In case you are searching for a way to enhance your smile due to dental imperfections including cracks and chips, porcelain veneers will be a good option for you. With porcelain veneer options, it’s simple to create a gorgeous new smile and is much less invasive than having crowns placed. Most veneers are done for aesthetic value, though they may be part of an overall therapy plan.
Porcelain veneers are what?
A porcelain veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that is placed on top of the enamel to conceal stains, chips, misalignments, and more. Each porcelain veneer is designed to fit the patient’s mouth exactly. It depends on the person receiving the porcelain veneer how different it is for them. There’s no one-size-fits-all type of porcelain veneer.
Preparation and Impressions
At your first consultation with your dentist you are more likely to experience a combination of discussion and preparation. Getting decided that porcelain veneers are a great option for you, your dentist can begin preparation for a complete set of porcelain veneers.
Let the name preparation make you scared. It is a minimally invasive process that requires you and your dentist to discuss the kind of smile you prefer and determine the shade of your veneers. Your dentist could take x-rays to determine the well being of your enamel first. If any work has to be performed on the patient’s teeth before preparation and impressions are taken, this must be carried out beforehand.
Once your teeth’s enamel is polished to a glossy sheen, they can be fully prepared for the overlay to be placed on top. The amount of enamel to be removed is just about 0.5mm. After that, impressions can be taken of the enamel you intend to use veneers on.
A porcelain veneer requires an actual impression of your enamel in order to match it perfectly to yours.
A few weeks, possibly even a month, it could take for your everlasting veneers to be produced. For the interim, I can provide you with a temporary veneer to protect your teeth till your permanent ones are created. When your permanent veneers arrive from the lab, they’ll be coupled with a particular adhesive. Your dentist will schedule your follow-up appointments and inform you about aftercare procedures.
