Veneers are an excellent , less invasive, way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Veneers are a very thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you are able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, and chipped teeth.
In terms of the process to place veneers, it will take approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we will discuss the new look and shape of your teeth and what we are going to accomplish during placement. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth so that the veneers can fit over them. The way veneers differ from crowns is that they are substantially thinner, meaning, that the prep of the tooth is much less invasive. Crowns can sometimes lead to a substantial amount of natural tooth being lost in order for the crown to fit over the prepared tooth. Veneers are an excellent esthetic alternative. As we complete the prepping process, an impression of the newly prepared teeth will be taken. This impression will then be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. We only utilize the highest quality lab for the fabrication of all of our work.
As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time!
