Veneers are filmy shells of porcelain used to cover the outer surface of your teeth to enhance its cosmetic appearance. These particular shells not only offer an improved appearance but are also robust and can achieve desirable results within a very short period. They can be used to modify your teeth’s thickness, length width or even color. The veneers are normally used for the following conditions:
Teeth whitening can make you achieve your ideal smile and also eliminate persistent stains on the surface of your teeth. However, deep-rooted stains or stains caused by certain medications or genetics may be quite difficult to treat with regular whitening techniques. In such situations, porcelain veneers can provide a brighter and uniform smile. Not only shall they get rid of current discolorations, but also offer resistance to stubborn tooth stains and help patients avoid similar issues in the future.
Gaps or chipped teeth
Teeth flaws may lead to discomfort and dissatisfaction with one’s appearance. In a situation where the chips are trivial, a dentist may simply smooth out the defect to provide a flawless look. In serious cases, or when a patient has teeth gaps, greater actions may be needed. With porcelain veneers, the ultra-thin shells can be placed on the surface of the chipped teeth and can be designed in such a way that no space exists between them.
For most of the conditions mentioned above, other treatment options may be time-consuming to patients. Such methods are not only inconvenient, but the contentment of immediate results is just not an option for some patients. Nonetheless, veneer application can be completed in at most two appointments.
The dentist first removes a thin layer of enamel from the surface of your teeth in order to take an impression. The impression captured is then sent over to a lab that designs the veneers. This process normally takes 1 or 2 weeks. When it’s back from the lab, the veneers are then adjusted to make sure they fit well on your teeth before they are permanently attached. The whole process usually requires 2-3 visits.
