What are Veneers?
Veneers are a skeletal coat of ceramic which is bonded to the exterior of a tooth to improve its position, shade and shape – and, in turn, the overall aesthetics of your smile..
Porcelain laminates or veneers are similar to gel or acrylic fingernails and are used to close the spaces, cover the satin or any discoloration, plaster chipping, set the damaged or crooked tooth.
For what treatments and problems are Veneers used?
There are many reasons behind why a patient chooses for treatment that involves dental veneers:
- Stained teeth: The teeth that are badly stained that will not be improved by teeth whitening or by prophylex treatment. This works perfectly to cover any stains that exist on the teeth.
- Damaged teeth: The badly worn out teeth due to intense grinding or because of carbonated drinks, including those that have been broken or chipped can be mended through veneers. A small chip on teeth can rapidly be corrected via composite bonding, which is known as “composite veneers”.
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
- Diastemas (gaps) or Gaps-spaces that occur between the teeth can be closely closed by using the dental veneers which will give a uniform-looking smile.
- Crooked teeth: Veneers may offer a solution in this case, though other options are available.
For teeth that are not severely crooked, veneers placed over their front surface will give a straight and perfectly aligned-looking smile. For this type of treatment, many people refer to veneers as “Instant Orthodontics”, as you get a similar end result in a fraction of the time.
