What are dental veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells made of extremely thin porcelain and are designed to cover the front surface of a person’s smile, recreating the natural look of beautiful, healthy teeth. Dental veneers are a permanent option that is often used to correct stained, chipped, decaying or crooked teeth.
Here at South Sound Dental Care, our professionals can perform a Smile Analysis to determine if veneers are a good option for you.
What are some benefits of porcelain veneers?
- — Improving stained teeth
- — Improving chipped, broken and worn-down teeth
- — improving alignment of teeth
Let’s go into more details on each of these below…
Improving Stained Teeth
There are a number of reasons why teeth can become discolored over time. Veneers improve the appearance of stained teeth, giving patients a whiter, brighter smile. Porcelain veneers also effectively resist stains and mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth.
Improving Chipped, Broken and Worn-Down Teeth
If your smile is chipped or broken, veneers are a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s shape and color, also acting as a stronger and more aesthetically pleasing form of cosmetic dentistry.
Improving Alignment of Teeth
Whether your teeth have gaps, are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped, veneers are used to adjust a person’s smile to be perfectly aligned and close up any space in between the teeth by making slight position changes or changes in shape, size, and/or color.
What is the process of getting dental veneers?
Summing it down to three steps:
- #1 Consultation
- #2 Preparation
- #3 Bonding
Let’s go into more depth on these steps…
The first step to getting dental veneers begins with your initial consultation. During this visit, we’ll gain an understanding of the result that you’re trying to achieve and perform a Smile Analysis to determine if veneers are a good choice for you.
Teeth will be prepared to ensure that the veneer fits and functions flawlessly. An impression of the mouth and teeth will be taken and sent off to a dental laboratory where the veneer will be made by a dental technician.
Finally, the veneers will be bonded to the teeth using special cement and beams of light, which quickly creates a strong bond, giving you the smile that you’ve been dreaming of.
