If a person has badly stained teeth that cannot be improved by teeth whitening, gaps between the teeth that they want covered up, or damaged teeth that are badly worn or chipped and broken, they may seek veneers as a form of cosmetic dentistry to give them a uniform looking smile. Veneers are thin laminates or shells of tooth coloured material which are fixed onto the front surface of the tooth to improve their aesthetic appearance.
Veneers can be made of porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material and the most popular used by many surgeons around the world is porcelain, as they are stronger and more durable, as well as offering a more natural appearance.

What are dental veneers?
Porcelain veneers are the most effective dental treatments to achieve perfect smile. Dental veneers are very thin shell of porcelains which are tooth coloured. They cover the front surface of the teeth and recreate natural look.
Porcelain veneers are used to treat crooked, damaged, uneven, stained or worn out teeth. They can be made of porcelain or composite material. Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers; however, they are more prone to staining and do not last as long as porcelain ones. Composite veneers last one or two years whereas porcelain veneers last five to fifteen years.
How are dental veneers performed?
The first part of any dental procedure is the initial consultation and examination, so that the dentist can get a feel for what patient wants and understands his/her needs and concerns. Before veneers are designed, your dentist needs to reshape and prepare the front surfaces of your teeth so that they can accommodate the veneers. The first stage is to numb the teeth and gums with a local anaesthetic so that you do not feel anything during the procedure.
Using a special dental drill tool, dentist shaves off a tiny part of the front surface of teeth. It is important that the amount removed from the front surface of the tooth by the dentist is equal to the thickness of the veneer that will be placed on the tooth. Next, an impression or mould of teeth is taken. Special dental material is placed into patient’s mouth on a tray and pushed into patient’s teeth so that it takes an imprint of his/her teeth. This mould of teeth is then sent to a dental laboratory. The laboratory uses the impression to cast an accurate model of teeth, which is used as a guide to fabricate new veneers. This process is completed within a few days. While patient is waiting for veneers to be fabricated, the dentist may fit patient with some temporary veneers to protect prepared teeth.
On second appointment, the dentist fits new veneers to patient’s teeth. First, the dentist may just sit the veneers over teeth to see how they look with patient’s smile, as he/she may need to trim or adjust the veneer. Next, teeth are completely cleaned and the front surfaces are roughened with a special acid gel so that good surface is provided for the dental cement to stick to. Afterwards, the veneers are cemented into place, and a special light is used to activate the dental cement so that it permanently bonds the veneer to the front surface of the tooth. Any excess cement is trimmed away and polished to leave a beautiful and natural-looking restoration.
Results of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers will typically last between five and ten years, while composite veneers last a year or two at most. The bottom line is that veneers will eventually need to be replaced. Although veneers are strongly cemented into place, there have been some cases where they get loose and fall off. In such situations, it is important that patients keep hold of their veneer and contact their dentist immediately. To make veneers last longer, patients should follow a good oral hygiene program and visit dentist for check-ups on a regular basis.
Limitations of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers are great alternatives of aesthetic procedure for anterior areas to recover the overall look of the smile. Nevertheless, veneers are not the best alternative in certain cases: when very limited amount of enamel exists, severe worn teeth tissue, small clinical crown and severe grinding habits.
Risks of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers make it possible to correct visible flaws, such as broken, cracked, chipped or discoloured teeth. Porcelain veneers are natural-looking, durable, and are long-lasting treatments to cosmetic dental imperfections. It is very important for patients to understand that veneers are irremovable. As the teeth are getting ready for the placement of porcelain veneers, some enamel on the surface of the tooth is detached, therefore making the treatment irreversible. While the placement of veneers is an irreversible process, veneers might sooner or later need to be replaced. Veneers might get worn down over time or they might be damaged unintentionally. Reducing the tooth structure surges possibility of trauma to the tooth. Some patients might experience minor tooth sensitivity for a week or so after the veneers are placed.
Contraindications of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers might be contraindicated in patients with tooth wear as a result of bruxism, those with a very tight bite and pre-existing large restorations.
You arrive at the clinic in the morning or afternoon to meet your dentist in person. Your dentist will explain you the procedure in detail and examine the condition of your mouth. You will have an opportunity to discuss your preferences on veneer colours. If you would like to proceed, you will be asked to pay your remaining balance and sign consent forms. On your first visit, the dental treatment lasts for two to three hours. The dentist will apply local anaesthesia to the area where the procedure takes place. After all the arrangements and initial consultation are done, you may leave the clinic and stay at the hotel on your first day.
This will be the free day for you before your second appointment with the dentist. You may attend city tours and sightseeing.
You attend an appointment with your dentist. The dentist is makes a demo try-on to see whether the veneers fit or not. This procedure includes trimming and scaling as well in order to ensure patient’s oral comfort.
Fourth day is a free day for you. You may choose to attend any leisure activities including shopping and exploring the city attractions and touring around the neighbourhood.
In the final day of your medical journey, the dentist applies the porcelain veneers into patient’s mouth after scaling and arrangements are completed. Your final procedure will last two to three hours in order to make the proper fitting into your mouth. As a final touch, the dental veneers are polished in order to have an elegant and beautiful smile.
What are the benefits of dental veneers?
Porcelain veneers are good solutions for multiple cosmetic issues. They completely change the appearance of the visible area of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers can be used in following issues:
– gaps between teeth
– unevenly sized and shaped teeth
How should I take care of dental veneers?
You should take care of your veneers as if they are your natural teeth. You need to brush your veneers twice a day and floss as normal.
Are there any alternative treatments to dental veneers?
Dental crowns can be considered as an alternative treatment to dental veneers. Patients who choose veneers are the ones who want a slight change on the shape of their actual teeth. Crowns encase the entire tooth, but veneers only cover over its front surface. Crowns also create significant shape changes in teeth whereas veneers create minor changes.
Do dental veneers affect normal oral functions?
Your new porcelain veneers will not affect your normal oral routine. You can eat just as you have done it before. You do not need to worry about the strength of your veneers. They are very strong and will not break up easily.
