Why Porcelain Veneers are called Instant Orthodontics

Here at American Dental Clinic Dubai, we have used porcelain veneers to address the dental care needs of many patients in the UAE. Porcelain veneers are such a flexible and effective form of cosmetic dentistry, that they are popularly known as “instant orthodontics” to some.

The Clinic will go over the basics of Porcelain Veneers Dubai and why they are a much acclaimed form of treatment among dental health professionals and patients, and how instant orthodontics performs much better than traditional orthodontics.

Porcelain Veneers are also known as dental veneers, and they are thin shells of specially crafted dental ceramic that are designed to fit the front part of the teeth. Once the porcelain veneers are placed, they are able to mask aesthetic imperfections from view, making an individual’s smile look beautiful.

Porcelain veneers are popularly called “instant orthodontics” by many dental care professionals because the results are so good that it makes patients appear as if they’ve undergone Orthodontics in Dubai with braces. In just as few as two visits, a patient’s smile can be dramatically enhanced with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are this effective and can cause a dramatic effect.

The secret behind this versatile treatment is the composition of the porcelain veneers themselves. The dental material that is used is semi-translucent and light passes through the teeth slightly, just like natural teeth. This is the reason that it may seem like a patient has undergone orthodontic care, when in reality they have only had veneers in place.

Porcelain veneers are ideal for treating the following dental imperfections that are primarily cosmetic in nature,

  • Tooth gaps
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are different sizes
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Stained teeth

Porcelain Veneers and Traditional Orthodontics

Most people wonder if they should just get porcelain veneers or undergo actual orthodontic treatment. While instant orthodontics are great for some patient’s, other’s may need traditional orthodontic treatment.

Patients who suffer from dental issues such as tooth misalignment or malocclusion are good candidates for a full orthodontic treatment to achieve optimal dental health. When malocclusion is severe, the crooked teeth can lead to pain and teeth grinding. If this is left untreated, it can result in serious dental health problems, including TMJ disorders.

For patients whose dental problems are predominantly aesthetic, porcelain veneers are the ideal treatment. When an individual’s dental problems affect their general health and wellness, the most preferred option is orthodontic care or restorative dental care. Dental care is always customized to suit the patient, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’.
