Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that completely alters the front portion of your teeth. Veneers are among the most popular cosmetic procedures because of their ability to correct multiple issues with the same treatment.
Once the treatment of choice for celebrities and public figures, dental veneers are now available to virtually everyone thanks to advancements in dental technology. They offer the chance to achieve the smile of your dreams without coming in for multiple different treatments.
Veneers act as a kind of “shell” that fits directly over your natural teeth. Most people only have veneers placed on their upper front teeth, extending back as far as their smile naturally widens.
Veneers can address numerous dental concerns, and they’re a great option for many people. Some of the issues veneers can improve include:
If you have more than one of these concerns, veneers can be an affordable option as compared to multiple different cosmetic treatments.
Your dentist will remove a small portion of your natural tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. Impressions are made to determine the exact size and shape of the prepared teeth as well as the adjacent teeth.
Our team will send the impressions to the lab where your porcelain veneers are crafted to achieve a perfect fit. You’ll receive a set of temporary veneers to wait until your new set arrives.
When you return, your dentist removes the temporary veneers and checks the permanent set for fit. They’re cemented in place, and any minor alterations are made.
Because a portion of your tooth tissue is removed during the dental veneer process, this cosmetic treatment is considered permanent. You can expect your new veneers to last 10-15 years or more with proper care, but they will eventually need to be replaced using the same steps outlined above.
