Dental Veneers - Porcelain And Bonding
Why choose Banning Dental Group?
Dental veneers, also known as dental laminates are thin wafer-like shells that are “attached” onto the visible facial surfaces of the teeth and can be useful for the correction of minute defects on the teeth corresponding to colour and size. They offer brilliant solutions to enhance the appearance of teeth that are unsatisfactory and perceived as undesirable by the patient. Designing the right veneers and preparing the teeth with attention to detail is paramount to achieve the best and most natural results. At Banning Dental Group, we have specialists, knows as prosthodontists, who can treat your teeth to perfection.
There are many stages to planning and designing your smile, which is only achievable with experts and sophisticated equipment such as the ones Banning Dental Group has invested in.
When are dental veneers recommended?
- Teeth that are discoloured, stained and cannot be whitened
- Teeth that are misaligned, or irregularly shaped
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth with uneven gaps between them
- Veneers can be made in a laboratory or designed by the dentist in a process knows as “dental bonding.”
How are dental veneers placed?
- To create a suitable dental veneer for you, the dentist begins with the preparation of your teeth by reshaping the teeth and providing adequate space for the dental veneer to seat. In some cases, the preparation is not needed at all or minimal. At Banning Dental Group, we offer no-prep veneers as well as conventional veneers.
- Following the making of the dental veneers, your teeth are etched, and the bonding agent is washed off. You can choose the colour of your new smile, and we can discuss the options with you in detail and show you samples.
- Dental veneers are then permanently cemented onto your teeth surfaces in a process called bonding.
- The dentist places the veneers on the teeth to check for flawless fit and shape.
- Once proper veneer positioning is achieved, a curing light is used to polymerise the dental veneer in place, finalising its adherence to the tooth.
Types of dental veneers
Dental veneers are of two major types depending on the dental material used to build efficient dental veneers, namely porcelain dental veneers and composite bonded veneers. Attention is required to stretch the longevity of the dental veneers. The design and material choices are essential to minimising the risk of compromising the tooth structure. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
They are custom-made dental veneers that are made to functionally and aesthetically replace natural teeth made up of porcelain or ceramics.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are:
- Strong and long-lasting
- Biocompatible with gum tissues
Composite veneers (Bonding)
They are tooth-coloured shells that are bonded to the teeth for better aesthetics made up of composite resins.
The benefits of composite veneers are:
- Less enamel needs to be trimmed than porcelain veneers
- They take fewer visits to fabricate
- Cost-effective and is cheaper than porcelain veneers
- Easily fixable and repairable in the case of damage
