Dental veneers are a sought-after cosmetic dental treatment that creates a pleasant smile and improves your aesthetic appearance. They are considered the gold standard in cosmetic dentistry, and many people are opting for this treatment to fix their several dental concerns. Veneers are wafer-thin shells made of dental-grade materials that are attached to the front surface of your teeth. Their application is hassle-free, and the results are long-lasting.
Who Would Need Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers solve many cosmetic concerns at once. Whether you are suffering from chipped, cracked, or broken teeth or have unevenly sized teeth, veneers can solve your problem. Other cases where you may opt for this treatment include slight crowding of teeth, gaps and spacing between teeth, worn-down teeth, and intrinsic tooth discoloration.
What Are the Types of Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are the most popular choice of veneers that last long and match the exact color of your teeth. Their appearance is translucent. These veneers are durable and long-lasting, and when taken care of properly, they may last for 10 to 15 years. Also, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant.
Composite veneers are an affordable option to consider if you want to make a cosmetic alteration to your front teeth. Many people use them as an alternative to porcelain veneers. However, they are comparatively less strong when compared to porcelain veneers.
It is a solution if you want veneers, but not permanently. They are made by taking the impressions of your teeth to fit snugly.
What Are the Benefits of Veneers?
- Dental veneers solve multiple cosmetic dental concerns at once. Thus, you may opt for this treatment and expect the best results.
- Veneers are a long-lasting solution to your perfect smile.
- Dental veneers can also replace damaged enamel, thus keeping your teeth healthy.
How Are Veneers Applied?
We will examine your mouth, take intraoral photographs and X-rays to determine if you are suitable for the procedure. After giving you a local anesthetic, your teeth will be prepared for the application of veneers by removing a small amount of enamel. This process creates enough room for the veneers to fit perfectly.
The impressions of your teeth will be taken to send to the dental lab for the creation of veneers. In the meantime, we will offer temporary veneers to protect your filed teeth. Once your permanent veneers are ready, we will attach them in place with a dental adhesive.
