What are Veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic dental solution which entails ultra-thin shells of porcelain being applied to the front side of the teeth in order to improve the appearance of discoloured, skew or worn teeth. Strong adhesive materials are used to bond the porcelain to the enamel of the teeth leaving the veneer as if it is one with the tooth in almost all aspects. This refers to both the aesthetic appearance and stain resistance of the veneer.
The procedure may or may not involve trimming of existing teeth. An impression is taken and provisional veneers are fitted. The permanent veneers are prepared in a laboratory by a dental technician. The provisional veneer is then removed, and the veneer is bonded to the tooth using sophisticated adhesive technologies.
Should I do it?
Veneers are a solution to straight, white teeth without the need for braces or crowns. If you are a suitable candidate, then veneers can be tantamount to instant orthodontics. Your teeth can be made to look how you have always wanted with the guidance of professional care by your dentist. Why should one hesitate to grasp at an opportunity for that perfect, natural smile, consult with your dentist.
