What are dental veneers?
Porcelain Veneers Lumineers can only be made from patented Cerinate® porcelain. LUMINEERS ® BY CERINATE ® Dental veneers are very thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials.
Porcelain veneers do not stain as much as resin veneers. They also mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. Porcelain veneers offer a comfortable way to have a permanently whiter and aligned smile.
Why Are Dental Veneers Used?
Here are some reasons that one might be interested in getting this procedure. Teeth that are discolored, either because of root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes, or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth. Also teeth that are worn- down, chipped, broken or misaligned.
Teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped, (for example, have craters or bulges in them). A tooth with gaps in-between them, (to close the space between these teeth). There might be other reasons in addition to these for choosing veneers. The best thing to do is visit your local dentist, preferably one that specializes in cosmetic dentistry.
How Long Will Dental Veneers Last?
Today, with improved cements and bonding agents, they typically last 10-30 years. They may have to be replaced at some point in time due to cracking, leaking, chipping, discoloration, decay, shrinkage of the gum line and damage from injury or tooth grinding.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
The cost of veneers can vary depending on the experience and location of the dentist. In the US, costs range anywhere from $1000 per tooth to $2500 a tooth as of 2016. Porcelain veneers are more durable and less likely to stain than veneers made of composite.
There are no limitations as to what you can eat or drink since Porcelain Veneers (Lumineers) are placed over your original teeth using a very durable bonding process that actually makes your teeth stronger.
