At Dental Excellence we often treat patients who have a variety of dental concerns. Some visit our offices because their tooth has been broken while others are looking to create a Hollywood smile. Most people are candidates to receive dental veneers as long as their tooth structure and roots are in place. If, however, you have a cavity or gum disease this will need to be treated before the procedure is completed.
What is a Dental Veneer?
A veneer is a thin shell that is made out of porcelain or ceramic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size will be made to match your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly.
How is a Dental Veneer Used?
We can accomplish a variety of things using dental veneers. By placing them on top of the teeth, we can close gaps, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains and create a uniform looking smile. In this way, veneers can create a smile that rivals the most famous Hollywood stars. In fact, many of them have had this procedure to create the smile you see today.
We also use dental veneers for restorations. When teeth become cracked, chipped or broken, a veneer can be used to restore the tooth to its full functionality. As long as the tooth structure is intact, it is an excellent way to restore the appearance of a tooth while making it possible to eat and speak without feeling any discomfort.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
This procedure is an excellent solution because veneers can be used to transform your smile into one that looks perfect and beautiful. It does so, while still using your natural teeth, so there is no need for surgery, and the recovery time is reduced. Since the veneers are made to match your other teeth, they will look natural, and no one will be able to tell that you had any cosmetic dentistry work completed. Another benefit is that they are made out of a stain resistant material. This means that your teeth will stay whiter and brighter, even if your favorite beverage is a hot cup of coffee.
As with most cosmetic procedures, there can be some discomfort associated with getting dental veneers installed. This is to be expected, however, we do our best to keep patients completely comfortable during the procedure so that you will not experience any pain while the veneers are being placed or your teeth are being prepared. The process can take several weeks so there will be a period where you need to be careful about what you eat and what activities you engage in. In other words, don’t play football after getting temporary veneers placed onto your teeth.
