Here are some frequently asked questions about veneers.
How do dental veneers enhance one's smile?
Dental veneers can enhance a person's smile by addressing various cosmetic concerns. They can change the colour of teeth, improve their shape, adjust their size, or alter their length. Veneers provide a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result.
How do you prepare for a tooth veneer?
In order to prepare a tooth for a veneer, the dentist will reshape the surface of the tooth, removing an amount of enamel that is approximately equal to the thickness of the veneer to be applied. Together, you and your dentist will determine whether to numb the area before this enamel trimming process. Following that, the dentist will create a model or impression of your tooth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory responsible for crafting the veneer. Typically, it takes about 2-4 weeks for the veneers to be manufactured and returned from the laboratory. Meanwhile, temporary dental veneers can be used as a temporary solution.
How long is a dental veneer procedure?
Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can undergo the veneering process at the same time.
What are dental veneers made of?
Dental veneers are typically made of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are highly durable, stain-resistant, and mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. Composite resin veneers are less expensive.
