There are people who have been embarrassed by their teeth for many years. They hate their appearance so much that they never smile and barely speak to co-workers and strangers. This makes it very hard to get promoted or make friends. Many people just assume that they are unfriendly. When their sister suggests that they speak with their Dentist in Kamuela about this problem, they are astonished that there is a simple and fast solution. Porcelain veneers can reshape their chipped and misshapen teeth. They can also fill in wide gaps between their teeth. Veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of teeth. Therefore, they will also cover dingy and stained teeth to create a bright and white smile.
The Dentist starts by chemically removing a small amount of tooth enamel. This will allow the porcelain veneer to sit properly on the tooth and under the gums. Porcelain veneers are the same thickness as a contact lens, so the dentist removes a very thin layer of enamel. The procedure is painless. He then takes an impression of all of the patient’s teeth. This mold is sent to a dental laboratory, where a technician will create the porcelain veneers. Veneers can be made from either resin or porcelain. Many people prefer porcelain because they think it looks more like natural teeth. It takes about 10 days for the veneers to be finished. During that time the patient will wear temporary veneers to protect the tooth surface.
When the patient returns to have the veneers cemented in place, the dentist will first check that they fit properly. He will also check the color to make sure that the patient is happy with them. He will then use a permanent adhesive to cement the veneers in place. A special light will be shined on the patient’s mouth to ensure the adhesive cures properly. Once the process is complete the patient will be able to eat and speak perfectly. For the first time in a long time, he will love his perfect smile. Brian S.
