Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers hide defects like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. They also help strengthen weak teeth.
Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.
The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you return for a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. After your teeth have been prepared, your dental specialist makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.
When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
Veneers provide a natural-looking way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. They offer these benefits, too:
