Veneers in Golden Smile Dent offer a consistently toned smile that looks natural and free of any stains, chips and gaps. A chipped, crooked, broken, stained, or gapped smile can result in the loss of self-confidence. Our team of dental professionals and specialists in cosmetic dentistry can easily rectify these issues with a porcelain veneer. Essentially, veneers are thin shells of ceramic material placed over the natural tooth surface that mimic the translucency of natural enamel, porcelain veneers are ideal for those seeking a revitalized smile.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are placed on the front of teeth to improve their appearance. They are often made of porcelain or resin composite materials and permanently bonded to your teeth.
Veneers can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic problems, such as chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.
Some people receive just one veneer for a chipped or broken tooth, but many receive six to eight veneers to achieve an even, symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are most often veneered.
Dental veneers are usually made of porcelain or composite resin and require intensive preparation. However, there are also “no-prep” veneers that are applied using a different procedure.
Traditional veneers involve grinding down the tooth structure and sometimes even removing part of the tooth – even beyond the enamel. This allows for proper placement, but it is also an irreversible procedure that can be painful and often requires local anesthesia.
Tooth reduction depends on your dental problems and the number of teeth affected. If multiple teeth are affected, the dentist may make a wax model to show you what the veneers would look like.
On the other hand, veneers may require some preparation or alteration of the teeth without pretreatment, but these changes are minimal.
If you choose composite veneers, your dentist will etch the surface of your tooth before applying a thin layer of the composite material to the prepared tooth.
Additional layers of composite may be required to achieve the desired appearance. Finally, your dentist cures the composite veneer with a special light.
These include options like Lumineers and Vivaneers, special brands of porcelain veneers. They take less time and are less invasive to use.
Instead of removing layers of tooth underneath the enamel, no-prep veneers only affect the enamel. In many cases, No-Prep veneers do not require local anesthesia or temporary veneers.
Some dentists first grind down your teeth and then take an impression of your teeth to create a mold. The impression is then sent to a lab that makes the porcelain veneers.
Once the veneer is ready, your dentist can place it on the prepared tooth and cement it into place. Until the permanent veneers come back from the lab, temporary veneers can be used.
In the meantime, other dentists can use CAD /CAM technology so a computer can design the veneer. Your dentist can make the actual veneer right in the office.
The process of having a porcelain veneer made and fitted is relatively simple and painless, often not requiring anaesthetics. First, during the preparation of your teeth, one of our dentist will remove about half a millimeter of your natural enamel. This will allow for the thickness of the veneer to cooperate with your bite and mouth.
Then, a mould of your teeth will be made, from which a skilled technician will carefully and diligently craft your custom veneers. Afterwards, the dentist will permanently bond the veneers to your teeth and ensure a precise and comfortable fit.
The biggest benefit of veneers is that they improve the appearance of your teeth, giving you a brighter and more even smile. Dental veneers are often used to treat the following cosmetic appearances:
Veneers can last for more than a decade, depending on the type of veneer you choose, making them a semipermanent investment that can make you more confident in your smile.
