If you have recently chipped a tooth, you may wonder if your smile will ever look as nice again. Thankfully, dentists have come up with several ways to restore a person’s smile after a tooth has been damaged. One of the most common solutions is to make and install a dental veneer over the tooth. Dental veneers have a relatively short history, but they are commonly installed in modern cosmetic dentistry offices.
The video posted here showcases the process by which a dental veneer is made and installed on a tooth. First, the dentist has to make the veneer to ensure it looks natural in the mouth. Typically, veneers are made of a thin layer of porcelain that is color matched to the surrounding teeth. Some dentists can make veneers in their offices, while others have to order custom veneers for their patients.
Once a dental veneer is made, it can be applied to the broken tooth. To make sure it adheres well and looks natural, the dentist first takes off a layer of the tooth. The dentist also uses acid to etch the surface of the tooth. This rough surface bonds well to the veneer when a layer of adhesive is applied between them. The dentist typically puts the adhesive on the veneer and then places the veneer on the tooth. The final result looks completely natural.
