For people who don’t like the appearance of their teeth but still have strong tooth and gum structure, porcelain veneers can be the perfect way to improve their smile without making any structural changes to the mouth.
Porcelain veneers are small coverings that go over your teeth. They are made of tooth-coloured material and are glued onto the tooth. There are a number of conditions for which porcelain veneers are perfect: stained teeth, cracked teeth, decayed teeth or slightly misaligned teeth. They can also fill gaps between teeth by making them “wider.”
Porcelain Veneers: an Easy Treatment
It typically takes two appointments to provide you with porcelain veneers. In the first appointment, the dentist will assess the feasibility and answer any questions you may have. The dentist will take an enamel sample from one of your teeth. He will also make a mould of your teeth and send it to a laboratory, where they will make a cast of your teeth.
Dental wax is put over the cast, allowing you to see what a porcelain veneer would look like. If you like the look and a veneer is appropriate for you, a second appointment will be made and the dentist will fit your porcelain veneer.
Choosing Dental Services
Porcelain veneers aren’t for everyone but they can be a great cosmetic solution if you are looking to improve your smile. Sometimes, a tooth will have too much damage. Sometimes, a more extensive solution, such as Invisalign invisible braces or dentures or dental implants may be necessary.
Sometimes, you may not like the “look” of a porcelain veneer. At any rate, there are a plethora of other dental services available for you if porcelain veneers aren’t what you are looking for.
