5 Different Types Of Dental Veneers And Its Good Points

What Are The 5 Different Types Of Veneers You Need To Know?
By Burton Family Dental

Do you want a cosmetic procedure that will make a big difference in how your smile looks? Dental veneers can change a natural tooth’s color, shape, and look. This gives you a perfect smile. Thin layers of custom-made resin are glued to the front of a person’s teeth to make veneers. They are recommended for minor cosmetic problems like discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, and spaces between the teeth. Sometimes, people call them “Smile Makeovers.”

Most of the time, the cosmetic appliance changes the shape of the front teeth instead of the back teeth. Both inlays and Onlays can be used to fix flaws in the back molars. You can visit our dental clinic to know more about cosmetic dentistry-related treatment.

There Are Five Different Kinds Of Cosmetic Veneers:

1. Porcelain Veneers

Because they are made of a tooth-colored ceramic shell, porcelain veneers are the most commonly used dental product. These veneers not only look like real teeth but can also stand up to some of the pressure put on them when you bite down.

Because of this, porcelain veneers have gotten the reputation of being stronger and lasting longer than other veneers. Also, the porcelain veneers do not cause allergic reactions in the tissues around them because they are biocompatible.

Good Points

  • Stain-resistant
  • Having a feel like teeth
  • Able to live between 8 and 15 years
  • Fewer chances of getting hurt in some way.
  • Don’t do anything to hurt the gum tissues.

2. Composite Veneers

To make composite veneers, a substance called composite resin is used. Composite resin is made up of both organic and inorganic parts. Filler is the only material in the veneer that is not made of organic matter. Organic particles in the veneer include resin, an initiator, and a coupling agent. Even though composite veneers are made from an inorganic material, they do not hurt or irritate the teeth or tissues around them.

It is much cheaper than how much it costs to fix porcelain veneers. But the teeth need to be cleaned and shaped before composite veneers can be glued on top of them.

Good Points

  • Durable enough to last between 5 and 7 years.
  • Less expensive
  • A surface with a smooth feel
  • If it breaks, it’s not hard to fix.

3. Lumineers

Lumineers are the thinnest and most durable veneers. They can also be put on with less tooth preparation than other veneers. The ultrathin laminate material that makes up the appliance gives it the same long-term durability as porcelain veneers. Even though the lumineers aren’t thick enough, the surfaces of the veneers are smooth, and once they’re bonded to the teeth, they feel natural.

Good Points

  • Costs a lot less than getting porcelain veneers
  • Needs only a little bit of work on the teeth.
  • Because the appliance isn’t as big, lumineers can be seen.
  • Reversible

4. Palatal Veneers

Palatal veneers, also called lingual veneers, are dental restorations to cover the front teeth’ back side. They can be made of many different things, such as gold, porcelain laminates, composite materials, etc.

5. Veneers That Only Last For A Short Time

Temporary veneers, also called snap-on veneers or removable veneers, are made from a type of resin that is flexible and easy to shape. Most of the time, they are put in place as a temporary fix until the veneers used permanently can be made.

Some people use veneers that don’t last forever as mouthguards in addition to using them to cover up flaws in their teeth. Some of the most common types of temporary veneers are as follows:

  • Instant Veneers
  • Custom-made clip-on veneers

Final Words

Covering the surfaces of the teeth with veneers not only helps relieve tooth sensitivity and hides flaws on the teeth’ surfaces. You can also fix spaces between teeth with veneers. When a tooth has a lot of fissures and its enamel has worn away, it can be very painful because it exposes the sensitive tissues and layers under the enamel. The problem can be fixed with veneers, which can be used. Simply put, dental veneers are a great way to fix both the way your front teeth feel and the way they look if they become sensitive.
