Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are very thin shells of porcelain or resin material that are bonded over the front of your natural teeth to change the way that they look. From crowding to uneven teeth, veneers can be used for a variety of aesthetic situations, and results are amazing.

Veneers are made of porcelain or resin material. They are tooth coloured materials. The best things about veneers is, they are stain resistant. To get a dental veneer done, we need to take the full mouth impression first. Then we will send it to the lab to fabricate the veneer. On the next appointment, we attach the veneer onto the tooth surface by means of bonding agent.

The veneer has to snugly fit over the faulty tooth/teeth to cover its flaws and give it a natural look. So, a proper full mouth impression is very important to get an appropriate veneer done. Once placed in your mouth, it will look just like your natural tooth. No one can differentiate it.

Are veneers permanent?

Porcelain Veneers Are Irreversible but Long-Lasting. Although porcelain veneers are not considered a permanent procedure since they will likely have to be replaced at some point, they can last for decades as long as you take care of them properly.

Does It Hurt To Get Veneers?

No! Most patients report no pain or discomfort at all during treatment. This is because the procedure is minimally-invasive.

What are the different types of veneers?

Dental veneers are most commonly made out of porcelain. Applying traditional dental veneers requires more intensive prep work compared to alternatives that are sometimes called “no-prep veneers.” These no-prep veneers — which include options like Lumineers and Vivaneeres — take less time and are less invasive to apply.

Applying traditional dental veneers typically involves grinding down the tooth structure, sometimes removing some of the tooth even past the enamel. This allows for proper placement, but it’s also an irreversible procedure that can be painful to go through and often requires a local anesthetic.

No-prep veneers, on the other hand, may require some tooth preparation or alteration, but these alterations are minimal. Instead of removing layers of tooth under the enamel, no-prep veneers only affect the enamel. In many cases, no-prep veneers don’t require local anesthetics.

Veneers aren’t the same as tooth implants or crowns. Veneers cover the front surface of the tooth. Implants, on the other hand, replace the entire tooth. Crowns also encase the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth (which is visible with a smile).

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

he biggest benefit to veneers is improving the appearance of your teeth, giving you a brighter and more even smile. Dental veneers are often used to treat the following cosmetic occurrences:

• broken or chipped teeth
• severe discoloration or uneven coloring that can’t be fixed with whitening
• gaps in the teeth
• smaller-than-average teeth
• pointed or unusually shaped teeth

Veneers can last for more than a decade, depending on the type of veneer you choose, making them a semipermanent investment that can make you more confident in your smile.
