Well, here's what you need to know. Veneers are an awesome cosmetic procedure that improves your smile. Not to be confused with crowns, veneers are bonded to the surface of teeth and not placed over them like a cap.
Veneers have a long life expectancy and, unlike other cosmetic procedures, has excellent color stability. They are also highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking.
So, how are veneers made?
First, your dentist creates a mold of your teeth and sends them to a dental lab technician to create your custom veneers. When veneers matching the color of the rest of your teeth arrives, your dentist will first remove some enamel off the surface of teeth to make space to accommodate the shell.
Afterward, the dentist cements veneers on the surface of your teeth and uses a special curing light to dry the adhesion used to attach veneers on your teeth and, finally, lightly buffs the veneers to create a polished look.
The great thing about veneers is that they don't only fix dental issues, they are also used to beautify your teeth, hence why they're a "cosmetic procedure." If, for example, you want to change the shape of your teeth, you can opt for rounder edged teeth or go for a more square-edged veneer.
Whatever your preference, make sure you speak with your Rigby dentist. Some other issues the custom-made thin pieces of porcelain can also help with are:
- oddly shaped
- unevenly spaced
