How Veneers Work
A veneer is a thin sheet of porcelain permanently bonded on the front of your teeth, mainly to cover their natural color. However, a veneer can also be used to change the shape or the positioning of your teeth. It can be fixed for a single tooth or multiple teeth.
Veneers don’t work the same for everyone; remember you are unique. Therefore, don’t admire someone else and desire to be like them. You have to be assessed by the doctor, and a treatment procedure is designed according to your needs. It works for you to bring a better you.
Problems that Dental Veneers Fix
Veneers can be used to fix discolored teeth due to excessive fluoride, large resin fillings, root canal treatment, and stains from drugs, among other reasons. Other problems fixable by veneers include:
- Worn out teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Teeth with gaps
- Misaligned or uneven teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
Diagnosis and Treatment Procedure
Having a veneer fixed on your teeth usually requires three appointments; consultation, preparation, and bonding.
During a consultation, your provider examines your teeth to ensure that you are the right candidate for veneers. At this time, you can explain the results you are looking forward to achieving. The specialist should discuss the procedure and relay any other relevant information during this appointment.
For preparations, Dr. Samet can remove little enamel and take an impression of your mouth and teeth to be taken to the lab. The veneers are then customized and created in the lab and tested before they are cemented. This can involve placing it on your teeth to examine if it matches. It can be removed and trimmed repeatedly until the best fit is achieved. The color is also adjustable using cement’s shade.
For a strong bonding, your tooth is cleaned, polished, and etched. A special cement is then used to fix the veneer on your teeth, then hardened using a special light beam. Any excess glue is removed, and your bite is checked, and adjustments made where necessary.
