Unlike other types of veneers which are usually thin shells, MAC veneers are thick in appearance. They are also very strong, as they are made using pressed ceramic that is of very high quality. Their strength makes them very resistant to damage, meaning they are very durable. They are also very stain resistant and though they are thicker than porcelain veneers, they are still very aesthetically appealing.
MAC veneers have a unique capacity for adhering perfectly to the surface of teeth, which ensures that they stay in place and never get knocked out in case of impact.
The procedure for placing MAC veneers
Stage 1: preparation
Before you get MAC veneers, the dentist has to take into consideration your personal facial features and oral health. To ensure that the shape of the veneers will look natural for your face, an impression and pictures of your face and mouth will be taken and sent to the lab so that they can custom make veneers that are best suited to your facial features.
It will take about 4 weeks to custom make your veneers. In the meantime, your dentist will prepare your teeth and fit you with temporary veneers.
Stage 2: Bonding
When the veneers are ready, you will receive a call from the dentist’s office to go in for a fitting. Before fitting them your dentist will make adjustments where necessary. He will then bond them to your teeth.
