Teeth whitening lenses

Teeth whitening lenses are techniques that help get rid of any staining spots that appear on the tooth surface or gaps that may result from extracting or losing one of them, in addition to their ability to hide any crookedness or lack of symmetry in shape and size between them. These lenses are made of various raw aesthetic materials such as porcelain, emax and many others, and they are also available in different color shades to suit all patients, and it is possible that a number of veneers are installed based on the number of damaged teeth. The recent development in dentistry occasionally discovers other materials that can be used after proving their efficiency and quality in giving the desired functional and aesthetic results to the teeth. We will talk well about these materials and their properties in the next title in the article. Beauty that reflects the splendor of precision and dedication: Cosmetic teeth whitening lenses in our dental center skillfully combines them.

Types of teeth whitening lenses

There are types of teeth whitening lenses that help get rid of their flaws and deformities. These types provide an opportunity for the doctor and patient to choose what suits the dental health condition or damage to the teeth. These types can be mentioned in the following points:

  • Veneers: These are fixed lenses installed by the doctor in the clinic and cannot be removed by the patient or even the doctor unless they are damaged, scratched or cracked. This removal process does not occur easily in this case, but requires some techniques and chemicals that help the doctor do that.

The purpose of installing these lenses is to improve the smile and overall appearance of the teeth after removing part of the enamel layer covering them for good fixation, which is a painless procedure that does not require the patient to be sedated, which makes them easy to apply.

  • Lumineers: These are ceramic lenses made of porcelain, emax or ceramic as with veneers. They are similar veneers in all properties and method of installation except for thickness. The difference in thickness between veneers and lumineers makes the cooling step the only difference between them during application. These lenses give the teeth an attractive, smooth appearance.

Both types are characterized by strength and rigidity that help them withstand pressure and changes occurring in the patient’s mouth, which allows them to remain in the patient’s mouth cavity for many years, up to more than 10 years. The thickness of veneers does not exceed 0.5 mm, unlike lumineers which are thinner, with a thickness up to 0.2 mm. This difference is the reason that veneers require the removal of part of the enamel layer covering the teeth, while lumineers do not need that. Therefore, lumineers are the most preferred by most patients and doctors because of their increased safety and preservation of the tooth structure strong.

How long do dental lenses last?

Dental lenses are strong, rigid, and withstand many pressures and changes occurring in the oral cavity resulting from exposure to various foods, drinks, and friction between teeth when speaking. This is due to relying on sturdy ceramic raw materials that allow them to last for years up to 20 years or more if cared for properly by brushing them daily and using all special cleaning products for them.

Which is better, crowns or lenses?

Tooth veneers of both veneer and lumineer types are cosmetic techniques that help hide flaws and deformities of teeth, while crowns, which are usually caps, as well as bridges, their main role is to support the teeth, give them strength and rigidity in order to perform their various functional tasks while speaking or eating food, and protect dental fillings in their cavities, in addition to beautifying them and improving their appearance, which clarifies their therapeutic and aesthetic role in treating and repairing tooth defects.

Other points that clarify the difference between them is that lenses cover the anterior surface of the teeth, unlike crowns that cover the entire tooth structure. The thing they have in common is their ability to restore teeth and give them their attractive smile and improve their overall appearance. The doctor determines the appropriate method for the patient between them, as medical examinations and x-rays show how to treat the condition and the appropriate technique for its health status.
