Do you wish you could change the size or shape or your teeth? Do discolored, crooked or misshapen teeth have you shying away from the camera? Do you wish there was an effective but minimally invasive solution to improve the look of your smile? Dental veneers allow you to change the look of your smile without undergoing a complex treatment, but with results that are nothing short of transformational.
Dental veneers are a thin covering that is placed on the front of the teeth with a strong cement. The veneers are made of either porcelain or a resin composite material that blends in with the rest of your teeth for a natural finish. The following dental conditions can be improved with this cosmetic treatment:
The dental veneer process is done in two phases. During the first phase, the dentist will reshape the surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. An impression is taken of the tooth and then it is sent to a lab where the veneer is fabricated.
Once the veneer is ready to be placed, during the second phase of the process, the veneer is placed on the tooth using a strong cement. A light is used to quickly harden the cement, creating a strong and lasting fit. Your dentist will make any adjustments to the shape of the veneer to achieve a perfect fit.
Patients enjoy the natural look of veneers as well as the fact that they don’t irritate the gums or require special care. Porcelain veneers in particular are stain resistant. These traits make veneers a top choice for those who want a dental solution that they don’t have to manage.
