What can veneers do for me?
Dental veneers fit onto the surface of the teeth to cover them and change their appearance. While a veneer can completely change the appearance of the tooth, it can also only change certain things, like the length or width or color of the tooth. Additionally, a veneer can repair cracks or chips in a tooth or even out a too-long, too-short, or pointy tooth. Veneers are a powerful cosmetic tool which, with help from your dentist, can renew your smile and help you feel as great as you look.
How does the procedure for veneers work?
Your dentist will most likely require several visits to properly design, create, and place your new veneers. You will need one appointment to consult with your dentist about your expectations and results and determine if this is the best procedure for your teeth. Your dentist may begin the preparation process at this visit, preparing the teeth to receive the veneers by removing a super-thin layer of enamel from their surfaces. If necessary, your dentist will place temporary veneers after taking an impression of the mouth. This ensures a natural look and strong bond between restoration and tooth. At a follow-up appointment, your dentist will remove any temporary veneers and fit and permanently place the final restorations onto your teeth.
