What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are special sheets of porcelain or composite resin that bond to teeth to rebuild an individual’s smile. They are ideal for covering discoloration, brightening teeth, fixing misshaped teeth, and improving your smile in general. Best of all, the installation process requires virtually no anesthesia, so you are able to go through the process without fear of pain.
So Why Veneers?
Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns (caps) in many instances, they are a much more conservative method of transforming a tooth’s color, size or shape. Veneers can cover undesirable flaws, like teeth stained by tetracycline, damage because of a personal injury, or root-canal treatments. They are ideal for masking discolored tooth fillings in front teeth. Patients with spaces between their front teeth, chipped teeth, or worn teeth may consider veneers. Usually, veneers can last for quite some time, and the technique has shown outstanding longevity when correctly performed.
Exactly What Does It Take to Get Veneers?
You will need to attend up to three sessions to have your veneers installed. The first appointment is for diagnosis and treatment preparation. This is when you and Dr. Stegmann find out what your new smile will look like. If you want multiple consultations, you and the dentist will work together to develop the right solution.
To prepare your teeth, they’re lightly buffed to allow the small added thickness of the veneer. Generally, tooth removal of half a millimeter will suffice and might require a local anesthetic. Composite resin veneers are generally completed in one scheduled visit. After tooth preparation, the dentist meticulously bonds and sculpts the composite material on your teeth. For ceramic veneers, a mold of the teeth is sent to the laboratory for veneer fabrication. This may take a couple of days. A temporary veneer will aid unsightly teeth as needed.
As soon as your ceramic veneers come in, the dentist will check each one to make sure the shade, color, and shape are correct. The dentist may change the color at this point using the cement. When the veneers are bonded, their color cannot be changed. Finally, the dentist will bond the veneers to your teeth, utilizing a light beam to harden the cement.
What Are Realistic Expectations?
Veneers are created to be close replicas of teeth; but, they aren’t exact matches. You may notice some variations in the color of the veneers whenever you look at them close. This occurs with natural teeth though, so you should still be able to enjoy the new smile within your mouth. Most people won’t even notice the differences.
