Veneers are customized super-thin shells designed to cover the front area of your teeth. The “wafer-thin shells” are made of tooth-colored materials that match your natural teeth to improve the appearance, shape, size, color, and length of your teeth. Veneers are used to solve various dental issues like teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, and irregularly shaped.
This dental restoration can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers look like your natural teeth and resist stains than resin materials. Resin composite materials are thinner and require minimal removal of your teeth structure. Feel free to discuss your goals and budget with your dentist. A personalized treatment plan can be created for you to suit your needs.
The process of getting dental veneers involves diagnosis and planning, preparation and bonding. During your initial consultation, you and your dentist will discuss the goal you wish to achieve, what the procedure entails and some of its limitations. X-rays are also taken to evaluate your case. After determining that this the best option for you, your teeth are prepared by removing a small portion of your enamel to make room for your veneers.
This is followed by trimming, shaping and fitting of the veneers. Lastly, the veneers will be bonded permanently to your teeth. Maintain your teeth with veneers by keeping up with your daily oral hygiene. Regularly brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash. Avoid food and drinks that can stain your teeth.
As with any other restorations, the cost of veneers depends on the type of material you choose. Veneers in Kuala Lumpur starts at USD $490.46 (CAD $645.22; AUD $653.34; NZD $724.08; UK £347.92). You’ll enjoy big savings while helping to pay for your vacation in KL.
