What are Veneers?
Dental Veneers: are made to measure, thin, made of shell-like material, with a natural tooth colour, designed to fit over the front of teeth to increase the aesthetic look.
The shell-like material is strongly bonded to the front of the tooth and can be used to completely change the look, including, colour, shape and size.
Veneers are made from either of two types of material:
a) resin composite OR
The pocelain type are better at resisiting stains than the resin and also look more natural when relecting the light.
The composite resin type veneers are thinner allowing less of the tooth's surface to be removed.
You can discuss the best choice of material for you with our dental specialist at the time of your treatment.
The tooth veneer treatment normally requires 2 to 3 visits to the dentist with the porcelain type needing up to 10 days to finish.
However several teeth can be be worked on simultaneously. See treatment process below.
A. First the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing about 0.5 mm of enamel from the tooth's surface. The thickness of the removal becomes approximately equal to thickness of the veneer.
Prior to shaving off the enamel from your tooth your dentist will discuss with you the possible need of a local anesthetic although it is not always necessary.
B. Second, an impression of your tooth will be made and this will be sent to our dental lab which will use it to construct your veneer. (note composite veneers can be made at the dental clinic immediately without the need to send impression to the lab)
C. Next, is the fitting process where the dentist will repeatedly place and remove the veneer to and from your tooth to continuously trim and shape the veneer to make a proper fit. Eventually a precise fit and colour using different shades of cement will be achieved. Perfection takes a little time.
D. The next step is to properly prepare your tooth to receive the veneer. This involves cleaning, polishing and etching the tooth's surface to allow a strong bonding of the tooth enamel and the veneer.
E. The penultimate step is the final placing of the veneer to your tooth.
The specially prepared, coloured cement is applied to the veneer which is then placed on your tooth. Once in position a special light beam will be used by the dentist to quickly activate the curing and bonding properties of the cement. This will allow maximum hardening and strengthening of the composite cement.
F. Finally, finishing touches including removal of excess cement, evaluating your tooth bite and minute adjustments as necessary will be made for the perfect function and look of the veneer.
The dentist will make a final inspection and may ask you to return for a follow-up visit, to check your gums response to the new foreigner in your mouth and also to inspect the veneer's placement etc.
Lifetime of Veneers:
Veneers usually have an optimal lifetime of 5 to 10 years after which they would need replacing.
