We'll go through some of our patients' most frequently asked questions so you can decide whether this treatment is the appropriate fit for you.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are very-thin shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. Other procedures like bonding can fix the smaller portions of a tooth whereas veneers completely redesign the front surface.
Veneers can therefore significantly change the way your smile looks. They are frequently used to cover stains, whiten teeth, and enhance grins. Veneers can address a number of dental problems in addition to their aesthetic advantages, including:
- Worn or broken teeth
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- A significant gap or uneven gaps exist between the top front teeth.
Porcelain is a tough ceramic substance that resembles the dentin of your tooth almost exactly, making it a perfect choice for veneers.
Porcelain veneers provide a number of advantages, including:
- Sturdy and durable construction
- Natural-looking surface of the teeth
- Fewer dental crown procedures include the removal of tooth enamel
- Heightened stain resistance
How do veneers work?
Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the visible part of a tooth to improve its appearance. They are designed to look and feel like natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers require two appointments to complete. Here's what happens during each visit:
Local anesthesia is administered before removing a thin layer of enamel to create space for the veneer. A mold of the teeth is taken to customize the porcelain veneer. A temporary veneer is placed to protect the tooth. During the one to two weeks before the second appointment, the temporary veneer should be treated with care since it is fragile.
The temporary veneer is removed. A mild chemical is applied to the tooth to help attach the porcelain veneer to the enamel. The porcelain veneer is glued to the tooth using composite resin cement.
Although veneers are more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are less expensive than opting for crowns (and also conserve the natural tooth, as a bonus).
