A beautiful smile begets a beautiful face. If you gave a perfectly symmetrical and attractive face then a perfect smile can make it even more appealing. However, there are numerous reasons why your teeth might not be naturally perfect, despite proper oral hygiene too.
This calls for fixing your discolored teeth using efficient dental veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are dental prosthetics. These are made from thin shells of porcelain mostly and are designed to be easily attached to the front of the teeth. This provides a natural protective cover to your teeth and also makes them look bright, white and attractive.
Who is a good candidate for Dental Veneers?
You are considered a good candidate for dental veneers if:
- You have discolored teeth
- You have stained teeth
- You have misaligned teeth
- You have chipped teeth
- You have abnormally spaced teeth
- You have unnatural gaps between teeth
- Your teeth have suffered natural wear and tear
Are there different types of Dental Veneers?
There are mainly two types of dental veneers, distinguished according to the material used in making them, namely porcelain and composite resin.
Both of these types of veneers are designed according to the natural shape and size of each patient’s teeth. These are easily developed in a dental laboratory. These veneers are attached to the teeth using special dental adhesive which helps to keep them fixed in place at all times.
Porcelain veneers are popular as these become stronger when attached to the teeth. On the other hand, composite resin veneers can be easily constructed in your teeth directly, at the dentist’s clinic.
How are Dental Veneers attached?
Dental veneers are attached using simple and almost painless method. Initially, the dentist will take an impression of the teeth which are needed to be covered with the veneer. The mold with the teeth impression is sent to the dental laboratory for manufacturing.
The dental surgeon will remove a small amount of the affected teeth. This is meant to offer better hold and firmness to the veneer.
Another session at the dentist’s will be used to fix the manufactured veneers. In this, the dentist will use special resin cement to bond the veneer with your damaged teeth.
Maintenance of dental porcelain and composite resin veneers is fairly easy. You need to simply follow the conventional oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing and flossing. This will help to remove harmful bacteria, plaque and food particles that get stuck in the teeth and start to decay it.
The dental surgeon will advise you on any special instructions that you might need to maintain your dental veneers.
