Veneer treatment is recommended for covering damaged or discolored tooth, and correction of distorted shape and contours. It is also a suitable alternative for fractured teeth or gaps between teeth. Superficial stains that cannot be treated by tooth whitening or bleaching are covered by dental veneers. Veneers are custom designed for individual patients and replicate the original tooth as closely as possible. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke.
Porcelain laminate veneers comprise of several thin ceramic layers. To apply a veneer, a thin layer of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is essential to avoid a bulky oversized tooth and retain aesthetic and functional appeal of the tooth. A light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a curing light.
The treatment may take two or three sessions of 30 minutes to an hour. The cost can vary depending on the nature of treatment. A dental veneer is not a reversible treatment. Dental veneers are strong and durable, however, they can be brittle and extreme stress or pressure should be avoided.
Initially, porcelain veneers are sensitive to extreme temperature variations but, this sensitivity subsides within a few days. Maintaining porcelain veneers are quite simple with routine brushing and flossing. Grinding or clenching can damage your veneers.
You should also return to your dentist for regular follow-ups and care.
