If you are not happy with your teeth or smile and are looking to transform into a white gleaming one, you need orthodontics without any use of braces. And this can be done with the use of porcelain veneers.
What is veneer?
A wafer thin shell of porcelain that has been fired is placed on the front surface of the tooth and giving a natural look, it allows the dentist to change the width, color and length of the teeth. Whether your teeth are stained or years of smoking has taken a toll on your set of 32 teeth, porcelain veneers are the best way to ensure your smile shows off a gleaming set of teeth. So why spend years of hiding yellowed or worn teeth, endure metal braces when you have a chance to look naturally beautiful?
Once the dentist decides which of the teeth need to have the porcelain veneer application, the dentist with take a soft impression of your teeth. The impression is sent to the laboratory with the details about the veneer that is needed. A 'wax model' is created about how the smile will look which is then reviewed by the dentist and the patient, modified if needed and then it goes into creation mode. The wax model is then used as the blueprint and the new 'porcelain veneers are created from it. In the meanwhile the temporary teeth are given to the patient and after the veneer are ready, the temporary teeth are removed and the new one is bonded with the original teeth.
The recovery time is equal to any other dental procedure, the gums may seem tender or there might be instances of swelling after the porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth. The dentists usually prescribe mild anti-inflammatory medicines or painkillers to remove any discomfort that you may feel. It is only after a few days that the veneers get adjusted in the mouth and the bite becomes better. The complications with veneers are rare but sometimes the area may get bacteria-infected but can be treated with antibiotics.
So what is special about the implantation of porcelain veneers and which is the technology that is used? The best aspect about getting dental veneers is that you get white teeth, perfectly shaped without the hassle of braces and teeth whitening sessions.
