Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance and improve dental aesthetics. At Smile Cafe, this cosmetic treatment can fix many common issues, including teeth that are cracked or chipped, gapped or misshapen, stained, slightly crooked, uneven, or worn. Veneers can also be placed to cover damage resulting from mouth trauma.
Veneers are often an excellent solution for people wanting a brighter smile since they can be made in almost any color. They are also stain-resistant and can last many years when properly cared for. Caring for your dental veneers requires the same brushing and flossing routine as your natural teeth. Regular checkups with your dentist will ensure your dental health is good and your veneers stay strong and healthy.
The Procedure for Dental Veneers
To prepare for veneers, your dentist will begin by removing a small layer of enamel from the front surface of your tooth. The tooth is then cleaned and prepared so the veneer can be placed on top. Your dentist will take an impression of the prepped tooth so the veneer can be custom-made to fit your tooth perfectly. It typically takes around two weeks for the custom veneers to be made by a laboratory technician. After your custom-made veneers are made, you will return to our office to bond them to your tooth.
The Advantages of Dental Veneers
Veneers are designed to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, size, and translucency of your existing teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile. Porcelain veneers, in particular, have a lifelike appearance and can reflect light similar to natural tooth enamel.
Durable and Long-lasting
Dental veneers are made from durable materials, such as porcelain or composite resin, which can withstand normal biting and chewing forces. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last for many years, improving your smile.
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains and discoloration, making them an ideal option for individuals with staining or discoloration that cannot be effectively treated with teeth whitening procedures. With veneers, you can enjoy a bright and stain-resistant smile.
Dental veneers can have a significant impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem. By enhancing the appearance of your smile and correcting dental imperfections, veneers can help you feel more confident in social and professional situations.
