What are veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the surface of your teeth. Not only can veneers hide imperfections, such as cracks or discoloration, they also add polish and uniformity to your smile.
Porcelain is a strong, stain-resistant material that allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks without worrying about staining your smile.
What can veneers fix?
Veneers allow you to change the appearance of your teeth while masking common dental concerns, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Teeth worn from grinding
- Misaligned teeth
- Large gaps in teeth
- Crooked teeth
Along with hiding imperfections, veneers help protect your teeth from further damage and decay. Even if you only have minor cosmetic concerns, many people get veneers to make their smiles perfect. Many people holding jobs that are highly-visible with the public opt for veneers so they can always look their best.
What is the process like for veneers?
Veneers typically take at least 2-3 visits to plan and place. At your first appointment, Dr. Madani examines your smile and takes digital X-rays to make sure your underlying tooth structures are healthy.
To prepare your teeth for veneers, Dr. Madani removes a small portion of enamel. This helps make room for your veneers, so they look natural and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Next, Dr. Madani takes impressions to create your custom-made veneers. While you wait for your veneers over the next 2-3 weeks, you’ll wear temporary veneers.
When you return to the office, Dr. Madani cleans and etches your teeth to help the veneers bond to the surface. He then assesses the veneers to make sure they’re the proper fit and color.
If necessary, he may make adjustments to the veneers to ensure they fit comfortably and blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth.
Once your veneers are perfectly placed, Dr. Madani uses a special light and dental cement to bond them in place. Finally, he cleans and removes any residue from your veneers.
Veneers are strong and resilient restorations to customize your smile. If you’re interested in learning more about porcelain veneers, call Comfort Dental Mason or schedule an appointment online today.
