Veneers

veneers-cosmetics-hollywood-smile1The best Veneers dentists in Beirut - Lebanon

Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance. . Such wear and discoloration may be natural or the result of a genetic predisposition; however, it is often increased as a result of your habits (soft drink, tea, or coffee consumption, smoking, medication use, etc.). Your teeth may become discolored either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride; or the presence of large resin fillings. Certain people may be born with abnormal spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most of your cosmetic dental issues.

This 40 year old patient's major cosmetic concern was the disharmony associated with his smile due to the presence of anterior crowns on the left incisors that did not match neither the shape nor the color of his right incisors. He was also concerned about the recession that was occurring in the anterior lower arch. After periodontal treatment Porcelain Venners were placed in order to achieve a uniform tooth coloration and shape.

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin custom-made shell crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. They are "cemented" to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain:

A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using resin cement.

Dental porcelain veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today's veneers provides a more natural look than what's been available in the past. In contrast to composite veneers, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

How long do dental veneers last?

Porcelain veneers will typically last between five and ten years. The bottom line is that your veneers will eventually need to be replaced. To make your veneers last longer, follow a good oral hygiene program and visit your dentist for check-ups on a regular basis.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?

  • They provide a natural tooth appearance.
  • Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
  • Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
  • The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
  • Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape -- veneers generally don't require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.

This 40 year old patient wanted to make changes to her smile. Her lateral incisors were missing and she had an old ceramo- metallic anterior bridge to replace them also, the biting edges of her misaligned lower teeth showed evidence of extensive wear. Porcelain veneers were placed in order to resolve her dental problems and restore the shape and color of her front teeth.

What Are the Disadvantages of Dental Veneers?

  • The process is not reversible.
  • Veneers are usually not repairable should they chip or crack.
  • Because enamel has been removed, your tooth may become more sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages.
  • The veneer's color cannot be altered once in place. If you plan on whitening your teeth, you need to do so before getting veneers.
  • Though not likely, veneers can dislodge and fall off. To minimize the chance of this occurring, do not bite your nails; chew on pencils, ice, or other hard objects; or otherwise put excessive pressure on your teeth.
  • Teeth with veneers can still experience decay, possibly necessitating full coverage of the tooth with a crown.
  • Veneers are not a good choice for individuals with unhealthy teeth (for example, those with decay or active gum disease), weakened teeth (as a result of decay, fracture, large dental fillings), or for those who have an inadequate amount of existing enamel on the tooth surface.
  • Individuals who clench and grind their teeth are poor candidates for porcelain veneers, as these activities can cause the veneers to crack or chip. Once veneers are bonded into place, they are relatively strong and durable; however, your dentist may recommend you wear a protective appliance while your sleep, especially if you are a bruxer .
  • You may also need to avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine.
