Everyone desires a perfect smile to leave a first impression that lasts. A smile that attracts and says that you are the most confident person in the building. Cosmetic dentistry and Dental Veneers Dubai have made it possible to get the smile you always desired. Dental Veneers can transform and enhance the shape, size, appearance, and even functionality of the teeth. If you have chipped, broken, discolored, or gapped teeth, this treatment is for you.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental Veneers or Porcelain Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells molded around teeth in particular ways. These shells are used in dentistry because of their soft touch and reliable strength. Generally, these veneers are attached to the front of the teeth and completely cover them. Dental Veneers cover the front side of teeth to effectively enhance their shape, size, color, and appearance.
Laminate Veneers Dubai or Ultra-Thin Veneers are extremely thin and can be directly placed onto the affected tooth. Most of the time, no further grinding or molding is required with ultra-thin dental veneers. Besides their thinness, they perform the same function as veneers. The procedure is relatively simple and less costly.
Aim of Dental Veneers
Dental Veneers aim to:
- get rid of discolored teeth
- reshape irregularly shaped teeth
- treat teeth that are chipped or broken

You can get Dental Veneers if you:
- have good oral hygiene
- have healthy gum tissues

Types of Dental Veneers
Several types of dental veneers are available in the market right now. Generally, the practitioner chooses the best one based on the candidate’s desired results.
Some commonly used types of veneers are as follows:
Porcelain is a vitrified ceramic material usually translucent and white. Porcelain Veneers Dubai has a soft touch, and they are very durable at the same time. Veneers made of porcelain material are widely used as crowns and bridges to improve the appearance and function of teeth.
Porcelain material is shaped and molded to perfectly grasp onto the tooth. Resins can be used to make Composite Veneers, to serve the same purpose.
Although Laminates are similar to Porcelain Veneers, they differ in their density. Usually, the latter is thicker than the former. People often mistake them for super-thin porcelain veneers.
3D Veneers Teeth
3D Dental Veneers are also similar to porcelain veneers. The only visible difference is between the shape of these caps. 3D Veneers have a better structure that easily grasps onto the affected teeth to improve their appearance, structure, and size.
Candidates don’t need to worry about preparing for the procedure as the dentist communicates all information to them before the procedure. They only have to inform the dentist about their intended result.
Make sure the dentist is qualified, and the type of veneer being used is the right one for you. Most of the time, dentists take an X-ray of the candidate’s teeth for a better look.
The step-by-step procedure for Dental Veneers Dubai is as follows:
- The dentist first reshapes the tooth surface. The reshaping allows accommodating the thickness of the veneer is placed.
- Then, he/she uses a general anesthetic to numb the area before trimming off the enamel surface of the teeth.
- After that, a model of the candidate’s tooth is made and sent to the laboratory for making customized veneers.
- Laboratory-made veneers are then placed on the candidate’s tooth to magically enhance their smile.
Dental veneers do not require any special aftercare. However, practicing good oral hygiene that includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash will ensure a smooth recovery.
Recovery and Results
Generally, the life span of veneers is directly dependent upon how much the candidate cares for their oral hygiene. However, Dental or Porcelain Veneers usually last between 8-10 years. After this time, they have to be replaced with new ones.
There are numerous benefits of Dental Veneers. Some of the most prominent benefits include:
- They instantly improve the smile.
- Porcelain veneers do not have any stain and are stain-resistant.
- They do not require as much remolding or reshaping as a crown.
- Dental veneers do not look artificial and have a natural appearance.
