What is the difference between the e.max Press and zirconia crowns?

Zirconia is recommended for crowns with dark teeth, because the opacity hides the shadows. Both E.MAX and zirconia crowns can be used to repair broken or otherwise damaged teeth, severely decayed teeth, missing teeth, discolored teeth or crooked teeth. Both materials can effectively replace old PFM crowns showing metallic lines. Both materials are biocompatible with all soft and hard tissues. The biggest advantage of E.MAX veneers is that it is not limited to ceramic crowns only. Conversely, this system can also be used to produce veneers, internal veneers, laminated veneers, Lumineers veneers and even short-span bridges to replace anterior teeth.

What are the VENEERS?

Dental veneers are one possible solution to help you get the look you want. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between the teeth, or deformed teeth.

Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to the teeth to give the teeth a more classic look. Albania Dent offers a variety of dental veneer options to choose from. Talk to your dentist about what's best for you.

If you want to improve your smile , dental veneers are an easy option. Veneers are thin coatings that are placed on the front (visible) part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth and can be used to correct a wide range of dental problems, such as:

  • teeth that are colored and cannot be whitened with whitening

  • chipped or worn teeth

  • crooked or misshapen teeth

  • uneven spaces or a large space between the upper front teeth

The veneers are made from porcelain or composite resin material. We will help you choose the most suitable material for you. Each type of VENEERS has its advantages.

Veneers Porcelain Veneers

The Porcelain Veneers is a thin veneer that is custom made to fit the tooth.

Advantages of porcelain veneers:

  • they are strong and durable

  • have a natural looking surface

  • Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or cap

  • they do not get stained easily

Steps to place porcelain veneers:

To prepare the teeth, the dentist usually removes a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the teeth. This makes room for the veneers so that your teeth look natural.

  • The dentist makes an impression of the prepared teeth. The dentist also decides the shade of the veneer that will suit your smile.

Veneers Porcelain Veneers
  • The impression is sent to a dental laboratory that custom-makes the porcelain veneers to fit the teeth. This could take several days. The dentist may give you temporary veneers in the meantime.

  • At the next visit, the dentist places the veneers on the teeth to check their fit and shape. After any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers are bonded to the tooth.

  • Further changes can be made by appointment.

Composite resin dental veneers

A composite resin veneer consists of a tooth-colored filling material bonded to the tooth.

Advantages of composite resin veneers:

  • less tooth enamel usually needs to be removed than with porcelain crowns or veneers

  • may mean fewer visits to the dentist, sometimes these veneers only require one visit

  • they cost less than porcelain veneers

  • they are easy to repair if damaged; although composite veneers are generally not as strong or wear resistant as porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be repaired easily and quickly​

Composite resin dental veneers

Steps to place the composite resin veneers:

  • After the teeth are prepared or reshaped, the dentist carefully glues the composite material using a color that is best for you.

  • A special light is used to harden the composite and fix it to the teeth.

  • The veneers are sanded and polished to look like natural teeth.

Before getting the veneers

​• Teeth and gums must be healthy before veneers are obtained. Your dentist will treat any type of tooth decay before the veneers are placed.

• Veneers are not always a good choice for patients who clench their teeth, as thin veneers can chip or break. If you grit your teeth, your dentist may suggest you wear plastic dental night protection while you sleep.

• Although the dentist removes as little of the tooth enamel for veneers as possible, the process cannot be undone once the enamel is removed.

• It is possible that the veneers get lost over time. If so, they may need to be renewed.

• As with all dental care, discuss all your expectations and treatment options with your dentist. Regular dental visits are a must to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

After making the dental veneers

​• Veneers can chip or break under pressure. Avoid biting your nails and chewing on hard objects, such as pencils or ice.

• It may take a few days to get used to the feel of the veneers. But let your dentist know if your bite is not felt right after the veneer is placed. He or she will correct it before you leave the office.

• Keep your teeth and gums clean by brushing your teeth and flossing every day. It is still possible to obtain cavities under or around the veneers.
