Fix chipped, stained and misaligned teeth with Porcelain Veneers
One of the most popular dental implements across the globe is porcelain veneers. The reason for this popularity is the fact that it allows the dentist to successfully convert chipped, stained and misaligned teeth into uniformed flawless smiles. This is achieved in just two to three visits. The fact that porcelain veneers are custom made allows them to resemble the natural enamel of the teeth so closely that the difference is imperceptible.
Smile restoration with Porcelain Veneers
As a dental patient interested in smile restoration or enhancement, you will no doubt be interested in the method and materials associated with porcelain veneers. The first thing you need to know is that veneers are thin customized casings that are designed to cap over or cover the front of your teeth. Oral care experts recommend them for the restoration and enhancement of smiles that are marred by discolored, chipped or crooked teeth.
Each patient’s veneer is made in a laboratory, where the specialist shapes it to fit the model provided by the dentist. The specialist who creates the customized teeth casings is known as a ceramist. They use layers of high quality dental porcelain to make the veneers. When the veneer is finished it is just about as thick as a fingernail. It is then delivered to the dentist who bonds it to the surface of the tooth (which has already been prepared for the bonding process.
Porcelain Veneers are permanent and irreversible
It is also important to note that the that installation of porcelain veneers are permanent and irreversible. The reason for this is the fact that, in order to install the veneer, the dentists has to first remove a small portion of the tooth’s enamel in order to facilitate the attachment of the covering. This makes the bonding process more effective and allows for a natural look when the process is finished.
Many dentists advise patients who have had porcelain veneers installed to avoid drinks such as red wine, tea and coffee since they may stain or alter the color of the veneers. The teeth casings are not permanent and some patients may find that they get chipped or fractured just like normal teeth would. Regardless of this, many people find them to be an appealing means of achieving that perfect smile.
In summary porcelain veneers can help you to achieve the following in just two to three visits:
• Improved color for your teeth (covering stains caused by substances such as tobacco and medicines)
• A younger, healthier appearance.
• Improved appearance of your teeth and restoration of damaged teeth as chips and breaks are repaired.
• Conceal misalignments by covering wide spaces between teeth and crooked teeth.
• Make your smile more appealing by neatening the teeth (shortening or lengthening those that appear odd in order to achieve a uniformed smile.
Veneers can be used to restore any number of teeth. Depending on the need, some dental patients opt to apply the restoration implement to one tooth while others choose to veneer all the teeth that sit in the smile zone
