Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like, custom-made shells fabricated using tooth-colored materials. They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. After changing the shape, size, color, and length, we bond them to your front teeth. Their application looks exactly like your natural teeth.
You may opt for this procedure to restore your slightly chipped or cracked teeth. We may also recommend this procedure to cover the gap between your teeth or badly stained teeth to make them appear more pleasing.
What are the Types of Veneers?
They are the most popular veneer types that match the appearance of your remaining teeth. Porcelain veneers are made using dental-grade porcelain. We shape your teeth and then make an impression to create a mold. This mold is sent to the lab for the preparation of your veneers.
Composite Resin Veneers
We will etch the surface of your teeth before layering the composite material to the teeth prepared for veneers. We may also add multiple layers of composite resin until the desired look appears. The procedure is finished by curing and hardening the veneers with a special light.
No-prep veneers are a quick procedure and involve a less-invasive application. We do not remove the layer of your teeth under the enamel. The procedure doesn’t require temporary veneers or even a local anesthetic.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
- Dental veneers improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a brighter and shinier smile.
- They are easy to apply and maintain and cost-effective procedures over other approaches like dental crowns, bridges, etc.
- If taken care of properly, veneers may last for more than a decade.
- They are a suitable option for children, adults, and elderly patients.
How are Veneers Applied?
We will start with cleaning your teeth thoroughly to remove all the bacteria trapped under your teeth. We may also adjust the size and length of your teeth before placing the veneer. It may include filing the enamel a little bit so that the veneers fit perfectly to your teeth.
With the help of a dental device, we will create a rough texture on your teeth to apply the veneers. The texture, so created, makes it easy for the veneers to stick perfectly to your teeth. Using dental-grade cement, we will bond the veneers to your teeth. We may also use ultraviolet light to cement the veneers quickly to your teeth.
