Posted by Dr. Shirley Zao on Feb 24 2021, 08:53 PM

Everyone wishes to have a flawless, sparkling, and beautiful smile. However, many factors, including the food and drinks that we consume, can cause stains on teeth. No one wants to walk around and meet others with yellow-colored teeth, right? Dissatisfaction with own smile can affect one's self-confidence and social life. However, worry not! Thanks to modern dentistry, if you want a dazzling and stain-free smile, we have dental veneers as the best solution. 

Besides improving the aesthetics of your smile, veneers protect the tooth's surface from damage. Veneers provide your smile, an instant makeover like no other method can.

 What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like dental appliances crafted from porcelain using the person's teeth as a blueprint. Veneers are bonded to the surface of the tooth by a dentist, resulting in a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Veneers only improve your teeth' look and not strengthen or repair it. Thus, veneers are a quick solution to various dental concerns such as spacing between teeth, chipped, cracked, worn-out or crooked teeth. 

Purpose of veneers

The main benefit of veneers is that they hide the flaws and little imperfections of teeth. Veneers are an easy solution for several aesthetic issues as they improve the overall appearance of your smile. Veneers are the fastest solution for people who have stained, broken, chipped or slightly misaligned teeth. Veneers can also be used to fill gaps in between teeth.

How do the dental veneers work?

The Veneers correct a wide range of dental issues like:

  • Stained or yellowed teeth that cannot be whitened by bleaching.
  • Large gap or spacing between the upper front teeth
  • To cover a worn or chipped tooth.
  • To conceal crooked or misshapen teeth.

Benefits of Veneers

Getting the porcelain veneers involves consultation with the dentist, making and applying the porcelain veneers. Here are the benefits associated with getting porcelain veneers: 

  • Dental veneers are stronger and have the potential for performing better. 
  • Porcelain Veneers are resistant to stains. Hence, you don't have to worry about tooth discoloration anymore.  
  • The gums can tolerate veneers. 
  • Veneers help correct cosmetic dental issues like misalignment of the irregularly shaped tooth, cracks, and gaps between teeth. 
  • It helps to remove the stains on the teeth.
  • Veneers fix minor cosmetic problems. They help camouflage minor orthodontic issues. 
  • Veneers help in replacing damaged or worn-out enamel. Veneers are an excellent treatment for teeth with enamel abrasion.

What is the process involved in getting Veneers?

The stages involved in getting the Veneers are as follows.

  • Consultation: During your first visit to the doctor, your dentist and supporting team will examine your teeth condition and will advise you on the best treatment course based on your needs and wants. Your tooth impressions will also be taken at this stage.
  • Preparation:  Once you decided on the type of veneers, your dentist prepares your teeth for the actual procedure. A thin layer of enamel will be removed from the teeth to which the veneers have to be attached. The process requires no anesthetic as only a small amount of drilling is done.  Thinning the enamel is done to create space for the new veneer and make them look natural.
  • Fitting: The veneers will be attached to the teeth by the dentist and will be checked for alignment issues.

Veneers are also called "instant orthodontics" as they correct cosmetic concerns related to the teeth in less time. Veneers are not permanent, but their longevity can be increased by regular brushing, flossing, and avoiding stain-inducing foods.
