Dental veneers are covers shells made to look like one’s real teeth. These veneers are often called dental porcelains or veneers. They can be made from porcelain or synthetic resin. The idea behind veneers is to improve the look of the teeth. Veneers are like clay; they can be moulded to suit any teeth in any shape, length, colour or size. However, my local dentist here in Melbourne told me that resin veneers are much better. However, it’s always good to talk to your doctor before starting the procedure. Most of the times the dental veneers are fixed on teeth that are discoloured, disfigured, that worn and torn down, teeth that are chipping and teeth that have too much of a gap between them. I even talked with the best implant dentist Melbourne here and he assured me about the process which lessens my worry.
My Experience of Fixing Dental Veneers
Veneers cannot be put in one visit to the dentist. Veneer fixing would require a minimum of 3-4 visits. Veneers can put on one tooth or even more together. My dentist started off with examining my teeth. He discussed with me as to why would be putting these veneers and what would be my personal agenda behind the veneer fixing. The dentist took some X-rays of my teeth from different angles. This is done so that he can get the exact imprints of the original teeth, and the veneers implants can come to look as real as your original teeth. The dentist began by removing a little enamel from my current set of teeth. Some people may require an anaesthetic procedure while some might require none of it. The dentist took a model of my tooth, and this was sent to another dental clinic to make my veneers. This was my first session. The second one began when my veneers came all ready from the dental clinic. The second session involved the bonding of the veneers to my original teeth. The veneers were placed on my teeth to check whether they matched with the original teeth. The dentist cleaned my original teeth and applied the cement while simultaneously placing the veneers on the surface of the teeth. He then placed a laser beam rod near my mouth. The laser light assists in releasing a chemical substance that binds the teeth to the veneers. The treatment was over
The dentist called me for a follow-up after two weeks to check how my gums and mouth area was responding to the new dental veneers. Everything went well and I was quite happy to be honest with the result. I even suggested about this to one of my good friends who happened to have the same issue. He is a bit scared though so not too sure if he is going to do it. LOL.
