Cosmetic Dentistry- Veneers


Veneers are made from porcelain, so it is a very thin, but yet tough material that is durable and has a very long lifespan. They are customized by the: fit, size, shape, and color by a professional dental laboratory

Purpose of Veneers
- Veneers can redesign and reshape your teeth and ultimately bring your smile back to life
- They are often seen as a great alternative to crowns when treating a variety of oral conditions

Reasons for Veneers
- To create a symmetrical beautiful white smile
- Crooked or bent teeth
- Teeth in wrong places
- Discolored/stained teeth
- Gum line and size of teeth are not uniform
- Unwanted gaps or spaces in teeth
- Various chipped teeth

The process of Veneers from start to finish

Getting Veneers will take an average of two to three visits. Overall the process is painless and will typically require little to no anesthesia (Novocain) during this procedure. The teeth then are buffed lightly which will allow the thickness of the veneer to be custom fitted. Next an impression (mold) of the teeth is taken for both the upper and lower teeth. To end the first visit you and your dentist will pick out a shade that you think is appropriate or desired.

During the second visit your teeth will be cleansed with special liquids in order to achieve a durable bond. Lastly bonding cement is carefully placed between each tooth and its veneer. Following the cement, a special light is then used to harden/set the bond.

After all is said and done, you will post procedure instructions. In a sense they are basic maintenance directions. Like always, proper oral hygiene (brushing, flossing, correct diet, and regular dental visits) will aid in the life of your new Veneers.
