Veneers

What is it?

Veneers are a thin shell made out of porcelain or composite material. They are custom made and can be used to treat dental conditions such as discoloured, crooked or chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to cover spaces between teeth.

The procedure of getting veneers is a relatively simple one that can be finished over two visits.

The dentist removes a tiny amount of tooth surface so that when the veneers are applied, they don’t feel big and bulky. The first visit is when impressions are taken of your tooth so that the newly made veneer has your size and shape. The next step is to simply apply the veneer to the tooth.

Veneers sometimes come away from the tooth or break if the tooth is knocked. They can sometimes be glued back on but will have to be replaced if they are damaged.

Benefits

Veneers can greatly improve your appearance. They hide imperfections and you loose very little natural tooth material. They also protect teeth from any more damages. Tooth surface can be dissolved away by acid in the mouth [usually from too much of certain foods and drink], this can make teeth very sensitive to hot and cold and it is in this situation that veneers can protect the teeth.

 If the tooth is strong, a veneer if often the better option than a crown for improving a tooth’s appearance.
