What Are Veneers Used For?

Dental veneers may help a person's teeth look better. They may be helpful for those seeking a long-term remedy for persistent cosmetic issues, particularly those that don't improve with other dental procedures like teeth whitening, braces, or retainers. Enamel, the tooth's thin protective outer layer, will normally be removed by the dentist during the insertion procedure. As a result, once the veneers are applied by the dentist, the patient cannot have them removed or decide not to use them. It is a more permanent procedure in comparison to other cosmetic teeth whitening or straightening options.

Why Do People Get Veneers?

In most cases, veneers are a late stage option after other cosmetic procedures have been unsuccessful. Veneers help to solve problems cause by, but not limited to:

  • Worn enamel: Tooth enamel wears down naturally over the years. From general wear and tear to stain build up from eating habits, enamel slowly degrades over time and can cause discoloration and poor tooth health. Veneers are perfect for correcting smiles affected by worn enamel.
  • Genetics: Teeth come in all shapes and sizes.
  • Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from the grinding/gnashing of teeth, and/or through general wear and tear. This can lead to bite issue in addition to cosmetic smile issues.
  • Discoloration: Stubborn tooth discoloration may not be fully correctable through teeth whitening In such cases, veneers can offer a simple, cosmetic solution.

How Does It Work?

As always, it begins with a consultation with your dentist at Peony Dental. The crucial diagnostic and examination stage of treatment will help detect any oral health issues that need to be resolved prior to the application of veneers. Additionally, your dentist will collaborate with you to choose the ideal color for your teeth from a unique shade chart. Imaging technology can give you a sneak peek at the outcomes you can expect, and before and after photos can show you examples of previous successful cases. Once the assessment is finished and a unique treatment plan has been created, treatment can start.

There are several steps in the procedure. It begins with a local anesthetic to ensure comfortability during the tooth preparation and veneer fitting processes. Your natural tooth will be minimally reshaped to fit the veneer.

If your treatment involves direct composite resin veneers, your dentist then will apply the appropriately shaded composite to your teeth, shape the material and harden it using a high intensity light. Additional layers of composite may be applied to build the veneer to the correct shape, length and form for your smile. When all composite is placed, the veneers will be finished and polished using burs and polishers to create a vital and lifelike smile.

If your treatment requires porcelain veneers, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth from which a mold of your mouth will be made. Your veneers will be constructed perfectly for your mouth and installed accordingly.
