Veneers are thin, porcelain shells placed over the front of teeth to improve their appearance. At Willow Glen Dental Care, they are custom-made to fit each patient individually and bonded to the front of each tooth to improve their look. Veneers are great for correcting the look of chipped teeth or teeth stained from trauma or tetracycline use. They are also an excellent option for closing gaps between teeth and covering the appearance of minor misalignments.
The Advantages of Veneers
There are several advantages to choosing veneers for your teeth or cosmetic treatment. They are natural-looking, durable, and stain-resistant. Their color also blends well with your existing teeth, making them inconspicuous. Your smile will look straight and perfect without anyone noticing you had them installed. They cover up any flaws like chips, cracks, stains, and even gaps between your teeth. They also help strengthen your teeth so you won’t experience sensitivity issues. These are custom-made to fit perfectly over your teeth to give you a seamless finish. The procedure is pain-free and quick. It usually takes a couple of appointments to perfect your smile with veneers.
Placing and Bonding Veneers
Our dentist may recommend placing one or multiple veneers, depending on the size, exact shape, and color of the teeth that need to be covered. The veneer is bonded to the tooth's front surface to seal it and cover any stains, chips, cracks, or other aesthetic issues on the tooth’s surface.
After your teeth have been prepared, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth, which is sent to a dental laboratory to be fabricated. While your permanent veneers are constructed, you may receive a set of temporary veneers to give you the appearance of your new smile while you wait for your restorations to be made. Once your final restorations are complete, you will return to the dentist to have your provisional veneers removed and permanent ones bonded to your teeth.
When your permanent veneers arrive at our office, we will call you to schedule your appointment to receive your new smile. The appointment length will depend on the number and type of restorations you receive. We will discuss the details of your procedure with you before your treatment to help you feel fully prepared for what to expect when you receive your beautiful new smile. After treatment, the tooth will look natural and healthy, and the patient will be able to floss and brush as usual.
