Dental veneers are of the size of a finger nail and basically protect the enamel of the teeth without compromising the natural appearance. Dental Veneers or dental laminates are generally made out of porcelain. Some of the modern day veneers are also made from natural color resin composite material to provide that exact look and feel of your natural teeth. Dental veneers have now become a part of the dental care packages that are on offer even in many of the dental clinics in and around Melbourne including Niddrie Dental Clinic.
Dental veneers are custom-made structures and vary in shape and size with every individual. So it needs complete supervision and consultation with a dentist. The first step involves visiting your dentist and having a complete analysis of the structure of your teeth. Different people might have different reasons for installing dental veneers. One might not be comfortable with the shape of their enamel or sensitivity might be an issue. Individuals who are associated with performing arts are concerned with the external appearance especially the color. This requires many important steps and one common way is to create a dummy dental veneer to study the compatibility and adaptability with your teeth. If the dummy goes on well with your teeth then the final veneer is made or else the necessary changes are made to achieve the desired result for that great smile. Cosmetic imaging is an effective way to provide the first impression of the final result. Cosmetic imaging is to provide you with the image of your teeth with the dental veneers on.
A proper X-ray is done to get the exact nature and structure of your teeth. This would be followed by careful confiscation of quarter to half a millimeter of the dental enamel which would depend on the thickness of dental veneer that is to be placed to achieve the desired results. Prior to the removal of the enamel, the concerned dentist must consult with an anesthetic expert to tranquilize the required portion. The next step involves creating an exact impression of your dental arch so as to send this to the concerned dental lab in order to create that perfect dental veneer for you. The designated dental veneer might take anything between 10 to 15 days to be delivered.
Post delivery of the dental veneer, the veneer is repeatedly fitted and removed and also truncated to achieve the exact shape and structure. Cleaning and polishing of the enamel are done before the final placement of the veneer. The veneer is then cemented with proper adhesive and chemicals and a specially designed light beam is used to make it a perfect fit for your mouth. The bite is examined precisely and the excess adhesive is removed.
Proper dental expertise is required as there is a lot of precision and accuracy involved in it. This should be done by an expert and trained dentist who is accessible and would respond in times of emergency.
