Dental Veneers refers to a procedure most commonly used in cosmetic dentistry to improve appearance or perhaps protect a damaged tooth. The veneer is usually a thin material made from either a ceramic porcelain or zirconium which is then bonded to the front of the tooth after the tooth has been prepared. The new wonder material for Veneers is Emax which is an all ceramic veneer material which is preferred over and above zirconium due to its longer lasting and better aesthetic qualities.
A normal veneer is likened in thickness to that of your fingernail whilst an ultra thin veneer is compared more to a contact lens in terms of thickness.
In recent years there has been advancements in veneer technology making veneers a more viable treatment option in Budapest. Historically Dentists in Hungary have been a little cautious when consulting with veneer patients due to the high possibility of maintenance that a veneer sometimes requires, no matter how well made they are. Results are generally impressive but if the veneer breaks, chips or comes loose then travelling back to Budapest or Hungary can be inconvenient. In recent years new veneer systems and bonding materials have been introduced into the marketplace as well as new techniques which if done properly eliminates most of the risk. This is not to say that our cosmetic dentist may encourage you to have crowns if they think that this is better for you. Dental crowns are stronger and there are generally no issues over reliability hence they receive a full 3 year guarantee. They need more preparation but lengthy guarantees are given.
Should you decide to travel abroad to Budapest, Hungary for dental veneers then one visit lasting 4 to 5 days is required.
