Veneers are usually made out of porcelain by a dental technician. You will have to visit us more than once for this type of veneer. We will check any fillings in the teeth first. A very small amount of natural tooth needs to be removed – just enough to prevent the veneer from making the tooth look or feel to bulky. For this reason, it may be necessary to numb the tooth. preparation time will depend on how damaged to tooth is and whether it needs to built up with a filling first. We use a putty-like material to make a mould of your mouth called an impression so the dental technician cantell the shape and size of veneer to make for you. We then glue the veneer made by the technician to the tooth when you next visit . Veneers sometimes come away from the tooth or break if the tooth is knocked or if you clench or grind your teeth. They can sometimes be glued back on but will have to be replaced if they are damaged. Occasionally sensitivity or death of the nerve can occur. Sometime veneers are built up on the tooth directly using the same material that is used for white fillings. The surface of the tooth is roughened with a mild acid. Then the white filling is applied in layers until the teeth look right.
What are the benefits?
Veneers can greatly improve your appearance. They hide imprefections, and you lose very little natural tooth Material. Veneers can also protect teeth from any more damage. Tooth surface can be dissolved away by acid in the mouth (usually from too frequent consumption of certain kinds of food and drink); this make teeth very sensitive to hot and cold. In this situation, veneers can protect the teeth. If the tooth is strong, a veneers is often a better option than a crown for improving a tooth’s appearance.
