Many people are dissatisfied with the way their teeth look. In such cases, dental veneers offer a quick way to help people get better-looking teeth without any hassle. Dental veneers or porcelain veneers help in improving the size, color, and shape of the teeth. The porcelain veneers are tooth-colored and blend in with your teeth, making them look natural. They also improve the strength and resilience of your teeth and make them more resistant to stains.
Do you need a porcelain veneer?
Teeth can get stained or discolored over time due to many different reasons. Porcelain veneers fight the damage to give your teeth a better and healthier overall appearance. Teeth that are chipped, broken, misshapen, or riddled with gaps can all be improved easily. It is essential to consult your dentist in such cases so that you get a professional opinion before getting a veneer.
How does the procedure work?
Before the procedure, it is important to consult your dentist to discuss the entire process. The dentist may take an X-ray or even impressions of your teeth so that the veneers can be made accurately.
Following this, the dentist removes a minuscule portion of the tooth enamel so that the porcelain veneer can be easily fit in the patient’s mouth. The impression of your tooth is sent to the laboratory to fabricate a veneer. The tooth on which the veneer is to be placed is polished and cleaned well so that they can easily be applied to it. After that, the dentist applies a special cement to the veneer before fixing it onto the tooth. After attaching it to the tooth properly, the dentist uses a light beam to harden the cement, which makes the veneer fasten permanently onto the tooth. The dentist trims off the excess and makes sure that the veneer blends in well with the tooth. After this, you may have a few follow-up appointments with the dentist to ensure that the veneer is working perfectly.
