Veneers are a great option for making immediate improvements to your smile. They are thin, wafer-like shells that are applied on the front surface of your teeth eliminating noticeable flaws.
There are a wide variety of uses for veneers, such as:
- Color adjustments
- Correcting misshapen or crooked teeth
- Repairing damaged or chipped teeth
- Adjusting the size of teeth
Veneers appear like healthy, white tooth enamel, and they appear completely natural. They are also stain resistant, so they are not prone to discolorations. Before veneers can be attached, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed. This is to accommodate for the space of the veneer. Impressions are taken, and a color that matches your natural teeth will be chosen. This information is shared with the laboratory that will custom-make your veneers. Before attaching the veneer, etching gel will be used to roughen the surface of the teeth allowing the veneers to properly bond with the teeth. The veneers will then be applied on the surface of the teeth and secured.
