What are veneers?
In general a thin shell that is attached on top of your tooth to for example change shape, colour or size. Sometimes these can be placed directly on top of the tooth, without doing anything irreversible, and sometimes more room needs to be created to get a better fit. .
Material – porcelain
Often when we hear veneers it is made with porcelain. Porcelain veneers achieve the highest shine, lasts the longest and requires less maintenance. If you go to Dentist Sebastian these will always be made by hand in Oslo by an extremely talented dental technician to give you as good of a result as possible. Porcelain veneers are often associated with people in Hollywood.
Material – composite
A method that has become very popular lately is composite veneers. These are also highly aesthetical, but require slightly more maintenance to keep a polished look. The advantage with composite is that it to a larger degree is made on top of your teeth without the need to “create space”, requires fewer visits and costs ca 1/3 of porcelain.
It is also to a larger degree a reversible procedure – even if it is very few who wishes to go back to their “normal” teeth afterwards.
