Have you been less than satisfied with the appearance of your smile? Is a tooth deeply discoloured? Do you have a chipped or cracked tooth, or an uneven tooth? Is there a small gap when you smile?
Many of these situations can be remedied with the help of dental veneers. The main question is therefore what amazing advantages these veneers can provide — as well as what you can expect during the procedure itself. Let us endeavour to answer both of these logical questions.
What Exactly Are Veneers?
You can think of veneers are permanent “masks” for your teeth. Comprised of either porcelain or resin, these thin shells will be bonded directly to the front of one or more teeth. Veneers are often employed to address minor cosmetic or aesthetic issues and they have become increasingly popular thanks to their versatility.
Is the Procedure Painful?
No, it’s not painful in the least! The dentist will take a mould of your teeth. The moulds are then sent to a laboratory that will manufacture the veneers.
The dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel to accommodate the veneer’s thickness. The veneers are finally cemented to these surfaces with a very strong bonding agent. You will be happy to know that this procedure is normally free from any pain or discomfort.
What Results Can You Expect to Achieve?
The great thing about veneers is that the results will be seen immediately after the procedure has been completed.
Not only can you enjoy a massively improved smile, but the chances are high that your self-confidence will significantly improve. If you have grown tired of shying away from group photos and similar opportunities, it’s time to speak with your dentist to learn more.
The bottom line is that veneers represent some of the latest and most impressive advancements within dentistry. Regardless of your age, these tiny shells can give you truly amazing and permanent results if cared for properly.
