Get back the shine on your stained, discoloured front teeth and improve the smile.
At Kishore Denatal, we construct dentures to look like natural teeth.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are a beautiful and conservative way to change the appearance of stained, discoloured front teeth and improve the aesthetics of a smile. However, they require maintenance and need be looked after.
Aesthetics Veneers are similar to crowns and are used to cover the outer surfaces of the teeth which are visible when you smile. They may be used if there is severe discoloration or damage to the external surfaces of the teeth, which cannot be corrected by cosmetic bonding.
Aesthetic veneers are custom made, with high precision to simulate the natural contour of a healthy tooth. Our experienced lab technician are able to add various details into the surface to match its shape and shade to the surrounding teeth.
Where can veneers be used?
Tooth veneers can be applied to achieve more results for:
Change in tooth colour
Teeth having a dull or yellowish colour, whether naturally or due to lifestyle choices (smoking, coffee, wine, etc.)
Alter the shape of teeth
Teeth can be naturally too small or too short, causing you to be self-conscious about smiling. This technique allows you to remodel the shape of your smile and efficiently even out differences.
Repair chipped teeth
Many people have small chips in their teeth which, although not medically problematic, they feel conscious of.
People who want to straighten teeth without braces may consider dental veneers. They can be used to remove gaps and correct misaligned or irregular teeth. However, this treatment is not recommended for younger patients since it removes so much healthy enamel and can’t be reversed. In these cases, orthodontic treatment is preferable.
Types in Dental Veneers
Composite veneers are often applied in one visit. The tooth surface is roughened with acid and then kept together with a bonding agent (glue) on the teeth.
then a composite material is bulit in thin layers, gradually forming the tooth to the required shape. The paste is hardened at each stage using a special lamp.
Once the look, colour and shape of the veneer are up to mark, the surface is polished so it looks and feels like a natural tooth.
When it comes to porcelain veneers, the process takes longer. This is because each veneer must be individually crafted in a laboratory. Expect this to take anywhere from 1-3 weeks.
After your teeth are filed down, your dentist will take a dental impression using putty. This imprint is used to ensure the veneers are a perfect fit. This mould will also be used to create a mask, if needed, to plan the end result where significant changes are being made to the shape or size of teeth.
You might be given temporary veneers at this point, to protect the prepared teeth while you await the permanent ones. Not all dentists offer a temporary option, though.
Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you will have your next appointment. Your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth again and use an acid to roughen the surface of both the tooth and the veneer. A strong dental adhesive is used to secure the caps in place.
