What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain sheets that are cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth to give you a whole new smile. Veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth and match the anatomy of each tooth. Because the result of the veneer is permanent, you must be sure of your selection before proceeding. Veneers can alter several features of your smile. Here are some of the main characteristics that veneers can transform:
- Obvious gaps
- Length of teeth
- Correction of chips or broken teeth
- Alignment issues
These are the main reasons that patients look to get veneers. If you want to change any of these issues on your smile, please see us today!
What is the Dental Veneers Process?
The first step in the veneer procedure is a consultation with your dentist. Together we will discuss the aspects of your smile that you wish to change and your new smile’s overall appearance and hue. The dentist will need to buff and shave off a small part of your enamel to make room for the veneers. It is the only way to ensure that the veneers fit nicely in your mouth and are not be too big. Impressions will be taken and transmitted to a dental laboratory with the particular alterations and measurements needed to help the dentist make your veneers.
On the second appointment, your dentist will fit and fasten the veneers to your teeth with dental cement and a blue curing light. While you may experience some discomfort in your mouth during the treatment, it is essentially painless. You can utilize your new veneers right away. Because veneers appear and function like natural teeth, it’s vital to maintain good dental hygiene and schedule bi-annual checkups.
Benefits of Veneers
- Veneers allow you to alter the appearance of your teeth in a minimally invasive way. You will get a brand new smile with no surgical treatment involved.
- We use porcelain to make veneers. This material functions effectively in your mouth and helps you avoid intolerance.
- Porcelain is also stain-resistant, so your teeth will stay white for a long time.
- Veneers take less time to create and place in your mouth than crowns and bridges, but they are often more durable than other dental work.
