NO MORE TOOTH SHAPING OR MATERIALS LIKE DENTURES. TODAY DENTAL VENEERS ARE MADE OF PLATINUM TO GIVE YOU A NATURAL EFFECT NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
Dental veneers are an increasingly popular treatment in almost all dental studios and are applied to correct any aesthetic imperfection related to the shape, color and positioning of the teeth, so as to achieve incomparable results compared to other preivously used dental techniques.
Today the market offers various types of veneers. Obviously, not all are made in the same way, just as the materials used can vary considerably from clinic to clinic.
We can generically subdivide dental veneers into 3 categories:
– Industrial veneers
– Semi-industrial veneers
– Crafted veneers
The industrial veneers, as the term suggests, are made by real industries producing dental artifacts: they are almost all produced in America and give you the worst possible result in terms of aesthetic and dental functions.
These are pre-packed veneers, so the patient can only choose the color and the shape but it is not possible to replicate all the complex nuances of a natural tooth, as they are made by machines that mass-produce enormous quantities of standardized veneers. The final result is always very similar to dentures, regardless of the shade of white used. In addition, over time these veneers can cause strong inflammation of the gums and permanent hypersensitivity, which is due to the technique required to apply them. Semi-industrial veneers are qualitatively better than industrial ones, but they also have strong drawbacks in terms of aesthetics and application.
They are created by special machines called CAD CAM, often available directly at the studio and are able to make the final prosthetic product in just a few hours through a digital dental impression and a 3D computer study. The disadvantage of the veneers realized by CAD CAM lies in their application method: having a thickness of about 1 mm, they require tooth shaping in order to avoid ending up with buck teeth.
Therefore, it is a rather invasive operation as the dental structure is not 100% preserved; moreover, the aesthetic effect is not one of the best ones, as the machinery is not able to perfectly replicate the typical features of a natural tooth.
