Teeth help you enhance your personality and overall appeal. But mal-alignment or malfunctioning of teeth can even ruin your smile. A recent study shows that nearly 80% of us are not satisfied with our smiles. If you are unhappy with your smile, then Porcelain / Ceramic veneers may just be right for you. Unlike crowns, veneers are wafer thin layers of extremely strong porcelain. When bonded to your teeth, they can create a natural looking beautiful new surface.
To increase your appeal you can just replace the visible surface of your chipped, discolored, uneven teeth, or broken teeth with veneers and feel the instant improvement making a big difference.
So, how do you achieve this?
You first could consult us to find out if the Ceramic Veneers are right for you. This would include a discussion of your goals and objectives and what you like and dislike about your smile. Ceramic Veneers can correct various aesthetic problems like,
- Improve size, colour and shape of your teeth,
- Close spaces between teeth, as well as
- Lengthen or shorten your teeth.
There are 2 types of Ceramic Veneers: No-Prep and Traditional. Traditional Veneers are the most resourceful and commonly used technique. It involves removal of a small portion of the surface enamel, making room for a new layer of ceramic. No-Prep veneers do not involve any surface removal and these ultra-thin layers of ceramic are bonded to the surface of the teeth. However, there are limitations to this procedure. We will advise you on which type is best for you. At times, a blend of both techniques might be required. There are even ways to pre-view your new smile before the final work is done. Once we have agreed on a treatment plan, we will work with a skilled laboratory technician to artistically create each veneer. Sometimes, teeth whitening and minor orthodontics may also help in achieving the optimal result.
Be assured that the procedure is completely painless and can be completed in as little as 2 visits. Best of all, your new veneer should appear completely natural. Although they are super strong, they are not indestructible. You should avoid hard and sticky food. With proper care, your dental veneers should last for 20 years or more.
