Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that can change the look of your teeth. Veneers are thin porcelain laminates that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. Veneers come in several different designs such as porcelain, enamel, composite, and composite bonding. They also come in various textures such as soft, medium, and hard. Many people who need veneers are those who have cracked or chipped teeth.
In dentistry, veneers is simply a thin layer of porcelain material placed on top of a damaged tooth. Veneers may enhance the aesthetic appearance of an individual’s smile and safeguard the surface of the tooth from further damage. Some people choose to get dental veneers for their teeth because they cover gaps in missing teeth or alignments that do not meet in the teeth. Dental veneers can also be used to correct minor imperfections in the formation of the teeth. Sometimes the process of teeth reshaping is not sufficient to correct a chipped, misaligned, or misshapen tooth. Veneers provide a more permanent solution to the problem.
Veneers are typically used on teeth that require extensive cleaning or repairs prior to having a cosmetic veneers procedure performed. Before getting any type of cosmetic veneers procedure done, it is recommended that you make an appointment to have your teeth cleaned and repaired. You should also go through a routine teeth cleaning regime. At your first consultation, your orthodontist should determine whether or not you may require veneers and he may suggest a specific procedure that would be appropriate for you.
