A smile that is well-formed and dazzles is more pleasing than one that’s dull or misshapen. Further, to have a dazzling smile yourself is a huge incentive to show it off at every possible chance. It’s no coincidence that people with beautiful teeth tend to have more confidence and feel more comfortable conversing with others. For most of us, simply seeing a bright and perfect smile can change our day for the better. Wouldn’t you love to be able to have that affect on a fellow person? Just because you weren’t born with genetically perfect teeth doesn’t mean you can’t someday smile with pride. Your answer may be found with a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, porcelain veneers.
A porcelain veneer is an exceptionally thin piece of porcelain designed to fit the front surface of teeth to mask unappealing features like discolorations, chips, cracks, wear facets, improper alignment or gap with the neighboring tooth.
The process of veneer treatment requires 2-3 appts. Initial appt. involves a detailed discussion with the patient regarding his/her views about a pristine smile. This is the most important phase of the treatment as it helps to design a set of veneer that will deliver precisely the image the patient wants to portray.
Once a plan is ready, tooth preparation is done. It involves shaving off a very thin layer of the enamel(~ 0.5mm) and normally does not require a anesthetic. Once shaped, an impression of the prepared teeth is taken and a mold is created. In the next appt. the veneers are tried and after the patient approves of it, they are finally bonded to the tooth.
They fit your mouth perfectly and look fabulous with your overall appearance. In about two to three visits, your dream smile could be reality!
Neither the in-office or at-home whitening procedure is permanent. The longevity of whitening is strongly related to dietary habits, the original color of your teeth, and personal habits like smoking, drinking red wine, tea, coffee etc Re-whitening can be done as often as necessary, either with professional or home care systems. But on an average, the effect lasts for 2 years.
Whitening gels have no effect on the composite filling materials. Polishing may help but if not, you can have the surface of the fittings redone. A better choice may be to replace them with porcelain laminate/veneers for longer lasting results.
The new improved formulations of whitening gels have completely eradicated the problem of sensitivity previously associated with whitening. If a mild sensitivity is present it subsides automatically in 48 hrs.
Practically speaking, with some minor differences all systems have almost the same composition. Choice of a particular system is purely based on personal preference of the patient and the doctor.
As the porcelain is a durable and relatively stain-resistant material, with proper care veneers could last 10 – 15 years. Avoid abusing your veneers in similar ways to avoiding abuse of normal teeth and your new smile will shine bright for every day you have them.Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your veneers.
Teeth whitening is a viable option for people with stains of nictotine, tea, coffee etc. . However, for those that suffer more severe staining, such as that caused by tetracycline or excessive fluoride consumption, porcelain veneers may be the only viable option as even the most intense whitening programs may not work 100% of the time.
We design veneers in IPS Empress, IPS E.max, and procera in our cosmetic dentistry practice.
