Dental veneers made from porcelain are stronger in property and typically has a longer-term use as compared to composite veneers. Composites can chip more easily and may change yellowish color over time. Therefore composite veneers will require care and maintenance.

If you are an international patient travelling to Thailand for your dental makeover, your cosmetic dentist is likely to recommend porcelain veneers that has longer-term strength.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Dental Veneers

What are the considerations in choosing between porcelain & composite veneers?

Drawbacks of Composite Veneers

  • extreme changes may be not be suited. If the teeth are more crowded or have moderate or severe wear and bite changes, there are more benefits to using porcelain veneers.
  • composite veneers have a higher chance of being chipped and stained. Whilst composite tooth laminates are strong, they are not as strong as porcelain.
  • composite will slowly darken over the years relative to porcelain material that do not stain or darken over time

Drawbacks of Porcelain Veneers

  • If the ceramist who makes the porcelain veneer is not highly skilled, the porcelain veneer will look just about as good as one done using composites. The best dental laboratory ceramists can make porcelain veneers look better, more natural and vital than any composite veneer. Make sure if you are getting porcelain veneers, your dentist is working with a good dental laboratory
  • porcelain veneers are more costly than composite veneers

 

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

No. Dental veneers does not ruin your teeth if you are treated by a qualified dental specialist and if you look after your veneers as with your natural teeth. Restorative dentists or cosmetic dentists at BIDC are selected for their skilled artistry and experience. Where tooth prep or teeth need to be shaved for veneers, your dentist will aim to remove as thin or as little surface structure as possible.

In selective cases using super-thin veneers or lumineers, there is minimal prep or no prep done to teeth. This means that some veneer types may be reversible. However for the majority of cases, some tooth preparation is normally required for teeth veneers to shape and fit properly. Veneers is therefore sometimes known as being invasive since it tampers with a thin layer of your natural teeth. With today’s technologies, using digital dentistry such as Digital Smile Design (DSD), having veneers done is increasingly less invasive with very little tooth structure being removed. BIDC has an on-site dental lab, therefore your dentists can adjust (trim, reshape or add on) your veneers quickly and easily.

Composite veneers will however need more maintenance and proper care than porcelain veneers. During your initial consult, your dentist will discuss on your possible veneers options. Porcelain veneers is normally the preferred veneer material for the long-run because it is stronger, more stain-resistant and does not chip as easily as with composites. Composite veneers are normally temporary solutions and may possibly need re-work when it turns yellowish over time. When composite veneers are replaced, the existing composite bonding will need to be removed.

If have existing veneers that should really needs replacement, the intact teeth structure that remains after veneers removal is based on your previous veneer preparation, its thickness and the skill of your prior and current veneer removal dentist. If porcelain veneers are of high quality and properly done, they normally last for a long time and will not need frequent replacement.

Consult with our top team of cosmetic dentist to determine what treatment options are available for a dental makeover. Certain cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening are non-invasive and maintains your natural teeth as it is.  

How long do veneers last?

The life span of a veneers depends on the amount of “wear and tear” your veneer is exposed to and mouth-related habits. If you follow good oral hygiene practices, porcelain veneers can last on average last between 5 and over 10 years. Porcelain veneers have good strength and are stain resistant.

For composite veneers, they can chip easily and is normally a temporary to medium-term option. Do discuss with your restorative dentist which veneer material is best suited for you before making the decision for treatment. 

How long does it take to do veneers?

At BIDC cosmetic dental clinic, standard veneer cases take as short as 5 to 7 days. For full mouth upper and lower veneers, this can take around 10 to 14 days. Dental veneers normally require at least 3 visits. A wax up or study model maybe done prior to start of treatment in checking your expected veneer treatment results. 

BIDC has a on-site dental lab for ceramic teeth works. As we are an award-winning dental center and service large numbers of international patients, our team is aware on having fast and efficient treatments. BIDC dental center is a one-stop dental center with dental specialists stationed daily to streamline and complete various treatment professionally. Our top and well-experienced dentists team aim to have your treatments done effectively in-time and one-time properly effectively. 

Do dental veneers tooth require special care?

No. Dental veneers do not require any special care and is maintained by good oral hygiene same as looking after natural teeth. Dental veneers places a new tooth surface over an underlying existing tooth. It is not protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, you will need to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day around your veneer where the gum meets the tooth.

How much do teeth veneers cost?

Composite veneers costs significantly less compared to porcelain veneers and can be half the costs of porcelain veneers. In Thailand, composite veneers prices costs about 5,000 to 7,000 baht (estimated USD$169 – 220) per tooth.

The price of porcelain veneers is typically around 10,000 to 18,000 baht (estimated USD$315 – 560) per tooth. There are various ranges of porcelain laminates even within each system. IPS Empress Esthetics veneers will costs less than IPS Empress eMax. Super-thin porcelain veneers tends to costs more than conventional porcelain veneers because your lab technician will need the equipment and skill to construct paper-thin ultra veneers.

So the order of teeth veneer costs from lowest and highest is:

  1. composite veneers
  2. hybrid veneers
  3. porcelain veneers
  4. super-thin veneers

In order to get successful and good results, it is important to choose a skilled aesthetic dentist and trusted dental lab. At BIDC dental clinics in Bangkok, our aesthetic dental lab are on-site and well skilled. Our team of cosmetic dentists are composed of the top aesthetic dental specialists in Thailand.

 

How do I care for my teeth veneers?

Porcelain veneers with IPS Empress or Lumineers require the same care as natural teeth and is relatively long-lasting.

For composite veneers, these will slowly darken and change color over the years. The only way to lighten the veneer is to have them replaced. Composites can looses its polish quicker as compared to porcelain veneers. You may therefore opt to re-polish your composite veneers during your routine dental cleaning veneers.

What is the direct veneers? What are indirect veneers?

Direct veneers are tooth laminates does not need to be prepared or made in the dental laboratory. They are based on the principle of application of a composite material directly to the prepared tooth surface in the dental clinic. This normally means that direct veneers may be completed within one visit setting.

Indirect veneers are teeth veneers that need to be produced in the dental laboratory. Indirect veneers are normally made from ceramics or porcelain. They are cemented to your tooth surface with an adhesive resin after returning form the dental laboratory.

So to summarize briefly:

  1. Direct veneers are normally composite veneers
  2. Indirect veneeers are typically porcelain veneers or super-thin veneers
