One of the most popular and reliable developments in cosmetic dentistry, veneers are thin, customized cases that cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers are made use of to remedy uneven teeth, worn enamel, staining, cracked teeth and irregular spacing, and can last over 20 years. Sometimes, veneers can serve a restorative function and can safeguard a harmed tooth from more damage.
After a comprehensive examination of your teeth, which might consist of X-rays and taking impressions of your teeth, your dental expert will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Then he or she will certainly create an impression and send it off to a laboratory to develop the veneer. While the mold is being developed, your dental practitioner might supply you with temporary veneers. The veneer’s size and color are given one last change prior to they are cemented to your tooth on your 2nd see.
Veneers can provide your teeth a more natural, visually pleasing look and are stain resistant and soft on gums. Sometimes, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can secure a harmed tooth from additional damage.
Considering that porcelain veneers are more resistant to spots and damaging, they are normally more expensive. Lumineers are an especially popular type of porcelain veneers that do not need your teeth to be shaved and can even be positioned over crown or bridgework. A custom-made set of Lumineers can be installed in 2-3 sees and is shown to last over 20 years. For more details on Veneers, kindly call our office!
