A Veneer is a cosmetic dental appliance that enhances the look of your smile and helps to improve the way that your teeth function. They are usually used on front teeth and are designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are custom made for each patient, which means that they will fit your mouth comfortably and without any need for adhesives.
Who Should Get Veneers?
If you have front teeth that are chipped, crooked, stained or decayed, veneers may be a good choice for you. You can get veneers on any of your front adult teeth. If you need to have braces to correct your bite, the dentist will usually wait until the braces are removed before applying them. A dental veneer is a cost-effective and permanent way to correct cosmetic problems.
How the Dentist Applies Veneers
The process of placing a dental veneer is straightforward and simple. Your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel and then slip the veneer over the front surface of your tooth. The veneer may be made of porcelain or composite materials, so the dentist uses a specialized adhesive that is activated by a light. Once the adhesive is set, the veneer will be permanently attached to your teeth.
After getting dental veneers, you may feel more confident about your improved smile. Your new self-confidence can even lead to you smiling more, being more social and enjoying having your photo taken. Dental veneers also:
• Match the color and shape of your other teeth
• Last for many years
• Fix small gaps that do not benefit from orthodontics
• Can be brushed and flossed like your natural teeth
