Dental veneers are an ideal form of cosmetic dentistry for people who have teeth that are damaged or irregularly shaped or colored. For people with dental anxiety, veneers can be an excellent method for obtaining a great smile without having to deal with discomfort or extended time in the chair.

Contact us today if:

  • You want a broken tooth (or teeth) to look like they used to
  • You have discolored teeth that do not look better after teeth whitening treatments
  • One or more of your teeth are irregularly shaped

How are Dental Veneers Applied?

Your dentist will look at your teeth, take a mold, and then build new veneers to perfectly fit your teeth. Because they are made to fit your teeth, they will look very natural in your mouth, and they will feel natural, too. Thanks to a strong adhesive, you won’t have to worry about a veneer coming loose or falling off.

WHAT ARE VENEERS?

Veneers, also known as laminates, are used to enhance the appearance of your teeth in a very conservative, yet highly effective manner. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are shaped into cap-like shells that are customized to match your existing teeth in color and shape.

Veneers are bonded to your existing teeth to reshape them without changing your real teeth. You may need veneers if you have broken or irregular teeth or discolored teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments. Our goal is to give you a reason to love your smile again.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS About Dental Veneers

CAN I GET VENEERS?

Veneers are a great alternative to crowns and caps. If you have gaps in your smile, broken teeth, chipped teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers may be for you. To find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers, contact us today.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I GET VENEERS?

Before you get a veneer, the surface of your existing tooth must be properly prepared. After administering a local anesthetic, we’ll buff the surface of your tooth. Then, you will be asked to bite into a mold. That mold will be used to create your veneer. Once your veneer is ready, you will come back in so we can bond it to your tooth and adjust its color and fit.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I GET MY VENEER?

There is no need for special care after you get your veneer. Though you may experience some sensitivity between your first and second appointment, it will quickly subside as soon as your veneer is attached. Brush and floss your teeth as you normally do.
