How Will Dental Veneers Help My Smile?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of the teeth. Essentially, they are thin slivers of hard-wearing material that fit over the front of the teeth. Each one is custom made to fit so they look natural and exactly like your own teeth—only better!

Veneers are an ideal solution for a number of irregularities with your teeth, including gaps between teeth; chipped, cracked and damaged teeth; misshapen teeth and crooked teeth.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Veneers?

The procedure for veneers will take a couple of visits to the dentist during your time in Singapore. This is taking into account treatment planning, preparation of teeth and fitting of veneers. The steps are summarised as follows:

  1. Consultation and treatment planning: Before any treatment takes place, the dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and discuss your hopes and goals to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. You should have a full and frank discussion with your dentist, and be clear about what you want. Read up about other people’s experiences, and check out before-and-after photos. You might be surprised by what you didn’t know about veneers, which may affect your decision on how to proceed. There are also other questions your dentist will have, for example, do you want porcelain veneers or another material? How white do you want your veneers to be? How many veneers do you want?
  1. Tooth preparation: Once you and your dentist have agreed on how to proceed, the next stage is to prepare the tooth or teeth receiving the veneers. So that each veneer will sit flush with the rest of your teeth once it has been positioned, a tiny sliver of enamel is removed from the front of each corresponding tooth. Next, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to an external laboratory where your veneers are made to measure.
  1. Placement of veneers: You can go back to have your veneers fitted as soon as your dentist receives them back from the lab (appointment times permitting). The dentist will hold the veneers up against each tooth to check fit and colour. Each tooth is then etched slightly to roughen up the surface in order to provide a good bond with the veneer. The adhesive is applied and the veneer put into position. A special light is used to activate the bonding chemicals which harden and fix the veneer firmly to the tooth.

Note: thanks to advances in CAD/CAM and CEREC technologies, dental patients can often have their veneers done in a day. Be sure to ask your dentist about this option.
