Well-designed Dental Veneers for a Megawatt Smile

Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and Demi Moore, singers Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, and even football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo – all got dental veneers set for their megawatt smiles. It’s one of the most popular ways to improve your appearance in just 2 to 3 trips to the dentist.

Veneers make teeth look healthier and more natural, correcting those that are discolored or stained, misaligned, chipped or unevenly shaped. Usually made from porcelain, veneers can also be composed of biocompatible dental composite materials like resin and ceramic. Your dentist can bridge the gaps in your teeth, refine its shape and make your teeth seem brighter and straighter.

Before anything else, ask your dentist to evaluate your teeth so he/she can recommend if getting veneers is the right treatment for you. Veneers are exclusively crafted one by one by the dentist, and nearly impossible to tell apart from natural teeth. During the procedure, the dentist uses an anesthetic to remove a small amount of tooth enamel that’s the same thickness of the veneer so the tooth size is consistent. He/she then makes a mold of your teeth to make the veneers.

On the next visit, your dentist can show you the veneers made individually before bonding each one on your teeth. A special cement is applied on the veneer and your dentist proceeds to harden it with a special curing light. Veneers usually last for quite some time, provided that you take special care of it by regular brushing and flossing.
