What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry in which a tooth-colored porcelain is placed on the facial surfaces of the teeth. Porcelain and composite veneers are made by dental technicians in the dental laboratory. However, composite veneers can also be made directly by your dentist in your mouth.
Porcelain Tooth Coating with Zirconium Infrastructure
It is the preferred type of tooth coating for aesthetically satisfying results. Reflecting light like a natural tooth and discoloration of the gum edge and the absence of gingival withdrawal are some of its biggest advantages. It is also a kind of tooth covering which does not cause any problems such as caries in the tooth under the coating due to its perfect harmony with the cut tooth.
Zirconium veneers produced by computer-aided systems as the application technique can be used successfully for both single tooth coatings and tooth bridges in case of missing one or more teeth.
Since the material color is the same as the tooth color in the mouth, it is not necessary to use the opaque layer of color covering as in metal coatings. Therefore, they can be applied with less scraping than the tooth to be coated. The problem of cold and hot sensitivity is minimal for this reason and also because the thermal conductivity coefficient of the material is lower than the metal.
Zirconium veneers are bonded to the teeth with special fixing cement after the rehearsal. Zirconium substructure ceramic coatings, which are applied on implant applications, are the most preferred dental bridges and coatings due to their biological compatibility.
Full Ceramic Veneers
Porcelain veneers with metal substructure are insufficient to mimic the natural tooth especially when the front single tooth coating is required.
Different images are obtained under different light sources. No matter how skilled, experienced and knowledgeable the dental technician is, the desired results cannot be obtained with porcelain containing metal in the front single tooth coatings.
Because of this need, full ceramic empress tooth coatings have emerged with the idea of using porcelain without metal in their single tooth coatings. Even when the ideal tooth is cut, the patient should use full ceramic empress dental coverings consciously and carefully.
This application, which has the risk of breaking when it gets excessive force, is preferred when aesthetic teeth are needed.
We can also say half-tooth coating applied to the front surface of the tooth. They are also known as fang teeth or false nails. It is a sensitive coating method. Today, it is a frequently used method among aesthetic dentistry applications. Due to the difficulty in application and material prices, the price is higher than zirconium dental coatings.
Laminate veneers turn the color and shape of the teeth into the desired beautiful appearance.
