Veneers provide an opportunity for people to make their smiles look better and, as a result, give their self-esteem a significant boost. At Edgewater Dental, we provide veneer placement services that would help cover up your teeth’s deformities and enhance your smile. We do so after determining that veneers are the appropriate treatment and providing you with everything you need to know to make an informed decision in having veneers placed.
What Are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer is a very thin shell made of porcelain or composite material that is bonded to the front surface of a prepared tooth. This is done to rectify certain dental issues like uneven alignment, discoloration, chipped teeth, worn-out enamel, and large spaces between teeth. Veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth and match their color.
Who Would Need Veneers?
People who have teeth that are worn out, cracked, discolored, misaligned, or misshapen teeth would greatly benefit from having veneers. If you have teeth that have damage that is visible but not so bad that it warrants the placement of a dental crown, you might want to consider having veneers placed.
How Are Veneers Placed?
The first thing our dentist will do is determine if placing veneers is the best and appropriate treatment for your particular dental issues. They will also check to see if your teeth and gums are healthy enough for you to get veneers. If there are issues like decay and oral disease, they will need to be treated first before proceeding to veneer placement.
When everything is ready, the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the surfaces of the teeth where the veneer will be placed. Then, the dentist will make an impression of the prepared teeth, which will be the basis for the custom fabrication of the veneers. Meanwhile, our dentist may give you temporary veneers to wear.
When the veneers are ready, the temporary ones are removed and replaced with the permanent, custom-made ones. Our dentist will check if the veneers fit well and make adjustments if needed. Then, the dentist will clean the teeth and bond the veneers to them.
