About Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin shells, either made of porcelain or composite resin materials, that are applied to the front surface of visible teeth. Commonly known as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, they are designed to give teeth a beautifully shaped appearance. Veneers have become the top choice for enhancing teeth by improving their color, size, and overall appearance.
In our clinic in Iran, we use high-quality veneers at a reasonable cost, providing our patients with excellent solutions to enhance their smiles.
Reasons for Using Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are an ideal option for various dental issues, such as:
- Stained or discolored teeth due to root canal treatment.
- Chipped or worn down teeth.
- Crooked or misshapen front teeth.
- Uneven spaces or large gaps between teeth.
Procedure to Get Dental Veneers
The process of getting dental veneers typically involves two, and sometimes three, visits to the dentist.
During the first visit, your dentist will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are suitable for you. X-rays may be taken to assess their health, and impressions of your teeth may be obtained to prepare the veneers at a dental lab (this step may be done during the second visit if it is a three-visit treatment).
In the second visit, after receiving your veneers (which usually takes 2 to 4 weeks to prepare), the dentist will prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. This involves trimming the tooth's surface by almost the same thickness as the veneer to create a rougher surface for better bonding. Then, the veneer is bonded to the tooth using a special cement, and the dentist ensures its color, shape, and fit. A special light is used to quickly dry the cement, and any excess cement is removed, with the bite verified.
After Getting Veneers
After the application of dental veneers, certain precautions should be taken, including:
- Avoid biting on hard objects like pens or fingernails to prevent chipping or breaking of the veneers.
- Refrain from using your teeth to open packages.
- Avoid chewing hard foods with your front teeth and use your back teeth instead.
- If you grind or clench your teeth at night, use a night guard to protect the veneers.
- If you engage in sports activities, wearing a mouth guard is recommended.
Porcelain Veneers or Composite Resin?
Porcelain veneers require more enamel removal but offer increased durability, longevity, and resistance to stains. On the other hand, composite resin veneers are less expensive, require less preparation, and are easier to fix if chipped. To choose the best material for your teeth, it's essential to discuss your expectations with your dentist, who will recommend the most suitable option for you.
