Veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to cover the front part of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice because they provide a natural appearance. They are also stain-resistant and resist chipping.
When Are Veneers Recommended?
Veneers are used to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental problems, including:
- Broken, chipped, or worn teeth
- Teeth that are stained or discolored
- Teeth that are crooked, uneven, or have gaps between them
What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?
Natural, Seamless Look
Veneers can help brighten and reshape your smile. When they’re applied, they mask any imperfections. Because they are incredibly thin, they blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. Patients with stained, chipped, worn, or misaligned teeth can benefit from veneers.
Veneers are stain-resistant. This means that you can enjoy your bright smile without fear of staining. You may want to avoid coffee, red wine, and smoking, but you will not need to sacrifice your favorite foods for your smile.
Veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure that can fix a multitude of smile imperfections from spacing to alignment issues, stains, cracks, or worn-down teeth.
Dental Procedure for Veneers
To create room for the veneers, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth. Then, an impression of the teeth is taken and sent to a laboratory where the veneers will be manufactured.
The dentist will prepare the teeth by polishing and roughening their surface. Then, the dentist will apply a special adhesive to the surface of the veneers. The adhesive will help the veneers stick to the teeth. The dentist will press the veneers onto the teeth and gently shape them until you are happy with the results.
