What are Veneers?
Veneers fit over the surface of the teeth. They’re extremely thin and custom-crafted to suit your individual needs. The protective shell provided by the veneer looks and feels just like your real teeth — only better! You might also hear them referred to as “porcelain veneers” or “porcelain laminates” because of the material from which they’re made. Although veneers can be made from composite resin, porcelain is preferred by many because it is stain-resistant and looks more natural. However, some patients may do better with resin veneers because they’re thinner — so consult with your dentist to find out which material is best for you.
The Advantages of Veneers
There are a number of advantages associated with dental veneers. Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider veneers:
- They look and feel like natural teeth
- Porcelain veneers resist stains
- Gum tissue is tolerant of porcelain veneers
- Veneers can hide difficult stains
They can cover misshapen, uneven and slightly crooked teeth for an aesthetic smile
As you can see, there are lots of good reasons to choose veneers. You won’t believe the striking difference high-quality veneers can make in your appearance. By improving your smile, you can give yourself a whole new look and even appear younger and more vibrant.
How Veneers Are Placed
The first step when it comes to getting veneers is the consultation. Dr. Rasi will talk to you about your smile goals and help you decide if veneers are best for you. During the consultation, imaging may be done and teeth will be examined to ensure you’re a good candidate for this procedure. From there, teeth are prepped and an additional appointment is made to deliver the veneers. The veneers are bonded onto the natural teeth with a light-activated cement. Your veneers will be examined a few weeks after they’re placed to ensure they fit perfectly.
