Dental Veneers Dentist in NAPLES
A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer; composite and porcelain.
Composite is directly placed in the mouth with bonding techniques. The composite used is a resin based material. Composite veneers are placed in one appointment and is minimally invasive. This treatment is generally done in people with small imperfections, and can be very quick and effective.
One of the main differences between composite and porcelain veneers is that composite is generally much cheaper than porcelain veneers.
A Porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated. A Laboratory technician fabricates the veneer out of porcelain, and then stains and glazes the porcelain for a natural looking appearance.
The material we use to fabricate porcelain veneers is called E-max. This is a very durable material and allows for maximum aesthetics.
Porcelain veneers can be done without removing much of the tooth structure underneath, and at times we can even cement the veneers without doing any drilling on the tooth.
One of the benefits of porcelain veneers are that they don't discolour with time. They maintain the bright white colour for much longer than normal teeth or composite veneers.
