Veneers: The Easy and Quick Approach Towards Tooth Restoration

Veneers: The Easy and Quick Approach Towards Tooth Restoration

The Four Basic Types of Teeth Veneers

1. Porcelain Veneers 

Porcelain veneers provide teeth with an excellent aesthetic. Not only do they resemble the color of real teeth, but they also give off a brighter and whiter tone in a very natural manner. For this reason, patients who want a longer-lasting tooth whitening dental restoration often choose this option.

In addition, porcelain veneers are biocompatible. This material type is medically deemed safe. Its presence in the oral cavity will not cause gums and tissues to incur adverse effects like infections and bacterial accumulation.

Although the brightness of veneers is what makes them distinct, our dentist in Marshfield, MA can present you with various shade options. You can select one that matches your natural teeth the best.

2. Composite Veneers 

Composite veneers are mainly comprised of composite resin–the same substance used for filling dental caries. It combines inorganic and organic elements, mainly the resin (filler), the coupling agent, the accelerator, and the photo-initiator (for light-curing).

Though not as sturdy as its porcelain counterpart, composite resin holds well when maintained with care. In addition, its appearance can be made indistinguishable from that of natural teeth.

It will take you a single visit to our dental practice in Marshfield to get composite veneers as the procedure is straightforward. If the laminate gets damaged in the future, you can always have them touched-up by our dental practitioner.

3. Temporary Veneers 

Temporary or removable veneers are exactly that. They’re veneers that can be removed and put back on whenever you want.

This snap-on dental restoration is not a permanent solution for teeth, and they are not meant to be worn for long hours within a day. Snap-on veneers are more of a quick fix for special events. If you do not have time to schedule a dental appointment to fix stained, cracked, or misshapen teeth, you can wear removable veneers.

You can clip on these instant veneers to temporarily cover up your teeth until you can drop by a dental practice for professionally made veneers.

4. Custom-Made Veneers 

Custom veneers are similar to temporary ones in that they are clip-ons and are not a permanent fix for teeth. They are, however, of a higher quality because they are tailored to fit your teeth.

Dental technicians will mold them according to your dental impressions. Once ready, the custom-made veneers can be sent out directly to you or our dental practice.

Why Veneers?

1. Realistic Tooth Appearance 

Veneers generally have a structure and hue that very closely matches that of natural teeth. It is a great innovation in dentistry. This uncomplicated procedure for tooth restoration brings about an amazing aesthetic.

For teeth surfaces that need minor repairs, veneers can give them a healthy appearance. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, veneers can seal up small cracks to avoid the accumulation of plaque or tartar in these areas.

2. No Need for Invasive Tooth-Shaping 

Dental veneers do not cause discomfort or pain when they are being applied to your teeth. The uppermost to mid-layer of the enamel may require buffing and light shaving for the veneer to fit the tooth properly. Still, this approach is much more comfortable than many people think.

3. Prompt Cosmetic Modification 

We do not mean prompt in the way tooth clip-ons can be worn and removed speedily. What we mean by this is how short veneer procedures are in comparison to other cosmetic dental options.

It generally takes 2 to 3 weeks to create the molded veneers. However, once the veneers are made, it will take no more than an hour to slightly shape the enamel surface and attach the newly made veneers to your teeth.

If you are a patient who does not like sitting in the dentist’s chair for long hours and only require minor upgrades to your smile, veneers may be a suitable option for you.
