Dental veneers are laminates which are fitted over your tooth. They are wafer thin, but very strong – and they can be fitted quickly and with the minimum of discomfort.
They can be used to hide a multitude of cosmetic dentistry problems, including uneven teeth, discolored teeth, damaged teeth and even gaps. They are so effective and versatile they can be an alternative to expensive and time-consuming orthodontic treatment, as well as being considerably more beautiful than braces.
Unlike other procedures, such as crowns which require the tooth to be filed down considerably, dental veneers require only the smallest tooth reduction to fit – just a sliver from the front of the tooth.
In Karon Beach your dental veneers can be made and fitted in a matter of days and are not likely to impede the enjoyment of your holiday as the procedure is not painful.
If your clinic has an on-site laboratory, and if you only need one or two veneers, you may be lucky enough to get them done in one day. This is the exception rather than the rule, and for most people it will usually take around 4 days. One the first and last day you will have appointments with your dentist, and on days 2 and 3 the lab will be working on your veneers.
At your first appointment the tooth will be prepared by removing a very thin layer of enamel from the front of the tooth. It isn’t painful, but you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold until the new veneer is fixed. Your dentist will also take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab.
When the veneers are ready, a few days later, you will go back to your dentist to have them fixed permanently in place with a light-sensitive resin, which hardens and bonds the veneers to your teeth.
Once fixed in place your veneers are extremely hard-wearing and will usually cope with most of the forces exerted on them by a normal diet.
Visitors have been traveling to Thailand for dental care in increasing numbers over the years. Although it is seen as a relatively poor country, its healthcare facilities are among the best in the world. The money that medical and dental tourism has brought in has been re-invested into ever more modern hospitals and clinics, kitted out with the newest dental technologies and manned by highly-trained and specialist staff.
Dentists in Thailand are well trained and all must be registered to practice. However, it is still important to do thorough research and to make sure you have found out as much as you can about your dentist and the clinic you would like to make an appointment with.
