What are dental veneers?

If your tooth enamel gets damaged, dental veneers or porcelain veneers are used to replace it. Why are veneers so effective? The reason is due to their paper thinness and their ability to replicate the properties and qualities of your teeth’s natural enamel. They can be used to fix a variety of problems that may occur with your teeth.

What problems can be fixed by using dental veneers?

Dental veneers are suitable for a whole range of dental problems that may occur. Dentists use them extensively to fix minor breaks, cracks, discoloration, and chips in teeth. Dental veneers are often used instead dental crowns because veneers require only a small portion of your natural enamel to be removed. This also makes it a less invasive procedure. Also, if you want to make your smile whiter, straighten your teeth or correct minor bite and placement issues, veneers will be useful here too!

Are dental veneers suitable for everyone?

As already pointed out, dental veneers are a very versatile solution and in most cases can be used by almost everyone. In order to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for veneers you will have to go through an examination. Your mouth need to be in excellent condition and primed to replace your enamel with the veneers. If any problems occur during the process, they will be solved so that your veneers placement is seamless. On rare occasions, we can find people for whom veneers aren’t suitable. For them, other solutions will be explored.

How are dental veneers attached?

When dentists determine that you are an excellent candidate for dental veneers, you will proceed to choosing the color and shade that you want. The veneers will be custom made so that they fit you perfectly. Your tooth will be prepared by removing a portion of your enamel to make sure that the veneers fit flat against the rest of your tooth. Your temporary veneer will be then placed on your tooth.

After permanent veneers are ready, your dentist will fit them to your tooth. The dentist will also check that the color is right and that your bite isn’t affected. When everything is in sync the dentist will proceed to cementing the dental veneers to your teeth.
