Teeth veneers

Even if nature has awarded you with snow-white and even teeth, over time they can lose their former attractiveness. There are enough reasons for this: bad habits, injuries, pregnancy, etc. It is possible and necessary to deal with congenital and acquired defects, and in the arsenal of orthopedic dentistry there are all the means for this. To correct the shape, color of the enamel, to align the teeth, use veneers on the teeth. With their help, they will become white again, perfectly even, veneers will return you a beautiful smile, worthy of the covers of fashionable glossy magazines.

Veneers are microprostheses, thin ceramic plates (0.3-0.7 mm thick), which are fixed on the frontal side of the teeth, used to correct the shape, position, and protect teeth from decay.

A well-done work, which can be safely called an artistic restoration, allows you to make your smile perfect with the help of these thinnest linings. Thanks to innovative materials, it is possible to make veneers with a texture like real teeth, and their strength characteristics are not worse than those of tooth enamel. Thanks to this, restored teeth are almost indistinguishable from natural ones.

Dental veneers: indications for installation

The installation of veneers is indicated in the following cases:

  • the presence of chips and cracks in the front teeth;
  • significant wear of the enamel;
  • minor malocclusion;
  • healthy teeth are covered with spots (the cause may be fluorosis, hypoplasia);
  • high sensitivity of the anterior teeth to thermal and other irritants;
  • enamel erosion or wedge-shaped defect;
  • darkening of the teeth due to the filling of the channels with resorcinol-formalin paste or for other reasons.

Veneers are superimposed on the frontal teeth, which makes them snow-white, eliminates the unevenness of the dentition, gaps, cracks. Due to the high light transmittance of the material, the teeth look as natural as possible. Veneers can be placed on all teeth (including molars), but most often it is done in the smile zone – 10 teeth in the upper jaw and 10 teeth in the lower jaw.

Dental veneers: types and features

The classification of veneers is based on the materials of manufacture. The highest quality microprostheses, according to most dentists, are made of ceramics. Ceramic veneers can be porcelain or zirconia. Direct composite veneers are an alternative.

Let’s consider in more detail the advantages and disadvantages of veneers made of various materials:

  • 1
    Ceramic veneers. Ceramics allows you to create veneers, the appearance of which most closely resembles the appearance of natural tooth enamel. The material has high strength characteristics and is translucent. The teeth look natural, and glass-ceramic veneers are used for installation on both the front teeth and canines. Suitable for severely damaged teeth during treatment. The disadvantages include a lengthy production process and the need to grind the enamel.
  • 2
    Composite veneers (photopolymer). These are therapeutic veneers made from restorative material. They are produced directly in the dental office during installation, so the whole process is carried out during one visit to the doctor. Veneers are usually placed on the chewing teeth. Most often they are used when it is necessary to restore one or two teeth. Installation is carried out without turning, the cost of such mini-prostheses is lower (in comparison with ceramics), and the service life is shorter.

Installing veneers: how it works

The installation of veneers is performed only on healthy teeth, so the first stage is an examination by a dentist, treatment of caries and gum disease. If there are large fillings that will be covered with veneers, it is recommended to replace the restorative material.

Preparation for installing veneers consists in removing the top layer of enamel (grinding, turning), along with which tartar and cracks are removed. The procedure is performed under anesthesia and is therefore completely painless. To prevent the development of various violations, a complete reorganization is carried out. Usually about 0.3-0.7 mm of dental tissue is removed, after which the doctor takes an impression to make veneers. Temporary onlays are usually installed on the ground teeth.

Depending on the type of veneers and the chosen technology, production takes from one to two weeks.

At the final stage, the onlays are fixed on the teeth. For this, special cement pastes with different shades are used, which allows you to choose the one that best suits the natural color of your teeth.
