What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are natural-looking, thin, custom-made shells that are crafted in a dental lab. They are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth to change their color, size, shape, or length. For the best results possible, they are bonded to the tooth, which can help them enhance your smile for years.
What can dental veneers do for me?
Dental veneers can help you have the appearance you’re looking for. In fact, they can improve a tooth that takes the beauty away from your smile to give you the results you desire. With the help of dental veneers, you can hide your tooth imperfections, provide natural-looking results, boost your self-esteem, and give you the smile you’re proud of.
What is the process of placing dental veneers?
Your dentist will start by numbing your tooth with a local anesthetic. Then, she will trim the enamel of your tooth to create room for the shell. When that step is completed, she will make impressions of your tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab where dental technicians will craft your veneer. When the veneer is ready, the technicians will send it to our office and our dentist will successfully bond it to your tooth.
