Dental Veneers Help You Achieve Your Most-Beautiful Smile
Many people have problems with their teeth that don’t need significant work, but they do make teeth unattractive. This can include stains that can’t be treated with whitening, chips or damage, uneven spacing, and other problems.
Fortunately, you don’t have to hide your smile forever. Dental veneers are a simple cosmetic treatment that can give you a natural-looking, durable tooth surface quickly and easily. Veneers are wafer-thin and permanently affix to the front of your teeth.
These shells allow your dentist to change the color, shape, or even the size of your tooth so that it better matches your other teeth. Porcelain dental veneers look the most natural, but you can also have a veneer made with resin composite materials.
If you get veneers, your dentist will start by reshaping your tooth so that the veneer will adhere properly and sit naturally. This involves adding a thin layer to your tooth surface. Then, they take a model of your tooth and send it to a dental laboratory so a custom veneer can be made to fit you perfectly.
You’ll receive a temporary veneer while the custom model is in process. In a few weeks, you’ll return to the dentist for the final fitting and bonding. In a couple of weeks, you’ll have a final checkup to make sure the placement is still accurate and your gums and teeth look good.
There are a variety of benefits to veneers:
- Gums tolerate the materials well
- Porcelain resists stains
- Veneers provide a natural appearance and can improve color
