What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural tooth enamel, so they look completely natural.
Veneers can correct various cosmetic flaws, such as chipped, cracked, misaligned, and discolored teeth. If you have healthy teeth and gums and want to improve the appearance of your smile, you may be a good candidate for this cosmetic dental procedure. But if you have any underlying dental issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, they must be addressed before you can get veneers.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Composite Resin Veneers
There are two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin. Porcelain veneers are more expensive but are more durable and stain-resistant than composite veneers.
Porcelain veneers require two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, your teeth will be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of each tooth. This allows room for the veneer to fit properly. Impressions of your prepared teeth will then be taken and sent to a lab where the custom veneers will be made. In the meantime, you may be given a temporary veneer to wear.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, they will be bonded to your teeth on the second visit using a special adhesive. Our dentist may also make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
Composite resin veneers are less expensive and can be applied in one visit. They are also less invasive than porcelain veneers, so they may be a good option if you don’t want to alter your natural teeth too much.
During the procedure, our dentist will first prepare your teeth by roughening the surface and applying a special bonding agent. The composite resin material is then applied to your teeth and shaped to match the desired look. Finally, it is hardened with a special light and polished for a natural-looking finish.
Keeping Your Veneers In Good Condition
- Maintain good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing your teeth regularly.
- Avoid using abrasive toothpaste or whitening products.
- Wear a mouthguard when playing sports or other activities that could damage your veneers.
- Visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
