What Are the Differences Between Traditional and MAC Veneers
People who have discolored or worn-looking teeth, cracked teeth that have gaps and chips, or teeth that are misshapen and disfigured will find the perfect solution to their imperfect smiles with veneers. Veneers are made of thinly manufactured slices of porcelain which are customized to fit over the front portion of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are impervious to stains and are translucent enough to reflect light and make a person’s smile as bright and natural as real teeth.
Most people who need work done on their teeth normally opt to have veneers with their chosen size, color and shape to alter their smiles for the better. They schedule a visit with their dentist and discuss what area of their teeth they would like to improve, and to discuss their options for the repair and rehabilitation of their smiles. The solution of choice more often than not, are porcelain veneers.
A cosmetic dentist is the best person to go to for a person to be fitted with porcelain veneers. An impression of the teeth will be made and be sent to a dental laboratory for work based on the patient’s specifications of size, shape and color.
One of the top rate dental laboratories used by a majority of cosmetic dentists are manufactureres of MAC veneers. MAC veneers are more superior to traditional veneers in that they are made from pressed ceramic. They are produced by MicroDental, a dental laboratory whose top cosmetic technicians fabricate them for one of the company’s divisions, Micro Advanced Cosmetic Division, hence the name MAC veneers.
MAC veneers are recommended by cosmetic dentists for their exceptionally appealing and first rate appearance. More and more cosmetic dentists choose to forward their patients’ teeth impressions to MicroDental’s MAC veneers division for excellent cosmetic dental work that are made to last, as well as with aesthetic considerations in mind.
These custom-made veneers are first presented in a wax model based on the patient’s teeth impression. With the wax model and some digital imaging, the cosmetic dentist will explain how everything will come together. This will give the patient an idea of how the finished veneers will look on their mouth. Once the wax model has been approved, it will be sent to MicroDental’s Mircro Advanced Cosmetic Division for the final version of the patient’s MAC veneers.
Compared with traditional porcelain veneers, MAC veneers are stronger and thicker as MicroDental’s cosmetic experts work very well with pressed ceramic. While traditional porcelain veneers are a better option compared to crowns and jackets, they are only made of very thin porcelain. MAC veneers, on the other hand, while thicker, fit more tightly and securely over the teeth. Because they are sturdier, they are longer-lasting and not easily dislodged, knocked askew, or bound to fall off by accident.
MAC veneers are made from choice materials, just as an artist chooses the best colors to create beautiful paintings. With their staying power, they are able to hide stains and discolorations, chips and misalignment, and other dental imperfections for a considerably longer period of time. In fact, most cosmetic dentists recommend using MAC veneers for their patients more often than they recommend traditional porcelain veneers.
