Are your teeth poorly shaped or crooked? Or are your teeth stained? Improper growth can cause misshapen or crooked teeth. Meanwhile, coffee, smoking, food, wine, or poor care can leave teeth stained and discolored. Veneers are an excellent permanent solution. Veneers are applied on top of cracked, misshapen, crooked, and stained teeth, and they provide protection for those teeth. Moreover, veneers are easy to clean and extremely strong.
Veneers are permanent. Since your dentist will have to scrape off a thin layer of enamel to adhere your veneer, your veneering process will be irreversible. However, veneers are stronger than teeth, and more resistant to wear.
Veneers can be colored to match your other teeth. We’ll apply coloration as we’re going through the final adhesion stage. We’ll attempt to match your natural tooth color in order to make your veneer blend in with the rest of your teeth.
The Veneer Process
To apply a veneer to a tooth, three steps are required:
- First, you’ll meet with our dentist, and we’ll assess your unique situation. We’ll formulate a treatment plan.
- Then, We’ll prepare your specific veneer(s) and call you back for application.
- Finally, we’ll apply the veneer. The application process takes about an hour or two, and we’ll use an anesthetic if necessary.
You’ll treat your veneered tooth just the same as an ordinary tooth. We recommend regular brushing and flossing, and we’ll recommend you follow-up with us to make a final check on your veneer.
As always, if you’re curious about any of our dental procedures, just give us a call. We strive to make you as comfortable as possible! Additionally, we’ve got more veneer information on this linked page.
