We have a number of cosmetic treatments to address issues with your smile’s appearance, such as teeth whitening to remove stains. But what if you have multiple issues with your smile? In these cases, you may consider veneers, which can transform your smile’s appearance. Remember, we offer free initial cosmetic consultations to see if restorations like these can help you enjoy a brighter and more esthetically pleasing smile.
What are Dental Veneers?
These are very thin restorations, shells that we place over the front of the teeth, covering the front and sides and completely altering the appearance of the smile. We can use them to completely change the appearance of the tooth, addressing a multitude of cosmetic issues. They are made using porcelain, a very strong material that is also stain-resistant. The material can also mimic the appearance of the tooth and be shaded to blend with your smile.
How Do You Place Them?
We will first prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. We will then take detailed impressions. At a dental lab, the impression will be used to design and fabricate the restorations. When you return for a follow up visit, we will place them using a powerful bonding agent.
What Cosmetic Concerns Can They Address?
We can use them to lengthen worn down teeth, repair chipped or broken teeth, and close gaps between teeth. They can correct the appearance of misalignment and mask permanent teeth stains.
Do They Require Special Care?
No! You just maintain the same level of care as you would for your natural teeth, which means brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing every night, and taking time every six months for a checkup and cleaning.
