Importance of veneers in Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers are an important component in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry. Like nail extensions, these veneers actually are put over the teeth, directly or indirectly, as the needs may call, for covering the flaws, thereby giving your teeth an attractive look.

Types and their Features

Veneers, based on their techniques are mainly divided in to two parts, which are the following:

  • Prep Veneers.
  • Non-Prep Veneers.

Each of these veneers has been gaining quite significance because of their uses and benefits. As the names suggest, these two veneers consist of some basic differences, because of which each of them has different kinds of demands. Some of the main differences are hereby discussed in brief below:

  • Prep Veneers are made of porcelain where the Non-Prep Veneers are made of composite.
  • Prep Veneers need some preparation, like taking the impression of teeth or taking the tooth enamel. On the other hand, non-prep veneers does not include any kind of preparation like drilling or applying anaesthesia. In fact it is quite lesser painful than the prep ones.
  • Prep Veneers stay for a longer period of time while the Non-Prep Veneers stay for shorter period of time.

How and why Non-Prep Veneers are Growing?

Compared to the conventional ones, non-prep veneers have gained higher attention because of its multiple features. Nevertheless, the conventional ones had been quite dominant. Some of these basic reasons why Non-Prep Veneers are winning over are:

  • Non-Prep Veneers are cheaper than Prep or Conventional ones.
  • Non-Prep Veneers are less painful.
  • Non-Prep Veneers stay for a shorter period of time, thus allowing the patient to reveal the original smile.

Each one of them has their own distinct qualities that make them such important issue in Cosmetic Dentistry. Nevertheless, gaining beauty has become easier!
