Stone Cladding / Stone Veneer can be used on the exterior of your home as well as the interior. Stone Cladding / Stone Veneer can be used on certain walls in your home, for flooring, to enhance your exterior walls, fireplace, windows and doors. These materials are becoming more and more popular because of the fact that they are much lighter than regular stone and they have a natural look to them.

The main advantages of using Stone Veneer / Cladding are:
• Natural stone is very heavy and can be tricky to transport and install. Stone Veneer / Cladding is much lighter and easier to install.

• It is compatible with almost all surface materials like wood, brick, metal and cement. This means that a person can easily decorate the surfaces without any complications.

• The cost of Stone Veneer / Cladding is much less than natural stone. Since natural stone is much heavier, it increases the cost of the shipping, which then increases the overall cost.

• It is a flexible material, which makes it easy to install, even in places where there are curves. A vacuum table and clamps are used to install the veneer / cladding with ease. Natural Stone has not got this flexibility.

• It is easy to cut into the desired size and shape, which is not the case with natural stone.

• This man-made stone is available in a variety of sizes and shapes. The color of these stones can be matched to any color that you desire. It is also possible to have each stone made in a slightly different color, which makes the overall appearance look more natural.

• It is heat-resistant which means that it can be used in any place where there will be excessive heat generated, like … Read the rest

One of the most popular cosmetic dental works available is veneer. Dental veneer is a layer of tooth-colored material attached to and covering surface of a tooth structure. Among the many purposes of veneer are to cover visible spaces in between teeth (diastemas), repair minor imperfections like chipped or slightly crooked tooth, straighten and lengthen teeth, and treat discolored fillings or conceal stained teeth. For some, veneers are also their last resort to whiten their teeth and improve its appearance. Veneers are permanent, custom-shaped, stain proof, natural in appearance, and highly resilient and maybe these are the reasons why even several television shows like reality programs and talk shows promote this dental solution.

There are two types of dental veneers. The first is the more common type called porcelain veneer. Coming for the name itself, porcelain veneer is made of pure porcelain and it tend to last for about 10 to 15 years although porcelain is inherently brittle because once it is bonded in tooth surface, the tooth becomes strong and durable. It is also known as dental porcelain laminates. This type of veneer resists stain and mimics the light reflecting properties of teeth better compared to other type of veneer.

The second type is resin composite veneer. It is made up of two different types of material and generally, the cost to get composite veneers is cheaper because it can be fabricated inside your mouth and does not require complex manufacturing process.

Both types of veneers require your teeth to be prepared before the procedure. The preparation part is the shaping of teeth by removing some of the natural part of it to create space before bonding the material. This will cause you to lose the natural enamel or the protective layer of teeth. If ever you have to … Read the rest

If you dream of having a perfect smile, but the thought of having veneers applied to your teeth makes you wince in pain, you’ll be happy to know there is a new, pain-free alternative to help you get a fantastic looking smile. Lumineers are porcelain coverings, made from a patented type of porcelain known as Cerinate, applied directly to your teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, your dentist can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving. They can be applied without the use of anesthesia, so no shots are required.

Porcelain veneers, also known as “dental porcelain laminates,” are wafer-thin shells that bond to teeth. Most traditional veneers require that your dentist grind down sensitive tooth structure for a good fit. They are permanent, custom-shaped

and require the removal of roughly .5 mm of the original tooth to allow space for the new veneer.

Lumineers laminates are thinner (.2mm); roughly the thickness of a contact-lens. The original tooth structure needn’t be shaped for placement and, if desired, Lumineers can be removed. It is claimed that Lumineers resist micro-leakage and micro-cracking more so than traditional porcelain veneers. Unlike other porcelain veneers, you won’t need to wear temporary veneers until the Lumineers are created. Lumineers are expected to last just as long as traditional porcelain veneers and normally cost less than traditional dental laminates.

In addition to being made of thin, porous porcelain, both products offer permanent whitening with no staining or discoloration. Both Lumineers and traditional porcelain laminates can strengthen, lengthen and shape your teeth. They can be used to repair minor tooth imperfections, are stain proof, natural in appearance, and highly resilient. This procedure does not hurt, it is fast, and in most cases, affordable.

Lumineers can be a more comfortable and time-saving solution for adults … Read the rest

A Dental veneer may also be known as a porcelain veneer or a porcelain laminate is a custom-made shell that is typically bonded to the front of the tooth surface to improve the appearance. It is usually made of thin porcelain or polymers and covers the tooth in order to change the color, size or shape of the tooth. In addition to changing the appearance, it can also be used to protect the surface of the tooth that has been damaged.

A porcelain dental veneer is more stain-resistant, and is also much closer in appearance to natural teeth than those made from resins, which are typically thinner and require less work before placement. Your dentist will help you to determine the best type of veneer for your situation.

• Where the tooth surface has become worn or discolored
• Teeth with a large amount of filling may become unsightly and can be covered with a porcelain veneer.

• Gaps in between teeth or teeth that are misaligned can be filled with veneers.

The procedure may also involve taking X-rays of the teeth, along with dental impressions of both your lower and upper jaw. In order to prepare for the veneer, a small amount of enamel … Read the rest
