If you are one who disapproves of their smile because of its many flaws, dental veneers are here to save the day! Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that are built to disguise the imperfections in your smile. This treatment is simple and painless, and it is recommended if you have one or more of the following characteristics in your smile:
• Discolored teeth
• Worn down teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Broken teeth
• Misaligned teeth
• Teeth with gaps between them
If you are interested in this beneficial cosmetic treatment, we invite you to call our office today and schedule an appointment. During your appointment, your dentist will numb the area surrounding the tooth with a local anesthetic. Then, he will trim a small amount of enamel off the front surface of your tooth to make room for the veneer. When your tooth is ready, your dentist will make an impression of your tooth and will send that impression to the dental lab where your veneer will be created. Once the veneer is made, the technicians will send the veneer back to our office and we will have you come in for a second visit. Before cementing the veneer into place, your dentist will check the fit and color of the veneer, making sure it fits perfectly with your smile. Then, if everything is correct, he will permanently cement the veneer onto the front surface of your tooth.
