What are Veneers and What are They Made of?
Veneers are like false fingernails that fit over the front and the edge of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are designed to enhance the size, shape, and color of the teeth. Further, porcelain veneers are one of the most commonly used cosmetic dentistry materials.
Veneers are made of two materials – porcelain and composite resin. Porcelain veneers are designed to fit over the front of the teeth and slightly over the edge. Porcelain is a glasslike substance often called ceramic, and porcelain veneers are the most lifelike, the most durable, and the most attractive form of veneer. These generally have to be made in a dental laboratory by a master ceramic technician.
The other method is to use a composite resin. These veneers can also be made in a laboratory, but they can often be made chairside by your dentist. Your dentist will use his/her artistry to build the veneer directly onto your teeth. Be sure to speak with one of our experienced dentists about composite resin and porcelain veneers in Encino.
Will Veneers Look Natural?
If veneers are made with a very skilled pair of hands, such as those created in our laboratory, veneers can be very natural looking. It is the skill of the craftsman making the veneers that is the most important factor in determining how natural the veneer will look. The second most important factor is the desire of the patient!
Some patients want very natural and aesthetic results, which is an enhancement of their teeth but not to make them look fake. This is what we recommend for most of our patients, as these types of veneers tend to have a much higher satisfaction rate. Some patients want the Hollywood smile or the perfect set of pearly white teeth. The problem with these is that they look more cosmetic and less natural. It all comes down to the skill of the craftsman making the veneer and how the patient wants them their veneers to look.
Are Veneers and Caps the Same Thing?
Veneers and caps are not the same. The traditional term “cap” is usually referring to a crown. A crown, in the dental profession, is something that usually encapsulates the whole tooth – it’s a 360-degree complete enclosure. A cap is usually used when a tooth has completely broken down and needs major reconstruction. Whereas, a veneer, like the name suggests, is a very thin layer that fits just over the front of the tooth almost like a false fingernail, and it overlaps the edge of the tooth.
