Having that perfect smile can be quite the reward and it does not have to cost a fortune! Thanks to dental veneers.
Cosmetic dentistry has changed dramatically and become more popular throughout the years. Dental veneers are popular as they require low maintenance and very little changes to the existing teeth. Only good oral hygiene maintenance as brushing and flossing is needed (unless chipping occurs) once treatment is finished.
So what exactly are veneers?
Veneers are ceramic (generally made of porcelain) ultra-thin shells which are fitted onto the front of the existing teeth. Due to the simplicity of the procedure, veneer treatment requires little to no anaesthesia. Porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting up to 10-20 years and require very little maintenance.
The overall treatment of veneers is made of 3 visits:
1st Visit- Initial consultation for a smile assessment and discussion of options and desired result.
2nd Visit– Preparation begins with fitting of teeth (when needed). Impressions are also taken in order to prepare the permanent veneers.
3rd Visit– Involves fitting or placement of veneers.
Cosmetic veneers are now very affordable and are nowadays used to address a vast variety of dental issues including:
- Malformed teeth – broken, chipped or severely worn teeth can be resolved with veneers.
- Discoloured teeth- properties within veneer materials can completely hide the discolouration of teeth.
- Teeth gaps – individuals with irregular gaps between their teeth can undergo veneer treatment where gaps are filled giving teeth a natural spaced smile.
- Crooked teeth- teeth with irregular shapes, slightly crooked or improperly positioned can be adjusted with the help of veneers.
