Get Perfect, Affordable Porcelain Veneers in Bali
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain coverings (shells) which are bonded over the front (visible) part of the tooth replacing original tooth enamel to recreate the natural look of teeth, whilst providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, colour and/or contours. In U.S.A. veneers are referred to as ‘caps’ or ‘laminates’.
Coming to Bali for porcelain teeth veneers is a good choice if you have fractured teeth, minor twists, overlaps and small gaps between teeth. In some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems, veneers can be the perfect solution. With veneers, as opposed to crowns, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
Consultation for Porcelain Veneers in Bali
Making an appointment for your free consultation with one of our Bali dental clinic dentists and asking the right questions about porcelain veneers is the first step in determining if getting veneers in Bali is right for you, or if alternate solutions are available. This first step involves your active participation. Explain to your dentist the result that you want to achieve. Communication with your dentist about your wants is critical for a successful result. Spend time clearly identifying what cosmetic dentistry improvements you want to accomplish. If you see a smile you like, bring a picture or photo with you to discuss with some of the best dentists in Bali.
You’ll often hear people say that celebrities have veneers and this may seem like the best way to replicate picture-perfect teeth, but each mouth is different and porcelain veneers need to be carefully researched. Our dentist will evaluate your bite first before affordable veneers are considered for you. You may not be a suitable candidate for veneers if you have unhealthy teeth (for example, those with decay or active periodontal disease), weakened teeth (as a result of decay, fracture, large dental fillings), have an inadequate amount of existing enamel on the tooth surface, or suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching). Some people are completely unaware that they have developed teeth grinding habits. A free consultation with our dentist and a free digital panoramic x-ray will be able to determine if you are a likely candidate for veneers or not.
Why ARC Porcelain Veneers ?
ARC dental veneers are made from high-quality porcelain materials from Switzerland hand-crafted by our skilled German-trained technicians using advanced hands-on techniques. Since our porcelain veneers are individually sculpted for each patient in our in-house laboratory [LINK to LAB], it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between our customised veneer and your natural tooth. Our porcelain veneers reflects light like natural teeth. The semi-translucent appearance helps the veneers blend with your smile for natural results. They can be designed to match your natural adjacent teeth or can be remodeled to improve the aesthetics of your smile. The overall fit, appearance and colour of our customised veneers are carefully hand-worked with care and under the supervision of our German master technician.
ARC custom-made veneers resist coffee stain, tea stain and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-grade materials. For teeth that resist whitening, porcelain veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white. Porcelain veneers are long lasting, beautiful, and create a smile patients feel proud to share.
Our dentists are highly trained in providing stunning results using dental veneers. In most cases, no one will even know that you have veneers on your teeth. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can help you achieve that “Hollywood Smile”.
Potential Porcelain Veneer Downsides
Because a portion of the original tooth enamel is reduced, a veneer is not considered a reversible treatment. Once you remove enamel, it’s gone for good. You can never reliably return to the original condition of the tooth.
Although adjustments can be made, porcelain veneers cannot be repaired. Once chipped or broken, porcelain veneers need to be replaced.
What Is the Process of Getting Teeth Veneers in Bali?
The veneer procedure can typically be completed in just two visits to our Clinic and in-house laboratory. On your first visit, to prepare the teeth the dentist usually removes a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the teeth (usually less than a millimetre) to make room for the veneers and to most accurately restore your tooth’s natural function, while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth. The dentist then makes an impression or mold of the prepared teeth. Once this is complete, you and the dentist then collaborate with our laboratory artisans to decide the veneer shade that will be best for your smile.
Because we custom-make the porcelain veneers to best fit and suit your teeth at our Bali dental clinic, production of your veneers may take several days so expect at least a week before they are ready to be applied. The dentist may give you temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
On your next visit, the dentist places the veneers on your teeth to check the fit and shape. After any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers are bonded to the tooth. The bond between the original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical as it not only aims to yield the desired aesthetics, but also provides a strong adhesive bond, which is essential for correct veneer function.
What to Expect Post-Treatment
After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically disappears within a few weeks.
Maintenance of Porcelain Teeth Veneers
Maintaining porcelain veneers is actually quite simple: Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing using gentle brushing techniques and non-abrasive toothpaste.
Although veneers are very strong, they are also brittle. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with non-veneered teeth: don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open packaging and beer bottles with your veneers!
To protect and prolong the longevity and appearance of your veneers ARC Dental Clinic insists on the wearing of a night guard whilst you sleep. You are required to purchase and wear a night guard that our laboratory makes to custom-fit your mouth to validate our 3-year Limited Dental Warranty. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth (bruxism), we recommend that you own a second night guard as they only last an average of three months for bruxers.
You should also return to our dentist or your dentist in your own country for regular professional maintenance because porcelain veneers should be polished with a specially formulated, non-abrasive paste.
Porcelain vs. Composite Veneers . . . Similar, Yet Different
Although porcelain veneers cost significantly more than composite veneers, not only do they last longer, they generally produce more predictable and aesthetic looking results as compared to teeth laminates made with composite resin. Porcelain veneers have strong advantages in terms of durability and aesthetic qualities. Porcelain veneers offer the most natural, tooth-like aesthetics – the ultimate goals of a cosmetic dental treatment. And once they are bonded to your existing teeth, porcelain veneers hold tightly to your healthy tooth structure to create a solid restoration that can last for many years (between 10-15 years with proper care and regular dental check-ups) compared to composite veneers that only last up to seven years.
If you want your dental restoration to possess a life-like and natural quality, most dentists would recommend porcelain veneers over composite resin. That’s because the porcelain material has an uncanny ability to mimic natural teeth. It has a translucent quality that reacts to different lighting conditions in a similar way to tooth enamel. This unique characteristic gives porcelain veneers a sense of layered depth and shine that is not possible with composite veneers. Even when viewed at close proximity, porcelain veneers are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Apart from the veneer cost factor, perhaps the only disadvantage of porcelain veneers is that they cannot be repaired. Once chipped or broken, porcelain veneers need to be replaced. Whereas composite resin veneers can be repaired easily and quickly if they get damaged. It should be noted however that porcelain is a much stronger material than composite resin. While it may cost half as much to get composite veneers done as compared to porcelain veneers, they typically last half as long.
Both porcelain and composite resin can be colour-matched to blend with your natural teeth. However, composite resin is rather prone to staining while porcelain is highly stain-resistant. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost in Bali?
If you are looking for the most cost-effective solution, then a treatment plan using composite material will probably be a good fit for you. However, if you have a severe aesthetic concern, or you’re looking for the best, the most natural and most durable treatment solution, then our affordable porcelain veneers will give you a fantastic result.
The actual cost of veneers in Bali will vary from patient to patient however our solutions are generally substantially cheaper than any other comparable high quality dental clinic abroad.
At the end of the day, the only way to determine whether a composite or porcelain restoration is the right solution for you is to speak with some of the best dentists in Bali about your aesthetic goals and to weigh up your personal considerations and budget. In other words, what is most important to you?
