Do you feel embarrassed about your teeth? Well, veneers might be the solution you’ve been looking for! Veneers are the most cost-effective and straightforward solution to a number of cosmetic problems like cracked teeth and staining. So if you’ve been looking for a way to improve your teeth and feel more confident, you need to stop hiding your smile and start asking yourself about veneers.
What are Veneers?
A veneer is basically a thin-shell that is designed to cover the surface of a tooth to improve the overall appearance. It can be made to look exactly like your other teeth to match the particular colour, size or shape that you want. Once bonded to your tooth, it will last for years, as it’s made out of very durable materials. When it comes to the veneer material, porcelain is superior — it won’t stain easily and will last up to 25 years if properly maintained.
What Problems Do They Solve?
Veneers are a flexible solution that can correct a wide range of cosmetic problems like missing, misaligned, cracked, gapped, and stained teeth. By adding a customized veneer to the teeth, you can enhance the look and functionality at the same time. They can also make chewing easier and more comfortable.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
Applying a veneer is a quick and simple process that doesn’t involve any downtime whatsoever. During your first visit, your dentist will help you decide on the colour and shape of the veneer and will discuss how it will look. They’ll remove about a half millimetre of your natural tooth enamel, and then they’ll take an impression of your teeth. You’ll return home while the veneer is carefully crafted. Once they’re finished, you’ll be asked to return to have the fabricated veneer bonded to your tooth.
