Dental veneers are a highly recommended solution to help you improve your smile and achieve the look you desire. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshapen teeth.
Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to the surface of the teeth to give it a more classically shaped look. The professional team at Mouth Dental offer a variety of the highest quality dental veneer options to choose from. Talk to your dentist about what’s best for you.
It is a simple cosmetic treatment which can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:
Veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin material. Your dentist will help you choose the material that is best for you. Each type of veneer has its own benefits.
A porcelain veneer is a thin layer shell that is custom-made to fit your tooth.
A composite resin veneer is made from a tooth-colored filling material bonded to the tooth.
Benefits of porcelain veneers:
Benefits of composite resin veneers:
Each veneer is created to meet the patient’s individual requirements. Porcelain veneers are made in a laboratory and then bonded on the teeth. With composite resin, the dentist layers the resin onto each tooth.
Porcelain veneer procedures often require two separate visits. During the first appointment, the dentist trims a tiny amount of enamel off the teeth. This creates space for the veneer placement.
Next, they will make an impression of your teeth. The dentist will also determine your natural tooth colour. This shade information is then sent to the lab.
The lab will use this impression and shade to create your veneers. Temporary veneers may be placed while they wait for the permanent set.
When the permanent veneers are ready, the dentist removes the temporary ones and will thoroughly examine the new veneers to ensure a perfect fit. Thereafter, the dentist will bond the veneer to your tooth and ‘’cure’’ it with a special light for about 60 seconds. This ensures that the veneers are firmly affixed to the tooth. If there’s any extra material, the dentist will remove it with special instruments.
If numbing is required, discuss with your dentist the possibility of using a method of dental numbing for the first part of the veneer process. Once you are numb, you shouldn’t feel any pain. Most patients who have two to four veneers experience little to no pain after the procedure.
Patients who have eight or more veneers may feel some soreness in the gums and maybe the jaw. This discomfort is usually mild and relieved with over-the-counter medication
On average, the porcelain veneers process from consultation to final placement takes around 3 weeks
The average lifespan of porcelain veneers is 10 years, but it’s not uncommon for them to last up to 20 years with good care and maintenance. Composite veneers last an average of 3 years.
