You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance, and are a perfect alternative for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are very thin pieces of tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful smile. Veneers are used to reshape your teeth and can create a uniform, white, beautiful smile. If your teeth are crooked, misshapen, severely discolored or stained, too small or large, have uneven gapping or are worn or chipped - veneers may be the ideal solution.
Veneers require two appointments to complete. The teeth are prepared by conservatively shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of porcelain. An impression and a shade will be taken of the prepared teeth and sent to a lab technician to create your veneers. At a subsequent appointment, the doctor will try-in the veneers and evaluate the esthetics and bond the veneers onto the teeth.
When placed, you'll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth. While veneers are stain resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
