Waterdown Dental Veneers
Sometimes called dental porcelain laminates or porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are a thin, custom made shell that covers the front of the tooth in order to improve the overall appearance. The shells can cover one or more teeth and create a brighter, whiter smile. You can find dental veneers in Waterdown when you visit Waterdown Smiles Dentistry.
The History of Veneers
Although seemingly a recent phenomenon, dental veneers actually go back almost a century as they were originally developed back in the 1920s by Dr. Charles Pincus. He conceived the idea for film actors to project a brighter smile for the camera through the use of temporary false teeth that were thin and covered the front of the actor’s real teeth.
By the 1960s, Dr. Michael Bunocore was able to use modern adhesives to bond the veneers to the front of the teeth successfully. By the 1980s porcelain was used as a material for veneers that could be bonded in a permanent fashion as well and the procedure took off in popularity.
What are Dental Veneers?
The dental veneers can be crafted from porcelain or from composite materials made from resin. Porcelain is generally superior because it presents a look that is very close to real teeth especially when light is reflected off of them. Resin veneers however are thinner and require less of the tooth surface to be removed before applying.
Basically, a small amount of the surface from the natural teeth is removed so that the veneers can be put into place. Once there, the veneers are then shaped and sculpted until they offer the right color, size and shape to mimic real teeth.
What do Dental Veneers Accomplish?
There are many aspects that dental veneers fix when they are properly applied to the teeth. For the most part, they cover the discolored, worn down, chipped or broken teeth that created an appearance of an unhealthy smile. Dental veneers address this issue by covering these areas and creating a whiter, brighter smile that also looks very natural.
Dental veneers also work for teeth that are misaligned or have gaps that need to be covered. In this manner, a bright, pleasing smile takes the place of crooked or irregularly shaped teeth. For many, having dental veneers has changed the way that they feel about themselves, creating a younger and healthier overall appearance.
