Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment, or spacing and chips or cracks. Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today's veneers provides a more natural look than what's been available in the past.
Types Of Tooth Veneer Procedures :-
- Composite Veneer Procedure : - Composite (direct) veneers are usually performed in a single visit to your cosmetic dentist. The procedure is an application of a bond and enamel directly to the tooth's surface.
- Porcelain Veneer Procedure : - Porcelain (indirect) veneers are a very thin porcelain material. Usually porcelain veneers require two visits and also require a dental laboratory to create the final tooth restoration piece.
- Lumineer Porcelain Veneer Procedure : - Made of Cerinate porcelain, Lumineers are a new type of porcelain veneers. They are contact lens-thin, roughly .2 mm thick. Little to no tooth reduction in most cases is necessary with this type of veneer and anesthetics or numbing shots are not needed.
The veneer procedure occurs in two steps. You and your cosmetic dentist will choose the color of veneer that will best suit your existing teeth. The dentist will then shape any chips or crooked edges and remove a small portion of the enamel on the teeth to make room for the veneers. You may receive local anesthetic at this point to minimize any discomfort. An impression of your reshaped teeth will then be made to help the laboratory form your custom individual veneers
About two weeks later on your second visit, a mild chemical will be applied to your teeth to make the veneers adhere more strongly. Using composite resin cement, the veneers will then be fitted one by one to the front of your teeth to fashion your new smile. If the veneers need any subtle reshaping, this can be done in the same session. As soon as the veneers have been put in place, your teeth will be prepared for smiling, talking and eating. You can expect veneer to last up to 15 years.
There are few risks involved in the veneer process, but you should be aware that the veneering process is not reversible. Because you cannot change the color of veneers once in place, if you plan on whitening your teeth, you must do so prior to getting veneers.
Veneers may not be an option for those with seriously damaged or diseased teeth as this affects the structural integrity of teeth and may no work with bonding agents. Also, veneers may not be a good choice for individuals who grind and clench their teeth, as veneers may crack or chip. Choosing the right cosmetic dentistry procedure for you should be done with an experienced and qualified dental professional.
