A veneer is a coating of material that is placed over a tooth in dentistry. Veneers can enhance the appearance of a smile while also protecting the tooth’s surface from harm.
A veneer is made from two sorts of materials: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer can be directly inserted (built up in the mouth) or indirectly created in a dental lab by a dental technician and afterwards glued to the tooth, often with a resin cement. They are often used to treat adolescent patients who will require a more permanent design once they reach adulthood. A composite veneer has a lifespan of about four years.
A porcelain veneer, on the other hand, may only be made indirectly. A complete veneer crown is defined as follows:
Veneers are a prescription-only prosthetic item used by aesthetic dentists. A dentist may use a single high-quality veneer to fix a single damaged or discolored tooth, or numerous teeth on the upper arch to produce a huge brilliant “Hollywood” kind of smile makeover. Many people have tiny teeth, resulting in voids that may be difficult to fix with orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth, giving them a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have a crooked tooth or teeth. Multiple veneers can fix these gaps, extend teeth that have been reduced by wear, cover the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, and give protection against tooth decay.
