Teeth often become discolored and damaged. Accidents, diseases, age, and certain medications all contribute to this unfortunate reality. Veneers are an excellent way to repair teeth that are discolored, chipped, or cracked.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored coverings that our dentists apply over your teeth to improve your appearance. They are custom-made for each individual patient for a perfect fit. They can correct common aesthetic issues such as stains, yellowing, and chips. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth or lengthen the way your teeth look.
Veneers not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also protect the teeth. They create a barrier for your teeth, making it harder for stains, bacteria, and plaque to stick to your teeth.
Veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain is more stain-resistant and tends to look more like your natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require the removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.
Veneers can address a variety of cosmetic issues. Some patients choose veneers for a more attractive smile, while some patients choose veneers for a more attractive smile when they want to correct cosmetic imperfections. In some cases, veneers are also more appropriate than dental crowns, making them a more cost-effective cosmetic dentistry option. Its other benefits include:
Once you’ve made the decision that veneers are right for you, the next step is to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to describe your goals and concerns, and our dentist will talk with you about the best approach to treatment.
Our dentist will examine your teeth and bite to determine if the veneers are right for you. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the procedure and ask questions.
While preparing for the placement of the veneers, the dentist will shape your teeth and make them ready for the veneers to be placed. Then, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth to send to the lab to create customized veneers. So, until then, you’ll wear temporary veneers, which look just like your permanent ones. Once your final veneers are ready, another appointment will be scheduled to place them.
