What Dental Problems Can Veneers Solve?
Dental veneers help to fix several different dental issues including worn enamel, uneven teeth, discolored, chipped, crooked, spaced, and misshapen teeth. The protective layer of enamel that surrounds our teeth can get dull over time and affect the color of the teeth. They also help to further protect the surface of the teeth.
Dental Veneers Procedure
Dental veneers are made up of thin tooth-colored shells that cover the surface of each individual tooth. The entire application procedure will take only a few appointments to the dentist office. Our dentist will begin by completing a thorough examination of your smile and decide if dental veneers are right for you. They will then take a series of x-rays and impressions of your smile. During your next appointment, your dentist will remove a small area of the enamel in preparation of the dental veneers application. You will be provided a local anesthetic prior to trimming the enamel to avoid any discomfort or pain during the procedure. They will then take another impression and send it to a lab where they will create the veneers. Your final appointment will be cementing the dental veneers in place.
