Savings: £350 - £600 per tooth | Time required: Usually one visit to Krakow

 A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, just like a false fingernail fits over a nail. They make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond very little preparation of the tooth is needed. In our dental clinics in Poland, you can have a new set of veneers done over just one trip to our state-of-the-art detnal clinics in Krakow.

Advantages of veneers

Veneers (often made of porcelain) are used to make teeth appear straighter and healthier, and will also provide a more aesthetically pleasing alignment. Dental veneers can also be used to close small gaps between teeth, often when orthodontic treatments (braces) are not suitable or cannot be used. Porcelain veneers make discoloured and damaged teeth look shiny and also protect them from any further damage.

3 Under-Looked Benefits of Dental Veneers

Ever feel affronted by your smile? Or experience the dreaded social awkwardness when someone in your party pulls out the phone and says the word that’s like nails to a chalkboard – Smile!

It’s all well and good when you’re comfortable with your smile, but what happens when you’re not? Chances are, when you feel any level of awkwardness about your teeth or gums, like most, you’ll do what you can do to hide the imperfections. From the instant you’re consciously aware of yellowing or stained teeth, to what you think are abnormal gaps between your teeth, or a gummy smile or a picture-perfect metallic filling that’s glaringly obvious the instant you move your mouth.

…All of these can be improved with dental veneers done in our clinics in Krakow, Poland.

Veneers can make your teeth appear straighter, cleaner, whiter, and they can change the shape and length of your teeth. Right after fitting, you’ll be eager to have your picture taken with the biggest smile your face has shown in a long time.

Look Younger Instantly

The signs of ageing are difficult to reverse. A range of procedures are available but none as simple and with the instant gratification of seeing yourself look naturally younger with a whiter smile.

Ageing takes its toll on everyone. Eventually, your teeth will show the signs of everyday wear and tear, be it with cracks, chips, fillings or begin to fade in colour making your smile look dull.

Custom dental veneers – whether made of porcelain or porcelain laminate materials – can always give your smile an instant makeover, helping you look your natural age.

Best Confidence Booster Ever

When your confidence is affected by any cosmetic problem, it’s likely showing in your interactions with friends, family, co-workers and everyone else you interact with.

If you aren’t comfortable with your smile, it can make social occasions awkward. Dental veneers are the fastest way to get over cosmetic dental issues by instantly improving the look of your teeth without any significant work involved. The only thing required is some light prep work, some design work to tailor the veneer to your tooth (or more) then the veneer is fitted over your tooth and fixed in place permanently.

The most unexpected benefit most don’t know is this:

Dental tourism can you save you hundreds per tooth without sacrificing on quality or taking unnecessary risks. High-quality veneers fitted by experienced dentists should last for years. The procedure is as simple as a single consultation when the dentist will consult with you about the work, the process involved and the results to expect.

Questions and answers on dental veneers

How do I know if I need a veneer?

Veneers are designed to improve the shape, position, and colour of your natural teeth. Created from thin porcelain, you can select the best colour for your teeth in order to cover discolouration and staining or to lighten the colour. Veneers can also help to cover up chips and gaps and are designed to look like your natural teeth, but a much better version of them! Orthodontics aren’t always suitable for closing gaps, whereas veneers are a much better alternative. Also, in Poland these veneers cost around 60% less than you would have to pay in the private dental clinic in the UK.

How to know if porcelain veneer will work for you?

Porcelain veneers are ideally suited to those who have perhaps some tooth discolouration, and those who have a natural bite that isn’t too heavy. Those troubled with teeth grinding or jaw clenching may be more suited to crowns, which cover more of the tooth. With porcelain veneers, only a 0.5mm to 1mm of your natural tooth enamel is filed back to have a custom-made porcelain veneer bonded to the surface and the top of the tooth. Quality veneers, with quality dental care, once fitted can last for decades.

What other options are available?

For minor repairs to front teeth, fillers can be used. These are natural-coloured filling materials – not your usual silver or gold types. These don’t work so well for broken tooth corners and there will always be a visible join between the tooth and the filler.

Porcelain crowns are often used when teeth require straightening – something which is often caused by fillings or root canal treatment.

How long will a veneer last?

Your veneers will last for many years, but they aren’t totally infallible. As they are a very realistic tooth replacement, they can chip just like real teeth. Chips can be easily repaired or replaced with a new veneer if necessary, so this shouldn’t cause undue worry.

What preparation is required for veneers?

This depends on your specific situation, but usually it is necessary to remove some of the shiny outer surface enamel from your tooth in order to ensure that the veneer can properly adhere to the tooth. The thickness of the enamel removed is very slight – the same as the thickness of the veneer, ensuring your teeth are the same thickness as they were before the treatment. Local anaesthetic is usually unnecessary, but can be given if you experience any discomfort. Impressions will also be taken to ensure that the size and shape of the veneer looks completely natural. The colour and shade of surrounding teeth is also taken into account in order to ensure the teeth look as natural as they possibly can.

How long will the procedure take?

The entire veneer procedure can be completed either on one longer trip to Krakow or over two shorter visits. One visit is required in order to check the shade of your teeth and to prepare the tooth and take an impression. On the second visit, the veneer is fitted. The dentist will make sure you are happy with the veneer first of all by showing it to you and placing it over your tooth before bonding it.

How to take care of porcelain veneers?

Caring for porcelain veneers is no different than caring for your natural teeth. Routinely brushing, flossing and eating the right foods is good for your teeth and dental veneers. For best care, have a dental check-up every six months. This gives dentists the best chance at spotting potential problems early.

Be cautious about how you chew. Chewing anything hard will grind your natural teeth, and with porcelain veneers, they can chip and crack, just like the enamel on your teeth can too. Avoid fingernail biting, chewing pen caps and biting into anything frozen.

Charcoal based toothpaste and any other abrasive kinds of toothpastes are best avoided as while they can help whiten natural teeth; they can cause discolouration of dental veneers.
