Dental Teeth Veneers
Your teeth are a major player in the quality of your smile and are quite often the very first thing that others see. Imperfections in the teeth, even minor flaws, can have a serious negative impact on your smile and can cause your confidence to plummet. When you are self-conscious about your smile, you are more likely to hide it from those around you. Constantly covering your mouth with your hand not only gets tiring, but it can also leave the wrong impression. At Neu Family Dental, we can help to restore the appearance of minorly damaged teeth, giving you back your beautiful smile, with veneers.
What Are Veneers?
Even tiny imperfections in your teeth can significantly affect their appearance and the appearance of your smile. Veneers are a solution for addressing these imperfections and giving you back your beautiful smile. They are thin shell-like restorations that are designed to fit over the front surfaces of those teeth visible in your smile, covering over those imperfections and rendering them invisible.
Veneers are typically made from one of two materials, composite resin or porcelain. Both of these materials can be made to match the color of your natural teeth. However, porcelain is often the preferred material. This is because not only does porcelain perfectly mimic the color of your natural enamel, it also imitates the way that enamel reflects light. Porcelain is also stronger than composite resin. It lasts longer and can stand up to more use.
What Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers can be used to correct several different minor dental flaws.
Why Get Veneers?
There are several benefits to the use of veneers, including:
How Are Veneers Placed?
Veneers take two appointments to place, and these appointments are two weeks apart. At the first appointment, we prepare the affected teeth and take impressions. Preparing the teeth involves the removal of a small amount of enamel from each tooth, which is done to create the space necessary for the veneers to fit naturally in with the rest of your teeth. This process is done under a local anesthetic, which will help to avoid any discomfort. After the teeth have been prepared, the impressions are taken. These impressions are sent to a dental lab, where the veneers are created based on the exact specifications of your mouth. When they are ready, you come back for your second appointment. During this visit, we check the veneers to make sure that they look natural and feel comfortable. If everything looks good, we affix the veneers in place using a special bonding agent. Once securely in place, your veneers can be used just like you would use your natural teeth.
With veneers, you will finally be able to smile freely without feeling the need to hide your teeth from the world. Call Neu Family Dental today to schedule your consultation and find out if veneers are right for you at (847) 230-9143.
