A veneer is a durable wafer-thin cover in front of a tooth to correct cosmetic defects like spaces between teeth, broken or cracked teeth, irregular or worn edges of the tooth, and teeth that seem minor, profoundly stained, and deformed teeth. Veneers comprise custom-made shells that are tinted to match your neighboring teeth.
Dental veneers are made of porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers hold out against stains much better than resin veneers and look almost like natural teeth.
Veneers can fix discolored teeth stains caused by tetracycline or excessive fluoride. Teeth that are broken, crooked, way too broken, or irregularly shaped, or the teeth that have space between them can also be fixed.
Veneers take two dental visits. In the first visit, a small portion of the surface material is prepared and removed to fit in the veneer. In the dental lab, the impression of the tooth is customized and crafted. It is then blended to match your natural teeth. A temporary veneer will be applied for a while to protect the tooth until the permanent veneer is made.
In the second visit, the tooth surface is cleaned carefully, and the temporary veneer will be removed before the permanent veneer. The permanent veneer is then fixed with the help of a reliable bonding agent. At last, the veneer will be polished to fit perfectly and appear great.
It isn’t hard to care for veneers. You must brush it regularly and floss around the tooth, just as you care for your natural teeth. You need to see your dentist for regular checkups, ensuring that the veneers are firmly attached to the tooth surface.
Veneers are solid and can last for many years if maintained well. You can even expect your surfaces to stay for a decade or more. It needs general care, like regular brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash, and routine dental visits. Please avoid chewing ice or hard candy, as it can affect your surfaces, just like it affects your natural teeth.
