Why Would You Require Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells we bond to your tooth surfaces to cover tooth flaws and imperfections. We may recommend veneers for the following purposes:
- To improve the color, size, shape, and appearance of teeth
- To close gaps or uneven spacing between teeth
- To correct slightly crooked or misaligned teeth
- To repair damaged, chipped, or broken teeth
- To restore teeth worn from grinding and clenching, a condition known as bruxism
Lithium Disilicate Porcelain Veneers - An Overview
Lithium disilicate or E-max veneers are a popular option that offers multiple advantages. The biocompatible material provides unmatched strength, durability, and aesthetics. Lithium disilicate is more translucent than any other type of veneer material. It mimics the properties of natural tooth enamel and maintains a consistent color, even when the lighting changes. The strength of the porcelain material makes it perfect for restoring multiple teeth, especially when it comes to lengthening them.
Our minimal to no prep lithium disilicate porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth, enhancing their appearance. Unlike traditional porcelain veneers, these restorations usually do not require a significant reduction in tooth structure. Some patients may not require any preparation, while some will require minimal removal of tooth structure to accommodate the veneers.
Bonded Veneers - An Overview
Bonded veneers are constructed of a composite resin material. They are directly bonded to the front of the teeth, making them a conservative cosmetic dentistry option. They offer an immediate solution for patients who do not want to commit to porcelain veneers for repairing small gaps between teeth, minor staining, small chips, minor misalignment, or slight defects in the tooth structure.
Composite veneers are also made to match your natural tooth color and shade. A thin layer of aesthetic composite resin material is applied to your tooth structure, then skillfully and artistically shaped and polished to resemble your natural teeth. The procedure requires minimal to no preparation of tooth structure.
