One of the most effective options available in the treatment of damaged, discolored or misshapen teeth comes in the form of dental veneers. Teeth that display a range of characteristics, such as chips, cracks, stains, breakage, gaps or irregularity can be both improved and rectified by the relatively simple application of dental veneers.
Dental veneers are a technique that involve the use of porcelain constructed in a way that is reminiscent of your natural teeth, both in color and feel.
A tooth veneer is composed of a very thin layer of material that is placed on the front of the teeth and serve to effectively enhance your smile for greatly improved cosmetic appeal.
Porcelain dental veneers are composed of a thin layer of tooth-colored porcelain that is attached to the front of the tooth. Dental veneers are very complementary in terms of their natural tooth-like quality, effectively mimicking the texture and translucency of your natural teeth. Porcelain dental veneers also resist staining, unlike other cosmetic dental bonding materials, and are smooth, therefore resisting the permanent staining from cigarette smoking or richly colored foods.
What is the Tooth Veneer process?
- In order to place a tooth veneer, a small amount of enamel is removed before an impression is taken.
- After this has been completed, a technician molds the tooth veneer.
- The tooth veneer is then cemented to the tooth.
- This tooth veneer process can involve a couple of separate dental appointments.
The porcelain dental veneers are translucent and show your natural tooth color though. This way, they match the teeth in your smile and do not stick out and look like a fake tooth. But if you decide to get dental veneers on all the teeth that show in your smile, you can get the dental veneers a little lighter in shade if you want to brighten your smile.
