VENEERS

 

 If you are looking to improve your smile, beautiful, custom-fitted veneers can provide the answer.
What Are Veneers? Veneers are thin, custom-made moldings that cover the fronts of unsightly teeth. They are crafted from tooth-colored, high-tech materials to portray a natural, bright smile

Should You Consider Veneers?

Veneers provide an alternative to traditional crowns. They cover unattractive gaps, and can mask stained, misshapen, or crooked teeth. If these conditions apply to yourmouth, veneers may be your best option.


How Long Will Veneers Last?

Veneers are intended to last for many years. Unlike most bonding materials, veneers will not change color over time.

How Are Veneers Applied?

The tooth is reshaped initially to allow for the added thickness of the veneer. A molded image is taken from the tooth and sent to a dental laboratory where the veneer is custom-fitted to your mouth. The veneer is applied with adhesive material which bonds it to the original tooth structure.

Advantages of Veneers Tooth-like Appearance.Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the veneer and the natural tooth. Stain-Resistant Custom made veneers resist stains from coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech, extremely polishable materials

 

Benefits of Veneers
A minimal amount of the natural tooth must be altered to fit the veneer.
Veneers can be matched to make even the darkest teeth appear to be bright white.
Minor twists and overlaps, as well as small gaps, can be quickly corrected through the use of veneers.

Maintaining Your Veneers
Here are some tips for making sure your veneers stay sparking:
Brush and Floss Regularly to Prevent Oral Hygiene Problems
Veneers generally can not be damaged by abrasion from your toothbrush or floss. Good oral hygiene will ensure your veneers stay strong and provide you with a long-lasting, attractive smile.

Keep In Mind
When considering veneers, there are some important points to consider before undergoing the treatment. Anesthetic Advised
Generally, the use of local anesthetic is advised to maintain absolute comfort throughout the treatment process. Strength of Veneers
Veneers provide more strength when crushing an object than twisting or tearing. Therefore, just as with natural teeth, patients with veneers are advised to avoid opening nut shells, chewing on bones, or any other matter that may cause the veneers to chip or crack.
