A veneer is attached to the front of the tooth. It is made out of porcelain. Veneers can improve the quality of a smile and serve as a shield for the tooth. They are designed to elevate the position, color, and shape of your teeth. An accurate shade of porcelain will be selected to bring out the perfect color that will correct a single discolored tooth or brighten your front teeth. If a tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer may be a suitable treatment option to bring it into proper alignment with other teeth. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are thin and easily placed on the front of the tooth with a special, strong, gummy material, they are very popular.
You may find that veneers are a good option for you. Perhaps, you want to improve your smile. It is important that any dental procedure is completed by industry professionals who have the right team and the right tools to get properly complete the process. If you need the best possible professional care during your veneer placement procedure, you should speak to our dental team at Jason Widner DMD Family Dentistry.
How Are Teeth Prepared for Veneers?
To prepare your teeth for veneers our trained staff will remove a layer of tooth enamel to ensure proper bonding when the veneer is placed. The quantity of enamel eliminated is small, made to match the same thickness of the veneer that will be fitted so that the overall tooth size is not affected.
A localized injection may be used to ensure that the patient is comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. Once the tooth has been prepared, our dental team will take a mold. We will gather any additional information needed to make your veneer. Our team can match the color of the rest of your remaining natural teeth so the veneer will look entirely natural.
How Long Is the Veneer Procedure?
A veneer will take at least two visits. During the first appointment, our staff will properly prepare the tooth and choose the appropriate color. On the second appointment, we will make sure to fit the veneer properly to the face of the tooth. Before putting it in place, our dental professional will show you where the veneer will be on your tooth to make sure you are satisfied. Our team can make any minor changes needed after the veneer has been fitted to ensure the highest quality appearance. We always check the fitting and polish your veneer after it has been fitted. Veneers should last for many years. However, they are susceptible to chipping or breaking because they are similar in strength to your natural teeth. Our professionals will review this information with you during your visit and ensure that you are familiar with the proper care techniques for your new veneers.
