Dental Veneers: New Options For Beautiful Smiles For many, a beautiful smile is just a dream. The high cost of veneers has steered a lot of people away from cosmetic dental treatment. It is now possible for patients to enjoy the esthetics of a beautiful smile for much less than the cost of lab- base Chicago (I- Newswire) June 01, 2012 - A new composite veneer system was launched. Similar to porcelain veneers , the veneer is a shell of tooth- colored material designed to cover the front surface of the tooth. This shell is bonded to the front of the tooth changing its color, shape, size, or length. Most veneers are made of porcelain in a dental lab. This requires more than one visit and makes them expensive. Unlike porcelain veneers, the new dental veneer requires no lab. There are no separate appointments for consultations, impressions, seating of temporaries, and permanent restorations. This makes it possible for a patient to have a natural- looking, long- lasting smile in one appointment- start to finish. And because lab cost is eliminated, the veneer is economically priced, unlocking the opportunity for patients to have natural- looking restorations. Patients who may have previously chosen not to have esthetic work done because of the traditionally high cost can now enjoy beautiful smiles. Each new composite veneer is laser sintered, combining a glossy, uniform surface. This makes the veneer harder than other composite veneers, resulting in greater resistance to scratching and wear. The laser technology gives the veneer a youthful luminance and an extremely natural look. The veneer still requires a dentist who is highly skilled in cosmetic dentistry. Each veneer has to be hand- customizes to a length and shape that perfectly matches the desired look. The end result is a smile that is unique for every patient. The minimally invasive technique is another big advantage of the new veneer system. Those composite veneers closely match the shape and size of patient's tooth. Therefore, little or no tooth preparation is required, keeping natural tooth structure intact. This is particularly useful for patients that have mild to moderate tooth discolorations or minor misalignments. Compared to traditional veneers and crowns that require more aggressive tooth preparation, the new veneers may require no anesthetic. With newer dental technologies cosmetic treatment options became available. Newer veneers cost much less than other esthetic options, so there's no reason not to consider having a beautiful smile. In addition, they are far less invasive than traditional treatment techniques.
