not stain, discolor, and are stronger than bonding. Porcelain veneers usually require only a couple of office visits - the first visit to prepare the teeth and the second to seat the veneers.

So which are better composite veneers or porcelain veneers?

The most popular type of veneers are porcelain, which offer a stronger and more durable alternative to its composite counterpart. Composite veneers are also more prone to staining and do not last as long as porcelain veneers which also offer more a natural looking, translucent tooth-like appearance. Composite veneers are much cheaper than porcelain veneers in general, but considering that they do not last as long and need replacing more often they could end up costing more in the long run.

Composite work is ideal for small chips as this treatment preserves more of your natural tooth structure.

How do porcelain veneers work? Treatment Process

The porcelain veneer procedure takes place over at least two office visits.
The first part of any dental procedure is the initial consultation and examination so that the dentist can get a feel for what you want and understand your needs and concerns. The dentist should explain the treatment procedure to you including an accurate guide to the likely costs of your treatment.

During your initial visit, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers. This may consist of simply roughening, reshape and prepare the front surfaces of your teeth so that they can accomadate the veneersor, in cases where the veneers are used to correct structural issues such as crowding, the teeth may be shaped more extensively in preparation.

Once your teeth are prepared, a precise impression will be taken of your teeth. This will be used to fabricate your personal porcelain veneers so they fit securely to the tooth surface. whilst you are waiting for your veneers to be fabricated your dentist you may be fitted with some temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth. Not all dentists will offer temporary veneers.

When you arrive for your next visit, your custom made porcelain veneers will be available for your inspection, and will then be bonded to the existing tooth, leaving you with the bright, white, youthful looking smile you've dreamed of.

The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to make room for the veneers. The dental lab then fabricates the veneers from impressions. After placement, the veneers look like natural teeth. Some advantages of porcelain veneers over bonding include increased longevity, and resistance to staining.

Maintenance and recommended care

With proper home care and scheduled dental visits, veneers can provide you with a beautiful smile for many years. A week or two after the placement of your veneers, we ask that you return to our office for a cosmetic polish and treatment evaluation. This visit is extremely important. It gives us the opportunity to evaluate the placement of the veneers, the tissue response and to answer any questions you might have regarding your new smile makeover. For example, if you grind or clench your teeth, please let us know. We can fabricate a soft night guard for you to wear to minimize the stresses placed upon your teeth while you sleep.

The maintenance of your porcelain veneers is relatively simple. Brush and floss as you normally would to prevent oral hygiene problems. Once placed, veneers are typically the kindest restoration to the gum tissues that we currently have available. Don't be afraid that you'll damage your veneers by either flossing or brushing. Any non-abrasive toothpaste is acceptable. A good home care regimen will help ensure the aesthetic success of your veneers.

Another important point is that oral habits such as nail biting, opening bobby pins and chewing on hard objects could damage your new veneers.

Dietary changes

Once placed, your veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet, so a normal diet should pose no problem at all. Porcelain has great crushing strength but poor tensile strength. Therefore, you should avoid anything that will bend or twist the veneers. Thus some precautions on eating habits as with bonding and crowing, As with your regular teeth, opening bottle caps with your teeth or biting into or crunching on hard candy or ice is not a good idea. They will not be as strong as enamel. Margins needs eventually resealing.

A Final Word

The decision to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers is a very personal one. Even a subtle change in your smile can make an exceptional difference in the way you look and feel - and. on your social outlook. When you feel good, you look great. And that helps you project an image of self-confidence and high personal esteem. If you have any further questions about porcelain veneers, please call us now.
