If you are looking to alter the appearance of one or more teeth to give you a beautiful smile, you might want to think about veneers. Veneers are thin shells of approximately .7 millimeters in thickness that go over your teeth to give it a better appearance.
Veneers are great to cover stains on teeth, alter the length, position or size of a tooth and give your smile a better appearance. They are often called laminates as well and can be made out porcelain. The material itself is very long-lasting, and once it has been bonded to your tooth, it makes it stronger and prevents your teeth from future dental issues. The material itself gives it a very natural tooth coloring that will match your natural teeth and won’t stand out.
In order to make veneers look natural, your dentist needs to prepare your teeth prior to the procedure. On your first visit, your dentist will examine you thoroughly and prep you teeth to create a mold. Before the mold is created, a thin layer of your enamel will be shaven off to make room for the veneer.
Once your teeth are prepped, a mold of your mouth will be taken and then sent to the lab where experts will create custom veneers, using your mold, to create the thin shells. The procedure is completed on your second visit, where the dentist will clean and polish your teeth and apply a bonding agent where the veneer will bond to your tooth. Once they are placed, with the use of a special light that will help it completely bond to your tooth; the veneer will be cured and ready. If there is discomfort or anything needs to be smoothed over. Your dentist will polish and make sure your bite is comfortable, and you are left with an amazingly beautiful smile!
