What are porcelain veneers?
Our dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin (approx. 0,5 mm) translucent porcelain / ceramic facings made in our dental laboratory after an impression. These are then bonded permanently to your tooth's front surface using a special adhesive process. The porcelain veneer covers the visible surface of the tooth completely. The chemical bond between porcelain and enamel creates a translucent, tooth-shaded unit with perfectly natural aesthetics.
What advantages do ceramic veneers offer?
Natural looking results.
Our custom made porcelain veneers provide a very natural tooth appearance. They mimic the light reflecting properties of your natural teeth and the characteristics of tooth enamel incredibly well. They can be made very thin and translucent.
Matching to existing teeth.
The colour of the porcelain veneer can be chosen to match your natural teeth very closely or to create a whole new natural look to your smile. In most cases it is not necessary to veneer all your teeth as part of a Hollywood style makeover, unless that is what you want.
Results are quick and dramatic.
Correcting multiple flaws.
Our porcelain veneers will improve the shape, color and position, minimally, all at once. Therefore if you have a range of cosmetic flaws such as spaces, discoloration, staining, chipped or fractured teeth, these can all be dealt with at the same time. A combined approach using other treatments may be needed depending on the individual requirements of our clients.
A more conservative process.
Unlike full crowns, veneers require the removal of far less tooth structure thus giving the client a more conservative alternative. Because of this they are much less likely to affect the nerve inside the tooth than a porcelain crown. The whole process is far less intrusive and causes much less trauma and discomfort.
Veneers and other cosmetic treatment combinations.
Our porcelain veneers may be used in combination with other treatments such as crowns, bridges, dental implants, orthodontics, teeth whitening, even tooth bonding to achieve a complete smile makeover.
The porcelain of a veneer will blend exactly with the porcelain of crowns, implants and bridges if they are made at the same time (i.e. from the same mix of porcelain) to give a perfectly uniform color to your teeth. Assuming of course, that the tooth underneath isn’t so dark it influences the color.
At BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5, dental veneer Bangkok can be used to fix just a few teeth, all the teeth or to mix and match with other treatments to meet your cosmetic desires. For example, after whitening your teeth, you may find that it's only the gap between your front teeth that you wish to fix and just two veneers can give you a great outcome instead of bearing the expense and unnecessary inconvenience of having more extensive treatment. Our experts at Smile Republic are able to advise you of any combined treatment that you may wish to consider.

The BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 veneer process.
Basically our process is; diagnosis, treatment planning, preparation, and bonding. It is important to note that one tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process described below.
Diagnosis and treatment planning.
This first step involves active participation between you and our BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 cosmetic dentist. Explain to your dentist the result that you are trying to achieve. During this appointment your dentist will examine your teeth to make sure veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and what, if any, the limitations will be with the treatment. We also may take x-rays and possibly make impressions of your mouth and teeth.
To prepare a tooth for a veneer, your Smile Republic expert will remove about 0.5-1.0 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer that will be added to the tooth surface. Before trimming off the enamel, our expert will decide whether there is the need for a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, we will make a model or impression of your teeth. This model is sent to our state of the art in-house dental laboratory, which in turn constructs your veneer. It usually takes 5-7 days to complete this process. For very unsightly teeth, temporary veneers can be placed for no additional cost.
Before the veneer is permanently cemented to your tooth by our BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 expert we will temporarily place it on your tooth to examine its fit and color. We will repeatedly remove and trim the veneer as needed to achieve the proper fit, the veneer color can be adjusted with the shade of cement to be used. Next, to prepare your tooth to receive the veneer, your tooth will be cleaned and polished which roughens the tooth to allow for a strong bonding process. A special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth. Once properly positioned on the tooth, our expert will apply a special light beam to the veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement causing it to harden or cure very quickly. The final step involves removing any excess cement. Our BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 experts are very exacting, and so, will also evaluate your bite and make any final adjustments to the veneer as necessary.
Our Smile Makeover "INSTANT ORTHO PROGRAM"
At BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 we also offer an alternative to porcelain veneers. Resin veneers offer an extremely affordable ulterior option which will produce quick, durable and aesthetically pleasing results Resin veneers.
Resin veneers are essentially a reinforced plastic option, which is used in the same way as porcelain and is more affordable.
Disadvantages of resin veneers.
At BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 we have embraced the advances in technology within cosmetic dentistry and composite resin veneers have improved immeasurably. Resin veneers are now extremely durable and resistant to the effects of modern day life. However, resin veneers are more susceptible to chips thus, it may be necessary for the veneers to undergo repair work. Composite resin veneers are also very slightly porous and so can be vulnerable to staining if thorough cleaning and flossing is not undertaken regularly. It may also be the case that, depending on your lifestyle, resin veneers may not last as long as porcelain, so repair or replacement work may become necessary sooner than it would with porcelain veneers.
Are there advantages to resin veneers?
How do I decide which is the better choice for me?
Don’t worry. Our experts at BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 will discuss and advise you on the choices available on a case by case basis leaving you to make an independent and informed choice. Whichever process you decide upon our Smile Republic experts will deliver a professional and conscientious service creating a result of which we will be proud, and with which you will be delighted.
Am I good candidate for dental veneers?
Dental veneers are not appropriate for everyone or every tooth. At BANGKOK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC @ Sukhumvit 5 we believe case selection is an extremely important factor in the success of this technique. Veneering teeth is not a reversible procedure if tooth structure must be removed to achieve your desired result.
Only an examination by one of our experts can determine whether veneers are appropriate for making the changes you desire. After an initial examination our expert will give you a thorough and honest appraisal of the options that are available to you. Some of the situations where certain teeth or people are not good candidates for veneers include:
- Unhealthy teeth. Dental decay and active gum disease must be treated prior to fabricating and bonding veneers.
- Weakened teeth. If a significant amount of tooth structure is missing or has been replaced by a large filling the teeth will not be strong enough to function with a veneer.
- Teeth with an inadequate amount of enamel present. Dental veneers are more successfully bonded onto tooth enamel.
- People who habitually clench or grind on their teeth. Habitual clenching and grinding of the teeth can easily chip or break veneers. Dental night guards may be a solution for this in some cases. treatmentPersons without a stable bite.
- Severely malpositioned or misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment may be required to achieve the desired result.
