Veneers are mainly of two types: Porcelain Veneers and Resin Veneers. Porcelain is a tooth coloured material, which can resist stains on the teeth better than the Resin Veneers. Besides, the light reflecting property of the porcelain Veneers is almost similar to that of the natural teeth. Resin Veneers are thinner in comparison to the Porcelain Veneers and require less removal of the tooth surface before placement. Porcelain Veneers are considered better as they fit over the existing tooth like a sheath and make even the ugliest teeth look like that of a movie star with his/ her endearing smile and reflect light with a natural healthy glow.
When are veneers required?
- To cover the stained and discoloured teeth.
- History of injury may lead to blackish/ grey tooth.
- To cover chipped or broken teeth
- To fill unsightly gap between front teeth.
- To correct crooked teeth.
- To cover worn out teeth.
- To smoothen rough or jagged edges on front teeth
- To cover teeth those are maligned or uneven or have irregular shape.
Advantages of Veneers
- Ideal choice for improving the smile and appearance of front teeth.
- Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea or even cigarette smoking.
- Ultra-thin Porcelain Veneers or Composite Veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth.
- Requires less reduction of healthy tooth structure than in the case of full crowns.
