What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or resin composite material that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of your existing teeth. They are designed to improve the appearance of your teeth and provide a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
What’s involved in getting veneers?
The process of getting veneers usually requires two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and taking an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where the veneers are fabricated to fit your teeth perfectly.
During the second visit, your dentist will bond the veneers to your teeth using a special dental adhesive. The veneers are then cured with a special light to harden the adhesive. Finally, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper fit and that your bite is comfortable.
Are veneers permanent?
Veneers are durable and long-lasting, but they are not immune to chipping or breaking. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene and avoid habits that may damage your veneers, such as grinding your teeth or biting on hard objects. With proper care, dental veneers can last for many years.
In conclusion, dental veneers are a cosmetic solution for improving the appearance of your teeth, making them a popular option for those looking to enhance their smile. Talk to your one of our team to determine if veneers are the right option for you.
