What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are mostly made from porcelain or composite resin, which requires highly preparatory work to create an even, most aesthetic dental appearance. But there are also no-prep veneers, which require different processes. Dental veneers in Bangalore are very demanding; we at Dr. Karishma Aesthetics frequently deal with cases requiring the most aesthetically pleasing, symmetrical smile in an easy-peasy way, requiring the utmost attention.

Dental veneer costs may vary from one patient to another depending on their requirement, desired goals, chosen type of veneers, location of the dental clinic/center, and expertise of the dentist. However, the cost of porcelain veneers is higher than composite veneers and a single piece of porcelain in India may come between 11,000-14,000 INR. In contrast, composite resin veneers may range from 3,000 to 7,000 INR. One must note that the cost of dental veneers in India, especially Bangalore, is just one-fourth of the cost applicable in the USA, UK, and UAE—however, patients from across the globe throng to India to get affordable veneer treatment with quality results.

What Are the Different Options for Veneers?

The two most common dental veneer types include porcelain and composite resin, which require intense prep work. But no-prep veneers are also available that involve different application processes.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells attached to the front surface of the teeth to conceal imperfections, such as cracked, chipped, short, and ill-shaped teeth, resulting in a more aesthetically accepted dental appearance with improved position, shape, color, and durability. Porcelain veneers are a great option for those seeking correction for their crooked teeth and when they do not want to invest their time and money in braces. Porcelain veneers act as a dental lamination of your teeth and perfectly conceal the imperfections, resulting in whiter, brighter, and more perfectly shaped teeth, enhancing your smile's beauty.

·       It is in high demand due to its stain-resistant property and makes dark teeth appear whiter.

What are Composite Veneers?

Composite resin veneers involve etching the tooth's surface to apply a thin composite material layer to the prepared tooth. An additional layer of composite veneer may be required based on one's desired look and results. The board-certified dentist will finish by curling or hardening, the composite veneer using the special light.

What are No-prep Veneers?

No-prep veneers include options like Lumineers and Vivaneers, and they are specific brands of porcelain veneers, which is a minimally invasive option. It takes less time to apply and can be effectively performed without local anesthesia. No-prep veneers do not involve removing layers of the tooth. Instead, it only affects the enamel.

How To Prepare for Your Appointment?

Before getting the veneers, it is inevitable to attend an introductory consultation with your board-certified dentist to know the status of your teeth, which helps decide the best type of veneer. First and foremost, your dentist will take an X-ray to evaluate the exact status of your teeth to decide whether you are a suitable candidate for dental veneers. However, if a person has too crooked teeth, they may get recommended to have braces before veneers. Moreover, if a patient has signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or need for root canals, they may not be a candidate for a veneer procedure. If a patient meets the candidacy, they are called for a second visit, in which the accurate size of veneers is identified. However, the dentist trims down about half of a millimeter of the patient's tooth before taking an impression of their teeth. Furthermore, the impression is sent to the lab to create the veneers.

How Are Veneers Put on Teeth?

Getting your veneers ready and received from the lab typically takes one to two weeks. The next appointments are scheduled to evaluate your veneers' shape, fit, and color to ensure they are perfect based on your natural teeth. Next, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned before applying veneers to avoid bacterial infections. Further, the grinding tools create a rougher texture on each tooth on which a veneer will be applied. In addition, dental cement is used to bond the veneer to the tooth. Dentists use ultraviolet light to harden this cement perfectly.

The second appointment typically lasts only 1-2 hours; again, it may vary from patient to patient based on the number of veneers required to be applied and if a local anesthetic is used.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

The cost of veneer procedure in Bangalore ranges from 7000 to 16000 INR, cannot be stated as an exact figure, and may vary from patient to patient. The cost of veneers is highly influenced by the type of veneers being applied, the number of veneers to be done, the status of irregularity of the teeth, and the desired look/ goals. On the other hand, external factors like the recognition and certification of the dentist, the accreditation of the clinic/center, and the geographical location of the clinic also influence the cost factor. One must note that porcelain veneers are more costly than composite veneers. However, the cost of veneers in India is four times less than in subcontinents like Northern America, Northwestern Europe, and other European countries like Australia, Greece, France, Italy, and Romania.
