It used to be that cosmetic dentistry was only for the rich and famous. But as more people are becoming more concerned about their smile, cosmetic dentistry is beginning to become very popular among the masses. If you are considering getting veneers or bridges, you should know what they are, how they work, and why they are used so frequently.
Veneers are basically done in two parts. The first is an elective procedure that will be put on your permanent smile. The second is an elective procedure that will be put on your external smile. You will be given the choice between veneers or bridges.
Veneers are basically flat pieces of materials, which are applied to your teeth and gums to enhance the natural color of your teeth. They work by putting a layer of color into your tooth structure. They can be colored to your preference. This is very similar to putting a white filling over your existing teeth.
Bridges are basically a fiber cement that is put on your teeth and gums to secure the new veneer. It is similar to a white filling over your existing teeth. Bridges are generally placed for four to six months before you have to see a dentist to get it fixed. Once this process is complete, you will be able to use your old smile again.
Bending is another term that is used for when teeth have lost some of their original shape. Teeth can be warped if the surface of the tooth is not completely healthy. The teeth can become more or less symmetrical and may have a pitted appearance. These can also become hollowed out. In these cases, veneers and bridges can fix the problem.
Other terms used for cosmetic dentistry include tooth whitening, gingivitis curettage, and implants. These terms are all synonymous with cosmetic dentistry. All these procedures are put on your teeth to make your teeth appear whiter and more desirable.
Types of dental veneers
There are several different types of dental veneers and bridges. The most common ones are porcelain veneers, composite porcelain veneers, porcelain veneers, thin-section porcelain veneers, and thin-section composite porcelain veneers.
One type of porcelain veneers is the porcelain under-crystal veneers. These porcelain veneers are made of metal and the basic material is a porcelain substrate. The porcelain substrate is dyed with a color.
The above porcelain veneers are made up of a ceramic-like material and they have a porous surface. When the porcelain substrate is colored, the color-less base material turns to a color. Some of the porcelain veneers are dyed a light or dark blue color.
Composite porcelain veneers are also known as composite porcelain veneers. These veneers are made from a composition that is partly resin and partly ceramics. The surface of the veneer is finished with colors to create a distinctive pattern. There are different varieties of this porcelain veneers that can be customized for specific needs.
When you want to make your teeth whiter, you may want to get your teeth whitened. This is a procedure that will whiten your teeth and get rid of the discoloration. This is done by using chemicals that whiten your teeth and erase any discoloration that may have occurred from your teeth.
