As we age our smile can start to dull. Certain foods and dark beverages can deeply stain our teeth. At the same time, minor chips in the front teeth can also happen. All of these things can leave you a less than perfect smile. If you feel this way, then you might be the perfect candidate for dental veneers.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells, custom crafted in a laboratory to match the shape and contours of the teeth in your smile.
During your initial consultation, the dentist will inspect your teeth or any signs of tooth decay or compromised enamel. This usually involves a series of X-rays. Once it has been determined that you have enough healthy enamel, the dentist will then create an impression of your teeth. This will be sent to a lab where they craft your custom veneers.
Once the new veneers are made, you will come in for a second appointment where the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers are then cemented in place. With proper care and maintenance your veneers can provide you with an appealing bright white smile for a long time to come.
