Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells attached to the front of the teeth, covering them to alter their appearance. Veneers often are used to change the appearance of natural teeth that have been chipped, broken, or discolored. This cosmetic procedure is typically permanent, unless you go with no-prep veneers. Unlike whitening or other ways to brighten and improve the look of your natural teeth, veneers require that your teeth be sanded down before application. Visit our dentist at RJ Dental and get your teeth done to your satisfaction.

While many people get a set of six to eight veneers on their front teeth, others may need only one or two, depending on the damage to the tooth. A veneer can improve the look of a smile and protect a tooth from more damage.

There are several categories of veneers to choose between when selecting the type of veneer that is right for your situation: temporary veneers, composite resin veneers, no-prep veneers, and ceramic or porcelain veneers.

Temporary veneers are used as an interim measure in between preparing the teeth for veneers and adhering to the permanent models. These models may feel a little thicker than the final veneers and less similar to tooth enamel. When your new veneers return from the lab, the thicker and rougher surface will be traded out for a more comfortable final product.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers are a good option for a slightly lower price point and typically only require one dental visit. The composite material is usually applied directly to the tooth and shaped on the spot in this dental procedure. This option may be a good choice for a patient who wants veneers to cover a misshapen tooth or hide discoloration. Though they last a little less time than porcelain veneers, they also are a more affordable alternative.

Categories of Veneers

With popular brands like Lumineers and Durathins, these veneers are bonded to the teeth without needing to file or grind the enamel in most cases, preserving your tooth structure. They usually last between five to seven years and can be removed (in some cases) with no permanent damage. While no-prep veneers require less work to install and are typically less expensive than other types of veneers, they are also likely to break.

Ceramic veneers are also another example. These thin porcelain veneers are the classic standard - not only for their stain resistance but for their durable composition. However, they do involve shaving down more of the tooth enamel to place them correctly, doing irreversible damage to the natural tooth.

Who is a good candidate for porcelain veneers? A good candidate for porcelain veneers is someone who has more severe tooth damage or staining, or someone who grinds their teeth. What are the benefits of porcelain veneers? Porcelain veneer benefits include stain resistance (from liquids like coffee or red wine), a low likelihood of chips or fractures, and improved tooth appearance. Potential downsides to this type of veneer include a higher cost, several appointments to be placed, and more work to repair than other varieties.
