If you have chipped or discolored teeth, veneers can be an effective solution. They consist of thin shells of porcelain and cosmetically improve your smile. They reduce the visibility of any undesirable aesthetic features by attaching to the front surface of your teeth.
Veneers provide an efficient, comfortable, and convenient restoration for discolored or chipped teeth. This is what makes them popular with patients. Some of the problems they treat include:
- Stained Teeth
- Discolored Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
To create the most accurate veneers, an impression of your teeth is required. This enables your oral structure and bite functions to be analyzed. Your teeth will undergo an additional sanding procedure to prepare the surface for bonding.
After the veneers have been designed and finalized, your teeth will be rinsed with specialized liquids to assist the bonding process. The bonding cement is applied to the veneers and attached to the front surface of your teeth. A blue curing light will be focused on the area for 20 seconds to increase the hardening process. The veneers will be fully secured after this procedure.
