Made from durable porcelain or resin-composite materials, dental veneers are thin shells placed on the front of your teeth that can resolve many types of tooth imperfections, so you can have a movie star smile. During your veneers treatment, your dentist carefully removes a minuscule amount of tooth enamel. This step ensures your new veneers are able to rest flat against your teeth.
After making a series of impressions, your dentist forwards your smile design plan to the dental lab, where a technician fabricates your new set of veneers. Once your veneers are complete, your dentist schedules you for a visit to bond them into place over your teeth one by one.
While you can get veneers on any of your teeth, treating your top front eight teeth is most common. But you can also get a veneer on just one tooth if it’s broken or damaged.
Because veneers entirely cover the visible portion of your teeth, they can resolve any blemish that makes you feel uncomfortable about your smile. The expert cosmetic dentists at Grace Dental Group recommend veneers to treat any of the following issues (to name a few):
Veneers can also make your teeth appear straighter. In any case, your veneers treatment plan from Grace Dental Group is entirely personalized to you, so your dentist can resolve any concerns you may have.
You should care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth. Veneers don’t decay, deteriorate, or even stain. But you can still develop cavities and other issues in your underlying teeth, which can cause veneers to break or fall off.
The caring dentists at Grace Dental Group spend time teaching you how to properly care for your veneers. Not only is it important to brush and floss every day, there are also certain foods you’re probably going to want to avoid or limit (such as hard bread or tough meat). The team also schedules you for twice-a-year exams and cleanings to ensure your teeth are healthy and free of decay.
