Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom made to fit over unattractive teeth, providing a much improved look. Veneers can be used to fix any of the following problems in teeth:
- Chipped teeth
- Badly stained teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Unattractive smile
- Abnormally spaced teeth (the veneers can close the gaps)
Why Dental Veneers?
The purpose of placing veneers is to create a durable and pleasing smile. It is also worth considering that veneers are very difficult to stain, making them popular for people seeking a perfect smile that can last a lifetime with proper care.
However, if you are considering placing veneers then you should take the following in to consideration.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
For people who have spent years eating and drinking dark substances such as coffee, red wine, smoking cigarettes or eating highly pigmented foods, all these things eventually take their toll on your natural teeth, turning them a darker shade of yellow or brown.
Of course, teeth whitening products have been around for a long time so that stained enamel can be bleached. This can be done either at home or at the dentist office, but they can still become stained again after a short period.
If you’re looking for an easier way to whiten and improve your smile for good, then dental veneers may be the right treatment for you.
Veneers are largely stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened. Instead, a visit to your dentist every six months for a professional clean and polish is normally enough to keep your veneers looking brand new.
Other Considerations of Getting Dental Veneers
During the preparation phase, some enamel of the teeth is reduced in order to make it possible to place the veneers.
Because the natural tooth is reduced, even though only a tiny fraction, this means that the placement of dental veneers is a permanent procedure.
Much like a natural tooth, a dental veneer is not invincible and it is possible to suffer a broken or fractured veneer if proper care is not taken. Veneers are very strong and should last a long, long time. However, excessive biting forces or biting very hard items (such as ice, for example) can cause them to become damaged.
How Long Does the Process Take
Thanks to advances in technology and very talented dentists, a set of dental veneers can be completed using Smile Design 3D CAD CAM technology in just one day! This is great news because the dentist has full control of the procedure from beginning to end. This means that any changes, adjustments and additional contourings are done immediately and you do not need repeat visits to the dentist.
Gone are the days of taking impressions and waiting for external lab work. Instead, our dentist takes a digital scan of the teeth, custom designs each tooth by computer and mills it from a small ceramic block in just a few minutes.
