Dental and Porcelain Veneers: One and the Same?
The placement of Dental Veneers is one of the most popular Cosmetic Dentistry procedures carried out today. Dental Veneers are sometimes referred to as Porcelain Veneers. The term Porcelain Veneers refers to a specific type whereas the term Dental Veneers is often used to describe both Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers – Therefore, things can become a little unclear. Nevertheless, there are distinct differences between Porcelain and Resin Veneers.
All Dental Veneers are laminates: They are thin layers which are bonded to the surface of the tooth to enhance them aesthetically. Resin Veneers are thinner than Porcelain Veneers which means less of the natural tooth needs to be removed for placement: Therefore Resin Composite Veneers are less invasive. However, Porcelain Veneers tend to look more natural due to their light reflective qualities – They also resist staining better.
Dental Veneers are used within Cosmetic Dentistry to routinely correct worn, chipped and broken teeth: Uneven, irregularly shaped and gapped teeth: As well as discoloured teeth. Dental Veneers can change the colour, shape, size and/or length of your teeth to create the Perfect Smile. Although each has their differences Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers do achieve the same end. It is best to discuss which is the most appropriate for your needs with a professional Cosmetic Dentist.
The Alternatives Tooth Erosion
Composite Bonding is another Cosmetic Dentistry procedure which can also transform a smile – A less expensive alternative to Dental Veneers. A resin and glass composite is placed onto the surface of the tooth and hardened off with a special light. It’s purpose is also to improve the colour, shape and size of the tooth. However, while economic in the short term, Composite Bonding is relatively short lived. Nevertheless, Composite Bonding has improved over recent years and the treatment can often be carried out in a single visit.
Whichever route you are considering it is important to find a professional Cosmetic Dentist sufficiently experienced and trained to carry out your treatment of choice – And carry it out to a high standard. In the UK any General Dentist can be described as a Cosmetic Dentist. And many do offer a range of Cosmetic treatments.
