MAC Veneers For a Beautiful Smile

Wafer-thin porcelain veneers are one of cosmetic dentistry’s more recent inventions. The veneers are bonded onto the front of existing teeth with composite resin to restore the appearance of cracked, chipped or badly discoloured teeth. They are rapidly becoming one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments with  dentists because of the stunning results they produce and the incredible speed and minimal fuss of treatment.

Most people don’t think twice about the veneers they receive from their dentist; but, they should. All veneers are not created equal. Different brands vary in realism, strength, stain resistance, and length of life. It is important to work closely with laboratory technicians to create a beautiful smile that is custom tailored to you. MAC Veneers, Lumineers and other brands of porcelain veneers are different types of porcelain veneers that are designed to correct many different cosmetic problems that you may have with your smile.

They differ in how they appear on your teeth, and how they are created. MAC Veneers are created out of pressed ceramic porcelain, which MAC Veneers claims is stronger than any other type of porcelain. As a result MAC veneers are claimed to last longer and look more lifelike than any other porcelain veneer.Lumineers, on the other hand, are porcelain veneers created by Cerinate. Cerinate claims that Lumineers are strong enough so that they can be constructed to be as thin as a contact lens. They claim that Lumineers can be placed without anesthesia and without shaving any tooth material away.

MAC veneers offer the best combination of beauty, function and longevity.

* Beauty – MAC Veneers are created by artisans who understand and appreciate the nuances in color, luminosity and shape of natural teeth. Using up to 16 shades of white (while others use only four), MAC Veneers provide a unique level of natural beauty.
* Advanced Materials – MAC Veneers are made with high quality, pressed ceramics the latest, most advanced material available for cosmetic dentistry. In addition to enhancing the color and brightness of your smile, they can straighten and reshape your teeth to give them a more youthful appearance.
* Longevity – At least two times stronger than other veneer brands made with thinner, feldspathic ceramics. Because MAC Veneers are more durable, your new smile can last for years without cracking, chipping or changing color

With MAC Veneers and other porcelain veneers, in order ensure there is a seamless, natural feel and appearance, a small amount of tooth material must be removed. Lumineers claims this is not needed with their porcelain veneers.

All porcelain veneers are created to be placed over the front sides of your teeth in order to correct numerous aesthetic problems, including:

* Crooked Teeth
* Broken Teeth
* Stained Teeth
* Discolored Teeth
* Chipped Teeth
* Spaces Between Teeth
* Misshaped Teeth
* Disfigured Teeth
* Worn Teeth

The manufacture of porcelain veneers has been dramatically affected by the introduction of new technology. In the past, porcelain veneers needed to be measured using a system of dental moulds and x-rays. These were time-consuming processes, as was the laboratory conditions needed for their manufacture. Today, by using the latest in 3D imaging and digital x-rays, a dentist can use a computer to design and manufacture a porcelain veneer in as little as six minutes. This has significantly reduced treatment times and discomfort for patients.

It is now possible for dentists to design, manufacture and fit a whole dental arc of porcelain veneers in an afternoon. You could have a completely new and youthful set of teeth in just one day. Ask your dentist about the latest in porcelain veneer technology.

  1. I think the main advantage of these ultra-thin veneers is that minimal tooth preparation is required. In other words, very little – if any – of your natural tooth structure needs to be removed through shaving or grinding prior to bonding the Lumineers over your natural teeth.
