Veneers are a fantastic way to fix front teeth. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns and can perfect your smile by closing spaces between the teeth, mask broken or chipped teeth, whiten stained or discolored teeth.
Veneers are very thin semi-translucent “shells” that are bonded on the front of your anterior teeth. These veneers are about 0.3mm to 0.5mm in thickness but are very strong once bonded to your teeth. Veneers have several advantages over crowns (caps). Veneers do not require the massive grinding of tooth structure that caps do. There is no "dark line" that is sometimes seen with older front caps. Veneers transmit light better and, therefore, have a more translucent appearance giving a natural, esthetic look.
What Does Getting Porcelain Veneers Involve?
Usually requires two dental appointments over the course of three weeks to complete the process. Your first appointment usually involves some minor contouring of the front teeth and taking an impression of the teeth and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist. After the impression has been taken temporary veneers are placed and worn until your permanent veneers are ready. On the second appointment, the laboratory created veneers are tried in, and, if satisfactory, they are bonded in place. A follow up visit is made in a week.
Invisaligns are a set of clear custom made aligners that work towards straightening your teeth. They are used as a replacement of the conventional metal braces. These virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth. They can be easily removed during eating, brushing and flossing. They render quick results usually within 6 months to a year and you’ll be able to feel the difference. Aligners are changed in almost every two weeks. Regular progress checks are necessary with your invisalign certified dentist. Number of aligners required varies from person to person.
