Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a major component of the Hollywood smile makeover, which is currently very popular in Dubai. A dental veneer is basically a thin layer of a highly specific material either porcelain or composite resin that is placed over the surface of a tooth. It is used to improve the appearance of a tooth or to protect the tooth surface and improve the smile of a person as a whole. In this way, your teeth will look more attractive, bright and white.

So, if you are having discolored, worn out, chipped, and irregular teeth, you can opt for dental veneers in Dubai to fix all these dental problems.

Types Of Dental Veneers In Dubai

There are two types of dental veneers.

Porcelain Dental Veneers: As the name indicates, they are made up of porcelain and are much stronger when attached to the teeth. A strong dental adhesive is used to attach porcelain veneers with teeth.
Composite Dental Veneers: They are made up of composite resin and provide a high level of customization. They can be directly attached to teeth in a shorter time.

Our cosmetic dentist will discuss the types of dental veneers with you and will explain the pros or cons of each before choosing one for your treatment.

Differences Between Dental Veneers

There are major differences between the two types of dental veneers Dubai.

  • Composite veneers can be attached directly into the patient’s mouth in one session. Whereas, porcelain veneers have to be made specifically for a particular patient, at a dental laboratory, which can take a bit of time.
  • Another difference between these two veneers is the fact that composite veneers are way thinner and the dentist will have to remove a bit of your tooth surface before placing the new superficial surface. On the other hand, porcelain veneers do not require the scraping of your tooth enamel.
  • Porcelain veneers have a better chance of resisting stains, while resin veneers do not resist stains that well.
  • Porcelain veneers are closer-looking to your normal teeth than resin veneers because the porcelain material has more of the light-reflecting qualities.

How Does Dental Veneer Work?

After deciding the most suitable type of dental veneer, you are ready for the smile-changing journey.

As the patient, you have to participate actively in treatment schedules. This includes explaining to your cosmetic dentist, the results you want to achieve which should be realistic. A good dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure that dental veneers are absolutely necessary. After that, he will take you through the entire procedure and will discuss what is involved in detail.

After setting up a schedule, which will most probably be two sessions in a period of four to five working days, the cosmetic dentist will take the impressions of your teeth on the first day. On the second visit, he will do the cementation of the veneers after checking if the veneers fit your teeth or not.

If the veneers fit your teeth, it is important to pay great attention to the color as well after they have been placed. This is because the color can still be adjusted but after cementing, it cannot be altered.

Expected Results

After undergoing the procedure, it can take at least a couple of weeks to get used to your newly shaped teeth. It is important to do a follow-up with your dentist if you feel anything is wrong or you are uncomfortable. Other than that, you will have a bright smile which will help you interact with other people with more confidence. Your new pearly whites will not only increase your self-esteem but will have some sort of oral enlightenment effect as well. 

Maintenance Of Dental Veneers

You can maintain your new teeth by visiting your dentist every 6 months and regularly flossing your teeth for good oral hygiene. To keep the dental veneers intact especially when they are still new, avoid eating tough food or chewing on tough objects.

Dental Veneers in Dubai can last for an extended period of time, as long as you look after your teeth properly. 10 years down the line, your veneers can look as good as new, but it all depends on how you take care of your oral health.

Are Veneers Safe?

Dental veneers Dubai are very safe. This is because the procedure is a non-invasive treatment. It all comes down to how good your dentist is and how good your oral hygiene is.
