The popularity of dental veneers is increasing manifold in all parts of the world. This cosmetic dental procedure addresses various problems altogether, thus offering you an incredible transformation of your smile. Whether you are suffering from chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps between your teeth, or a severely discolored smile – veneers are a solution to all the problems.
Veneers are thin, wafer-like tooth-colored shells that we attach to the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. We bond them permanently to your teeth and offer you a long-term solution to the problem. The attachment of veneers alters their shape, size, length, and color. They are a suitable treatment for all age groups.
What are the Types of Veneers?
- Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are the best choice if you want to make tiny alterations to your teeth. They change the shape, size, and color of your teeth and are the thinnest type of veneers.
- Ceramic Veneers
If you want to restore the natural appearance of your teeth, ceramic veneers make the best choice. Ceramic veneers are a durable option over other types.
- Composite Veneers
Composite veneers are the most cost-effective option of veneers that we place in just one visit. Opting for them will save you money and time.
- Lumineer Veneers
They are thinner, cheaper, and quicker to apply, hence a favorable option to choose.
How are Veneers Attached?
During your first appointment, we will examine your teeth to ensure that veneers are the right choice for you. We will also decide the type of veneer to attach to your teeth. We will reshape the surface of your teeth to remove an amount equal to the thickness of the veneer.
After this, we will make a model or impression of your teeth and then send them to a dental lab to prepare veneers. The process may take a few weeks to complete. In the meantime, we will offer you temporary veneers.
On the next appointment, we will place the veneers on your teeth to examine their color and fit. We will clean, polish, and etch your teeth to allow a strong bonding procedure. We will bond them and remove any excess material.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
- Dental veneers solve multiple problems at once, including misshapen teeth, worn teeth, cracked teeth, broken teeth, and gaps between teeth.
- Veneers provide a long-lasting result. If taken care of properly, they last for 15 years.
- They are affordable and a safe cosmetic dental treatment.
