Why do people get veneers?
Dental veneers can resolve crooked, broken, chipped or discoloured teeth – giving you back the confidence of a smile makeover.They can be used to correct spacing, teeth rotations, minor crowding or the shape of your teeth. Veneers can correct most aesthetic issues you might have with your smile.
What is the procedure for getting a dental veneer?
The first step is a consultation with your dentist to outline your goals and concerns. X-rays or impressions of your teeth may be needed. The second step is to prepare the tooth for the veneer. Your dentist roughens the surface of the tooth and an impression is made. Your dentist will then place temporary veneers. At the next appointment, temporaries are removed, and the final veneer is bonded to your tooth.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
The preparation of veneers preserves the most amount of tooth structure, as very little needs to be removed. They can improve the appearance of your teeth, and gum tissues respond well to dental veneers. The colour can be custom selected, and in the case of porcelain veneers, they are stain resistant.
How long do dental veneers last on teeth?
Typically, a veneer lasts approximately 5-10 years. They do not require any special care other than regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist. If they are properly cared for then they can last much longer. Professional cleanings every 6 months and yearly exams are highly recommended.
How many veneers do I need?
A dentist consultation is needed to determine how many veneers are required. It is a good idea to have an even number of veneers. Six, eight, ten or twelve veneers give the best aesthetic results.
