How are dental veneers made?

The technique for laying a dental jacket depends above all on the material chosen.

Laying porcelain veneers usually requires at least two appointments, during which the dentist proceeds through different steps depending on the technique chosen dandruff veneer, E-max or Feldspathic

Preparation of the teeth: a thin layer of enamel corresponding to the thickness of the veneer is sometimes removed from the tooth. This operation is sometimes performed under local anesthesia.

Placement of temporary veneers: in order to protect the teeth until the end of the treatment procedure, the dentist places temporary veneers while waiting for the final veneers made by the dental technician.

Placement of permanent veneers: the temporary veneers are removed and the dentist applies a solution to roughen the surface of the teeth. The veneers are then bonded using an appropriate glue.

For composite resin veneers , the operation requires only one session in the dental office, depending on the number of teeth involved, thanks to a direct installation method. The veneers are shaped directly on the incisors or canines, chairside. Concretely, the cosmetic dentist first prepares the enamel then proceeds to the superposition of several layers of composite resin, which will constitute the different types of dental veneers (example: lumineers veneers ). They are gradually hardened in the light. If necessary, these facets will still have to be polished and/or cut for a more natural result.

The placement of dental veneers is very often painless and without anesthesia

Having dental veneers has many advantages:

Aesthetics: the veneers offer a more natural appearance while providing whiteness and transparency, they have been constantly improved since their creation in 1928 . Especially when the veneers are made to measure, they are more translucent.

The materials used are biocompatible.

The color of the teeth does not change compared to dental whitening. Whitening your teeth does not change the shape and position of the teeth.

A perfect alternative to more complex cosmetic dentistry treatments: such as orthodontics (fitting braces), fitting a dental crown , fitting a dental implant or dental bridge. It is a painless technique.

It is not necessary to devitalize as for teeth with pivots, or ceramic crown when dental veneers are placed.

Speed: Changes are measurable immediately. Only a few days after the end of the treatment, the gums recover normally and you find a pretty, radiant smile of health.

A non-invasive solution, without general anesthesia, sometimes without local anesthesia, without pain: as there is no need for devitalization. The tooth structure is preserved.

Ease of maintenance: nothing changes after laying the veneers. You continue to practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth normally, flossing, visiting your dentist regularly for scaling and prophylactic brushing.

Resistance: to shocks, food stains, cavities, bruxism, cold and heat.

In addition, there are very few contraindications , which makes many patients eligible for dental veneers. Generally, a patient is advised against using this technique when:

One or more teeth suffer(s) from a cavity: it will first be necessary to carry out a clinical and radiographic assessment and to carry out dental care before proceeding with the bonding of the veneers. In general, if the teeth or gums are affected by an infection (periodontal disease, abscess, inflammation, periodontitis, etc.), it will be necessary to treat before placing the veneers.
