Discolored, misaligned, chipped, broken, crowded, uneven, and misshapen teeth can get in the way of having the smile that you want. The time and cost associated with solving these problems can be huge. To address these problems you would need a tooth whitening procedure, orthodontics, and other cosmetic dentistry measures. These are not only expensive when combined, but they are also energy-sapping and time-consuming. However, there is a single dental correction procedure that will repair and correct these tooth defects, and also give you the perfect set of teeth you desire. It is called dental veneers.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your teeth’ appearance. They are custom-made cosmetic devices, made to bond to your teeth to correct or hide tooth defects.
Dental veneers are a popular and very powerful cosmetic dentistry technique used to correct problems in a single procedure. They save you the energy, time, and money spent on going for different procedures to correct your smile.
There are three major types of dental veneers, resin composite veneers, ceramic veneers, and porcelain veneers.
This veneer type is made with composite materials. It is cost-effective and can be fitted in just one dental visit, saving you the stress of numerous dental visits. It also requires less tooth preparation than other types of veneers. This is one of the most affordable veneer options available.
This type of veneer is made with porcelain material. In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are the most sought-after choice for tooth defect correction. Porcelain veneers are thinner and give the look and feel of the natural tooth. They are also very durable and last longer than other veneer types, lasting as long as fifteen years.
This type of veneer is made with ceramic materials and it is a very popular choice. It gives a natural appearance and is also durable. However, it can take longer to prepare and this requires additional dental visits. After getting ceramic veneers, you might also experience tooth sensitivity for a few days.
Dental veneers are extremely popular cosmetic dentistry procedures and are used to fix many common tooth problems or defects. These include:
Dental veneers normally require about three visits to the dentist before the process is complete. The first visit is for consultation, and the second and third are for the making and fitting of the veneers.
Your dentist in Frisco will reshape your teeth and take models and impressions they will then use to create your veneers. When your veneers are ready, they will be bonded to your teeth with the use of special dental cement.
