Information about Veneer Treatments:
Veneers, also called lumineers, are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that adhere to the surface of the teeth. Veneers help correct minor dental issues such as cracks, chips, and discolorations. Veneers alter the appearance of their shape and color to enhance your smile and give you an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers work to protect the outer surface of the teeth from any further damage caused by trauma, discoloration, or enamel erosion. This form of dental treatment works primarily for adults who have both visual and minor health problems with their teeth and can provide them with an excellent solution that removes those problems and creates an entirely new smile in the process. At our practice, we advise veneers as a treatment option for adults who have dental issues such as:
- Teeth worn down over time due to conditions such as bruxism and thus have lost their former shape
- Teeth chipped and broken due to previous dental trauma.
- Teeth appearing uneven in alignment or have irregular shapes that leave the teeth more prone to trauma and infections
- Teeth with large gaps between them due to malocclusion
- Teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected with teeth whitening treatments.
Veneers don’t just provide a pretty-looking shell. They also provide patients with a practical solution to their oral health that doesn’t involve tooth extractions and complete restorations. Veneers are easy to wear, fix many minor dental problems, and most importantly, replace damaged enamel that’s been destroyed by acidic foods and health conditions such as acid reflux. Because the loss of enamel cannot grow back, veneers may be the solution you need to regain that healthy smile and have long-lasting oral health.
The Steps Behind Our Veneers Treatment
Our dentists will first assess the condition of your teeth through a dental exam and cleaning session to diagnose any oral conditions or related health issues. Once we’ve determined your customized treatment plan, at your next follow-up appointment, our dentists will determine the shade of your teeth that matches your smile the best and then create impressions of your teeth to fabricate the veneers. Once fully fabricated and delivered to our office, our dentists will adhere the veneers to your teeth one-by-one to create an even bite and an aesthetically pleasing smile that highlights your features best.
