More About Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin coverings that are fitted on the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. They mainly resemble your natural teeth since they are custom-made from resin composite or porcelain materials. Veneers help address problems such as stained, smaller-than-average teeth, broken, or cracked teeth. For more information about dental veneers, visit Frankart Family Dental.
Procedure for Dental Veneers
Veneer placement needs two appointments with the dentist. During the initial visit, the dentist will explain to you the various types of veneers available. Then they will guide you in selecting the best veneers for you based on your desired outcome and needs. The dentist will examine your teeth to determine whether you are a good candidate for veneers. They will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth and mouth and send them to the dental laboratory for manufacturing. The dentist will then prepare the tooth for veneer installation. Some of these preparations include trimming the enamel and shaping the tooth surface.
Molding a veneer takes up to one month, but it will be ready prior to the second appointment. During the second visit, your dentist will attach it to the tooth. The dentist will cement the coating firmly after positioning it appropriately. To harden it, they'll employ a unique light beam. The dentist will polish your teeth, remove any excess cement, and make any other necessary adjustments. As you become used to the veneers, you could feel a bit uncomfortable, but this will pass. It is also possible to feel the shell's roughness. The hard spots are caused by too much cement, but they will disappear in a few days.
How to Maintain Your Dental Veneers
It takes a short period for you to recuperate fully after dental veneer installation. It's important not to chew or bite hard items with your front teeth after getting veneers. Also, never open a package with your teeth. Make sure your teeth and gums are always clean by maintaining good oral hygiene practices. If you play contact sports, wear a sports mouth guard to protect your teeth and veneers. A night guard will also safeguard your teeth if you suffer from teeth clenching or grinding while asleep. A few weeks after veneer installation, you should visit your dentist to see how you're recovering.
Benefits of Veneers
Veneers enhance your teeth's appearance, giving you a gorgeous, radiant smile. Also, they make teeth look whiter by brightening them. Another benefit of veneers is that they are stain-resistant, especially porcelain veneers.
Veneers only require minimal shaping, as opposed to crowns, which require considerable shaping. The most crucial advantage of veneers is that they can correct a variety of cosmetic problems, including oddly shaped teeth, severe tooth discoloration, gaps between teeth, and fractured or chipped teeth. If appropriately maintained, veneers can last up to 10 years. However, their durability depends on the material used to manufacture them and how well you care for them.
