Dental Veneers: Installation And Price

What is a dental veneer? 

Dental veneers are extremely thin mini shells (0.6 to 0.7 mm thick), which the dentist sticks to the visible part of one or more teeth to improve their appearance, like false nails . Dental veneers are made to measure in order to perfectly adapt to the teeth and are an alternative to dental crowns . Easy to install, they also offer a very natural result that lasts over time.

Dental veneer before / after: What are the advantages? 

Facets are widely used for: 

  •  Correct the shape of the teeth
  •  Correct tooth alignment
  •  Improve the color of the teeth

Thanks to this process, it becomes very easy to hide defects. Dental veneers are obviously intended for visible front teeth. No need therefore to consider them for molars! 

What type of dental veneers to choose? 

Ceramic veneers : The ceramic veneer is the most commonly used. Ceramic is a material that is perfectly compatible with living tissue, the mechanical and optical properties of which are similar to those of natural teeth.

Composite veneers : Composite veneers

, a kind of resin, are less used because they offer a less aesthetic rendering and are less solid in use. 

Porcelain veneers : 

There are also porcelain veneers. These are 0.2mm thick mini shells that can be fitted very simply without prior cutting of the teeth. However, there is a lack of nuances and luminosity with a less aesthetic result than the ceramic veneer. Porcelain veneers are contraindicated in the case of teeth tilted forward or prominent because of the risk of “over volume”. 

Placement of dental veneers: How are they put in place? 

You should plan about two or three sessions of one hour each . 

The first is intended to establish an aesthetic project which will have to meet the wishes of the patient. During the second session, the practitioner cuts the teeth then takes an impression of the preparations and places  temporary veneers.  During the third session, he proceeds to the installation of the final veneers . It takes about 45 minutes to bond a dental veneer .

Devitalize A Tooth :

What is tooth devitalization?

Focus on dental devitalization :

Devitalization is an intervention that takes place under local anesthesia to allow the patient to feel no pain.

Despite all the precautions that we can take in terms of hygiene and diet, we can develop cavities. Left untreated, decay can irreversibly reach the pulp. The only solution to calm the pain is tooth root canalization in order to allow the patient to chew normally and also to find a good speech.

The principle of dental devitalization

Still called root canal treatment or root canal treatment , devitalization is the act of removing pulp tissue from the root of a tooth. In other words, the dentist deprives the tooth of all the blood vessels and nerves which are at the origin of the sensitivity and above all, the pain felt.

The specifics of dental devitalization

It can be performed on all teeth. On the other hand, it is very rare that it is performed on a wisdom tooth. The latter are most often extracted when they are affected by decay or infection. After the operation, dentists generally recommend a dental crown , because the devitalized tooth becomes brittle and is at risk of breaking. The fitting of the crown makes it possible to avoid this type of situation.

Why devitalize a tooth?

In most cases, a tooth is devitalized when a cavity has not been treated for a long time and has become deep . It first attacks the tooth enamel and then spreads to the pulp. At this point, if left unchecked, the infection can spread to the bloodstream and cause much more serious health problems.

Devitalizing a tooth may also be necessary in the event of significant trauma such as a fall or a set of mini-shocks . These traumas cause a root fracture or inflammation of the pulp, which increases the risk of bacterial infection. The tooth must therefore be devitalized as quickly as possible.

Devitalize a tooth: the price

The price of devitalization depends on the tooth concerned:

for devitalization of a molar , it is necessary to envisage approximately 80 €

for the devitalization of a canine or an incisor , it is necessary to envisage approximately 30 €

for the d avoidance of a premolar , it is necessary to envisage approximately 50 €

If the dentist recommends the fitting of a crown, it is necessary to envisage approximately 650 € more. In some exceptional cases, we can call on a specialist ( endodontist ), but then we must be well informed because the latter will exceed the fees.

In short, devitalization is a dental treatment that makes it possible to limit the appearance of an infection or to reduce the damage of a trauma. The devitalization of a molar is the most expensive procedure for this type of care.
