FAQ's About Dental Veneers
An existing tooth is covered by a thin layer of porcelain shell or composite resin. After removing a small amount of enamel, veneers are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. They can be used for a number of different cosmetic concerns, including discoloured, broken, chipped, misshapen or undersized teeth. By having veneers placed on your teeth, you can get a whole new look without any major surgeries or procedures. It is designed to match the shade, structure, and shape of your natural teeth for a seamless appearance.
At Darch Dental Centre, we offer two types of veneers:
- Direct veneers:
Composite resin veneers are made of resin composite material, the same as that used in tooth-coloured fillings. They can usually be made within a day, so the dental treatment can be completed in one appointment.
- Porcelain veneers:
Porcelain veneers are made of ceramic materials. They are the most popular and durable type of veneer. Porcelain veneers are created in a laboratory from impressions of your teeth. Before fabricating it, we will show you how it looks before and after.
A composite resin veneer can be bonded in only one visit. The entire tooth is reshaped before bonding, and the composite material is glued on and shaped to match your teeth. A special light solidifies the composite and then polishes it so that it looks like a natural tooth.
It takes longer for porcelain veneer treatments because each veneer is fabricated in a dental laboratory, which typically takes one to two weeks. Your dentist will take a mould or impression of your teeth and send it to the laboratory. This will ensure the best fit. You may be fitted with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent porcelain veneers to be made. Your dentist will schedule another appointment once the porcelain veneers are ready. Dental cement will permanently bond them to your teeth, and you will not be able to remove them.
There are risks associated with every dental procedure. While there are some risks associated with dental veneers, they are not life-threatening. Some precautions can be taken to avoid them. These are some possible risks:
- Teeth Sensitivity:
In the first three weeks after having veneers placed, you may experience tooth sensitivity, which is not uncommon. If sensitivity persists for a long time, consult your dentist.
- Damaged dentine:
During the enamel removal process, the underlying dentine may be damaged. Fortunately, this rarely occurs.
- Bruxism or jaw pain:
An ill-fitting veneer can alter your bite alignment, causing bruxism or jaw pain.
- Veneer failure:
Untreated dental issues, such as enamel erosion or tooth decay, can result in veneer failure.
On average, a dental veneer has a lifespan of ten years. When properly cared for and maintained, your veneers may last longer. Here are some tips on how to make your dental veneers last as long as possible:
- To prolong the lifespan of veneers, brushing twice daily and flossing daily are essential.
- Wear a custom mouthguard while playing a contact sport to prevent chipping or breaking of your veneers. Tooth grinding can also cause your veneers to break. Wear a nighttime mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night to protect your veneers.
- Don’t bite into hard foods like hard candy, ice, or nuts.
- Don’t use your teeth to open packages or bottles.
- It is also recommended to have routine dental check-ups and cleanings every six months.
A veneer’s cost may vary depending on how many teeth you want to be covered and your preferred material. The cost of composite veneers ranges between $300 and $400 per tooth. Composite veneers, however, last shorter than porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are more expensive and can cost up to $1,000 to $1,200. Although they are more expensive than composite veneers, they deliver more durability and an improved aesthetic.
The following are some alternatives to dental veneers:
- Teeth Whitening:
Tooth whitening is a cost-effective option for stained or discoloured teeth. You can have your teeth whitened in-chair by your dentist or purchase over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. Over-the-counter remedies, however, don’t work as well as professional teeth whitening.
- Dental Bonding:
Also called tooth bonding, this is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to address minor tooth damage. During the procedure, your teeth are roughened. A tooth-coloured composite resin material is then applied to the damaged permanent tooth using a liquid bonding agent. The composite resin material is solidified using UV light. If necessary, the composite resin material may need to be further shaped after it has solidified.
