Dental Veneers
Dental veneers, also called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials placed over the front surface of teeth to improve tooth appearance. Veneers are ideal for teeth that are too small, too big, or have uneven surfaces. It is very common for people to have imperfect teeth, either oddly shaped teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, teeth with small holes in them, or an inappropriate sized tooth or teeth that have an odd appearance. Veneers solve such irregularities and create a durable and pleasing smile.

Benefits of Veneers
• Typically veneers are difficult to stain and durable
• Corrects the alignment of teeth “instant braces”
• Brightens your smile and improve self-esteem
• Has translucence and texture similar natural enamel
• Closes gaps between teeth
• Lengthens and reshape teeth
• Repairs chipped, broken, worn down or misshapen teeth
• Covers tretracycline stains and other discolorations such as fluorosis, prescence of large resin fillings
• Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
• Color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter
• Does not require extensive shaping that crowns do and is a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to bonding

Types of Veneers
IPS Empress Veneers
Our clinics uses IPS Empress II System and IPS Empress Esthetics from Ivoclar Vivadent for veneers. The opalescent IPS Empress II and Esthetic veneer layering materials imitates natural teeth.
Our bangkok dental center also uses Lumineers that are contact lens thin veneers placed over teeth surfaces in changing the color shades and for slight shape adjustments. In certain cases, Lumineers do not require tooth preparation and may be reversed.

Procedure for Dental Veneers Treatment
1. First evaluation and veneer tooth preparation
+ Local anesthesia is first administered at the region of veneer tooth preparation
+ The natural teeth adjacent to the missing gap is reshaped to receive the dental veneer
+ Records are taken and approved with the patient to determine the color, bite, length and shape of the veneer
+ An impression is taken for a replica model of the teeth
+ This model is sent to a lab where the individualized veneer is fabricated
+ A temporary veneer is placed on whilst the permanent veneer is made
2. Fitting of veneer on delivery
+ The temporary veneer is removed
+ The permanent veneer is fitted and cemented into place on the teeth
+ A quality assurance check is done for any re-adjustments or re-works of the dental veneer
3. Care of the veneer
+ Brush and floss the veneer as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist

Recovery Expectations
The gums may have some minor tenderness for a couple days after the procedure. Some individuals may experience sensitivity in teeth. This sensitivity will disappear gradually over a few days to weeks.

Postcare Instructions for Dental Veneers
1. Avoid chewing on or eating hard foods on the restorations for 24 hours from the time they were cemented
2. To help with discomfort or swelling rinse your mouth 3xd with warm salt water. (1tsp. of salt in 8oz of water)
3. Keep crown area clean to maintain tissue compatibility (the contour of the prosthesis must allow the surrounding tissue to conform to a natural, healthy position)
4. Some sensitivity in teeth may be experienced by certain patients. This sensitivity will disappear gradually over a few days to weeks. If teeth are sensitive:
+ Avoid hot, cold or acidic food and beverages
+ Pain medication be taken as directed as long as there is no medical contradiction based upon your medical history
+ Use fluoride rinse and toothpaste for sensitivity teeth
+ Clean teeth properly

Care for Dental Veneers
Dental veneers require the same regular and consistent home and professional dental care as your natural teeth.
1. Brush after eating and before bedtime around the crown with a soft toothbrush, especially where the veneer meets the gum line.
2. Floss at least once to twice a day. Use the proxy brush or floss threader to remove plaque under and around these areas to maintain good oral hygiene.
3. Rinse with fluoride rinse before bed. Swish the fluoride rinse vigorously in your mouth for at least one minute. Do not swallow any of the rinse and do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes
4. Be careful about chewing toffees, gum, grainy rolls and tough food in this area
5. See your dentist for regular professional check-ups and cleanings

  1. Hello,

    I am based in Phnom Penh and I’ve been wondering about a procedure for my teeth.

    One of my lower teeth has eroded at the top and is now on an angle/uneven. I was wondering if you have suggestions of how to treat this, and what the price range would be?

    I know it’s difficult to provide an exact price without me coming in personally, however I am constrained by both time and money, so I would really appreciate a straightforward answer regarding treatment options and cost, as this will help me decide which clinic I will prioritise going to.

    Secondly. I’ve considered for a long time shaping my top two front teeth so they are even with my other teeth. My two front teeth are longer than all the other teeth. Is it possible to file them down so they are more evenly sized? If this is possible, please tell me about the procedure and the cost.

    I would have attached a photo but it’s not possible, so if you provide me with an email address, I can send you a photo.

    Thank you kindly for your time and assistance.

    Kind regards,


    • Hi Jessica,
