Dental veneers may be a viable option for achieving the desired appearance. They’re a popular option for people who have crooked teeth or a gap between their natural teeth. Dental veneers can also help discoloured teeth that cleaning and bleaching haven’t been able to restore. Porcelain laminates that are bonded to the teeth and are ultra-thin and custom-made and also can also be made of composite materials. Dental veneers have the ability to close gaps, improve the shape, and change the colour of teeth.
Why Dental Veneers?
When your teeth are stained or discoloured, and bleaching isn’t an option, dental veneers are the perfect option.
When a tooth is worn down, dental veneers are the best option for restoration.
In cases where there are uneven spaces or a large gap between the upper front teeth, dental veneers can help to improve the appearance of the teeth.
Dental Veneers Step-by-Step
1. The first step is to determine whether or not dental veneers treatment is appropriate for you. Tell our dentist what kind of outcome you’re hoping for. During the consultation, we’ll examine your teeth to see if dental veneers are a good fit for you, as well as go over the procedures and their limitations. The X-ray may be used by the dentist to assess the tooth’s condition.
2. Our dental specialist will only remove as much as is necessary to place the dental veneers during the procedure. This is nearly the same as the thickness of the dental veneers that will be applied to the tooth surface.
3. We will take an impression of your tooth, which will be sent to a laboratory to be custom-made dental veneers. The final veneer could take up to two weeks to install. Temporary dental veneers are usually placed first.
4. The dentist will temporarily place the permanent dental veneers on your tooth to check its fit and colour before cementing it. To achieve the proper fit, the dental veneers will be removed and trimmed several times. The colour of the veneer shade can be matched to the cement colour that will be used.
5. The dental veneers are then cemented in place and placed on the tooth.
*It’s advisable that you’ll need a few visits in the next two or three weeks to see how your gums are reacting to the dental veneers.
