We each have our own traits and when it comes to teeth this pretty much remains the same. Sometimes through genetics, sometimes through improper care, (whichever of these it is) your teeth might be misaligned, stained or display traces of chipped enamel in some areas to name a few which makes for some irregularities. Dental veneers are an extremely versatile form of dentistry that can solve a lot of problems that can take place with your teeth.
If you are looking to fix your discoloured, chipped or uneven teeth, dental veneers maybe your solution in Dubai. Perhaps the first thing to do when it comes to dental veneers is to find out what they really are and how they can help you.
Dental veneers are constructed in a lab environment from porcelain materials that last a long time and are tailor-made, wafer-thin shells. Also known as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, they are usually placed on the front of the teeth also known as the ‘anterior’ where force from chewing is lesser than it would be on the back teeth. They are also relatively easily to put into place and should be sorted within a couple of appointments depending on your situation.
The first step would be to take impressions of your teeth so the veneers can be made. It’s a rather fiddly job when considering that you need to take into account fitting space, size and colour. Dental veneers can be made to a shade of your preference ranging in different arrays of white.They are then fitted onto your teeth making sure there’s enough space on the sides as it encompasses a natural effect. Once the process is complete adjustments will be made for a more comfortable fit.
The process would be something like the image below, in terms of how the veneer would be placed:
It would be a good idea to head into a consultation first to check your teeth and assess what exactly needs to be done. Sometimes teeth grow over others blocking their path which would make a dental veneer fitting a bit more challenging and your dentist will know what’s best to be done. You also can then decide on a shade that you think would suit you during this consultation and discuss what you want to be corrected.
If you’ve been plagued by teeth issues all your life and have developed a self-conscious attitude because of how it affects your interaction with people, it might be a somewhat emotional consultation as you will have to really open up-to your dentist when considering dental veneers. It’s a good idea to keep this in mind, as after years of hiding from the public will have made you a little reserved. Preparing mentally beforehand can really help you deal with the rather invasive examination… but it is only done to help you and you can soon flash that smile of yours again!
It is of utmost importance that you take proper care of your brand-new sparklers. If you neglect them they could discolour and disintegrate which, defeats the whole purpose of the procedure in the first place. Ask your dentist for the best aftercare procedures once you have fixed your dental veneers and how often you would need to book appointments for regular check-ups.
