Most of us have some sort of dental imperfection. Be it cracks, chips, small gaps or misalignments, at some point, we’ve all been a little insecure in our smile. Luckily, most of these small flaws can be addressed with a non-intrusive restoration called veneers. These cosmetic shells are perfect for improving your smile’s appearance without the need for extensive dental work.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. That said, they are not necessarily permanent. They may have to be replaced over time but are normally very durable and with proper care can last many years, giving you a beautiful, long lasting smile.
Reasons for Receiving Dental Veneers
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth
What is the Process for Receiving Veneers?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
