The function of dental veneers
Dental veneers are intended to correct the aesthetic appearance of your smile. They are thin ceramic shells that cover the front of the teeth, much like fingernails. They make it possible to correct the shape, size, and color of the front teeth, but they are less resistant than crowns and can only be used in certain cases.
Dental veneers allow you to find perfect white teeth. The treatment is adapted to patients who have teeth yellowed by tobacco or coffee. While dental whitening generally only saves 2 or 3 shades, dental veneers can restore a Hollywood smile.
To improve the shape of natural teeth, which may be too small, too short, or have suffered trauma, cracks, or breaks. In this case, dental veneers make it possible to restore perfect teeth to allow patients to find an irreproachable smile.
To correct a slight misalignment of the real teeth, in the case for example of diastemas, an unsightly gap that is generally treated by orthodontics. The dental veneers can indeed place in such a way as to hide the gap and therefore rectify the alignment of the teeth.
Who can have comers?
Dental veneers can reserve for patients who meet the following conditions:
- complete dentition (if the molar area is incomplete, you must first restore the chewing area before placing veneers on the front teeth)
- almost correct axial position (if the teeth have a significant axial deviation, either orthodontic treatment or crowns must be prepared)
- correct occlusion (veneers require occlusion at the appointment, otherwise they risk breaking)
- healthy teeth (not decayed or broken, and the root alive)
- non-devitalized tooth (the shade of a grayish tooth will not hide by the thin ceramic layer of the veneer)
Benefits of dental veneers
Dental veneers are the quick and effective solution to gaining a dazzling smile within a single 5-day visit if your teeth are healthy but imperfect. Veneers can indeed very sought after because it is a solution that has a large number of advantages:
- Quick solution (unlike orthodontics which often lasts more than a year)
- Aesthetic solution (very natural result ensured by the finesse of the facets)
- Vital teeth (no devitalization, so helps preserve dental capital)
- Resistance to food stains guarantees an aesthetic long-term appointment.
- Minimally invasive approach (compared to the crown where the tooth must cut into a point)
The steps to follow for the placement of dental veneers
The placement of dental veneers is an intervention that can carry out in two sessions. Since veneers have no base, there is no fitting. First, you must pass an oral examination that validates this prosthetic project.
Often patients do not know that the realization of a dental veneer is an irreversible act because the buccal surface of the tooth can prepare. Not only to keep the natural thickness of the tooth but also to ensure greater stability.
Once the teeth can prepare, the dentist takes impressions and sends them to the prosthetist laboratory and the production of the veneers can launch. A few days later the veneers can bond. The dental veneer can fix prosthetic element, but in case of deterioration, it can remove and replace.
If it is a more complex intervention that will aim to dress the majority of the teeth of a jaw, the dentist will in some cases have to make a dental mask. It will allow the project and the final rendering to properly validate.
- The laying of dental veneers is an intervention that can carry out in one or two sessions if it is a question of masking a defect by placing only one or two dental veneers.
- If it is a more complex intervention that will aim to equip all the teeth of a mandible or the jaw, the dental practitioner will then start by making a dental mask which will allow the project to validate and the final render.
