A show of hands, please. Raise your hand if you have ever wanted to be a celebrity. Many of us do at one time or another. It’s understandable because celebrities have fame, beauty, and money. Many celebrities don’t want you to know that in their past lives, they did not look as glamorous. However, once people begin their careers in stage and screen, they want to look as beautiful as possible. Often, they begin with their teeth, because they are important to their careers. After they get their teeth fixed, celebrities can’t stop smiling. If you want the same teeth that the stars have, it is possible - with veneers. Not sure what veneers are? Let Spektor Dental give you some information on cosmetic veneers.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells that fit over your natural teeth. They are made from porcelain. Each set of veneers is personalized for you to fit perfectly. You may want veneers on one set of teeth - either your upper or lower teeth. However, you can also get veneers on both your upper and lower teeth. There are some veneers that are made from dental composite, which is a combination of glass and plastic, but they are not as strong as the porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are also shinier than composite veneers. Composite veneers are not as expensive as porcelain veneers. Whether you get porcelain or composite veneers, they are cemented onto your natural teeth with dental cement.
Why Do People Get Veneers?
People get veneers for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, people get veneers to cover up teeth that are cracked and broken. Instead of fixing each tooth, we can cover the cracked, chipped, and broken teeth with veneers. You may have had cracks or breaks in your teeth due to an accident, an injury, or because you clench or grind your teeth at night. People also get veneers to correct spacing in their teeth. If veneers are used, you could avoid braces, which adults can appreciate. If you have teeth that are crowded, veneers can cover the crowded teeth. You can even use veneers to fix teeth that are discolored as well. One of the best things about veneers is that we can fix multiple issues with your teeth in one sitting.
What Is The Procedure For Getting Veneers?
Even though veneers can solve a ton of problems, the procedure to put veneers on is fairly simple. We sometimes make an impression of your teeth. We may also take pictures of your teeth, or make a model with 3D technology. All of that happens so we can make your veneers. We then decide with you the color of veneers that best suit your skin, hair, and eye color. When your veneers are ready, we sand a bit of your enamel off your teeth and cement them to your teeth with dental cement.
