What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are extremely thin shells of porcelain that slip over the teeth. We remove a micro layer of tooth enamel to ensure a perfect fit, and chemically bond the veneers to the teeth with a special dental cement that is hardened under a light. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and can last for decades with proper care. We will work with you to choose just the right size, color, length, and fit.
How Dental Veneers Help Improve Your Smile
Dental veneers are an excellent choice to improve the look of teeth that are healthy but are not aesthetic. If you have any existing oral health issues, we will address those before placing your veneers. We may also recommend a treatment such as Invisalign if your teeth are badly misaligned. For those whose teeth are healthy and mostly straight, porcelain veneers can be the best solution. There are many reasons to get dental veneers including, but not limited to:
- Cosmetically perfect your smile
- Fix crooked or misshapen teeth
- Correct stains or discolorations
- Improve the size of teeth
- Close unwanted gaps between teeth
- Repair teeth that are chipped or worn down
What to Expect
Dental veneers require approximately three office visits. Your first visit will consist of a consultation, along with X-rays and dental impressions should you decide to go ahead with veneers. With our help, you will design the precise look you desire for your veneers.
Your second visit is for your teeth to be prepared. We will remove approximately 1/2 millimeter of tooth enamel from the front surface of the teeth to be covered with veneers. We will then take new impressions of just the teeth that will receive the veneers.
We will then send your impressions to a trusted dental lab, along with detailed instructions. It takes approximately 4- 5 working days for lab technicians to construct your veneers. When we receive your veneers, you will return for a third visit. We often prepare your teeth on a Monday morning and deliver your new custom veneers by Friday afternoon.
During this visit, we will use translucent dental cement to carefully place your new veneers. We then remove any excess cement, adjust the bite slightly if needed, and perform any needed last-minute touches. Our goal is for your new smile to be both highly functional and aesthetically beautiful.
Depending on your needs, we will likely schedule you for a follow-up visit to ensure that you are satisfied with your new veneers and that your teeth and gums remain as healthy as can be.
