Your smile is important as it says a lot about you, especially when making a good first impression. Sometimes the teeth in your smile can become chipped, heavily stained or suffer from a minor amount of tooth decay.These teeth might not necessarily need crowns, but none-the-less you still might want to do something to improve their appearance.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom designed to fit over the front face and sides of your teeth to improve your smile.
During the procedure the dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to dental lab where the veneers are crafted specifically to fit your mouth as well as the bright white color you desire.
At your follow up visit the dentist will then remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth that will receive a veneer. Then each veneer is cemented in place giving you a fresh white smile.
Afterward your dentist might advise you to refrain from activities that could stain your teeth, this includes certain foods, dark beverages and of course tobacco use.
Veneers are an investment, so it’s a wise idea to be well educated on how to safely and effectively maintain them.
