If you have any visible imperfections or aesthetic concerns with your teeth, dental veneers could help improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are simple, convenient, exceptionally durable, and can be customized to imitate the aesthetics of the adjacent natural teeth perfectly. At All Smile Dental in California, we offer these customized restorations to conceal the flaws of teeth and enhance your smile.
What Are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer provides a cosmetic solution for various tooth imperfections, like chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth, or helps to hide the unappealing gaps between your teeth. They are customized thin resin coverings that permanently bond to teeth's surfaces with the help of adhesives. They are often composed of dental-grade ceramic or composite resin materials. Veneers are primarily applied to the frontal teeth.
Benefits of Veneers
Dental veneers make up for about 26 percent of cosmetic treatments performed by dentists around the world. The primary reasons for opting for veneers over other dental procedures include:
- They can alter the color and size of your teeth.
- They can hide the white spots on teeth caused by the excessive use of fluoride.
- They help repair chipped, worn down, or broken teeth.
- They cover teeth discoloration and stains caused by dark-colored foods, root canal treatment, large resin fillings, tetracycline, or other drugs.
- They can bridge the gaps between the teeth, giving you a more uniformly spaced smile.
Dental Veneer Procedure
A patent would need at least two visits to the dentist to receive a dental veneer. During the initial consultation, our dentist, Dr. A. P. Singh, will examine your teeth and assess their shape, color, and severity of the oral condition. X-rays and digital scans of the tooth are taken to serve as a reference for creating the veneer in a dental lab, which could take a few days.
Once the veneers are ready, we will prepare the teeth to bond them. We will thoroughly clean the teeth and create a rough texture on them with the help of a shaping tool or an etching liquid. Finally, we will bond the veneer restoration to the tooth by using dental adhesives. Laser light is used to harden the dental cement instantly, and the restoration would be polished to enhance its aesthetics.
Dental veneers deliver long-term solutions to alter the appearance of a person's smile. Their simple nature and their significant enhancement to a person's smile make veneers the most desirable cosmetic dental restorations.
