Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front-facing surfaces of the teeth to cover aesthetic imperfections. The natural-looking, durable porcelain can be used to conceal a single damaged tooth or a mouthful of cosmetic flaws. Generally, dental veneers are used to address teeth that are chipped, gapped, misaligned, misshapen, stained, or undersized.
The first step of the veneer process is your initial consultation. At this time, you are able to discuss the goals that you have for your smile with Dr. Langworthy. This way, it can be determined whether or not this restoration can help.
Once it’s confirmed that you make a good candidate for the procedure, a small portion of the enamel is removed from the front-facing surface of the teeth and an impression is made. The impression will be sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be crafted. In the meantime, you are given temporary ones to wear that will protect your teeth and allow you to become accustomed to how your final veneers will feel.
Once your custom veneers are ready, you will be able to return to the practice, and they will be cemented into place. At this time, small adjustments can be made to give you a perfectly comfortable and natural-looking smile!
Veneers have all sorts of benefits for patients who was to achieve a flawless smile. Here are just a handful of them:
