A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is positioned over the preferred or problematic teeth.

Our team of dentists in Dubai can offer you a complete dental check-up, and information about how you can improve your smile with the help of porcelain veneers.

The dental veneer procedure


The dental veneer process can frequently be finished after two visits at our dental clinic in Dubai, in a time span of six to seven weeks, so all patients are advised by our dentists in Dubai to plan the trip taking into consideration the treatment duration. The check-up and diagnostic stage before a dental veneer treatment are important and it detects any oral health problems that must first be solved before veneer placement. Our dentists in Dubai will also help you choose the proper tooth color from a special shade diagram. 

Imaging methods can provide you with a preview of your estimated results; before and after images are very useful in order to see other cases. The next step involves local anesthesia, in order for the patient to be relaxed during tooth preparation and placement of the porcelain veneer. The natural tooth is then arranged with minimal reshaping with a small handheld rotational cutting device named bur in order to provide the proper size. The porcelain veneer is then fixed in place using special cement, a non-toxic ingredient that usually is found in all dental clinics in Dubai. The final step involves applying a light beam over the teeth so that the active ingredients in the cement can strengthen and fix the veneer in position. Here is an infographic with extra details:

Dental veneers charge factors


The cost of dental veneers in Dubai depends on various factors, such as: 

•    the number of teeth needing veneers;
•    the material used (porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite resin ones);
•   the artistic and technical expertise of the ceramist making the veneers and the cosmetic dentist who places the veneers;
•    the position where dental veneers treatment is done; 
•    the type of dental insurance the patient has because usually it doesn´t cover the cosmetic procedures;
•    the charges of the cosmetic dentist performing the procedure.

The dentists in Dubai offer payment plans for cosmetic and dental procedures, after further discussion with the patient. 

During the veneers consultation, the patient will actively contribute to the smile design process and will be able to share the preferences for the color, shape, width, and length of the veneers. The dental veneer procedure can often be finished in two dental appointments over the course of six weeks. The visits are ample and may need some hours of checkup and tooth preparation. To help the patient relax, the dentist might use an easy sedation or audio and visual distractions found in the cabinet. The diagnostic and the checkup phase of dental veneer treatment are necessary and they identify any oral health problems that must first be solved before veneer placement.


The meaning of drill-free veneers in Dubai


Prepless veneers or “drill-free veneers” are a concept that produces numerous feedbacks and beliefs among dentists, fluctuating from total suspicion that they can ease operative repairs, to appreciation for these conventional and innovative works of art. Unluckily, some prepless methods and products spread deeply in the media have shown dense, massive looking repairs, producing skepticism among some dentists and patients. And yet, despite these worries, an indisputable trend is to include not only minimal prep, but also “no-prep” repairs into the compendium of practical treatment choices and substitutes.
 

Potential situations for no-prep veneers


There is an important number of patients who have small teeth for many reasons: acid erosion, genetic factors causing naturally small teeth and gaps between the teeth, differences between jaw size and teeth size. Many times, the teeth in the sides of the smile are placed inward and do not display from a frontal view, so you should consider having drill-free veneers, with the help of our dentist in Dubai. Orthodontic circumstances that concern the extraction of teeth to resolve a crowding problem naturally result in thin arch forms with the teeth that sometimes slope inside. As you know, teeth are genetically deformed. For example, “peg laterals” is an impartially common disorder in which one or both of the teeth next to the two upper front teeth are very small and peg or pin-shaped.

No-prep veneers can make many positive modifications, but there are some conditions that no-prep veneers can't adjust. In situations that contain unsuitable tooth position, poor bite relations, large differences in root position, or a poor facial profile, some form of orthodontic treatment will be necessary to mechanically move the teeth

If orthodontic treatment is rejected, some amount of tooth preparation may be mandatory to generate the illusion of a suitable placement. When veneers are used to cover-up unsuitable tooth positions, it must be used with the idea that there are risks and limitations. Besides drill-free veneers procedure, you can also receive dental implants in Dubai.  It is good to know that our modern dental clinics in Dubai have high-standard dental instruments, proper for every treatment plan.
