If your teeth wear down, you can undergo dental veneer treatment to restore the teeth's shape and aesthetics. Dental veneers are thin shells attached to the teeth surface to correct chipped, discoloured, protruding, gapped, uneven, or crooked teeth.
Three types of Dental veneers are available. They include:
Depending on your desired result, you can use dental veneers in different situations. Veneers can serve the following purposes.
The teeth can gradually take on a yellowish or brownish tint due to natural factors or habits like drinking coffee and smoking. Teeth discolouration may also be due to medical causes like taking some antibiotics.
Regardless of the cause of your teeth discolouration, you can use dental veneers if the traditional teeth whitening options aren't effective or might damage your teeth.
Small noticeable chips on the teeth may not be a medical issue but can make you feel self-conscious about your smile, preventing you from smiling and speaking. Dental veneers can cover the chips of your teeth to improve your self-confidence.
Some teeth are naturally smaller or larger than others. With dental veneers, you can even out the teeth's shape and size to give better and aesthetically pleasing teeth.
Most people use braces to correct their teeth alignment, but if you don't want to wear braces, your next option will be fitting dental veneers. However, younger patients will need orthodontic treatment to close gaps between the teeth and correct the teeth's alignment because fitting dental veneers will require filing down healthy teeth.
Teeth grinding or bruxism is a condition where the affected person grinds their teeth, especially while sleeping. Patients with bruxism have to deal with gradual loss of the enamel. Fitting porcelain veneers can restore the appealing nature of the teeth and prevent the teeth sensitivity to cold and hot drinks and food.
Veneers are made with durable material that makes them resistant to wear and tear. Veneers tend to last for several years.
Dental veneers can last 10- 15 years with a good oral hygiene routine.
Before getting dental veneers, the dentist will take your teeth impression to create well-fitting veneers that improve your smile.
You can get dental veneers in two dental visits.
Veneers are resistant to stain marks, allowing you to maintain whiter and brighter teeth even with regular coffee, red wine, and tea intake.
Veneers can enhance the appearance of misaligned, stained, broken, broadly dispersed, and chipped teeth. They are perfect cosmetic dental treatments for the front and visible teeth.
After getting dental veneers, you can leave the clinic and return to your daily activities.
You can undergo teeth whitening to remove teeth discolouration and stain, leaving your smile whiter and more attractive.
A more attractive smile and general appearance boost your self-confidence
Your desired result and chosen veneer will determine the fitting process. Correcting a dental issue like discoloured teeth is usually simple and requires fewer steps than fixing a misaligned tooth or covering a chipped tooth.
Unlike porcelain veneers that require several hours in the laboratory for the fabrication process, the dentist will form and shape a composite veneer on the tooth.
Your dentist will explain the procedure before starting the treatment, including the expected outcome. Your dental veneer fitting process may start with your dentist taking your teeth impression, and you may need a dental x-ray to confirm the state of your existing teeth. The dentist will check for gum disease and decay before going forward with the preparatory steps.
Composite veneers require one dental visit. During the fitting, the dentist will apply acid on the tooth surface to roughen it, then apply an adhesive before placing the composite material. They will gradually form the composite material in thin layers to get the desired result. If you're satisfied with the procedure's outcome, the dentist will polish and smoothen the surface to achieve a natural appearance.
The dentist will remove a thin layer of the tooth surface for fitting porcelain veneers. The size of the enamel removed will fit the size of the porcelain veneer. Although filing down the tooth is common, it is not a compulsory step for all cases. Filing down the enamel is painless, but the dental professional will administer mild anaesthesia.
After filing down the tooth, the dentist will take your teeth impression to make the veneers, then fit the temporary veneer until the permanent option is available.
Before fitting the permanent veneer, the dentist will clean the tooth and roughen the tooth surface with acid, then apply a dental adhesive before fitting the porcelain veneer.
How long your dental veneer will last depends on the material used to make the veneer and the type of veneer. All veneers are durable and can withstand biting and chewing pressure. Veneers can last for up to 20 years with proper care.
The following aftercare tips will ensure your dental veneers last long.
