It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color. A number of patients at Apex Dental Center in Bangkok and Phuket are requesting to use Porcelain Veneers to improve their teeth appearance.

The Benefits of Veneers
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. This is one of the reasons why dental crown is quite a popular procedure in Bangkok and Phuket.
With veneers-as opposed to crowns your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.
Potential Veneer Downside
Because a portion of the original tooth enamel is reduced, a veneer is not considered a reversible treatment. Although adjustment and even new veneers can be made, you can never reliable return to the original condition of the tooth.
After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of the thin layer of enamel. This typical disappears within a few days in a healthy mouth properly treated with porcelain veneers-and where destructive forces are minimized or eliminated you should be able to use porcelain veneers like his or her own teeth. Although they are very strong, veneers are also brittle. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with non-veneered tooth: don’t bit your fingernails, chew ice, or open bear bottle with your veneers! Apex Dental Center in Bangkok and Phuket advise that patients should give a special care of their teeth after have the porcelain veneers for a few days.
Maintenance of Porcelain Veneer.
Maintaining porcelain veneers is actually quite simple: Treat them as you would with your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will typically be suggested.
One week after your veneers are placed, you will be required to return to the office for follow-up visit and evaluation so that dentist can see how your mouth is reacting to the veneers. This is a normal practice in Bangkok and Phuket dentists. Even if you feel the veneers are a success, this appointment is vital to your future oral health.
If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, your dentist may fit you with a nighttime bite guard so you do not damage your veneers.
There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite veneer and porcelain veneer.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. 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 resist stains better and stronger than resin composite and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin composite veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. Further information regarding veneers’ materials can be found at Apex Dental Center in Bangkok and Phuket branch.
How to give a whole new LOOK for your smile?
In many cases, porcelain veneers can provide reasonable compromise when you want to avoid orthodontic crooked and crowned teeth laminated with porcelain veneers will usually give the result of polished, natural-looking smile.
Discolored and worn front teeth are two of the telltale signs of aging. If teeth are otherwise in relatively good health, porcelain veneer can be excellent treatment for providing a younger look. Your bite may be the decide factor if veneers are to be your solution.
In order to have porcelain veneers placed, patients should:
Have good periodontal and overall oral health
Be committed to proper oral care and hygiene
Have specific cosmetic goals, which they can articulate to their dentists at their initial consultations, as well as realistic expectations
Have a sufficient amount of healthy enamel, as dentists usually remove a thin layer of enamel before placing veneers
To decide whether veneers may be the right choice.
As stated above, patients must have healthy teeth and gums to qualify for dental veneers. Patients with conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and root canal infection typically do not qualify for veneers. However, after a dentist successfully treats these issues, patients are usually cleared for cosmetic enhancement. Those who are considering porcelain veneers should remember that the procedure is typically a permanent one. Because the dentist usually removes a layer of enamel before attaching the porcelain, patients will eventually need to replace their veneers or choose an alternative restoration to take their place. Therefore, no one should receive veneers unless they are certain about their decision. Some patients who habitually grind their teeth and clinch their jaw may be disqualified from receiving veneers.
