Dental veneers - or porcelain veneers - are thin, wafer-like shells of porcelain used to alter or recreate the natural look of the teeth. It is bonded to the front surface of the tooth, providing it with extra strength and resilience to natural tooth enamel. Veneers are the best way to replicate picture perfect teeth, making it easy to understand its popularity among Hollywood celebrities.
Veneers are excellent alternatives to dental crowns, in many situations. They provide a more conservative approach to changing the colour, shape and size of the tooth. It can also be used to mask undesirable defects, such as stained or damaged teeth, making it ideal for masking discoloured fillings in front teeth. Generally, veneers last for many years, and the technique provided remarkable longevity when performed correctly. However, each mouth is different, and veneers need to be carefully researched before it is considered.
Visiting Veeran Dental and asking about veneers is the first step in determining if veneers are the right option for you, or if there are alternative solutions available that might be more effective in your specific case. Communication with Dr Veeran is critical for a successful result, so spend time identifying what cosmetic improvements you want to accomplish.
