An essential component for a striking personality is to have a pleasant and beautiful smile. But, you cannot appear beautiful and smart unless you have perfectly white and shiny teeth. If you feel shy about smiling in front of other people because of your crooked and stained teeth, you don’t have to worry anymore.
Porcelain veneers offer a great solution to hide the imperfections of your teeth and transform your smile. They are ultra-thin coverings made of solid, durable ceramic materials and are fastened to the front surfaces of the teeth. This process can be performed in just two appointments at a dental office. Veneers are widely used to improve smiles all over the world.
Who Needs Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are useful restoration devices to conceal the shape and damaged look of chipped or broken teeth. Porcelain veneers can benefit you if you suffer from any of the following problems:
Chipped Teeth or Crooked Teeth
Misshapen and cracked teeth will not only ruin your smile but also cause hindrances while eating and speaking. Porcelain veneers will help reinstate the appearance, shape, and function of these imperfect teeth.
Need For a Smile Makeover
A complete smile makeover can be given if you are not happy with your smile or the shape of your teeth. With dental veneers, you can have an aesthetic set of teeth, allowing you to smile again with confidence.
Some age-related teeth stains cannot be removed through a professional teeth whitening procedure. These stains can be cosmetically hidden with the help of porcelain veneers.
Excessive Teeth Gaps
Porcelain veneers can help conceal the excessive gap between adjacent teeth and, as a result, improve your facial aesthetic and smile.
How Are Veneers Placed?
Your dentist performs a detailed examination of your teeth to make sure that you are suitable for this procedure.
The teeth are then prepared to place the veneers by removing a thin layer of the natural tooth structure to create space for the veneers. During this stage, the shade and color of the adjoining natural teeth will be recorded and sent to the laboratory.
An impression of the prepared teeth will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory to fabricate veneers.
Once the veneers are returned from the laboratory, they will be first tried onto your teeth before permanently attaching them. If the aesthetics and fit are found to be satisfactory, the veneers are permanently secured to your teeth with the help of adhesive cement.
