Understanding Dental Veneers.

Veneers are a thin, almost translucent shell, usually made of porcelain, tailor made to fit over an existing tooth. They are firmly bonded in place, proving to be sturdy and long-lasting. Veneers can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • the closing of gaps
  • repair of broken or chipped teeth
  • improvement of passe or unnatural fillings
  • whitening of stained teeth when laser teeth whitening is not possible
  • correction of crooked or misshapen teeth

Understanding the Benefits of Veneers.

Benefits of porcelain veneers can include the following:

  • Very little natural tooth, if any, needs to be removed
  • Involves little to no discomfort
  • More affordable than other alternatives
  • Durable, strong, and natural-looking

Understanding How Veneers are Made.

A mold of your tooth is taken to create a replica, whihc is then bonded right onto the surface of the existing tooth. For the bonding, a mild conditioning solution is applied to your tooth, and then a tooth-colored adhesive solution which keeps the veneer attached firmly.

Understanding the Shelf Life of Veneers.

Veneers can last for years, and can resist stains and chipping, but rely on the behavior of the patient. Good oral hygiene needs to be kept up, and awkward, extremely hard foods to be avoided. Of course, regular dental visits should be maintained.
