A good smile is one of the most important things in life that can affect your relationship with your own self-esteem as well as those around you and even in your professional life. If you are seeking a makeover for your smile, dental veneers may be the best solution you are looking for.
A dental veneer is a thin shell placed over your teeth to help improve their aesthetic. If you are concerned with either the colour of your teeth or uneven formation, veneers can offer a great solution. Veneers are made out of materials such as composite, porcelain, E.max, and laminate.
Heva Clinic is one of the most reliable clinics in Turkey, offering dental veneers with the highest-quality materials at an affordable price. Here is some information on 5 different dental veneer types to give you an idea about each option.
1- Composite veneers
Composite veneers are one of the most commonly used materials for improving the aesthetic of your teeth. These veneers are made up of a composite resin material, the same material used for tooth composite bonding. Two types of composite veneers are available: direct and indirect. There is no difference in terms of the materials used for these two types, but they differ in the way they are applied. For direct composite veneers, the composite resin is directly applied to your teeth while for indirect composite veneers the composite resin is customised to your teeth in a separate process and then applied to your teeth. You will be provided with a set of temporary veneers until the new resin veneers are ready.
Your dentist will prepare your teeth for the application of the new veneers by applying a layer of adhesive. Indirect composite veneers are more durable than direct composite veneers. Thus, this type of composite veneers tend to cost more.
2- Porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are another popular option among people who are looking to get an aesthetic improvement. Similar to indirect composite veneers, porcelain veneers are custom made for your teeth. Your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and prepare your porcelain veneers based on this mold. The preparation of porcelain veneers can take up to two weeks. In the meantime, you will be provided with a set of temporary veneers. Porcelain is a great material to imitate your teeth while showing high durability. Also, porcelain veneers do not stain easily; this is why porcelain veneers are one of the most preferred options.
3- Emax veneers
Emax veneer is a kind of porcelain veneer. This material is made up of lithium disilicate glass-ceramic, which is lighter and allows for thinner veneers. What’s more, Emax veneers offer better durability than porcelain veneers. The best selling point of Emax veneers is their semi-transparent property. Compared to opaque traditional porcelain veneers, Emax veneers offer a more natural look closer to the natural teeth. The application process for Emax veneers is similar to porcelain veneers, where a temporary set of veneers are provided during the preparation process.
4- Laminate veneers
Laminate veneers, which are also referred to as dental laminates, are thin shells made up of tooth-coloured materials. Similar to dental veneers, porcelain or composite materials can be used for laminate veneers. Dental laminates are much thinner and less invasive than dental veneers and they can be placed on top of the teeth without changing the shape or removing much of the enamel.
5- Prepless veneers
Prepless veneer is a novel type of veneer application that requires minimal or no shaving or drilling. These veneers are almost as thin as contact lenses which makes the application process easier and quicker. Still, they provide the durability of porcelain veneers. This type of veneer is the most gentle and painless way to get an aesthetic look for your teeth. It is even possible to remove the veneers and continue to use your natural teeth after the application since your teeth are left untouched. The enamel and natural look of your teeth are preserved and protected underneath the prepless veneers.
