Are you still avoiding smiling at photos or embarrassed on a date because of bad teeth? Modern dentistry offers a quick and effective solution to change the situation — which is called veneers.
Veneers is a way to a perfect smile
Veneers are thin overlays with a thickness of 0.2-0.5 mm designed to cover the external tooth surface. They are made from composite, ceramic, or zirconium oxide materials. They have high light transmittance, allowing the teeth to look natural. Theoretically, veneers can be installed on the entire dentition; however, most often, patients choose the “smile line” — 10 upper and 8 lower teeth. The procedure is painless and not takes much time.
Their primary purpose is aesthetics
Veneers are called to mask such defects as yellowed teeth, the inhomogeneous color of enamel after taking medications and exposure to chemicals, irregular single teeth, teeth of abnormal shape, cracks, chips, other enamel defects, voids between teeth as a result of gum recession, large gaps between teeth, diastemas, tremas.
The smile people dream of is called a Hollywood one for a reason. It refers to the cinema factory. In the 40s of the last century, American actors glued white plates to their teeth. Materials of those times allowed to keep an effect only a few hours. Nowadays, the technology of installing veneers has reached the highest level, crowding out the usual methods of tooth restoration.
Veneers are fit only for healthy teeth
That’s why you should cure dental caries or other disorders, treat periodontal tissues. Afterward, it’s necessary to carry out professional toothbrushing, remove tartar and plaque and prepare teeth for veneers installation.
Veneers do require some cutting off the teeth
As they need some place to be installed, tooth enamel is slightly scraped away. But the keyword here is “slightly” — it’s about 0.1-0.3 millimeters, which in fact is like a scratch on the tooth. At the same time, the cement on which the veneers are attached contains fluorine, which has a beneficial effect on the enamel under them.
Dental technicians make an accurate model of teeth based on the cast model.
Ceramic veneers on the front teeth can be made in two ways. The first is the method of layer-by-layer application of porcelain. The second one is injection molding at high temperature under pressure. The technician chooses the one according to the patient’s preferences.
Zirconia veneers are made based on a three-dimensional computer model of a tooth.
The final stage is fixing this capson the patient’s teeth. For gluing, the doctor uses cement pastes of different shades, experimentally selecting the one that is as close as possible to the natural color of the teeth. When the optimal color is found, the veneer is fixed.
