A veneer is a “thin piece of porcelain/composite used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.” They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel during a series of in-office procedures. The right veneers are a quick way to a beautiful smile, and this treatment is perfect for people with teeth that are stained, chipped or have gaps. But veneers are an irreversible treatment, so having them placed is a big decision. Before you and your dentist decide the procedure is right for you, it’s important to have the right information about veneers, their cost and how best to care for them.
• They provide a natural tooth appearance.
• Gums tolerates porcelain well.
• Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
• A color can be selected to make dark teeth appear whiter.
• They generally don’t require as much shaping as crowns do, yet they are stronger and look better.
The process of having a veneer made for your tooth involves a few short visits to your Dentist. The procedure is simple and relatively painless.
Brush and floss as you regularly do. Use non-abrasive toothpaste to help maintain the shine and gloss of your veneers. Normal diet will not harm your veneers. Avoid any shearing force on these teeth (like biting a sugarcane). Regular check-ups will ensure your veneers are in excellent shape. Well maintained veneers should last you for many years and give you a long lasting and beautiful smile.
