Are you dissatisfied with your smile because you have discolored, crooked or uneven teeth? Our dentist can solve these problems with porcelain veneers.
Advantages of Veneers
Veneers are just one of many treatments we can suggest to improve the appearance of your teeth. Some of the advantages of veneers include:
- Natural tooth-like appearance
- Well-tolerated by gums
- You choose the shade
- Strong and durable
- Can last 20 years or longer
- Require less shaping of the teeth than crowns
For Whiter, Brighter Teeth
Sometimes, teeth can be resistant to whitening. Veneers solve this problem by covering dark, yellowed or discolored teeth. With a brighter smile, you can feel more self-confident, attractive and at ease in any situation, whether it is a job interview or a social event.
For Straighter, More Even Teeth
If your teeth are slightly crooked or irregularly-shaped, dental veneers can give them a straighter, more even appearance. We can also make your teeth look longer if they are worn down or just naturally short.
Repairing Chipped or Broken Teeth
Teeth that are broken or chipped can make you feel old and ugly. With the veneers in place, you can finally look and feel your most young and attractive self.
Filling In Gaps
A gap-toothed smile may be cute if you are a child, but adults with gaps between their teeth usually wish for something different. With veneers, we can fill in the gaps.
Veneers are wafer-thin shells that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. Made of dental grade porcelain, they are tooth-colored and have the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Veneers are custom made to fit your teeth and improve your smile.
Planning for Treatment
We do a thorough examination and listen to your ideas for improving your smile. Then, we can take x-rays and impressions. Our dentist creates a plan complete with specific details about how we are going to correct your individual cosmetic issues.
Preparing the Teeth
We may need to remove some of the enamel from your teeth to prepare them to accept the veneers. We shape your teeth if needed so the veneers will fit perfectly on your teeth. When our dentist has completed the preparation, you are ready to get your new veneers.
Custom-Fitting the Veneers
After the veneers are ready, we place them on the fronts of your teeth to check for fit. After attaching them using a light-sensitive adhesive, we shine a special light on the teeth to cure and bond them to your teeth.
Taking Care of Your Veneers
All you have to do to keep your veneers looking gorgeous year after year is to follow your daily oral hygiene routine as usual. Brush twice and floss once every day. Our dentist may also suggest you avoid hard or sticky foods.
