Dental veneers are very thin shells or caps, usually attached to the front visible area of our teeth. Veneers are used to cover dental imperfections and aestheticallyimprovea person’s appearance and smile. To achieve the desired look, veneers are usually permanently glued to the front upper teeth. The attachment process is painless and the result looks natural, indistinguishable from your original teeth.
Chairside vs Dental lab veneers
Veneers can be installed with the chairside method or the dental lab method. With the chairside procedure, the veneers are installedwhile you are sitting on the dentist’s chair. After the teeth have been cleaned and the enamel has been ground, the tooth to be treated is measured and the color of the veneers is precisely determined based on the tooth’s condition. The veneers are then fabricated using special techniques and equipment, glued to the prepared tooth area by a dentist, and then cured with a UV lamp. In practice, however, the chairside procedure is not commonly used.
With the dental lab method, the veneers are prepared in a dental laboratory. The treatment takes place in two sessions. In the first session, after tooth cleaning and grinding of the affected teeth, a dental impression is made and the patient is informed about the veneer treatment process. Sometimes, provisional veneers are inserted before the final veneers are inserted. The subsequent treatment is painless and does not require anesthesia. The veneers prepared in the dental laboratory are attached to the teethusing glue in a second session. This type of veneeris more popular because it lasts a long time, is perfectly fitting, and looks natural.

Healthy, well-cared-for teeth and gums are a basic requirement for the installation of veneers. It is therefore advisable to have professional teeth cleaning carried out before the procedure. In this way, plaque and tartar are removed and discolorations are corrected, ensuring the right color for the veneers is correctly determined.
