A dental veneer is a wafer-like restoration made using composite resin or porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth to make it look better. Since the placement of veneers is a non-invasive procedure, they are considered a great choice to alter the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain is becoming an increasingly popular choice for veneers as it can be made to perfectly mimic the color and shine of a natural tooth.
In many situations, porcelain veneers prove to be a great alternative to dental crowns as they offer a more conservative option for altering the esthetics of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for:
- Stained teeth
- Damaged and injured teeth
- Teeth that look damaged after a root canal procedure
- Front teeth that have discolored fillings
- Teeth with gaps
- Chipped teeth
Our experts will plan your smile makeover with your input. We will also help you understand the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. Before the application of veneers, the tooth surface is cleaned and slightly buffed and the veneer is bonded and sculpted to the surface of the tooth. In case you opt for ceramic veneers, a mold of the teeth is taken and sent to a dental lab to prepare a custom veneer. A temporary veneer may be placed until the permanent one is ready.
You may go through a period of adjustment for a week or two after your new veneers have been placed. You should take care of your new smile with daily brushing and flossing and visit our clinic for follow-up appointments.
When properly applied and cared for, veneers can last for a number of years. Improve your smile with these minimally invasive restorations today. Visit your nearest Dental Crown in an Hour location today!
