The most significant cosmetic issues are often resolved by dental veneers. A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell which is placed on the front of your teeth or visible parts of teeth, so that any cosmetic issue may be masked.
Compared to dental crowns where tooth reduction is designated to cover all surfaces of the tooth, dental veneers touch only the facial surface of the damaged tooth. A minimal amount of tooth surface is removed but so much of the health of the tooth is preserved.
This treatment begins with the tooth preparation and then a dental impression is taken so that a cast or mould can be created from it. This cast or mould is then sent to the laboratory so that the veneers can be fabricated. Once completed, they are delivered to the patient and then cemented permanently with an appropriate cement or adhesive.
Properly designed and fabricated dental veneers will result in a complete smile makeover that is truly significant and impressive. With good oral hygiene and proper care, it will improve the appearance of your smile and increase your confidence for many years to come.
