Painless Cosmetic Dentistry like Laminate Dental Veneers are subtle modifications to perfect your smile instantly giving you a smile reconstruction. Smoking, and heavy consumption of coffee, tea and wine plays hard on your teeth. Furthermore, teeth that are crooked, widely spaced, intrinsicly discolored, or just badly shaped are problems that many of us would like to get rid of without serious surgery. A simple solution to all these problems is Laminate Veneers.
Laminate Veneers are tooth colored front covers. Just like a bumper of a car conceals the mechanics inside, or a hard plastic cover protects a phone screen, laminate veneers protect and conceal visible problems present on front teeth. Laminate veneers are strong casings lasting a life time without compromising your natural teeth.
They can restore smiles to perfection and are usually recommended for use for the front teeth of the upper arch where such concerns will be most prominent. Laminate Veneers are relatively simple and mostly painless solution to close off small or medium gaps between teeth. Larger gaps are effectively closed with veneers pasted on two adjoining teeth to conceal the space.
Laminate veneers are completed in two visits about a week to two weeks apart depending how many veneers you desire. During the first visit your dentist will take two impressions of your mouth. The first one will print the original size and structure of the arches, and the second one is done after your teeth have been prepared. Teeth preparation for veneers is done to make room for the laminates by scaling about 2 mm off the front and top section of each tooth. The impression taken after preparation will help the technician create veneers to fit in perfectly. You will have temporary bonding done to conceal the reconstructive changes until your second and final visit with us.
On your second visit, the bonding material is removed exposing the prepared teeth. The veneers are placed first without gum to make sure they fit correctly and feel comfortable. The goal of a veneer is to conceal a problem area but feel completely natural. Once you and your dentist are happy with the position, size and colour, each veneer will be permanently fixed using aspecial glue.
Lumineers are perfect for covering minor imperfections on otherwise perfectly strong teeth.
