Cosmetic dentistry is not a facade for celebrities anymore, its rapidly moving beyond that realm into the lives of normal people. More people are fantasying about superstar smiles and is depending on it for success in their professional outlook and social strata. Thanks to veneers, people can get just that, their dreamed about Hollywood Smile!
Dental veneers are the thin pieces of porcelain material that is used to cover the front surface of a tooth to improve the aesthetics and to protect the tooth’s surface from further damage. Ceramic Veneers are permanent and can improve the appearance of the teeth by changing the size, shape, colour or length.
Veneers is a really good option if you have the following conditions,
- Stained and discoloured teeth
- Teeth that are fractured, chipped or cracked on the surface
- Worn down teeth
- Uneven or misaligned teeth
- significant gaps between teeth
The colour for new veneers is determined by choosing from a shade guide shown by your local dentist in Dubai. The dentist will suggest a good shade for the veneers for the patient based on complexion, skin tone and the colour of surrounding teeth. This is often a very exhilarating time for a patient , especially if they have never had bright and white teeth before.
Once the colour or shade is agreed on, the dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth/teeth surface to apply the veneer. Thereafter, the dentist will take an impression of teeth so the veneers can be constructed.
When the veneers are ready, the dentist will place the ceramic veneer in place and ensure that it fits perfectly. Thereafter, the veneers are permanently cemented to the tooth’s surface using a curing light to assist in hardening the cement.
The dentist will then check to make sure if the tooth, edges and everything also about the tooth is smooth and that the bite is correct. The dentist might have to remove small portions of other teeth to achieve the perfect fit and result.
The after care for veneers is very basic, as dental veneers are designed to last between ten and fifteen years, flossing and brushing regularly to prevent tooth decay is required. Also regular dental cleanings and check-ups are a priority!
