Porcelain dental veneers are used by most dentists today. They are ideal for worn teeth correction, misalignment, diastemas, dental depigmentation, occlusion, and aesthetic problems.
It’s no secret that we all want to wear a bright smile that dazzles everyone in the room. However, with time, certain drinks, foods, and habits wear on our natural teeth. This is when dental veneers become a valuable and functional option to improve overall bite.
When teeth grow stained, malformed, misaligned, or missing, we tend to make a conscious effort not to smile or use other defense responses to conceal the teeth while smiling.
The correction of these types of problems often brings changes in people; in fact, the positive psychological effects of smile restoration often contribute to improved self-image and self-esteem over time.
Veneers are a relatively thin sheet of ceramic bonded to the vestibular surface of the anterior teeth using composite resin and whose only purpose is aesthetic. It is considered one of the indirect reconstruction techniques with the most favorable results nowadays, both in duration and aesthetic.
Porcelain dental veneers are made by fusing porcelain ceramic in thin layers to shape the final result in a very delicate way to simulate the texture and shape of natural tooth enamel.
One of the cons of this method is that the specialist must grind down the natural tooth to bond the veneer to the tooth, which may cause some dental sensitivity. When they fall out or are removed for any reason, the tooth will no longer appear as it did originally.
This dental technique requires several sessions because it is complex and very detailed. It is essentially the art of creating a tooth by hand to achieve a perfect smile.
Veneers are an effective treatment option with outstanding esthetic results in those who suffer from dyschromia or color imbalances in the tooth. However, the more intense the unhealthy coloration, the deeper it will be necessary to grind the tooth to mask the color.
Porcelain veneers are painless. We know that you may think that the tooth enamel grinding may hurt while the veneer is being placed, but it does not.
You may feel discomfort or sensitivity but no pain since the procedure respects the inner part of the tooth where the nerves that send pain signals live.
One of the reasons many people turn to porcelain veneers is because they have stained teeth due to heavy coffee drinking or smoking. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are not stained by these substances. The bright color and texture are kept over time.
The investment of porcelain dental veneers is about its complexity and aesthetic value, being a non-invasive, painless, complex procedure with excellent results.
The placement of porcelain veneers that restore a smooth surface leads to anatomical correction and the non-retention of bacterial plaque, thus solving the problem.
