Dental veneers are a great option for people who have chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth, as well as those who have gaps between their teeth.
Dental veneers are thin covers of porcelain or composite resin that adhere to the front of teeth to give them a more classic look. One applied, veneers feel and function just like natural teeth.
If you’re getting veneers, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of your teeth. This is to ensure the veneer doesn’t obstruct your bite when the porcelain is laid on top of the tooth. From there, your dentist will make an impression of the prepared teeth and send the information to a dental lab where your custom veneers will be created. At your next appointment, your dentist will place the veneers on your teeth and check the shape to ensure a proper fit
Veneers can be put on just one teeth or many, depending on your unique needs. It’s important to discuss your ultimate goals with your dentist so she can help you plan a strategy that works best, ensuring the color and shape of each veneer are consistent and beautiful.
Before you get veneers :
- Your teeth and gums must be healthy. Your dentist will treat any disease or decay before the process begins
- Talk to your dentist about possible risks if you clench your teeth. Although veneers are very strong, they can chip or crack when put under extreme pressure, particularly when they’re exposed to clench teeth night after night. You might consider wearing a mouth guard to help prevent serious damage to your veneers.
- Understand that the process of removing the enamel cannot be undone. Your dentist is only going to remove a little bit of your teeth’s enamel, but it’s important to understand that this process is permanent once it’s been done.
