What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells composed of tooth colored materials that are custom made and bonded to the surface of the tooth to enhance its appearance. With dental veneers, you can get perfectly aligned teeth that are pearly white or match your natural color. It’s a common method for smile makeover procedure.
Types of Veneers
· Made in a lab
· More resistant to stain compared to other materials
· Requires multiple visits to the dentist to get it done
2. Composite bonding
· Made of resin that is shaped and bonded to a tooth
· Only needs 1 appointment to remove a small amount of tooth structure and bond filling material
· Does not resist staining as well as porcelain veneers
The type that is best for you can be decided by the dentist. Usually, if the needed changes are minor and your teeth can still function properly, then composite bonding is a good option. Porcelain veneers are a preferred choice to fix teeth that are spaced, broken or stained.
How It Works
Porcelain veneers procedure is a multi-step process. After consultation, the dentist would explain how veneers will fit and work for you. X-rays or the impression of the teeth is needed to prepare the veneers. When the temporary veneers are done, a small amount of tooth structure is removed to fit the temporary veneers. The temporary veneers will be removed when your final veneers are done to be bonded to your teeth.
Composite bonding only requires 1 appointment to remove a small amount of tooth structure before bonding the filling material to your teeth.
