Why should I consider veneers?
Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual teeth to ensure flawless results. Then, Dr. Hebda at Complete Health Dentistry bonds the veneers to your current teeth. Veneers can makeover a less-than-perfect smile, covering blemishes such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore weak teeth. Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. With advanced training in veneers, Dr. Hebda can help you evaluate your choices and recommend the best type of veneers for you.
What is the procedure for getting dental veneers?
After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you return for a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers. When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
Veneers can transform your smile and improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:
- Resistance to stains
- Well-tolerated by your gums
- Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
