Veneers have many indications especially for cosmetic issues such as to close a space you may be self-conscious about or to repair chipping or discoloration. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of the patient’s tooth.
A veneer is made in two appointments.
The first appointment is preparing the tooth by removing a thin layer to allow space for the veneer to be placed. Then an impression of the prepared tooth is taken and sent to the dental lab where the veneer is custom made. After taking the impression we will make a temporary restoration.You will look and feel like yourself when leaving your initial appointment.
The impression that is sent to the lab is then made into the veneer. The lab is able to match the shade and shape so that the veneer blends into the surrounding teeth. At the second appointment, the veneer is then bonded and cemented into place. You will have a beautiful new smile.
Our office offers at home teeth whitening which we have found to be very effective and safe. We typically expect to see your teeth whiten about 3 shades.
