Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to reproduce the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural teeth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those searching to make slight position change, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
You will often hear people say that celebrities have veneers and this may seem like the optimum way to reproduce picture-perfect teeth, but each mouth is apart and veneers need to be carefully researched. Your family dentist will most likely begin with a smile analysis to determine what steps are necessary to achieve the smile you wish..
Hows & Whys of Veneers
Veneers consist of a compilation of various thin ceramic layers which change original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, a very tiny amount of the original teeth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is necessary as it creates room for the veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original teeth. The bond between prime teeth and veneer is delicate as it not only provides the esthetic perfection desired, but also a powerful bond which is necessary for correct veneer function. Light-sensitive resin is placed between the original teeth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light. Veneers are a very prosperous option in many situations where the original teeth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a best choice for fractured tooth, gaps between tooth, and in some states where the teeth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related issues. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to teeth whitening or bleaching. In these states, a veneer may be the optimum option.
