What is called veneer and where is it used in the dentistry?

Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that fits over the front surface of the tooth. Sometimes instead of porcelain, a “composite” material of natural color is used. Veneers can improve the position of your teeth, color, and shape. In addition, you can choose the exact shade of porcelain to alleviate the front teeth or to give the right color to improve one discolored tooth. They can make the dent again whole. Porcelain covers the entire front part of the tooth, with a thicker section replacing the broken part. Veneers can also be used to close small spaces when orthodontics (brackets) are not suitable. If one tooth is little out of position, you can sometimes pick up veneers to bring it into line with others.

Where did Veneer use in the dentistry?

Veneers make teeth healthy and natural. Because the veneer is very thin and is held in place by a special strong glue, very little preparation of the tooth is required. Some types of veneer generally do not need any preparation of the tooth at all. Veneers take at least two visits. The first is to prepare a tooth and match the shadow, and the second – to pick it up. Before you paste it into place, your dentist will show you the veneer on your tooth to make sure that you are satisfied with it. The binding of veneer in place is made with a special glue, which firmly holds it on the tooth. After installation, minor adjustments to the veneer can be made. It is usually better to wait for a little to get used to it before any changes are made. Your dental team will probably want to check and polish it a week after its installation and make sure that you are happy with it.
