Advantages of veneers
Veneers can fix almost any cosmetic issue in a smile and can fix multiple issues at once, which makes them such a popular cosmetic option. Stained teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, and even small gaps in teeth can all be corrected with veneers. Veneers are made from a thin porcelain shell that fits on the surface of the tooth to change its appearance. The porcelain material resists staining and reflects light, so your smile stays sparkling white.
Getting veneers from your cosmetic dentist
The process of getting new veneers can take a couple of appointments but leaves you with a perfect smile. First, you need to discuss with your dentist everything from the shade of your new smile to the shape of your teeth to design your ideal smile. Some of your teeth may need to be prepared with filing to make a little room around your tooth for the veneer. Once your teeth are prepared, molds of your mouth will be taken. These molds are used to ensure a perfect fit when the veneers are fabricated.
Your veneers are fabricated in a dental lab, a process that may take up to two weeks. Ask your dentist about temporary smile solutions you can wear during this time. At a final appointment, each veneer is bonded into place on the prepared teeth, and you leave the office with your new smile!
