Tooth veneers are an ideal solution if the patient wishes to:
- Change the colour of teeth (veneers are glued to the front part of the dentition, they allow hiding discolorations)
- Adjust the shape of teeth
- Extend the length of the tooth slightly
- Perform a small correction of a tooth that has been e.g. rotated or crowded
- Reconstruct missing tooth fragments, lost in the form of e.g. crushing or other injuries.
The material used for veneers allows to create a completely renewed smile, and the completed elements are almost indistinguishable from natural dentition. Thanks to this, the Patient will avoid uncomfortable questions about the aesthetics of teeth and will not even notice veneers’ presence.
When veneers are recommended
Veneers are a great solution in case of unsightly furrows or minor damage to the teeth. We recommend using them when the patient is struggling with teeth that are:
- Broken or shattered
- Slightly discoloured
However, it should be remembered that veneers, in some cases, cannot replace specialist orthodontic treatment. We advise against veneers for patients who have been diagnosed with gum or periodontal disease, severe discoloration of teeth, or dentition that has been endodontically treated. The same will be true for Patients with bruxism symptoms or deep bite. In such cases, the veneers will not be permanent, and the risk of crushing and, in extreme cases, falling off completely will increase significantly. In the case of severely damaged teeth, the doctor will also advise against their use.
Veneers can be distinguished:
It is the most expensive of the available possibilities, but the effect of their use is impossible to distinguish from the elements of natural dentition. Very often zirconium oxide is used in their base, which gives a very aesthetic result in the form of a lack of a clear line of transition from tooth to veneer.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most expensive options, but thanks to the use of the porcelain material, the results are extremely satisfactory for the Patient. They are characterized by very good durability (their resistance to damage and destruction reaches even 15 years) and an excellent price to quality ratio. All thanks to the use of porcelain, which is a translucent material, with features very similar to those of a natural tooth. Its translucency, The way the light is reflected, and the look is an extremely good choice. What is more, they are extremely flexible and can be attached to any tooth – regardless of the structure and type of the tooth, and in addition, they are resistant to caries and strong discoloration. This is why our patients are so eager to choose porcelain veneers, even on the most visible teeth.
Composite veneers can be used as both permanent and temporary fillings. They are also relatively inexpensive and allow for simple adjustment of their shape to the tooth’s structure. Unfortunately, it has to be taken into account that their uniform colour may look a little unnatural, and with time, it may lose its colour and turn yellow.
This is undoubtedly the cheapest option. It is often used as a temporary solution, especially when waiting for porcelain veneers to be made. Their durability does not exceed two years. They are much thicker and give much less aesthetic effects.
For the needs of our patients we would also like to offer veneers without sanding, made of porcelain. They are made in the V.I.S. system, making the whole procedure of placing them on teeth much simpler and non-invasive. It does not require any interference with the tooth enamel. Each veneer without grinding is made to order and adjusted to the Patient’s needs.
