Veneers are one of the best ways to immediately get the perfect smile you desire. The next time you see a celebrity with a perfect smile you want, just remember that person likely has veneers. Veneers can correct many dental issues. Some of these include:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps in your smile
- Poorly-aligned teeth
- Poorly-shaped teeth
- Stained teeth
- Visible tooth fractures
- Worn-down teeth
- Uneven teeth
Veneers do not just improve the appearance of teeth, these devices also help people regain proper function of their teeth. That functionality, in turn, makes it easier for people to chew and speak.
Veneers are thin shells that have the same thickness as contact lenses but typically consist of strong materials like porcelain and ceramics. Veneers are highly resistant to chips and breaks. This resistance helps to strengthen the natural teeth underneath them.
Veneers can last up to 15 years with proper maintenance. Taking care of these devices is no different than taking care of the natural teeth. Brush twice daily, floss at least once a day and the veneers will last over a decade.
The versatility of veneers makes it possible to treat multiple dental issues at the same time. That means you end up with perfect-looking teeth as soon as the procedure is complete.
5. Improves appearance
Veneers instantly transform the way an individual's teeth look. That change in appearance makes you appear more attractive and younger. Veneers will even help people remove a few wrinkles around their mouth.
How does the installation process for veneers work?
During an appointment, we will take an impression of the teeth and use it to create a mold. This mold helps give the patient and the dentist a clearer picture of how the veneers will look in the patient's mouth after installation. The dentist will then send the dimensions to a lab where they customize the veneers for the patient. It usually takes a couple of weeks for the veneers to be ready.
Once the veneers are ready, the dentist and his/her patient will go over the veneers to ensure the color, shape and size is up to par. The dentist will then prepare the teeth where the veneers will go. This process usually includes removing a small portion of enamel to make space for the veneers. The proper amount of space ensures that the veneers do not appear bulky in the patient's mouth.
Finally, the dentist will apply the veneers to the teeth, then adjust and shape the devices to ensure everything looks natural in the patient's mouth. Once that is out of the way, the dentist will harden the dental cement with an ultraviolet light and permanently bond the veneers to the patient's teeth. Want to learn more about veneers?
