Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. Made from durable and stain-resistant materials like porcelain or composite resin, veneers can effectively address a variety of dental concerns. Whether you're dealing with chipped, discolored, misaligned, or unevenly spaced teeth, these versatile cosmetic restorations can help create a beautifully uniform smile.

How Are Dental Veneers Placed?

Placing dental veneers is a straightforward process that typically requires two visits to our Central dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface. This helps create space for the veneer and ensures a proper fit. Next, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which are then sent to a dental laboratory where custom-made veneers are created. While you wait for the permanent veneers to be made, temporary ones may be placed on your teeth.

Once the final veneers are ready, you'll return for a second appointment. Our dentist will carefully bond each veneer to its corresponding tooth using dental cement. They will make any necessary adjustments to ensure they fit comfortably and blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. After placement, you can expect some minor sensitivity as you adjust to wearing veneers. However, this discomfort should subside within a few days.

Getting dental veneers is a relatively simple procedure that can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile!

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Enhancing your smile and boosting your confidence are just a few of the benefits that dental veneers can offer. These thin shells, usually made from porcelain or composite resin, are custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth.

  • One major advantage of dental veneers is their ability to improve the appearance of discolored teeth. Whether you have stubborn stains from coffee or tobacco use or if your teeth have become yellowed with age, veneers can help restore a bright and white smile.
  • Another benefit is that veneers can address various cosmetic concerns, such as chipped or broken teeth. By covering up unsightly chips or cracks, they provide a natural-looking solution for achieving a more even and uniform smile.
  • Dental veneers also offer durability and long-lasting results. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, they can last for many years without losing their shine or becoming damaged.
  • Getting veneers is a minimally invasive procedure compared to other cosmetic treatments like crowns or braces. The process typically involves minimal tooth reshaping, making it less uncomfortable and faster in comparison.
  • One often overlooked benefit of dental veneers is that they require little maintenance after placement. Simply continue practicing good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice daily and flossing regularly to ensure their longevity.
