Tooth veneer options are among the most popular and successful choices for changing and improving the look of your smile. More commonly known as porcelain veneers, or porcelain laminate veneers and crowns, they are covers that are bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve the positioning of teeth as well as the shape and color.
Porcelain laminate veneers make a dramatic, immediate difference to both your smile and appearance. This makes them one of the top selections for addressing a variety of dental problems caused by disease, trauma, or lifestyle. A request for laminate veneers might come about after teeth become discolored. Other common reasons people seek veneers include the need for correcting
- the gap between the two front teeth,
- worn, chipped or broken teeth,
- uneven, misaligned, or irregular teeth.
The advantages that porcelain veneers have over bonding teeth is that they offer longevity and are more resistant to staining. Porcelain also has a light reflecting quality similar to that of natural teeth.
Every tooth veneer is custom designed so that it fits naturally and comfortably over the tooth. Preparation means taking impressions and having the dental lab fabricate the veneers. Also, this process requires minor removal of the tooth structure so that there is room for the veneers to fit properly.
Once placed, dental resins are used to permanently attach the veneers to the teeth. They are then cured using the Argon Curing Laser, which helps to create a stronger, longer-lasting bond between the veneer and your tooth. In the majority of cases, the application of veneers can be performed without anesthetic. You’ll be amazed to see how closely they resemble natural teeth.
