What are the advantages of dental veneers?

First it was the preserve of Hollywood’s biggest stars! These stars flaunted dazzling smiles and well-aligned teeth. But then the Hollywood smile became more democratic: nowadays, patients all over the world are asking for their smiles to be perfected.
Tunisia is no exception. The demand for dental veneers has exploded and become the most popular form of dental surgery.

For my health traveler, this was to be expected, given the many advantages offered by this technique.
In fact, dental veneers are the latest in a long line of techniques designed to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance.
In particular, dental veneers help to change tooth shade, reshape an unsightly shape, correct cracked teeth, harmonize slight misalignments and fill gaps between teeth.
The aim is to enhance the overall appearance of your smile.

Depending on the material chosen, we distinguish between three types of veneer:
Composite veneers, ceramic veneers and porcelain veneers.

Composite veneers, ceramic veneers and porcelain veneers.

Composite veneers are fabricated on site in the dental office from a biomaterial. The biomaterial consists of an organic resin matrix mechanically reinforced with mineral fillers.
The color spectrum is not extensive. These veneers are therefore often used for minor problems of tooth shade or shape.
They have the advantage of being shaped and bonded directly to the teeth in a single appointment. This is the least expensive alternative, but offers a less aesthetic and less natural appearance. Composite veneers last from 3 to 5 years, but are easily repaired when necessary.

Ceramic veneers are made from glazed clay components. They are porous, but still quite resistant. Since they are less likely to pass for regular teeth, ceramic veneers or crowns are generally reserved for covering back teeth.

Porcelain veneers are made from a variety of minerals fused together to form a solid, highly dense product. Thanks to this composition, the final product is waterproof. What’s more, it can be colored to match the patient’s enamel or taste. Being the densest, porcelain veneers are the most waterproof, which is why they are considered to be the most durable and suitable.

Installing ceramic or porcelain veneers requires two appointments: First, Dr Aref Damek prepares the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel (around 0.1mm, equivalent to the thickness of a leaf), takes your dental impressions and fits temporary veneers. Once made, He removes the temporary veneers and places the permanent ones.
The procedure is completely painless. It requires no special care. The result is always perfect, and it’s done in just a few days.

Porcelain or ceramic veneers offer a natural, aesthetic appearance. They preserve the brilliance and translucency of teeth without damaging them. Stain-resistant, they last from 10 to 15 years.

So it’s only natural that we recommend porcelain dental veneers, the most popular alternative worldwide.
This new dental surgery technique offers very natural results, so porcelain veneers are completely indistinguishable from other teeth.
