Get that movie-star smile you’ve always dreamed of
Are you obsessed with your favorite celebrity’s perfect teeth? Does the idea of a picture-perfect smile intrigue you? Dental Veneers can give the Hollywood smile you’ve always wanted and keep your smile looking amazing for decades.
What are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a custom-made ceramic or porcelain shell that adheres to the front surface of your tooth. Each veneer is created in a natural-looking shade that you and your dentist will decide on in advance. When placed on the front-facing teeth, dental veneers dramatically change the way your teeth look.
What to Expect with Dental Veneers
For proper adherence, your teeth will need to be prepared before your dentist can place the veneers. While the preparation process is a bit more intensive than with bonding, the end result will last much longer.
You will need more than one appointment to complete treatment with dental veneers. The first appointment is to choose the shade you want and take impressions and digital images of your teeth, which will be used as the basis to fabricate your veneers to the exact specifications of your teeth. Once your veneers have been custom made for your, you will come back to our office to have them bonded in place. Your dentist will make sure you are completely satisfied with the result before you leave.
Caring for your Dental Veneers
Veneers are permanent and don’t require replacement for ten to twenty years. While dental veneers are stain resistant, they are made of material that will scratch if treated too harshly. We highly recommend gentle brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush once your veneers are in places. Of course, good oral hygiene, including regular exams and cleanings, is essential to keep your veneers looking pristine.
