The popularity of cosmetic dentistry is on the rise, and many people are looking forward to opting for the same. As a result, dental veneers have become their first choice. The use of veneers is considered a gold standard in this field and for all the right reasons. Dental veneers are tooth-colored, wafer-thin shells that we attach to the front surface of your teeth.
Veneers solve many cosmetic dental problems, ranging from chipped or broken teeth to worn-out teeth. They also help with gaps between the teeth and cover your severely-discolored teeth. If you have any of these problems, schedule an appointment with us. We ensure that the application of veneers will give you the best cosmetic dental transformation.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
- Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic dental procedure that solves many concerns and offers a beautiful smile.
- The procedure is less-invasive and completed in one sitting only.
- Veneers do not require special care or maintenance. All you need to do is continue your basic oral care routine like brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
- Veneers are a durable treatment. If maintained properly, they may last up to 15 years.
What is the Process of Treatment?
When you visit us for the first time, we will discuss your goals for the treatment. We will also conduct a visual examination of your teeth to check the problem and decide on the right kind of veneers. If necessary, we will also carry out your X-rays or make impressions of your teeth.
For your teeth to hold the restoration properly, we will work on their surface. It involves trimming some enamel so that the veneers fit snugly. We may administer a local anesthetic to numb the site and carry out the trimming. The impressions of your teeth will be sent to the lab for the preparations of veneers. They are customized to fit the shape, size, and structure of your teeth.
On the last appointment, we will attach veneers to the front surface of your teeth and ensure they fit perfectly. If required, some trimming will be carried out. We will clean, polish, and roughen your teeth before bonding so that veneers stick permanently on them. Using a special light, we will activate the adhesive and cure it quickly. Excess adhesive will be removed, and the fit of your veneers will be double-checked.
