Cosmetic dentistry is a segment of the industry that uses all the latest developments in dental technology and expertise to offer patients assurance and greater self-confidence.
The latest dental developments deliver better results with less hassle than ever before. Invisalign straighteners improve the position of teeth while being far less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
The Zoom tooth whitening system is being widely used and delivering impressive results. There are even cases where more extensive treatments and appliances, like dentures and dental implants, have a positive cosmetic impact in addition to their health effect. Today dentistry isn’t just about keeping your mouth healthy; you can also rest assured that you’ll look your best.
A dental veneer is a thin piece of porcelain crafted to fit snugly on top of a patient’s natural teeth. The most common sorts of veneers cover only the outward-facing side of teeth, but full-surface veneers are also available. Veneers can help deal with the following issues:
Stained or discolored enamel
Gaps between teeth
Chipped or broken teeth
Fitting veneers typically requires two or three visits to your cosmetic dentist’s office. The process requires consultation, preparation, and then veneer installation. Consultation is the process of verifying that veneers will meet your needs. To prepare for veneers, your dentist will need to remove a thin layer of tooth enamel. The affected teeth also need to have molds taken so that your veneers will fit them perfectly. While your veneers are being created, your dentist will provide a temporary appliance to protect your teeth and keep your smile looking sharp until your veneers are ready for the final installation.
When it’s time to install veneers, the surface of your teeth is chemically roughened in order to make them more receptive to the adhesives used to attach your veneers. These specialized glues will bond your veneers permanently to your teeth.
Once the adhesive dries, it leaves behind a durable bond that will allow you to treat your covered teeth in the same way as your natural ones. Eating, brushing, and every other part of your oral hygiene routine continues as normal once your veneers have been installed. The porcelain veneers are made of is just as durable as natural enamel, if not more so. You’ll experience more self-confidence than ever before once you have shiny white teeth you can trust in every social situation.
Veneers are not a universal solution for every cosmetic dental need. If you’d like to be more confident in your smile, though, they’re definitely worth discussing with your dentist.
