Sometimes Veneers Are Seen to Be Thick

Patients in the past might have avoided veneers because they perceive that the final look would look bulky and thick. However, bad cases have seen the thickness often appear on the edge of the tooth.

From the front of the smile, the teeth may look bulky and push the lips creating a ‘pout’ look. From the back of the teeth, there will be thickness at the edge, which may annoy the tongue and also perhaps cause a bite issue.

Bad practice can often give the wrong impression of veneer treatments and procedures. The finished look entirely depends on the essential sculpting and restorative skills of your dentist.

Reasons for Bulky Veneers Include:

Thick veneers were often placed as the older porcelain ceramics need a minimum thickness of 0.7mm to achieve adequate strength, or they were designed to be thick if the ceramics used do not have adequate experience.

Emax, the ceramic material we use, is very hard, often five times the strength of the older materials. Our veneers can be made very thin ( 0.3mm), especially when using variants of EMax porcelain.

The edge of the tooth may not have been finely adjusted to allow a thin veneer edge:

This is often the case if the teeth are rotated or if the teeth are more prominent. 

There is a fine balance between adjusting the tooth significantly and not enough. It is the experience and knowledge of preparation techniques, artistry and ceramic materials that will create the thin veneer.

Experts in Thin Veneers

Our highly recommended dental clinic has placed tens of thousands of thin veneers. Our experienced technicians have access to the latest treatments and technologies.

Replacement veneer treatments are possible for most patients who wish to replace and upgrade their existing veneers with new advanced treatments such as Lumineers, Durathin and Ultrathin veneers.

Through creating a trial preview with new temporary veneers, you can be reassured that your new replacement veneers will not be thick looking but have a thin edge.

Ultrathin Veneers, Durathin Veneers and Lumineers involve no drilling or injections since no tooth is being cut.

To understand your specific need and possibility, booking an appointment to see a cosmetic dentist may be worthwhile.

Pain-free Treatments

Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.

However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down after the final fitting – this is quite normal and nothing to worry over. It usually only lasts for a few days and very soon after subsidies. More.

The sensitivity is due to the bonding process where an inorganic substance (the veneer) bonded to an organic component (your tooth).

In complex cases, involving a large amount of treatment, you may experience a little uncomfortableness while your teeth settle down.

Treatment Plan
  • At your first appointment, your dentist will look at the general health of your teeth and gums, your bite and understand your goals for your smile; and then see if any fundamental issues need addressing before cosmetic veneer work can begin.
  • We will also discuss the type of veneers that may be suitable and how many veneers you’ll likely need to achieve your desired smile. In some patients, it may be possible to get some veneers placed at an initial phase and then have the possibility of additional shells in the future.

Minimal or No Preparation
  • We will always plan your new smile before any treatment begins. We aim to provide you with the most conservative and preservative dentistry.
  • To prevent excessive tooth preparation, we design your new smile in a way that minimises tooth preparation. We also provide options to have orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment carried out before any cosmetic veneer work starts.
  • Your teeth are already well aligned, so very minimal or hardly any tooth preparation becomes necessary.
  • If you are concerned, we advise that you speak to us in your complimentary consultation. We will be able to provide you with suitable solutions. More.
