Veneers are an excellent way to immediately improve the appearance of an individual’s smile and correct noticeable flaws in their teeth. They consist of thin, wafer-like shells that are secured on the visible surface of a person’s teeth. They work by making teeth appear more even in terms of size, while also correcting cosmetic issues with alignment and spacing. Additionally, veneers can also make color adjustments by helping teeth appear whiter. Because of their impressive versatility and overall simplicity, veneers are becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available today.
Veneers can provide a large number of dental applications, such as:
Because of their ultra-thin design, veneers are almost entirely invisible to others. After they have been applied, they offer the appearance of healthy, white tooth enamel. Veneers are also made using stain-resistant materials, preventing them from becoming discolored from tobacco use or dark-colored beverages like coffee, wine or juice. With proper maintenance, a set of veneers are good for up to ten years before requiring replacement. At Aqua Dental Loft, our experts are strong advocates of porcelain veneers because of the material’s natural look and outstanding functionality.
When applying veneers, we start by shaving off some of the enamel on any tooth that is set to receive treatment. This is done to make space for the new veneers. Next, we use an etching gel to roughen the outer surfaces of the teeth so that the veneers can bond properly. Finally, we carefully apply the veneers over the surface of the patient’s teeth and secure them with a dental adhesive.
