Have you stopped smiling because you are ashamed of your discoloured or uneven teeth? Do you wish you had the beautiful white “pearls” of your favourite film star? Well, it’s probable that the celebrity smile you are envious of is because of veneers. With cosmetic dentistry and veneers, you too can have a smile to be proud of.
Veneers are thin shells that cover the natural teeth. They consist of several very thin layers of porcelain or a composite material. A tiny amount of tooth enamel has to be removed so that the veneers can fit in its place. Veneers are bonded to the natural teeth with a specially designed resin.
Whose Smile Can be Improved with Veneers?
Veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry to help anyone who has dingy or misshapen teeth, broken teeth, gaps between teeth, or misaligned teeth causing minor bite-related situations.
How Are They Beneficial?
Veneers are not the same as false teeth, which may not be one hundred percent comfortable. Also, they will not become stained by various substances such as tobacco, coffee, or tea. The owner’s new, bright smile will stay that way.
Are There Any Downsides?
Once veneers are in place, they are not reversible, but adjustments can be made, and even new veneers if necessary. For a few days after attachment, a little sensitivity to hot and cold food and drink will probably be experienced. And, although veneers are strong, it’s advisable to be sensible and not attempt to open beer bottles, or crack nuts or ice with your veneers!
If you are interested in improving the look of your teeth, you will need an appointment with a dentist who is an expert in veneers. You will receive a cosmetic analysis where you can discuss veneers and any other recommended options before giving your dentist the green light.
