What You Need to Know About Dental Veneers

Affectionate couple

If you would like to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, or uneven, talk to your dentist about getting dental veneers. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry option that will beautify your smile, and the procedure can be performed at your dentist’s office with minimal hassle.

Dental veneers are very thin wafers of porcelain that are secured to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Despite their size, dental veneers are quite durable and resilient. The strength of a veneer is comparable to that of your tooth’s natural enamel.

Each veneer is custom-fitted to each individual tooth for a completely natural appearance. Once the veneers are on, no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing them. They will, however, notice the improvement in your smile. Dental veneers can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, or you might choose to go a few shades whiter. Dental veneers are also resistant to staining from coffee, tea, and other foods and beverages.

Talk to your dentist about whether dental veneers are right for you. You may be a good candidate for this cosmetic dentistry procedure if you have discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth. Dental veneers are also a good choice for correcting gaps between teeth. Discuss your goals for your smile with your dentist before you opt for dental veneers.

After the initial evaluation appointment with your dentist, you will need a second dentist appointment to remove a very thin layer of enamel to prepare the teeth for the veneers. Your dentist will also make an impression of your teeth so that a laboratory can customize your new dental veneers. Once your veneers are ready, you’ll return to your dentist’s office to have them applied with special adhesive material.
