Have you forgotten to smile? Or, is it your teeth that are keeping you from spreading that aura of your charming personality. If so, then stop worrying and start reading this blog to learn about Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers that can instantly give you a dazzling smile!

Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made thin shells of medical-grade ceramic tooth materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve your smile. They are attached to the front surface of the teeth for an immediate smile transformation.

Improve Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

If your teeth are chipped, discolored, stained, or misaligned, or have minor gaps between them, and they are keeping you from smiling confidently, then this is a sure thing for you.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

Many people prefer veneers as they think it’s more advantageous over other similar alternatives like teeth whitening, bonding, dental crowns, etc., which are meant for temporary relief while veneers serve longer, and in many cases a lifelong purpose.

Let’s have a look at their various benefits:

  • Stain Resistance: Made of non-porous medical-grade ceramic materials, they are highly resistant to stains and last longer.
  • Healthier Than Composite Resin: Cheaper alternatives of porcelain veneers like amalgam and resin or acrylic veneers are less hygienic as they build up more plaque in comparison to porcelain veneers. Also, the small amount of plaque that builds up on porcelain veneers is of healthier composition when compared to that of acrylics and amalgams.
  • Lifelike Appearance: These cosmetic enhancements are made from advanced material that closely resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel. They are made to match the precise color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  • Cheaper Than Dental Crowns: Although veneers typically cost more than bonding or teeth whitening, they are usually more affordable than dental crowns.
  • Lesser Treatment Shocks: Porcelain veneers demand less removal of tooth structure than cosmetic dental bonding or dental crowns.

The Treatment

The treatment is done in two stages. In the first stage, the dentist will examine your oral structure and the overall health of your mouth and gums. If suitable for treatment, he will remove a fine layer of enamel from the front of the teeth to be treated.

After that, he will take an impression of your teeth and place temporary acrylic veneers on them. In the second stage, after a week or two, when your permanent veneers are prepared, the dentist will replace your temporary acrylic veneers with the permanent ones.

In many cases, when the health and hygiene of teeth are deemed acceptable, the veneers can be performed in a single visit.

Who Is Eligible for the Treatment?

Patients with good periodontal and overall health, and who can commit to proper oral care and hygiene are good to go for the treatment.

If a prospective patient has conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and root canal infection then typically he/she doesn’t qualify for veneers. That’s because dentists usually remove a thin layer of enamel before placing veneers.

However, a good dentist will first make you go through an oral hygiene improvement session, and after you have regained your oral health, you will be eligible for the treatment.

Things to Take Care of After Treatment

After the treatment, there are a few precautions you must take to take care of your veneers.

Follow these steps to keep your veneers in top condition:

  • Routinely brush and floss to protect the longevity of your veneers.
  • Avoid habits such as nail biting, chewing ice, and using teeth to open packages as it can lead to cracks, chips, and dental erosion.
  • Keep up good oral care. It will help prevent gum disease and receding gums, which can compromise the appearance of your veneers.
  • Porcelain is non-porous, so it will be stain resistant, but the dental cement that holds it in its place is still subject to discoloration. Avoid stain-producing substances such as coffee, tea, soy sauce, and the most notorious culprit for staining, cigarettes.
  • Most importantly, visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
