Dental veneers – Treatment process
The first and foremost step in a smile makeover process is to examine teeth and gums and to make a note of esthetics needs. Pictures of teeth are taken which help us in noting down the errors and designing the smile. After noting down the esthetic problems with the smile, our dentist discusses the treatment options. Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain. The shells provide a more natural appearance to teeth. The visible front teeth are reshaped accurately. This completely transforms the appearance of the smile.
Natural teeth should be firstly prepared to create space for bonding dental veneers. This may be done with the help of local anesthesia. Dental burs may be used to remove some portion of the enamel layer at the front. Impressions of prepared teeth are taken. Acrylic veneers are created at our office which cover the natural teeth until the permanent veneers are fabricated in the lab.
The second stage of treatment involves removal of temporaries and cleaning the teeth. Dentists check for fit of permanent veneers before bonding them in place. Once the permanent veneers are bonded over natural teeth, the smile looks more attractive and healthy.
