Veneers are strong, natural looking and stain resistant facings, which can be made to restore broken, discolored, worn and damaged tooth. Veneers are usually made of porcelain and can actually strengthen tooth structure by bonding and laminating. Veneers also help to straighten out those teeth, which have some crookedness or twisting.
We encourage our patients to take active role in their smiles makeovers. You may look over various pictures online or in magazines to “plan” your smile and define the main aspects of the perfect smile you want. Be sure to discuss all the details with the doctor. He will inform you on the possibilities of the procedure and expected final result.
The procedure of smile makeover with the help of veneers generally takes two visits. During the first visit, doctor will create a customized treatment plan for you, shape you teeth and create temporary veneers.
On the second visit, the permanent stain-resistant veneers will be applied to your teeth. Every veneer is checked if it fits your tooth and matches it in shade or color. Once special cement is applied between the veneer and tooth, a light beam will harden the cement, drastically improving your smile. Veneers mask discolorations of the teeth and at the same time can serve as orthodontic alternative to straighten teeth for people who don’t want to go through long-term braces.
