People who don’t smile much are often seen as unfriendly. However, if you’re just too ashamed of your teeth to smile, people might have the wrong impression of you. Dental veneers is a dental treatment that can be the game-changer for your oral health.
Dental veneers, sometimes called porcelain veneers, is a cosmetic procedure that uses porcelain chips to cover the front surface of your teeth. Here are other facts that you need to know about veneers:
Veneers can help patients with stained teeth due to fluoride treatments, medications, or acidic foods and drinks. The treatment can also change the shape of teeth and improves the appearance of chipped, broken, or worn down teeth. Veneers are also a good solution for the gaps between your teeth making you smile with a bright, complete and perfectly-shaped set of teeth.
Porcelain veneers may require two appointments with your dentist to complete the treatment. During the first appointment, your teeth will be prepared by etching off a thin layer of the tooth enamel on the front surface of your tooth. An impression will be taken and temporary veneers will be placed to protect your prepared teeth.
The impression will then be used at the dental lab to build your customized veneers. The actual veneers will be placed on your teeth and bonded with permanent cement on your next appointment.
You simply need to care for your teeth as you normally would by brushing and flossing regularly. Other than biting your nails or using your teeth in tearing up things, there are no other restrictions set for your veneers.
