Very few of us are fortunate enough to have naturally straight, white and even teeth. While laborious orthodontic work can straighten teeth at a young age, there are often one or two teeth that become discoloured or misshapen, spoiling your smile. For those who’ve never had orthodontic work, a straight smile might seem like a pipe dream, unless you undergo years of wearing uncomfortable and, let’s face it, ugly braces.

However, dental veneers offer an effective solution to these problems, albeit for a rather high price in the UK and other European countries.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, hard-wearing slivers of material that are attached to the front of individual teeth. They disguise imperfections, such as chips, cracks and discolouration and look entirely natural—just as long as you don’t go mad on the shade of white!

Made to measure, they are colour-matched to your other teeth. Veneers can be used singly or in rows to cover several, or all of your teeth. For a smile makeover, normally four or six veneers are used on each row to transform only the teeth that show when you smile.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Before you even consider dental veneers, it’s imperative that you have good oral and dental health. Dental veneers are placed on the front of the teeth, and if you have any areas of decay or gum disease, then veneers are only going to cover up these problems, which will only get worse. Moreover, the veneers are likely to fall off.

What Are The Advantages of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers have a number of benefits:

● They are long-lasting

● They are hard-wearing

● They look like your own teeth

● They resist stains

● The treatment is quick, unlike orthodontic work

● They are colour-matched to your own teeth

● The tooth’s structure is not compromised much

● Patients with sensitive gums can tolerate them

What Are the Disadvantages of Veneers?

While dental veneers are a great option for the majority of people with healthy teeth and gums, you will need to maintain an excellent oral hygiene regime to keep it that way.

Furthermore, if you suffer from bruxism (jaw clenching and/or teeth grinding) you may not be a suitable candidate for veneers as excessive force can damage your veneers or break them off.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers treatment usually requires two or three visits to the dentist in Egypt.

1: Consultation, Examination and Treatment Planning: You will have a thorough consultation and examination from the dentist to assess your mouth, find out your requirements and what you are hoping to achieve. The dentist will talk about the limitations of veneers, maintenance and the available materials for your veneers, which is something you should think carefully about before you decide to go ahead.

2: Preparation: The procedure for dental veneers requires a sliver of enamel to be removed from the teeth receiving a veneer; this is to ensure the veneer is in line with your other teeth. Once the dentist has prepared the teeth, the impression of the teeth are taken and sent to a laboratory where your new veneers are custom-made to fit.

3: Veneers Placement: When the dentist has received your veneers from the lab, you can return to have them fitted. The dentist will check them for colour and fit, making any minor adjustments to ensure a good fit. A strong, light-activated adhesive is used to bond each veneer securely to the teeth to complete the procedure.

CAD/CAM Dentistry

Many dental clinics now offer computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM), where veneers can be made on-site, while you wait. This may not be an option if you are having a large number of veneers but it may be possible if you are having just one or two.

Can I Trust the Quality of Veneers in Egypt?

In Egypt, private dental clinics are generally of high quality, equipped with the latest technologies to deliver accurate diagnoses and positive treatment outcomes. Dentists are highly-skilled with the expertise to offer high standards of cosmetic dentistry that is easily on a par with dental facilities at home.

The key to achieving excellent results is doing your own homework to find a facility you are comfortable with that has a good reputation. Booking with Dental Departures gives you the assurance that the clinic is reliable, as we have already carried out our own background checks on all the facilities listed with us.
