Veneers are thin layers of porcelain or composite resin material, which are attached to the front of the teeth. This procedure provides a natural and immaculate look to your smile. Veneers are very difficult to stain, which makes this procedure a very popular one due to its long-lasting qualities.
In just two or three dental visits to Kaswan Dental, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth.
Veneers are composed of resin or porcelain. Porcelain veneers opposes stains better than resin veneers. Porcelain veneers copy the light reflecting assets of natural teeth, which creates a very blended and natural look. Porcelain veneers, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth. Resin veneers are a conservative option to porcelain veneers. During your consultation with the doctor, we will further discuss which veneer best fits your needs.
An impression of the tooth must be taken, and a lab technician will then mold the veneer. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible. The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
