Dental Veneers Glenmore Park
Dental veneers are one of the best tools that dentists have in their toolkit to rejuvenate and repair your smile. Veneers are normally composed of porcelain and help to correct a large variety of challenges when it comes to teeth. Some problems that dental veneers can overcome include minor chips, breaks and cracks.
Getting dental veneers may be an appropriate treatment choice for you, particularly if bleaching or tooth whitening treatments have not worked out the way that you expected them to. They also help those who have significantly worn teeth or teeth that are discolored. Dental veneers can help anyone with perceived defects in their teeth, including teeth that are awkwardly positioned, too pointy, or too small.
Since veneers are essentially permanent, it pays to do your homework and make sure that you completely grasp all of your treatment options before having them applied to your teeth.
A veneer is simply a thin shell that we attach to one or more of your teeth. They are colored to match your original tooth color. They will completely cover the front of every tooth that they are applied to, mimicking the appearance of natural teeth.
Patients get dental veneers for a variety of reasons, including to cover discoloured teeth or stains caused by excessive fluoride or certain antibiotics like tetracycline. They can also be used to cover discolored tooth fillings that are overly prominent.
Dental veneers work by providing a cover for your teeth using an extremely thin layer of material like porcelain, which is the most popular material for dental veneers.
We apply your veneers by removing a small amount of the outer enamel surface of your tooth. The tooth nerve will remain protected, and your dental veneers should last for a long time. It is not necessary to cover all of your teeth using dental veneers. The only ones that require veneers are those that could be problematic.
At your consultation, we can offer you the most appropriate recommendation for the number of veneers that will be needed to match the color and shape of surrounding teeth.
Dental veneers can provide a complete covering for teeth. Another option is partial veneers that only cover discolored or damaged parts of a tooth. The choice depends upon the corrections that you desire to make and the general state of your mouth.
Porcelain has become such a popular choice for dental veneers that it has become almost synonymous with the term "veneers" itself. The reason for its popularity is that it is a strong material that is highly stain resistant. Porcelain veneers have also become extremely popular due to many celebrities getting them.
After shaving down a small amount of tooth surface to make room for your new veneers, we will create a mold of your teeth to allow for the customization of your veneer. We will then place a temporary veneer until your permanent one is ready. When it arrives, we will affix the veneer to your tooth using dental cement.
Once you have received your veneers, you only need to follow your regular oral hygiene routine. Continue to properly brush and floss your teeth, including your new veneers. Letting up on your regular oral habits can cause problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
