Introduction to the world of dental veneers
Technological progress does not only concern the evolutionary part of the electrical and electronic components, but also the way in which we can substantially increase the self-confidence rate. The perfect, attractive smile has slowly but surely become a must-have accessory. Progress in color materials or adhesive techniques has led to an opportunity. To be able to wear dental veneers. This is due to Charles L. Pincus, a famous dentist in Hollywood who is responsible for inventing the first porcelain dental veneers.
In this article we will discuss all the important details about dental veneers, their types and what material we should choose when deciding to wear dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
The dental facets are very correctly characterized as unidentified prosthetic constructions. This means that each tooth will have its own facet. Usually, they are strongly represented by a sheet of zirconium oxide or ceramic. The dental facets are made only in specialized dental technique laboratories, and their application is made by cementing the visible surface of the teeth.
Types of dental veneers:
The facets are classified in a very simple way into two categories. Prep and no prep. The PREP facets take their name from the procedure necessary to prepare the teeth in advance. This involves a grinding of 0.3 mm and up to 0.8 mm of the vestibular enamel. Usually, PREP veneers are indicated when you want a change in the appearance of your teeth or when your teeth are larger, and applying NO PREP veneers would increase their volume even more.
The NO PREP facets, in a very suggestive way, do not require a prior preparation of the teeth, and are usually used for small teeth that have interdental spaces. The main advantage of these facets is that the dental tissue is very well preserved.
An example of highly effective dental veneers that do not require preparation are those from Lumineers. The main advantage of these facets is the technology by which they were designed, they are very similar to the contact lenses. Moreover, they will not cause pain on application, the color is permanent, the dental sensitivity will be removed because the enamel processing is not done, and you can always return to the appearance of your natural teeth.
Zirconium dental veneers
The facets of Zirconium Oxide or Full-Zirconium are extremely durable. They are manufactured or made only by CAD / CAM technology, which involves computerized milling, which is also the most recommended technique for the hardness it offers to Zirconium facets. Zirconium dental veneers do not have the same transparency characteristics as the teeth, but the color effect is more opaque which will give your teeth a sharper white.
E-Max ceramic dental veneers
E-max ceramic is known for the naturalness it offers to teeth after application. E-max ceramic veneers are among the most aesthetic and natural types of dental veneers, with very good fracture resistance, where both physical and chemical adhesion techniques can be used. The most important thing to note is that both PREP and NO PREP can be used, depending on your needs.
The classic porcelain veneers are also among the top options you have when you want to resort to a facet treatment. They also play a role in dressing your teeth by acting like shirts used to create a new surface for your teeth. Porcelain veneers are processed by a modeling method so that they can give a natural look to your teeth. If you choose to opt for a porcelain veneer treatment, we recommend that you choose the cabinet where you will buy your facet set, because it is a modeling technique, they can differ greatly from one cabinet to another.
Feldspar ceramic facets
The feldspar ceramic facets are most often made on metal foil or refractory. Why should you choose feldspar ceramic and not pressed ceramic? The feldspar ceramic facets can be more easily processed according to your needs. They can be processed in thicknesses smaller than the pressed ones and more colors can be added on the same side. If we wanted to polish a pressed ceramic veneer, the color would be lost.
Durability of dental veneers
When you opt for a faceted tooth treatment, their durability depends a lot on your lifestyle. They will be able to operate at maximum "capacity" for many years after application. Sustainability is affected when certain directions of the doctor are not respected. One of the most important
