What does veneers means?
Ceramic veneers are thin ceramic layers similar in size to contact lenses, which are applied on the outer surface of teeth , being one of the most non-invasive methods to aestheticized their appearance and protect damaged surfaces after removal of the cause and treatment damage.
They can be considered true “masks” that hide the teeth identity well , this change of “teeth personality” being made of course in order to improve it!
Dental faceting is part of the dental aesthetics branch and aesthetics has clear , objective rules of beauty , and it has also less clear rules , subjective ones, as those from the category ” beauty is in the eye of the beholder” – here we can include the pure white Hollywood smile which makes one look good in pictures or at TV and the very nice natural smile when you admire a friend while you are out for a tea in a sunny day of spring!
Types of veneers:
Dental veneers are often made of ceramic or composite , the ceramic is more durable than the composite and does not change color over time. In general , for ceramic veneers two visits to the dentist are required ; the composite can be applied in a single visit , but overall , the ceramics are superior in terms of resistance and especially in terms of aesthetics , the latter being able to render perfectly the natural appearance of tooth enamel.
Execution of ceramic veneers:
For the achievement of preparations local anesthesia is required ; therefore , the process is completely painless ; then your dentist removes a very thin layer of enamel to accommodate future veneers , the next step is printing , the print is then sent to the technician who will make the pattern in order to render in the lab the situation of the preparations over which he/she will make the veneers.
The print will be sent to the technician together with a series of precise indications on color and form , and most importantly, with pictures of the teeth and face of the patient to finally obtain a great result in perfect harmony with the smile and facial expressions.
Meanwhile , the dentist will make provisional veneers in order to replace the removed enamel layer , the patient will wear these until the ceramic ones are ready.
Temporary veneers are very fragile and must be handled with care while eating and brushing , as they can peel easily.
On the next visit , the doctor will remove the temporary veneers and prepare teeth surfaces for cement , then he/ she will apply every veneer , one by one using a special cement for veneers.
Who can wear veneers?
Not everyone is a good candidate for veneers.
Here are some situations in which your doctor may recommend you another type of treatment :
– If a tooth is decayed or had periodontal disease , gingivitis ; first , one must have these problems treated , and then the doctor will decide whether or not there is a possibility of applying dental veneers.
– If the patient misses too much of a tooh , an aesthetic coating made of pressed ceramic or ceramic with zirconia , silver or platinum gold support will be a much better solution than dental faceting.
-If a person clenches / grids his/her teeth , that is he/she suffers from bruxism, sooner or later she/he will fracture the dental veneers.
Veneers cleaning :
Like natural teeth , faceted teeth must be cleaned daily using:
– proper and careful brushing
– use of oral shower for a complete cleaning of areas difficult to reach and keeping gums healhty
– avoid abrasive toothpaste to avoid damaging the veneers surface.
And last but not least , make a check every six months for a professional cleaning and brushing!
