Dental veneers are an effective solution of modern cosmetic dentistry for someone with healthy teeth who is looking to improve the shape, size, or the colour of his or her teeth.
If you have gaps between your teeth.
If you have a cracked tooth
If the position of your teeth is compromised.
Or if you have stained teeth that do not respond well to teeth whitening.
Dental Veneers (or sometimes called veneers for teeth) are ultra-thin custom made layers of material bonded to the front surface of your imperfect tooth or teeth. There are many types of dental veneers but the most popular and most frequently used are porcelain veneers because of their natural appearance and their durability.
At your initial consultation, we will discuss which of those types of veneers are the best option for you having in mind your oral health, the desired smile you want, the functionality of the teeth, your specific needs and of course the cost of the veneers. Your oral health is a crucial issue for obtaining veneers. Patients who are suitable for dental veneers must have a good oral health without any periodontal diseases (gum diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis or advanced periodontitis) and also have an adequate amount of enamel.
The process for applying dental veneers is:
Tooth preparation where a thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth.
Impressions are taken for the custom-made veneer
The veneer is bonded to the tooth
The aftercare for teeth veneers
A good habit to build: After obtaining your teeth veneers, you have to carefully maintain them by daily brushing and flossing and see our dentists twice a year.
A bad habit to quit: If you bite your nails or your pen, you have to stop it. When you are chewing hard object your natural teeth and your veneers will be damaged.
