They change their smiles, and this causes a large number of folks to make the same step forward and have their dentists give them veneers.
A veneer is nothing more than a covering, like a thin little layer on that piece of furniture to give it the look of real wood grain. When used for your teeth, the veneer is a thin covering usually made of composite resin or porcelain material. It will brighten your teeth, mask discolorations, and improve your smile.
As we age, and over time, our teeth will become darker on the inside and the outside, they will wear down, and make them look even darker.
So many different things can cause discoloration for your teeth:
Veneers can be used to change a tooth’s shape, size, or color. They are the ideal piece for covering up your teeth that are chipped or stained, to fill in gaps between front teeth.
A new smile can cause you to look more successful, more attractive, and more intelligent. The first thing people seem to notice that somebody’s smile include:
You can have veneers put on one tooth or a series of your teeth. The whole process might take three appointments to complete: diagnosis and treatment planning, prepping the teeth and then bonding.
Before they put on the veneer, your dentist will then buff lightly to reshape individual teeth to allow for that added thickness of the new covering. It might require some anesthetic. After you get the tooth prepared, an image is taken of the reshaped tooth and molded so that it can be sent to a special dental laboratory, so the porcelain veneer is made to fit your tooth.
Your dentist will apply the veneer with an adhesive material to bond it to your original tooth. A light beam is utilized to harden the adhesive. If the veneer to be applied is composed of a resin composite, your dentist might be able to put it on at the preparation visit.
