What are porcelain veneers?
You’ve probably heard of porcelain veneers, or the term veneers for short. If you’re not quite sure what they are and what they’re for, we’ll tell you more in this article.
What is a dental veneer and what types are there?
Dental veneers are very thin, aesthetic shells that are bonded to the visible part of the teeth. They allow us to change the shape and/or colour of stained teeth, teeth that have suffered a breakage or teeth that have been worn down over the years.
There are different types of veneers: porcelain veneers are the most common, but there are conventional veneers or crowns that are also used in some dental clinics or for specific cases.
However, porcelain veneers allow a much larger part of the natural tooth to be preserved, among other reasons, because they are thinner, with a usual thickness of between 0.3 and 0.5 millimetres. This is their main advantage, as well as the fact that they are much more aesthetically pleasing.
Porcelain veneers achieve a great aesthetic change, both in the colour and shape of the tooth. The positive thing is that it is a very conservative treatment, as the teeth hardly have to be prepared and the results are instantaneous.
Porcelain veneers in Viladecans
We are Clínica Dental Baldrich, a dental clinic in Viladecans, very close to Sant Boi, Gavá and Castelldefels. One of our main characteristics is our proximity to the patient, without neglecting the professionalism and experience of two generations of dentists in Viladecans.
We have a long list of treatments to maintain and improve the oral health of our patients, as well as their aesthetics. Porcelain veneers are one of our main services.
To evaluate each case individually, the first thing we do is a photographic study of the patient. Personalisation is key, as each person is different from the others and needs differ.
In addition, we show images of previous clinical cases and, using a computer programme, we give shape and colour to what we would like to offer for the patient’s teeth. This way they can get an idea of what they might look like, before sending the porcelain veneers to the laboratory.
Once we have the veneers, we show the patient how they look in their mouth and once they approve, we proceed to bond them to the tooth.
