Veneers…What are they?

Veneers…What are they?

If you’ve dreamt of getting back those perfect teeth, then veneers may be an option for you. 

What are veneers? 

Veneers are an ideal treatment for people with teeth that have been stained, chipped, or with gaps. They are wafer-thin and are custom-made, using tooth-colored materials. They are meant to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance, strength, and resilience.  

Veneers are considered as permanent treatment. Hence, it’s important to have a good knowledge of what they are before jumping into this procedure.  

Who needs veneers? 

There are several reasons why people opt for veneers. Some people use them for correcting small misalignments or closing gaps as they are less intrusive than crowns or braces. There are also those who opt for veneers for cosmetic reasons (i.e. enhance the brightness of the teeth, straighten the smile, etc.). 

Getting Veneers 

It often takes more than one trip to the dentist to get veneers. The first is usually for consultation while the subsequent trips are for making and applying veneers.  

During your consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth. Your dentist will then explain the procedure and its limitations. This is the best time for you to ask for questions, if you have any. 

If veneers are right for you, your dentist will remove half a millimeter of your enamel from the tooth surface to make a model or impression of your tooth. This is sent out to the laboratory to create your veneers. It takes about 2-4 weeks for your dentist to receive your veneers.

Improve Your Oral Health in 2019 with Cakmes Dental Studio

Blog Single

Did you know that your oral health can affect the rest of your body? Or that your oral health reflects your overall health?

The mouth is teeming with thousands of bacteria. While most of them are harmless, they can reach to levels that are enough to cause oral infections such as gum disease and tooth decay. This is especially true if you don’t keep up with good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing.

Poor dental health is a major contributor for serious health issues like heart disease and respiratory problems. Some studies have shown that it can also contribute to dementia. Fortunately, there are ways to improve your oral health. The first step? Schedule an appointment with a dentist.

Why you should see a dentist?

If you haven’t seen a dentist in a long time, now is the time.

Seeing a dentist early on can help you avoid or mitigate dental issues such as tooth decay or gum problems. These may seem minor at first but when left unattended, they can lead to more serious health issues.

Cakmes Dental Studio has a dedicated team to help you achieve the healthiest and brightest smile you could ever have (our loyal customers can attest to that!).

We are committed to providing our customers with the best quality of service in dentistry. We use the latest dental technology such as a diagnodent laser for early detection of tooth decay, the use of intra oral camera, and one day crowns (Cerec).

Some of the services we offer include ClearCorrect, aesthetic contouring, Cerec restoration, and tooth colored fillings.
