everything you need to know about veneers

What Is A Veneer?

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin material that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They are used to address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:

 

Stains or discoloration that cannot be removed with teeth whitening procedures

Chips or cracks in the teeth

Uneven or misshapen teeth

Gaps between the teeth

What Is The Process Of Getting Veneers?

The process of getting dental veneers typically involves two or more visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneers. Then, a scan of the teeth will be taken and used to create the veneers.

 

At the next visit, the veneers will be bonded to the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. The dentist will then shape and polish the veneers to match the natural contours of the surrounding teeth and ensure a seamless appearance.

 

Dental veneers are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care, such as regular brushing and flossing, and avoiding habits that can damage the veneers, such as biting on hard objects.

Are Veneers For Everyone?

It is important to note that dental veneers are not a suitable solution for everyone, and your dentist can advise you on whether they are appropriate for your specific situation. In some cases, alternative treatments may be recommended, such as teeth whitening, orthodontics or dental bonding.

 

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry option for those seeking to improve the appearance of their teeth. They are durable and long-lasting. If you are considering veneers, it is important to consult with a dentist to determine whether they are the best option for you
