Dental veneers are an easy way to improve your smile and give yourself a little confidence boost. The best part? They look just like your natural teeth and only require a very brief procedure.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin coverings that are made to fit your tooth. The procedure is typically very quick and painless.
The dentist will first take impressions that will be used to make the temporary veneer. They will then remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of the tooth. The temporary veneer will be made and placed over the tooth.
A custom shade will be chosen to ensure that the permanent veneer matches the rest of the teeth. Your impressions will be sent out to an outside lab, where your permanent veneer will be fabricated. You will be asked to return in a week or two, when your veneer will be permanently cemented and your dentist will ensure that your bite is correct. You will then be free to leave with your beautiful new tooth.
1. Confidence Boost
Many people find a sense of embarrassment from the look of their smile. Veneers provide the ability to completely customize and alter the shape, size, color, and length of the teeth.
If you find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile, veneers are likely an excellent option for you.
2. Long-Term Solution
If you’re looking for a long-term solution for issues such as discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, or gaps in the smile line, porcelain veneers are for you.
With proper home care and regular visits to the dentist, your veneers could last anywhere between 15-20 years.
3. Adds Strength and Durability to the Tooth
When the protective layer of enamel is damaged, the tooth becomes much more vulnerable to damage or decay.
Once enamel has been lost, it can not be replaced. Porcelain veneers are a great way to solve this problem, as they act as an additional protective layer for the tooth. In turn, this helps ensure that the tooth is protected against decay.
4. Improves Smile Alignment
Since veneers can be used to reshape and resize the teeth, minor alignment issues can easily be corrected.
Veneers can help with minor alignment issues without subjecting the patient to uncomfortable and lengthy orthodontic treatment.
5. Natural Appearance
For many patients, the best aspect of veneer treatment is that they look incredibly natural and blend right in with the rest of the natural teeth.
