How Do I Get Dental Veneers?
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are tiny pieces of porcelain that are custom-designed and shaped to fit over the enamel on the outside of your teeth. Once they are in place, they can create a more uniform size and shape for your smile. Veneers can also be created in whatever shade you choose, making them an ideal solution for teeth that have become stained or discolored, particularly when whitening treatments have failed to lighten teeth to the patient’s satisfaction.
How are veneers applied?
As veneers are applied to the enamel on the outside of the teeth, a little preparation work is required in order to give them a suitable surface to bond to. Patients are given a local anesthetic and then the outer enamel of your teeth is filed down a little, so that the new veneers will sit snugly over the top. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth using a special dental adhesive that will ensure they stay securely in place.
The entire process usually takes less than two hours, and your smile transformation will be evident immediately.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
People choose veneers for many functional reasons as well as the cosmetic benefits that offer. Some of the key advantages of dental veneers include:
Veneers help to reinforce the existing enamel on the front of your teeth.
Veneers are bonded to your natural teeth using a permanent adhesive. While they can be removed if absolutely necessary, it is not recommended.
Porcelain veneers are very stain resistant to the tannins found in common foods and drinks such as coffee and red wine.
Hidden decay and damage
As veneers sit over the front of your natural teeth they can help to hide any decay or damage that is usually visible.
Veneers are usually designed to fit snugly next to one another, eliminating any unsightly gaps between your teeth.
Veneers can be created in any shade, meaning you can achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
