Call us today to schedule a consultation to discuss your interest in veneers.
Dental veneers are small, thin sheaths of porcelain or ceramic that are used to hide cosmetic flaws found on the surfaces of teeth. Whether it is chips, cracks, stains, or minor gaps, these restorations are custom-made to transform appearances.
Used for decades to change the way a smile looks, Hollywood’s elite first used them in film. Although removable and bulkier than those made today, they were deemed only attainable by the rich and famous. Over the years, though, advancements in dentistry led to a thinner restoration that is more attractive and attainable.
The veneer process requires several steps. After meeting with a member of our team to discuss your eligibility, we will begin by discussing the desired shade of your new teeth. Using a shade guide, we will make notes about the chosen color so that the information can be sent to lab technicians.
We will then remove a small portion of tooth enamel from each tooth so that a bonding agent can properly adhere once the veneer is ready to be put in place.
We will take impressions of your smile so that lab technicians can begin to fabricate your new teeth, and we’ll fit you with temporary veneers that you will need to wear in the meantime.
Once your finalized veneers are ready, you will return to our office to have your temporary veneers removed and your permanent ones carefully put into place. A final polish will allow you to walk away with a beautiful smile.
Many great benefits come with choosing veneers to hide your cosmetic imperfections. Many patients are worried that others will notice; however, the materials used today are far more natural in appearance, leaving you to feel more comfortable about your new and improved smile.
