Dental veneers are made up of a thin porcelain material. They are customized with shape, size, and color to each individual tooth. Dental veneers help to improve a wide range of functions for an individual’s smile and are used for several reasons including crooked and misshapen teeth, discolored or yellow teeth, improve the size of a tooth, fix large gaps between teeth, worn or chipped teeth, or to improve the cosmetic appearance of the smile.
Getting a dental veneer placed my take a couple of visits to our dental clinic. Your dentist or hygienist will begin by properly cleaning and buffing the affected tooth/teeth. They will also shape the enamel to better prepare for the dental veneer. A mold of your teeth will then be provided and together with the help of your dentist, you will choose a shade of color for your new dental veneer. During your next visit to our clinic, the dentist will prepare the tooth for a secure bond. A bond will be placed between your tooth and the bond and then hardened with the use of a light.
Carefully following the instructions given to you by your dentist after your placement will allow your dental veneers to benefit you for a long period of time. Contact our dental clinic today for more information regarding dental veneers for your smile.
