If you want to improve your teeth without braces or extensive surgery, this is the perfect solution. Veneers are an excellent way to reshape your entire mouth and transform your smile. A very thin ceramic shell is created to cover existing teeth correcting many cosmetic dental issues. Some of the most common reasons patients seek treatment are staining, cracked teeth, gaps, uneven tooth length, and chipped teeth. It is also a good solution to repair an injury or undesirable after-effects of a root canal. Natural protective and stain resistant qualities can prevent other expensive dental work in the future. Bonded to the visible surface of teeth, covers are custom designed for exact fit and correct shade for your perfect smile makeover.
The entire process usually takes place in only two to three visits with minimal to no anesthesia. During the first visit, we discuss the new shape and look we will accomplish. You are an active part of the process, sharing your opinions and expectations to help the doctor decide what's right for you. Once the plan is in place, teeth are carefully prepared for the placement of your new smile. A minimal amount of enamel is removed, or shaved away, to make room for the additional material. This ensures the final result won't be thick and bulky. The surface is also made rough for proper adhesion.
We take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. Your unique mold ensures the individually sculpted veneers will be practically impossible to distinguish from natural teeth. Then, we choose the right shade for your perfect smile. The mold is sent to a dental laboratory for the final product to be created. Fabrication and shipment can take 10–14 days, after which your final appointment will be scheduled. If necessary, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution while you wait, however, generally the preparation is so minimal you won't need this option.
Before placing the final product, teeth are cleaned to produce a durable connection. A strong dental adhesive is applied, and we bond the porcelain into place, curing the adhesive with a special light. The color and fit are fine-tuned for a natural look and comfortable shape, making them feel like your natural teeth. The process ensures you will enjoy your new smile for years to come. This treatment is the best way to get that perfect smile and still look like yourself!
