What are veneers?

Veneers are customized thins shells made of tooth-colored materials. The wafer-thin shells are designed to cover the front area of your teeth to improve appearance. This type of restoration is used to fix issues such as:

Teeth that are discolored
Teeth that are worn down, chipped or broken
Teeth that are uneven, misaligned, and irregularly shaped.
Teeth with spaces between them

What are the types of veneers?

Veneers can be made from resin composites or porcelain materials. Resin composites are thinner than porcelain and requires less removal of tooth structure, but on the other hand, porcelain resists stains and replicates the appearance of your natural teeth. Your dentist will discuss the pros and cons of each with you.

What are the steps involved in getting veneers in George Town?

The process involves treatment planning, tooth preparation, and placement of veneers. During the first step, your dentist will examine your teeth and mouth and will have a discussion with you about your goals and concerns and a treatment plan will be designed accordingly based on your budget and preferences.

If you have the treatment you will probably need to make two visits - one for your teeth to be prepared for the veneers and for moulds of your mouth to be taken and sent to the lab, and the other for the veneers to be fitted. However, if you are lucky enough to visit a dentist with CAD/CAM technology then there is a possibility you can have everything done on the same day.

Veneers are easy to fit and are fixed to the teeth with a special light-activated adhesive that bonds the veneers securely to your teeth.

How do I maintain my teeth with veneers?

To maintain your teeth, keep up with your daily oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Visit the dentist for checkups and cleaning. Avoid nail biting, chewing of hard food, and eating stain-causing food and beverages.
