Find our how to restore your teeth to their former glory with dental veneers in Kata Beach. Veneers are simplicity itself for changing the appearance of damaged, misshapen and discolored teeth into a gleaming, white smile you can be proud of.
They are exactly what they say – a veneer of very thin laminate which is fitted over the tooth. The beauty of them, is that they can be fitted really quickly with very little discomfort.
They are so effective that sometimes they can be used instead of orthodontic treatment if you have teeth that are out of position. For many this is a great option as orthodontic treatment is slow and braces are uncomfortable, as well as unsightly.
They are a conservative dental procedure, requiring only the minimal of tooth reduction on the front, unlike crowns which requires the tooth to be filed down
Requiring only a minimal amount of tooth reduction on the front side of the tooth, they are a conservative treatment, unlike a crown which requires the tooth to be filed down considerably for the crown to fit.
Dental veneers in Kata Beach can be fitted in a matter of days, giving you plenty of time to practice your new smile before you return home after your holiday.
The treatment can be completed in a day or two if your clinic has an on-site laboratory. However, for the majority of people it usually takes around 4 days – the first and last day at your dentist and the lab work taking place on your custom-made veneers on the days between.
At your first appointment the dentist will prepare your tooth by removing a very thin sliver of enamel from the front of the tooth. Impressions of your teeth will also be taken and sent to the lab. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold until your new veneer is placed, but it shouldn’t be too uncomfortable.
On your next appointment the veneer will be fixed in place with a light-sensitive resin which hardens using a special white light.
Your dental veneers are very strong once fixed in place - and will usually cope with most of the forces exerted on them by a normal diet.
Visitors from around the world travel to Thailand for dental care and the vast majority are thrilled with the results. Dental clinics are high-spec, fitted with the latest dental technologies and with excellent standards of hygiene, and they have the same world-renowned brands such as eMax!
Obviously, it is important to make sure with any procedure you are having done that you have done your research well as there are good and bad dentists wherever you go. This is why it makes sense to book with Dental Departures. Our quality checks assure you that your dentist will provide good-quality treatment at a clinic that has been visited and approved by us – we don’t recommend any clinic on our website that we are not happy to have treatment in ourselves.
Dental veneers are the easiest way of making a positive change to your smile, without having radical treatment. Unfortunately, the cost at home can often put it out of reach for many people, especially if you require a number of veneers, as many patients do.
At our Kata Beach dentists the prices will certainly make you smile, starting at $325 per veneer, compared to around $1,200 in Australia.
