Seeking to fix your dental concerns and make your smile look better? Consider dental veneers to cover up dental deformations and enhance your smile.
Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells made of either composite material or porcelain that is bonded to the teeth. They cover the teeth's front surface and conceal crooked teeth alignment, stains, discoloration, chipped or worn-out teeth, and excessive spaces between teeth.
Types of Dental Veneers
There are two types of dental veneers - porcelain and composite resin veneers. Both of them have their advantages and can be customized to suit the color, shape, and structure of the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are durable, stain-resistant options that need scraping off of very little enamel for bonding them. Once they are attached, you will have sparkling white teeth without affecting their stability.
Composite resin veneers are comparatively more affordable than porcelain veneers and are easily replaceable when needed.
Why are Veneers used in Dentistry?
Deformations on teeth like chips, stains, uneven gaps, etc., can affect the aesthetics of one's smile. Dental veneers are a less invasive option than braces or crowns to fix these issues and correct crooked teeth. Veneers also correct teeth discoloration and enhance the brightness of the teeth.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
- Veneers cosmetically repair teeth simply and easily when cemented to the front of teeth.
- Veneers don't stain easily.
- Dental veneers offer a natural appearance - they can be made to match the color and contour of the natural tooth.
- Attaching dental veneers is a minimally invasive procedure and requires little or no anesthesia.
- Veneers are a quick cosmetic fix to address chipped, misshapen, stained, and discolored teeth.
- Veneers resist decay, and they are permanent and durable.
- Maintaining dental veneers is easy and requires the same care as for natural teeth.
- Porcelain veneers can remove stains and act as a permanent tooth whitening option as they are stain-resistant.
- Veneers are a feasible remedy for enamel loss.
How are Veneers Attached?
During the initial consultation with our dentist, we will assess your teeth and overall dental health to determine if dental veneers are your right treatment choice. After determining the type of veneer to be attached, we will prepare your teeth by reshaping them to accommodate the veneers.
After this, an impression of your teeth will be obtained and sent to a dental lab for manufacturing the veneers. Since it may need a few weeks for the veneers to get ready, the patient will be given temporary veneers in the meantime.
Once veneers are ready, our dentist will attach them to your teeth after examining their color and fit. Then, any excess material is removed, and the veneer is permanently bonded.
