The secret of Hollywood stars- Veneer
Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie or Ben Affleck they all have lovely smile and they do not even want to hide that actually they have spent money to look this way.
You are going to hear people saying those celebrities have veneers and this seem like the perfect way to have perfect smile, but each mouth is different and (porcelain) veneers need to be carefully researched by everyone who wants to have this procedure.
Deciding that porcelain veneers will create the look you want is not the first step in the process. You have to lear a lot before stepping further. Porcelain laminate veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers which replace original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, less than a millimetre of the original tooth enamel will be removed. It creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth.
The bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical as it provides the esthetic perfection desired. Light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light.
Porcelain veneers are a very successful option in many situations where the original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.
With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.
Dentists may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.
After the treatment
After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically disappears within a few days. In a healthy mouth properly treated with porcelain veneers—and where destructive forces are minimized or eliminated—a patient should be able to use porcelain veneers like his or her own teeth. Although they’re very strong, veneers are also brittle. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with non-veneered teeth: don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open beer bottles with your veneers!
You should treat your veneer as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste is normally suggested by us.
One week after your veneers are placed, you will be required to return to the office for a control visit and examination so we can see how your mouth is reacting to the veneers
If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth during your sleep, we may suggest you a nighttime bite guard so you do not damage your veneers.
You should also return to us once or twice a year because porcelain veneers are suggested to be polished.
