Dental veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth in order to change their shape, cover up discoloration or fill in gaps between teeth. They are bonded to the tooth and are expertly matched to the color of your natural teeth for a seamless fit. No one will notice the difference! It’s a safe and minimally invasive procedure that will have you smiling for years to come.
The Dental Veneer Process
To begin the process, we will first find a shade for the veneers that matches your natural tooth color. Then, an impression of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental lab where the veneers will be fabricated. At the following appointment, the dental veneers will be bonded to the surface of the teeth. A UV light will ensure that the bonding agent hardens the veneers in place.
Porcelain veneers can help improve conditions such as:
- Tooth discoloration – Severe stains due to beverages like tea or coffee, large resin fillings, and certain health conditions are issues that whitening treatments may not be able to solve. Veneers can cover the tooth to give you a whiter and brighter smile.
- Worn down, chipped or broken teeth – Teeth can sustain damage due to normal wear and tear, injury or teeth grinding. Porcelain veneers can restore the look of these teeth.
- Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth – Dental veneers can change the shape of teeth to create a uniform look.
- Gaps – Veneers can close the gaps between teeth to provide a more even smile.
