Not all of us are blessed with white, evenly aligned and well proportioned teeth. Dental veneers can help to bring on a sunny smile, supporting us in getting along easily with others as well as radiating confidence.
There are so many factors that can slowly ruin our smile day by day—age, chipping or breakage due to accidents, staining by various medications, foodstuffs or usage of substances like tobacco, tea, coffee and soda.
Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, veneers cover only the surface of the teeth (similar to the way a false fingernail covers a nail). This “magical mask” allows dentists to cover discoloured teeth, close small spaces, remove worn edges and make crooked teeth appear straight.
A dental veneer is a very thin porcelain layer
You may have thought about cosmetic restorations before but been afraid to undergo the grinding of your teeth surfaces. With veneers, your teeth will only be prepared to a thickness of about 0.6 mm. After that, dentists will apply special techniques to paste porcelain veneers on the outside of your teeth to provide a newer looking smile, both quickly and safely.
Veneers can close spaces between teeth
Veneer can change the shape of the teeth
Because veneers doesn’t significantly alter your natural teeth, the sensation of chewing is almost unchanged and tooth enamel is maintained to the maximum level. The porcelain veneer is also quite thin; so the colour looks similar to natural teeth. However, veneer techniques require that dentists have a high professional level to achieve the correct technical and aesthetics standards.
