Dental Veneers Abroad
What are veneers abroad?
A veneer in our country is a thin layer made of porcelain designed to fit over the front surface of teeth, just like an artificial fingernail fits over a nail. Natural colour ‘composite’ material can also be used instead of porcelain.
How can I benefit from veneers?
Veneers can improve the shape, colour and position of your teeth. Our dentists chose precisely a shade of porcelain in order to give the proper colour to improve a single stained or discoloured tooth or to lighten the shade of front teeth (the upper ones in most of the cases). Dental veneer can make a chipped tooth look unharmed again. The veneer covers the front section of the tooth with replacing the broken part. Teeth veneers can also be used to cover small gaps, in case braces are not suitable.
How are teeth being prepared for teeth veneers?
A part of the outer enamel surface of the tooth may need to be removed, to make sure that the veneer can be permanently bonded in place. The amount of the outer enamel surface removed is very tiny and will be as thick as the veneer to be installed, so that the tooth remains the same size. Per patients preferences a local anaesthetic (injection) can be used to prevent from any discomfort, but usually this is not necessary. After the tooth has been prepared, the dentist takes an impressions (mould). It will be passed to the dental lab and used to perform a veneer. The colour is matched with the surrounding teeth on a shade guide in order to make sure that the teeth veneer will look natural.
How long does a dental veneers in Poland installation take?
It takes at least two visits to install a veneer: the first visit is to prepare the tooth match the shade, the second is to install it. Before bonding the veneer in place, our dentist will present it to you on your tooth to make sure you are happy with it. Bonding a veneer in place is done with a special adhesive, which make it hold firmly on the tooth.
Is a temporary veneer needed between visits?
No. As the preparation of the tooth is so small in most of the cases there is no need for a temporary veneer. The tooth itself will look pretty much the same after preparation, but it may feel slightly less smooth.
What happens after the veneer is installed?
After a teeth veneer is fitted only small adjustments can be made to it. It is advised to wait for a while to get used to it before any potential changes are made. Your dentist may want to check and polish the veneer a week or so after installation to make sure that you are happy with it. However, this is not necessary.
How long does a teeth veneer last?
Veneers last for many years. However, they can be chipped or broken, just as natural teeth can. Our dentist will instruct you on how long each individual veneer is expected to last. Minor chips can be fixed, or replaced with a new Veneer if necessary.
What are the alternatives to dental veneer?
When talking veneers our dentists very often recommend dental crowns instead as they are longer lasting and within the same price range. It will of course depend on your preferences. For small repairs to front teeth a natural-coloured filling material can be used. This may not work well in case of broken tooth corners but is a perfect solution where the tooth supports the filling.

Your teeth may require preparation before veneers can be placed. Root canal treatment or fillings may be needed. As far as time frame is concerned at the first stage of treatment we need 2-3 days to prepare teeth and take impressions for veneers. Then there is as time required by dental lab (around 5 working days) to perform the work.
The last stage is installing veneers which require one additional day. Having that said, there are in fact two options to consider:
Option 1: coming for one long visit 5-8 days
Option 2: split visits into two 2-3 days visit one and 1-2 days visit
