Dental veneers can completely transform your smile for the better with minimal work involved. More patients are opting for veneers because little to no anesthesia is required to obtain the smile that you’ve always wanted to have.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are made out of thin porcelain shells that are created to look like real teeth. Once cemented onto the fronts of your teeth, you will have a seamless smile that stands out and helps to cover up issues that would otherwise take a lot of work to correct. For this reason, many patients who want a more cost-effective cosmetic option are choosing dental veneers.
Who is a good candidate for Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are ideal for lots of different individuals, but an exam and series of x-rays will be taken to ensure that they are the right option for you. Some of the reasons people choose veneers include:
- You have staining or discoloration on your front teeth
- You have small chips and cracks that would take a lot of work to correct
- You have gaps between your teeth
- You have slight misalignment issues
What is the procedure like?
The procedure for having veneers made and placed is both easy and quick. First, impressions will be made so that the veneers can be created specifically for you in a lab. The veneers are then placed on top of the teeth to ensure the proper fit. They will be trimmed according to your tooth to create the perfect fit. Once the veneer has been properly measured to fit your tooth, your teeth will then be cleaned and polished then etched to make the tooth rough. By making the tooth rough it allows for a stronger bonding process. A permanent dental cement is then added and the veneer will then be placed on your tooth. Once they have been cemented on to the tooth, a specialty light is used to quickly harden the cement. The finishing touches are done and a follow up appointment will be set up. Little to no anesthesia is required to have the veneers placed, and once finished you will have a beautiful new smile.
