Dental Veneers

Book Today.

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. They are made of either porcelain or composite resin and are bonded to the teeth to create a natural-looking, durable, and stain-resistant surface.

The process of getting dental veneers typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and determine if veneers are the appropriate treatment option for you. They will discuss the procedure, answer any questions you may have, and take X-rays and impressions of your teeth.
  • Preparation: To prepare for the veneer placement, your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of your tooth. This allows for the veneer to fit snugly on your tooth.
  • Impression: After the tooth has been prepared, your dentist will take an impression of the tooth, which will be used to create the custom-made veneer.
  • Temporary Veneer: While the permanent veneer is being made, your dentist may place a temporary veneer to protect the prepared tooth.
  • Bonding: Once the permanent veneer is ready, your dentist will remove the temporary veneer and place the permanent veneer over your tooth. They will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the veneer fits properly and looks natural. The veneer is then bonded to your tooth using a special adhesive.

Dental veneers can be used to address several cosmetic concerns, including:

  1. Discoloration: Veneers can be used to cover stained or discolored teeth that cannot be treated with teeth whitening.
  2. Misalignment: Veneers can be used to correct the appearance of slightly crooked or misaligned teeth.
  3. Gaps: Veneers can be used to close small gaps between teeth.
  4. Chipped or Worn Teeth: Veneers can be used to restore the appearance of teeth that are chipped or worn.

Overall, dental veneers are an effective cosmetic dental treatment that can transform the appearance of your smile. However, they may not be suitable for everyone, and it’s essential to discuss all available options with your dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
