Veneers in Hawaii stand out from most other dental treatments because they are purely cosmetic. Just like teeth whitening, veneers are designed to enhance a person’s image and nothing more. Many celebrities have had this procedure done as to keep up their personal image. You didn’t honestly think that every celebrity was born with a perfect smile did you? In any case, it is always the dentist who must determine through a clinical examination if the patient may or may not make use of veneers. However, there is the alternative of full porcelain crowns.
Types of veneers: advantages and disadvantages
There are 2 types of veneers:
1. Porcelain: Its main advantages are its power of adhesion, abrasion resistance and high aesthetic sense. They do not wear out over time and do not lose brightness, which means their color remains intact. Once cemented, the patient can eat normally. Many personalities from public life and the media make use of this technique for an attractive smile. Its main drawback is that there is a need to slightly reduce the enamel. They are also more expensive and require at least two sessions.
2. Composite: These are made with the same material that fillings are made of. With the passage of time they deteriorate, lose brightness and darken. They have the advantage of being cheaper and yet you still retain the full amount of enamel you started out with. In addition, they are performed in a single session.
Duration depends on the patient’s habits. Its average duration is about 12 years. Sometimes, when the patient has a strong impact (bite), veneers in Hawaii can fracture or break off. If the veneer is intact, it can be bonded back into place. If it’s broken, the dentist can reapply a new one in a few days. While the new veneer is being constructed, another provisional composite veneer is placed.
This procedure has almost no disadvantages, except the preparation involved with technique and placement, which concerns the dentist. If the veneer poorly adapts, he or she can try and place a new one. Once placed, the patient forgets about them and can eat and speak normally, but should always try to avoid excessively biting on things.
