by Jeremy Thompson Web Marketer
Dental veneers a popular cosmetic dental treatment that fix discoloured or chipped teeth and improve a person’s smile. They are wafer-thin laminates or shells of tooth-coloured material which can be porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material attached to the front surface of the teeth. There is a huge variety of these dental appliances to choose from.To know which is the best type of veneers for your teeth, read this blog-post by Dentistry on Dusk to find out the different types.

Composite Veneers

These veneers fix small cosmetic issues such as a chipped or broken tooth. Composite is the material which is used for regular white fillings. The dentists making these veneers must be very careful with its crafting process to give you the best-desired result. They build up layers of this material and cure it with a special light to harden it. Then they polish it to ensure you get natural looking teeth in no time. Moreover, if you’re in a hurry to get veneers, then this type is the right choice for you as they can be done instantly while you wait at the clinic. The only drawback is that they might only last for five years or less.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers not only improve the colour, shape and look of your teeth but they also enhance your smile. They are 0.5 millimetres thick which makes them sleek. But to attach them to your teeth, a dentist needs to remove a thin layer of your tooth enamel. This may leave you with tooth sensitivity for a while once you get these veneers. But they are durable and with good maintenance, they may last for more than ten to fifteen years.

Ultra-thin Veneers or Lumineers

Lumineers are thinner than porcelain veneers and 0.2-millimetre-thick. They are made of Cerinate ceramic, an ultra-thin material that can be placed without using injections or drills. Also, they may or may not remove your tooth enamel which is why they are reversible in nature. So, you can remove or change them if required. In addition,the preparation time and benefits of these veneers are similar to porcelain ones.

Snap-on or Removable Veneers

They are made of a dental resin which is why they are strong. As the name suggests, you can remove this type and clean them regularly. Also, you can try these before buying. You can also choose the colour, shape and size like any other types of veneers but they are cheaper than the rest.

Instant Veneers

Instant veneers are pre-made and may not be customized like the other types of veneers mentioned earlier. Usually, many dentists have a few sets of these dental appliances made to match with anyone’s requirements. Though it is cheaper, it may not be the appropriate option for you as they are not custom made meaning you may not get the what you’re looking for.
