Veneers are one of the best ways to immediately improve the look of a person’s smile. Consisting of thin, wafer-like shells, veneers are secured on the front surface of one’s teeth in order to correct certain flaws. With their simplicity and versatility, veneers are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dental treatment available.
There are several dental applications that veneers provide, including:
- Adjusting the color of teeth
- Correcting crooked or misshapen teeth
- Repairing damaged or chipped teeth
- Adjusting the size and shape of teeth
- Reducing noticeable gaps between teeth
With their amazingly thin design, veneers are virtually invisible to others. Once applied, they offer the appearance of healthy, white tooth enamel. Because veneers are built from stain-resistant materials, they are not likely to become discolored due to the use of tobacco products or the consumption of dark-colored beverages like coffee, wine or juice. When cared for properly, a set of veneers should remain intact for more than ten years. Our experts use porcelain veneers because of the material’s natural look and exceptional performance.
Our veneers are custom-built using 3D scans of the patient’s teeth. Patients who receive our custom veneers will find that they can dramatically enhance the look of their teeth while appearing completely natural.
When applying veneers, the first step is to shave off a small amount of enamel on any tooth that is designated for treatment. This will provide an adequate amount of space for the new veneers. Next, the teeth are treated with an etching solution to roughen their outer surfaces allowing the veneers to bond properly. Finally, the veneers are applied to the teeth and secured with a dental adhesive.
