At Smile Hub porcelain veneers are made from porcelain ceramics, but the overall type will depend on their porcelain make-up and how they are prepared. In essence there are two kinds of porcelain veneers; feldspathic porcelain veneers and pressed porcelain veneers.
The difference with pressed ceramic veneers like Emax Veneers is that they are first cast in wax and fashioned to match the contours and shade of a patient’s tooth structure. Patients are involved in the design of the veneers before the final set of Emax Veneers is produced, to ensure that they are completely happy with their new smile.
Feldspathic porcelain veneers, in contrast, are constructed using ceramic porcelain layers, which are then cured at high-powered temperatures. Due to the layering effect these veneers are usually thicker than Emax Veneers and are not as strong or durable as pressed ceramic veneers.
Feldspathic porcelain veneers require some prior tooth preparation to help the veneer and tooth bond. Feldspathic porcelain veneers like Mac Veneers and Emax Veneers produce smile enhancing results where patients are proud to show off their white teeth.
