If you’re ashamed of your teeth, you don’t have to be. You can fix their appearance with dental veneers. These thin shells, usually made of porcelain, fit over your existing teeth to cover and improve the look of the front surface.
Dental veneers: what are the benefits?
Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dental treatment that fix discoloured, worn-down, chipped, broken, uneven, misaligned, and irregular-shaped teeth. They can make your teeth look regular and make and your smile look better than ever.
Dental veneers can change the length, shape, and size of your teeth – completely improving your grin. This is a huge confidence boost for most people.
How dental veneers work
To prepare your teeth for veneers, a small amount of enamel is trimmed from them, about ½ a millimetre. Dr. Patel will then make an impression of the involved teeth, which is sent to a lab for veneer construction. This takes 1-2 weeks. During this time, you may have temporary veneers. When your permanent veneers are bonded to your teeth, our dentist will trim them for a perfect fit, then clean and etch the tooth to receive the veneer, which is cemented in place (etching allows the cement to make a stronger bond). A special light makes the cement chemically react and harden, giving a permanent bond.
