Porcelain Veneers, Lumineers, Snap on Smile
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and colour) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discoloured or stained teeth.
- Teeth those are too small or large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (colour) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
Lumineer is a brand of veneers that offers ultra-thin, translucent materials that maintain the natural appearance of your tooth enamel. Lumineers will help your teeth appear uniform, straighter and whiter. It is a pain-less procedure and a permanent whitening solution for your teeth. Lumineers differ from traditional veneers as they are much thinner and do not require grinding down of the teeth prior to applying them.
Your dentist first creates a mould of your teeth, decides on the acceptable shade of tooth colour and then sends the mould to the lab to create customized lumineers. On your second visit, your dentist will apply them onto the tooth surface without the need for injections or drilling.
