Introduction to Veneers
Used widely in cosmetic dentistry nowadays, a veneer is a thin layer of material placed over the front visible tooth surface which can improve the colour, shape and size of the tooth. It is almost like a false fingernail. The appearance of a tooth can be dramatically improved by a dental veneer restoration. Discoloured, misshapen teeth can be permanently whitened and improved with a veneer.
There are two main types of material used to make a veneer; composite and porcelain
A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a lab, and later bonded to the tooth using special cement. They don’t require reduction of your own tooth structure and are non invasive. They could be made during one visit. Composite veneers are also cheaper than porcelain veneers and within years they could stain.
Porcelain veneers are somewhat more durable, have better aesthetics, and less likely to stain.You can revitalize your smile, very quickly.
If your teeth are chipped or stained, include an unsightly gap, or have been ground down, and you are ready for a change, you should consider a Smile Makeover. In just one visit you can look years younger with beautiful, custom veneers from Dr. Peter Korpal
