Dental veneers do just that; they cover dental problems such as grey, dead teeth, severely yellowed teeth and teeth that are badly misaligned to create beautiful, gleaming smiles and full sets of teeth. Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of tooth-coloured laminate pressed onto the teeth to correct aesthetic problems that can completely transform smiles.
If you have teeth stained from years of smoking or if you have damaged teeth from an accident, excessive grinding or from the consumption of too many carbonated soft drinks, veneers might be for you. Additionally, if you have gaps in your smile and crooked teeth, and braces and other teeth straightening methods don’t work, you might consider veneers.
Each set of veneers is specially designed for individual wearers after an initial consultation with a dentist. The teeth have to be prepped before the veneers are adhered and after applying anaesthesia, the surfaces of the teeth are filed. Only enough of the tooth is removed so that the veneer replaces the material that was lost. It’s not long after this, usually at a follow-up appointment, that your veneers are fitted and you’re free to go with your bright, new smile.
Porcelain veneers are not permanent, although they do last a long time, generally up to 10 years. After this time, they will need to replaced. Maintaining a proper oral health routine will ensure that your veneers last as long as possible and remain in good condition.
There are multiple types of porcelain veneers out there ranging from Lumineers to ceramic veneers. You could consult with your dental practitioner to determine which type of veneers works best for you and your lifestyle.
