Q: What are dental veneers?
A: Dental veneers are very thin shells that are designed to fit over the front surfaces of unattractive teeth. They are made of porcelain and are crafted in a dental lab. They provide natural-looking results.
Q: How can dental veneers help me?
A: Dental veneers can help you and your smile in a myriad of ways. They can: improve teeth that are discolored, help teeth that are worn down, help teeth that are chipped or broken, improve teeth that are misaligned or irregularly shaped and close gaps between teeth. Typically, they can improve the appearance of an unattractive tooth and enhance the entire smile.
Q: What are the treatment steps involved?
A: Our dentists will numb the mouth and then will prepare the tooth receiving the veneer. To do so, they will shave a portion of the tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. Then, they will take impressions of the smile and will send those impressions to a dental lab where technicians will create your veneer. When they are ready, the technicians will send the veneer to our office and our dentists will cement it over the tooth.
