WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS?
Dental veneers are thin layers of tooth-colored materials that are custom-made to provide the teeth with a more aesthetically-appealing appearance, while at the same time, providing strength. Veneers are bonded to the tooth front so that they drastically change their overall appearance.
As such, veneers are a common solution for people who wish to improve their smile and the appearance of their teeth. At Amaya Dental, our team of skilled and experienced professionals provides some of the best dental veneers. We will provide you with various high-quality veneer options you can choose from to suit your current condition, what you wish to achieve as well as your budget.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VENEERS?
There are two main types of veneers, and they are differentiated based on the material they are made from. These are porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers.
These are the most common type of veneers used across the globe. They are extremely durable, usually lasting for 10 to 20 years. Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit the concerned tooth, and they add strength and resilience to the tooth in addition to covering the discoloration, stain, chip, misalignment, and so on.
A huge advantage of porcelain veneers is that they have a natural appearance and it is next to impossible to differentiate them from your real teeth. In addition, they do not stain easily which means that you’ll have whiter, brighter looking teeth for a longer time. At Amaya Dental, we strongly recommend porcelain veneers for anyone looking to improve the appearance and functionality of their compromised teeth.
Composite resin veneers
As the name suggests, these are made from resin. They are tooth-colored and are bonded to the front of the tooth. Composite resin veneers are more affordable than porcelain veneers, however, they are not as strong, durable, and resistant to wear and tear as porcelain veneers are.
The main advantage is that less tooth enamel has to be removed compared to porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Composite resin veneers are also fairly simple to fix in case of any damage, meaning you won’t need to visit the dentist’s office so frequently.
DENTAL VENEERS IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER PROCEDURES
Our Miami cosmetic dentists will often recommend dental veneers in combination with other cosmetic procedures as part of a smile makeover. Perhaps you have silver or amalgam dental fillings that you’d like replaced with natural, tooth-colored composites, or maybe you’d like to straighten teeth that are overlapping, crooked, or have gaps in them. You may even have missing teeth that should be filled in with implants, bridges, or partial dentures.
Depending on your desired image, when you receive a consultation for dental veneers, our cosmetic dentists will evaluate your facial and dental structure and discuss any other procedures that may enhance your look even further in conjunction with dental veneers.
Our goal is to help you achieve the smile you desire, and all of our recommendations are based on the most effective and economical way to accomplish this. Schedule your consultation for veneers now.
