One cosmetic procedure that almost any patient can qualify for is dental veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are small sheets of porcelain that are cemented to the outer surface of your teeth that come together and create a brand new smile. Veneers are custom made to your teeth, meaning they will match each tooth’s distinct anatomy. Veneers have the ability to change many different characteristics of your teeth including:
- Gaps in your teeth
- Lengthen your teeth
- Correcting chips
- Create a straighter smile
- Help improve discoloration and stains by changing smile shade
Veneers are a permanent solution to any of these issues listed and can help you feel more confident in your smile.
What is the Process?
The process of veneers begins with a consultation with the dentist. You will speak with the dentist about all of the characteristics and changes you are hoping to make, and what you desire your new smile to look like. Impressions of your teeth will be made and minor buffing and shaving down of your enamel will be done to create room for the veneers. Impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory with the exact changes wanted, to assist the creators in making your veneers.
At the second visit, the veneers will be fitted and bonded to your teeth using a dental adhesive and a blue light. Veneers will appear and function as your natural teeth, so it is important to maintain good oral hygiene and continue with your bi-yearly checkups.
