What Are Dental Veneers? Cost, Procedure

Dental veneers are a dental solution that will help you achieve the aesthetic look you want. Types of dental veneers are a popular solution for people with broken teeth, gaps or misshapen teeth. 

How is a Veneer Different from Implants or Crowns?

Implants, veneers and crowns are dental restoration methods that improve the aesthetic appearance and function of your teeth. These dental restoration methods differ from each other in terms of their application methods.

The main difference between crown and veneer is that a veneer covers only the front of your tooth while a crown covers the entire tooth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone and covered with a realistic looking crown. Dental veneers can change the appearance of existing teeth, while implants replace teeth that are missing or cannot be saved.

When Would My Dentist Recommend Veneers?

When you tell your dentist that you want to have a veneer, some criteria are checked in order for the dental operation to be successful. The following conditions should be met before the dental veneer is applied:

  • Before having the veneer, your teeth and gums should be healthy. If you have gum problems or sensitivity problems, you should tell your dentist. Your dentist can treat your tooth and gum ailments before dental veneers are placed.
  • If you are clenching your teeth or have a teeth grinding problem, your dentist may create a different treatment map, as this may cause the veneers to break.
  • Discuss all your expectations and treatment options with your dentist in dental care and treatment processes. Your dentist will make the most appropriate recommendations according to your expectations and your oral and dental health.

Types of Veneers

If you want to improve your smile and do not have problems such as tooth loss, dental veneers are one of the best solutions for you. Dental veneers are applied to correct the following dental problems:

  • Stained teeth (can’t be whitened by bleaching)
  • Worn teeth
  • Distorted teeth (split teeth, etc.)

Dental veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin materials. Each type of veneer has different advantages. Your dentist will assist you in choosing the appropriate veneer. Dental veneer costs are determined by the materials used and the procedures applied. The prominent features of the different types of dental veneers are as follows:

  • Porcelain veneers are strong and long-lasting dental veneers. They also have a natural-looking tooth surface and do not stain easily.
  • Composite veneers cost less than porcelain veneers.During the procedure, less enamel is usually required to be removed than porcelain veneers. Although composite veneers are not as strong and wear-resistant as porcelain veneers, problems can be treated quickly.
  • Zirconium veneers are made of zirconia material, which is 10 times stronger than natural tooth enamel. For this reason, when attention is paid to oral and dental care, their permanence is between 10 – 30 years. In addition, zirconium is the most biocompatible dental material around after gold.
