Dental Veneers

Close up 3D rendering of a thin porcelain veneer being applied to a toothVeneers are thin coatings that are put on the front teeth in order to enhance their appearance. They are custom crafted from porcelain or resin composite materials to look like your actual teeth. Dental veneers are an excellent solution to discolored, damaged, small-than-average, or chipped teeth. Visit Lombard Smiles for more details about dental veneers.

Dental Veneers Procedure

During your first appointment, your dentist will let you know the different types of veneers available. They will help you choose the appropriate veneer for you, depending on your teeth's needs and the desired results. The dentist will then assess your teeth to see if veneers are a good fit for you. The dentist will conduct X-rays and imprints of your mouth and teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory for veneer manufacturing. Afterward, the tooth or teeth will be prepared for veneer placement, including shaping the tooth surface and trimming the enamel.

The veneer manufacturing can take up to four weeks and will be ready before your second visit. During your second visit, the dentist will place it on your tooth. Once the shell is positioned correctly, the dentist will firmly cement it. They'll use a special light beam to harden it. Your teeth will be polished by the dentist, who will remove any extra cement and make any other required modifications. You may have some discomfort as you adapt to the veneers, but this will pass. The roughness of the shells can also be felt. Excess cement is to blame for the hard places, but they will fade away after a few days.

Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers

The time it takes for dental veneers to recuperate fully is shorter. Once you get the veneers, don't use your front teeth to chew or bite hard foods. Instead, use your molars and premolars, and never open a package with your teeth. Keep your teeth and gums clean at all times by practicing good dental hygiene. Wear a sports mouthguard to safeguard your teeth and veneers if you participate in contact sports. A nightguard will also protect your shells if you clench or grind your teeth at night. You should visit your dentist a few weeks after the veneer placement to check on your recovery.

Veneer Benefits

Dental veneers provide you with a beautiful, bright smile by improving the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can brighten brown teeth and make them appear whiter. Most dental veneers are stain-resistant, particularly porcelain veneers.

Unlike crowns, which need more shaping, veneers only necessitate moderate shaping. The most significant benefit of veneers is that they can address a wide range of cosmetic issues such as severe tooth discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, oddly shaped teeth, and gaps between teeth. Veneers can last up to ten years if properly maintained. The material used to make them and how well you care for them determine how long they can last.
