What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin shells, usually made from porcelain or resin. Our dentist may suggest using veneers for severe tooth discoloration that cannot be addressed with a whitening treatment. Veneers can also improve the appearance of slightly damaged teeth or even teeth that are the wrong size or shape.
To place a veneer, the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your tooth and may abrade it slightly. Then, an impression of the tooth will be taken. This impression will be used by a dental lab to create your veneer. While the veneer is being crafted, the dentist will place a temporary veneer on your tooth. When your permanent veneer is ready, the dentist will affix it to your tooth and then shape and polish it.
In most cases, a veneer can last up to 10 years before it needs to be replaced. You should continue to brush and floss your tooth as usual since the veneer protects the front of your tooth but leaves the back vulnerable to tooth decay.
If you have one or two teeth that could use some help, or if you would just like to add something special to your smile, call our office for an appointment with our dentist for your dental veneers.
