Veneer

Bright Smiles Bali offers a number of options to restore teeth that have been damaged. Your dentist can determine which ones best meet your needs.

Dental Veneers can beautify your smile by concealing stained, chipped, damaged, worn or misaligned teeth. Veneers are thin, custom-made molds that cover the fronts of unsightly teeth. They are crafted from tooth colored, high-tech materials to give a natural, bright smile.

Veneer

As with your natural teeth, veneers require good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. To keep your veneers looking as good as new, follow your dentist’s recommendations. In some cases, certain foods can cause discoloration. These include tea, coffee, red wine, other heavily pigmented food, and tobacco. Veneers can chip or peel off if not cared for properly, so avoid habits such as fingernail biting, chewing on ice, and other hard objects. Like any restoration, it is possible for the veneer to come off or for small decay to develop. In that situation a new veneer may be required.

Having a tooth “veneered” is a procedure requiring just a few appointments. To provide form and help strengthen a veneer, a small amount of enamel maybe removed from the front and  edge of the tooth. An impression of the tooth is then made and sent to a dental laboratory where the veneer is made to match the color and shape of your teeth according to your dentist’s specifications. When it is time to attach the veneer, your  tooth is prepared by roughing the front surface with a mild etching solution. Using composite resin cements, the veneer is set in place. Avoid using your teeth to open packages or to break thread, and if you grind your teeth, you may want to invest in a night guard to protect your dental work.

There are 2 type material of veneer :

  • Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain Veneers can be completed in two appointments and they are made in the lab.
  • Composite Veneers : Your teeth can also be veneers using composite resin, composite veneer can be completed in one appointment.

The full smile make over usually consists of a combination of whitening your natural teeth, and the placement of porcelain veneers to hide imperfections and enhance your smile. For perfection we usually recommend veneers for the visible teeth you show when you smile, this is normally 8 to 10 top and bottom teeth.
