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.

Cosmetic Dentistry : Beautiful Smiles

Cosmetic dentistry is all about improving the aesthetics of your smile. Many people don’t feel confident about smiling in photographs, and feel wary of showing their teeth in social interactions because they’re discoloured, crooked, or have unsightly gaps. Fortunately there is a safe and easy solution available through your dentist – known as the ‘smile makeover.’A smile makeover – another term for cosmetic dentistry – involves one or more of a range of dental procedures, such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, white fillings, orthodontics, gum reshaping, and dental bridges. In fact, many cosmetic dentists also offer facial rejuvenation such as Botox. Together, these treatments can transform the shape of your smile, bringing huge psychological and relationship benefits.CEREC is a hi-tech alternative to dental putty (which is used to make impressions of your teeth). A sophisticated camera sends a 3D image to an onsite milling machine, which produces a new crown or veneer from a ceramic block. CEREC is fast and eliminates the need for dental moulds and temporary fittings.Invisalign braces are clear plastic braces used to straighten teeth. This revolutionary alignment system is moulded for an exact fit, and worn for at least 22 hours a day, for 6-18 months.Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers which cover gaps between teeth and improve the appearance of worn or discoloured teeth.Veneers are a popular choice to transform crooked, stained, and damaged teeth into perfect pearly whites. It involves cementing a wafer thin shell (made from porcelain, ceramic or a composite bonding agent) over the top of the tooth.
