A Guide to Dental Veneers and How We Use Them

Dental veneers are an awesome tool that many dentists have prescribed to their patients as a way to fix a plethora of different problems. Dental veneers have time and time again proved to be one of the most versatile tools that we have on our tool belt to encourage your teeth to repair and rejuvenate themselves. Most dental veneers are made by using porcelain in order to achieve a natural and seamless finish. In essence, veneers are paper thin pieces of porcelain that are able to mimic the tooth enamel perfectly to give you a smile that you may not have been able to achieve naturally.

In the following article were going to discuss why dental veneers are so important, how they’re placed, and how they can be used in order to enhance your quality of life.

How Are Dental Veneers Placed?

Dental veneers typically begin at an initial consultation at our office. Here, by speaking with you, we can determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for dental veneers. At this stage in the process, your teeth is in evaluated and a smile analysis is done in order to find out what kind of smile you’re seeking. By the next appointment, a small portion of the tooth enamel is shaved down to allow the porcelain veneer to fit snugly on your tooth. Then an impression of the teeth is made in order to make a custom veneer. In between the time that the custom veneer is being made to the time that it is finally placed in your mouth, a temporary set of dental veneers is placed in the mouth to ensure that you are not left with a tooth that does not function right.

What Are Dental Veneers Used For?

Dental veneers are typically used to fix teeth that have been cracked, broken, or chipped. Dental veneers are an alternative option to dental crowns, which require a much greater amount of removing the natural enamel. Porcelain veneers can also help patients that are seeking to whiten their teeth, adjust their bite, and minimize or maximize the shape of their teeth.
