Lecture : 4 min. par Harmonie

When it comes to choosing the ideal treatment for beautiful, white, and aligned teeth, you have several options. To act on the whiteness, but also on the alignment, position, structure and morphology of the teeth, teeth whitening is not enough. However, veneers are an ideal cosmetic solution to correct multiple aesthetic defects of the teeth. There are two types of dental veneers to use in cosmetic dentistry: composite veneers and porcelain veneers. To obtain a flawless and natural-looking result, choose porcelain veneers.

Why do our BodyExpert dental technicians recommend Emax veneers?

Emax porcelain veneers are considered the best on the market. Made of lithium glass ceramic, Emax porcelain veneers provide a natural and long-lasting result. The Emax porcelain veneer offers an aesthetic appearance very close to the natural teeth.

What are the indications for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can improve the color of one or more teeth. Indeed, they are a long-lasting alternative to tooth whitening to conceal stains caused by tobacco, coffee, or tea on the teeth.

The use of veneers is also indicated to correct a dental misalignment, compensate for height differences, and fill gaps. In the case of sharp, chipped, damaged, or short teeth, porcelain dental veneers will change the shape and appearance of the teeth.

What are the contraindications of porcelain veneers?

There are very few contraindications to the application of porcelain veneers. It is not recommended to use this type of cosmetic dentistry treatment in the following cases:

  • If one or more teeth are decayed: it will be necessary to perform a clinical assessment beforehand to ensure that no tooth is decayed. If this is not the case, root canal will have to be performed before bonding the veneers.
  • If the teeth or gums suffer from an infection: in the case of periodontal disease, abscesses, inflammation or periodontitis, care must be taken before applying the veneers.

A bad jaw occlusion, a tooth that is too thin or too damaged, and a thin enamel are also contraindications to the application of dental veneers, whether composite or porcelain veneers.
