Veneers are common restorations used by patients who are interested in rejuvenating the appearance of their smile. There are several reasons patients may consider veneers, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked and misaligned teeth
- Teeth that are unusually shaped
- Broken, worn, or chipped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
When there are one or more teeth within the smile that do not enhance the natural beauty and negatively affect the appearance, veneers may be the best solution. These thin, durable restorations are made of ceramic and are bonded over the front of the natural teeth to change their look. They are not permanent and may need replacement over the years, but with proper care, they can give patients many years of improvement for a beautiful, stunning smile.
The entire process of the placement of veneers will usually require two visits. During the first appointment, the teeth are prepared for the veneers. This requires the buffing and shaping of the front of the tooth’s surface to prepare them for the thickness of the veneers. This keeps the veneers from adding bulk to the smile. Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken and these molds are sent to outside ceramists for the fabrication of the new restorations. Temporary veneers are fabricated to ensure the patient is presentable until the permanent veneers are made. Within a few weeks, the new veneers are delivered to the dental practice for permanent placement.
