A dental veneers dentist will ensure the teeth are ready
When someone is looking at getting dental veneers, they typically have one or more teeth that are not in the best shape. The teeth could be worn down, chipped or broken. However, if specific issues are present, then a person cannot have the veneers installed until those have been fixed.
Typically this includes things such as if there is a cavity, or if a crack is below the gum line. If this occurs, dental veneers will not fix the issue, only cover it. Since a cavity can progress and cause more issues, it is crucial for the person's dental health that they have whatever problem they may be experiencing fixed and then have the veneers placed.
How dental veneers are placed
After it has been discussed that dental veneers are a good option for a person to regain having a beautiful bright white smile. Once the possibility of dental veneers has been decided upon, the patient will have their teeth prepared for the bonding of the veneers onto the teeth.
The dentist will shave off around ½ millimeter of the enamel on the teeth. This is done to ensure the veneers are placed and form into the other teeth are there does not look like any device is on the teeth. By doing this, the bonding treatment can be done extremely quickly.
Bonding the veneer
The dental bonding is done to place the veneer on the teeth. The bonding agent will be spread on the teeth and veneer, and then the dentist will put the veneer on the teeth. After the veneer has been placed, a light will be used to cement the bonding and veneer to the teeth. This process does not take long, and after it is completed the patient will have the fantastic looking teeth they have wanted.
