We have an array of cosmetic treatment options to help our patients enjoy more attractive smiles, from professional teeth whitening to Invisalign® clear aligners. However, one option addresses more than just a single cosmetic flaw. With veneers, we can completely transform your smile in as little as two visits.
Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
Question: How do they improve a smile’s appearance?
Answer: We place them onto the front of the teeth, which allows them to alter the tooth’s appearance. We’ve placed them to repair minor damage or reshape a malformed tooth. They can lengthen teeth and close gaps between teeth. We’ve used to them mask discoloration and to also correct the appearance of minor misalignment.
Question: What does placing one involve?
Answer: First, we need to make room for them by removing a small layer of tooth enamel. We then take detailed impressions of the tooth, which will be used at a dental lab to design and fabricate the restoration. Once complete, we place the restoration onto the front of the teeth using a powerful bonding agent.
Question: Why do you use porcelain?
Answer: We use porcelain to create them due to the material’s strength and ability to mimic the appearance of outer tooth enamel. The material is also stain-resistant as well. Along with veneers, we also use the same material in dental crowns.
Question: How do you maintain the new restorations?
Answer: Once in place, you can take steps to ensure your new restoration continues to look natural and stay strong. We suggest brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day to prevent plaque buildup. We also recommend a dental cleaning every six months to remove plaque and tartar, and also allowing the dentist to monitor the restoration.
