It is not uncommon for people to be self-conscious about their teeth. If you have discolored, damaged, or misshapen teeth you may tend to avoid smiling around people and in public situations, which can cause emotional distress and low self-esteem. Porcelain veneers make it possible to improve your smile, and your confidence, in just a few simple office visits. They look extremely natural and are virtually undetectable.
The lifelike quality of porcelain veneers makes them comparable to your natural teeth. Because your veneers will be created in a dental laboratory, they will closely match your other teeth, which makes them undetectable to the untrained eye. Not only do veneers improve your aesthetics, they also help improve the natural function of your teeth and mouth by creating a more stable bite surface.
How Do They Work
Once it has been determined that veneers may be beneficial to you, you will come in for your initial appointment, and your cosmetic dental professional will carefully remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of the teeth being treated, to make room for your veneers to be attached. The thickness of the amount of enamel removed is usually between 0.3 to 0.5 millimeters, or less. An impression will then be taken of your newly shaped teeth to be sent off to a lab for construction of your porcelain veneers. Once they are created, you will come back for a second visit, where your dentist will create tiny grooves on your teeth’s surfaces to improve adhesion. Lastly, a bonding agent will be applied to secure your new veneers, which will be carefully and skillfully set to blend in with the contour of your smile.
