Quick Answers to Your Questions About Dental Veneers

Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental veneers are extremely thin, shell-like coverings that are bonded to the front surface of natural teeth to enhance appearance. They can be used to change the shape, length, width, and color of teeth. Teeth veneers may be created from either porcelain or resin composite materials. Both types of veneers have their own benefits. While resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of the natural tooth surface, porcelain dental veneers are more stain-resistant, and reflect light more like natural teeth. A variety of factors influence the choice of material for teeth veneers. Your dentist in Waldorf can determine which type of veneer is best for your smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers can correct a number of common aesthetic dental problems. Many patients who have discoloration from root canals, food and drug stains, resin fillings, or excessive fluoride exposure can enjoy the beautiful teeth veneers create. Other good candidates are patients with worn, cracked, or chipped teeth. A veneer can sometimes correct teeth that are uneven or misaligned or even close gaps between teeth.

What is the Procedure for Placing Teeth Veneers?

Before placing dental veneers, x-rays or impressions of your teeth may be needed. Once a treatment plan has been developed, your dentist in Waldorf will prepare your teeth and apply the veneer material. A small portion of each tooth surface equal to the thickness of the veneer will be removed. Your dentist will then make impressions of the teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where your dental veneers will be created. When the lab returns your veneers, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments so that they perfectly match your tooth size, shape, and color. After your natural teeth are cleaned, polished, and roughened to help create a strong bond, the veneers will be attached with special light-activated cement. Finally, excess cement will be removed and any final adjustments made. You may be asked to return for a follow-up visit to check the fit of your dental veneers.

Most veneer placements go smoothly, but if you are concerned or have specific questions, talk to your dentist.
