Teeth veneers are shells that matches the colour of your natural teeth and fits over the front of a tooth. Many people are opting to fix dental problems with teeth veneers in Newmarket. These wafer-thin shells fit over the front of a tooth, giving it the appearance of a natural tooth. There are several reasons why teeth veneers are popular.
Your dentist can choose porcelain veneers to exactly match the colour of your teeth. In addition, the material is also strong — on average, veneers last 10 to 15 years but can last up to 20 years with good care. Finally, as it feels just like a natural tooth, in a short time, you’ll forget the veneer is even there.
You can also treat a veneer as if it were a natural tooth. There is no need for additional care or maintenance — just brush the veneer along with your other teeth. Plus, there is no risk of damage if you use your veneer to only bite and chew food.
Dental veneers can correct alignment, gaps between teeth, cracks, chips, discolouration, worn-down teeth, poor shape, and too-short teeth. Best of all, they can solve more than one problem at the same time on the same tooth.
The fast process to receive a veneer is fast. After an initial consultation with your dentist to discuss whether a veneer is a suitable option for your needs, you will need to visit the clinic just twice.
At your first appointment, your dentist will prepare the tooth, removing the top layer of enamel at the same thickness as the veneer. You may receive a local anesthetic for this part of the procedure. The dentist will then take an impression of your tooth and provide you with a temporary veneer to maintain the appearance of your tooth.
You will return around four weeks later for the permanent veneer. Your dentist will place the veneer over your tooth to check the fit before gluing it in place.
