There are many dental problems that can spoil the appearance of the teeth and make people ashamed of their smiles. In some cases this can be the source of real emotional problems that affects self-confidence and self-esteem but there are ways to improve your smile with various cosmetic dentistry treatments.

As you may have seen on one of the many TV makeover shows on our screens in recent years, porcelain veneers are capable of completely transforming the teeth and creating stunning healthy looking smiles. These are thin ceramic shells that fit over the top of the existing teeth restoring the size, color and shape of damaged teeth. This damage could have occurred as the result of discoloration, worn enamel or even structural damage to the teeth.

The veneers are made of porcelain and will be specially designed to compliment your mouth and smile. Your dentist will construct the veneers according to dental mould or digital x-rays taken at an earlier appointment. Modern fabrication techniques have radically shortened the time it takes to make veneers and the finished product is now of a superior quality.

In the past, porcelain veneers took several weeks to manufacture in the lab after several appointments to measure and design had been carried out. This involved lengthy and uncomfortable dental moulds and rounds of x-rays, but in recent years new technology called Cerec has revolutionised the way that veneers are designed and manufacturedCerec utilises CAD/CAM technology, meaning computer aided design, computer aided manufacture. With the aid of new technology such as digital x-rays and three-dimensional imaging the dentist is now able to design the veneers on a computer screen before instructing a computer to sculpt the veneers from specially chosen porcelain. This has drastically reduced the time you will need to spend in the surgery and made treatment a lot more pleasant.

The veneers are cemented in place using dental bonding, a resin substance that is very hard wearing, adding another layer of protection to the teeth. The ceramic itself is also very tough and will protect the teeth from further damage. You may have seen the incredible effects possible using the latest veneer techniques on one of the many TV makeover shows that populate our screens at the moment.

Porcelain is such a good choice for veneers as it very closely resembles actual tooth enamel even to the point of being slightly transparent.These look and feel just like real teeth and with the right care and attention will last up to twenty years before they need replacing. Not only will they look great but they will also protect the teeth from external damage by plaque and bacteria.This means that not only will your teeth look and feel great, but they will also look very realistic. Find out more about veneers at your dentist the next time you go for a check up appointment.

Porcelain Veneers : For Brand New Smile

There are two main types of veneers that can be placed over the top of damaged or discoloured teeth to restore the cosmetic appearance of a smile. Composite veneers are made of a resin and are made in laboratory or even constructed in the mouth during an appointment. The other type of veneer is made entirely from porcelain and is cemented over the top of teeth using dental bonding.

Although composite veneers are cheaper, they do not look nearly as realistic as a porcelain veneer which are specially designed to resemble tooth enamel. Composite veneers are more suitable for individual teeth that are damaged or for repairing small cracks or chips. When it comes to replacing a whole dental arc that has been damaged by staining or discolouration there really is only one option. Also, as technology advances, new tools are being developed to speed up the manufacturing process of porcelain veneers and with technology such as digital x-rays and Cerec, it is now possible to sculpt veneers from a single piece of porcelain in a matter of minutes.

Other modern porcelain veneers are incredibly thin, some the same width as a contact lens, which can be fitted over the teeth with no enamel removal and can be completely removed themselves should the need arise. They are in fact so thin that they can fit over existing veneers and other dental repair work.

As well as completely restoring the appearance of damaged teeth, porcelain veneers also play an important protective role. Acting as a second layer of enamel they protect the teeth from decay adding another important barrier to tooth decay. Call 177-645-0704 for a free consultation at Goma Dental Clinic in Shimla.

“Hollywood” Smile Makeover : Porcelain Veneers

If you have unsightly amalgam fillings, tooth discoloration, or uneven teeth, it may be to your advantage to have porcelain veneers. While these coverings will not necessarily add any strength to your teeth, they will make them look much more attractive. Today, when you visit a dentist , you can have porcelain veneers created for you.

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.Depending on the size of the area that needs to be filled in, your dentist may need to do a small amount of drilling. Typically, most patients do not require anesthesia for this process. That said, if you are nervous about dental drills, your dentists will do everything possible to help you relax and feel comfortable. For the most part, you will find that having porcelain veneers placed is far less distressing than getting cavities filled.

Traditionally, a reduction of approximately 0.5 mm is required for a porcelain veneer. Once the surfaces of your teeth are prepared for veneer insertion, your dentist will need to take molds of each tooth surface. From there, the porcelain veneers will need to be custom designed. In most cases, you will need to come back for a second visit in order to have the veneers bonded to you teeth. While this is not a painful process, you will be very relieved to see how much better you look with your new porcelain veneers in place.

As may be expected, veneers are primarily used to help create an even and beautiful smile. Therefore, you may find that you will need several veneers inserted at the same time. This will help create even coloring for all of your teeth, as well as make it easier for your dentist to create a harmonious balance that will create a perfect smile. Perhaps best of all, once your porcelain veneers are in place, you can enjoy a bright, beautiful smile for years to come.
