The objective of this dental procedure is to cover the front surface of your teeth (or tooth, depending on your individual case) by bonding them with a fine layer of porcelain. Veneers are as strong as natural teeth and are guaranteed to last a very long time. They can be used to cover unpleasant spaced between your teeth as for covering stains and discoloration.
If you've always desired to have one of those flashy and perfect smiles, porcelain veneers may be the solution you've been looking for. With this procedure, the color, shape and alignment of your teeth can be altered, giving you a more pleasant and attractive smile without putting your long-term dental health at risk.
For a more masculine smile, dentists usually use veneers to create squarer teeth, while using deeper curves to separate each tooth creates a more feminine smile. At the same time, veneers can strengthen teeth that have suffered from decay or amalgam (old restoration technique). Also, they are custom made to fit accurately over your teeth and are 100% tissue-friendly, leading to an enhancement of your gum tissue health.
The whole process will take several visits to your cosmetic dentist so that the best results are achieved. Your teeth will be prepared for their placement during your first appointment. Your dentist will proceed to remove the upper layer of your tooth enamel (usually ½ a millimeter); if you find this phase uncomfortable, anesthesia may be utilized. Once your teeth are prepared, your cosmetic dentist will make an impression (mold) of your teeth so that the porcelain veneers can be custom made. It can usually take around 1 to 2 weeks for their manufacturing, depending on the extent of the procedure.
During the last phase of treatment, when the porcelain veneers are ready, they will be applied and fitted over the problematic areas. Once you and your doctor are satisfied with the fit, even it means making minor adjustments in color and shape, the veneers will be placed permanently.
