What are Veneers?
Veneers are small shells that cover the surface of your teeth to create a brand new smile. Each shell is made out of porcelain or a composite resin. We make the veneers to your exact measurements and specifications. That way, no one will ever know that you have veneers. Your smile will look completely natural and give you that boost in confidence that you are looking for.
Veneers can correct several different features of your smile, including:
- Chips and breaks
- Discoloration and stains
- Lengthen teeth
- Correct gaps
The veneers procedure is less invasive than some of our other options. There is no surgery involved or recovery time; it is an excellent option for those looking to change their smile quickly.
Different Kinds of Veneers
There are different veneers available, but the most common are porcelain and composite resin. Porcelain veneers are extremely popular because porcelain looks completely natural in your mouth. It is a safe material for all patients and will result in a seamless, Hollywood smile. Porcelain veneers require some shaving down on your teeth’s enamel. We do this to make room for the veneers to fit perfectly.
Composite resin veneers are also a great option. They can create your desired results as well. Composite resin veneers will also require some etching on the enamel’s surface, but not as much as porcelain does. There are multiple layers to composite resin veneers, and sometimes it can take multiple layers to achieve your desired results. All of us at Thornton Dental are here to help you decide what type of veneer would suit you best.
Before the official process of veneers can begin, the dentist needs to be sure that your teeth are healthy enough to hold the veneers. Before starting the procedure, we will look for any sign of tooth decay, gum disease, root canals, etc. This is a permanent process, so it’s crucial to have everything healthy and strong.
The dentist will then begin shaving down part of the enamel of your teeth, buffing and thoroughly cleaning them. The shaving should not cause any pain. However, if you are nervous, you can ask about the different sedative options. We will then take a scan of your teeth and send them to a lab to make the veneers.
Later, we will call you back to the office to place the veneers. We will cement each veneer in place and use a dental ultraviolet light to cure them. Once they are solidified, they are ready to use! It may feel weird at first, but that feeling will soon pass, and it will feel completely natural.
