Dental veneers are thin custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. Veneers can correct your smile imperfections and give you a brighter smile by bonding to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length. Veneers can correct your smile imperfections, and give you a brighter smile.
Who Can Get Veneers?
People who suffer from teeth that are:
Materials for Dental Veneer
1. Porcelain – Resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth
2.Resin Composite – Thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.
The gap or spaces between teeth and misalignment were corrected by porcelain veneers.
This case shows teeth replacement with implants and crowns as well as porcelain veneers.
- Provide a natural tooth appearance
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
- Porcelain veneers are stain resistant
- The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter
- Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape-veneers generally don’t require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to bonding
- The process is not reversible
- Veneers are more costly than composite resin bonding
- Because enamel has been removed, your tooth may become more sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages
- Veneers may not exactly match the color of your other teeth. Also, the veneer’s color cannot be altered once in place. If you plan on whitening your teeth, you need to do so before getting veneers.
- Though not likely, veneers can dislodge and fall off. To minimize the chance of this occurring, do not bite your nails; chew on pencils, ice or other hard objects; or otherwise put pressure on your teeth.
- Veneers are not a good choice for individuals with unhealthy teeth (for instance, those with decay or active periodontal disease), weakened teeth (as a result of decay, fracture, and large dental fillings or for those who have an inadequate amount of existing enamel on the tooth surface.)
The Result = Your New Smile
