Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain. They are custom-made to match the precise shape and color that suits your smile best. Veneers are securely bonded onto the front of the teeth to reveal your most beautiful smile.
Because they are permanently affixed to the front side of the teeth, veneers enhance or restore the size, shape, and color of your teeth and overall appearance. They are also a less-invasive alternative to dental crowns when issues are only cosmetic. With proper care and protection from force and trauma, dental veneers can be expected to last for many years. They can even work like instant orthodontics, quickly improving the alignment of slightly gapped or crooked teeth. Misshapen teeth can be improved, too — especially ones that are too pointy or short. All in all, dental veneers can fix just about any cosmetic imperfection by simply covering up the problem.
Sometimes, we can create a porcelain veneer in just one visit to our office with the help of CEREC one-visit technology. Other times, we may complete your veneers over the span of two visits.
First, we will prepare your teeth to receive the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface. Then, we will take impressions of your teeth for the preparation of the veneers. We’ll choose the precise shade and shape that will suit your facial structure and smile goals best. After your veneers have been prepared, we will check to ensure they are just what we planned for, and then we’ll securely affix them onto the front side of your teeth.
