Veneers From Start To Finish
If you have chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth, veneers are the perfect solution. Veneers are a simple and pain-free way to change the shape of your teeth, fill gaps, and whiten your grin. You may have noticed that celebrities often have perfect-looking teeth, and veneers are often the reason why. If you are unsatisfied with your teeth, veneers might be one way to get the smile you've always wanted.
What are veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of either porcelain or composite resin that your dentist applies to your teeth. They work to change the shape and color of your teeth while looking just like natural teeth!
With traditional veneers, your dentist will prepare your natural tooth by removing a very thin layer so that the veneer will fit over top. Because part of your tooth is removed, this process is not reversible. However, traditional veneers are very versatile to correct a wide range of dental issues. These veneers are very durable and can last a lifetime.
How long does the process take?
After you decide to get veneers, you will visit your dentist to decide on a look you want to achieve. On a second visit, your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth that will be sent to a laboratory. The laboratory will custom create your veneers, which may take up to 2 weeks. On the final visit, your dentist will apply your veneers.
Once your dentist is ready to apply your veneer, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and etched so that the cement forms a strong bond. After the veneer is applied, your dentist will place a special light over your veneers that speeds the cementing process.
