Patients seeking out teeth veneers often do so because they are embarrassed and self-conscious by the look of their teeth. Teeth veneers enhance the smile the moment they are cemented and give patients the ability to choose the color and shape they want. A dental expert will support the patient by offering advice and suggestions making sure the new teeth veneers blend and match perfectly to the person’s facial features and look natural in the smile line.
Teeth veneers made from porcelain are designed and built by highly skilled dental lab technicians. Due to the accuracy needed to ensure the tooth veneers fit well and look amazing, dedication and training in the area of dental prosthetics are needed. Ideally, a tooth veneer will cause minimal damage to the tooth as the dentist makes every effort to only remove enough tooth structure to make room for the veneer facing to be cemented in place.
The overall procedure to have a tooth veneer is much the same as a dental crown. It generally requires two 1 hour appointments spaced two weeks apart to complete. This makes it a relatively quick solution to an unsightly smile.
