What are the types of veneers?

Dental veneers can either be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. However, porcelain veneers are preferable because of their stain resistance and their ability to reflect light like your natural teeth. Before veneer placement, you will discuss with your dentist the best veneer material.   

What are the dental issues that veneers fix?

Dental veneers are popular cosmetic options because of their various benefits. They are permanent, stain-resistant, and no need for special care. Additionally, they feel and look natural; you will not have evidence that dental treatment has been done. 

Veneers routinely fix;

  •         Discolored teeth. You are most likely to have tooth discoloration because of various reasons like root canal treatment, stains from drug use, excessive fluoride use or large resin fillings.
  •         Worn-down teeth.
  •         Broken or chipped teeth.
  •         Uneven, misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth.
  •         Gapped teeth.

How are you prepared for a dental veneer?

Veneers usually take two appointments for placement. Your dentist will remove enamel bits on each tooth scheduled for a treatment to ensure a perfect fit. The enamel removed is of equal thickness to the veneer. After that, images and molds of your mouth are taken and sent to a lab to create veneers. Your dentist will check out the veneers’ sizes, color, and fit to make sure your resulting smile is perfect on your second appointment. 

After he has ensured that the veneers will perfectly fit, the doctor will use dental cement and bond the veneers to the teeth permanently.

 What are non-prep veneers?

Non-prep veneers are like ordinary dental veneers but ideal for individuals who do not want their enamel removed. Lumineers and Emprethin are the most common non-prep veneers Dr. Rich Higgs and his dental experts’ team use on their patients at Aquila Dental. Made from extremely durable and advanced porcelain that is very thin, non-prep veneers can be used in place of traditional veneers, though with exceptions. Dental experts recommend you book an appointment with your dentist before going for a non-prep veneer to ascertain if it is the right one for you.
