Dental veneers are the latest trend in cosmetic dentistry. In dental dentistry, a dental veneer is simply a thin layer of composite material generally made of porcelain or composite material that is placed over an existing tooth. Veneers protect the tooth’s underlying surface from further damage and enhance the aesthetics of the smile. A David B. Fisher D.D.S. veneer may be required for your very first tooth or may be required if you are having teeth extracted. Dental veneers are designed to look and feel like natural teeth.
Dental veneers are custom-made with a custom mold from which they are constructed. A cosmetic dentist will discuss with you the options and details of the Porcelain Veneers procedure, including what type of preparation need to be done prior to your first appointment. You will also discuss the pros and cons of dental veneers and will be given the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. The dentist will make the necessary arrangements for your appointment. On your initial visit, the cosmetic dentist will place a temporary crown above the veneers to assess the success of the placement.
To prepare the tooth for dental veneers, the dentist uses a combination of materials. One of the main materials used is a white porcelain laminator, which is basically a moulding tool. This is used to shape the tooth, and also to help determine the thickness and shape of the crown. After the laminator has been used to shape the tooth, the desired end result will be achieved. Dental veneers are then prepared by applying a resin to the outer surface of the crown, and a bonding agent to the tooth surface to help it bond better.
A composite resin is used to help create the final dental veneers. Resin veneers usually consist of materials such as porcelain, which is very light, but extremely strong. Porcelain also allows the dentist to create custom shapes for each tooth, which is one of the main benefits of using this material. Usually, the color of the resin composite is closely matched to that of your natural teeth, or can even be created to resemble platinum.
Dental veneers are designed to look like your natural teeth so they will all match. Although there are some minor changes to the shape of the teeth, the overall appearance should remain virtually the same. Porcelain is generally low maintenance, and it can take just a few cleaning sessions to achieve a bright smile. In comparison to other options, such as crowns and bonding, porcelain veneers cost about seventy percent less. Another benefit of dental veneers is that they are long-lasting. Unlike bonding or crowns, if you choose to remove them, there is no need to remove the remaining teeth, which can lead to gagging and difficulty breathing.
Dental veneers, which often come in a set of two, can last for many years before they must be removed. Dental bonding requires that the remaining teeth are removed, so the lower teeth do not have any of the exposed bone on the surface. Bonding is also commonly used to repair sagging teeth that are uneven in shape. Since both of these procedures require the removal of healthy teeth, your smile will be much more attractive with dental veneers.
