Veneers are tooth-shaped, wafer-thin shells made using highly durable porcelain material. They are placed on the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and to enhance the appearance of your smile. Veneers are custom-made according to the shape and color of your natural teeth. At Complete Family Dentistry, we offer high-quality porcelain veneers as well as EMAX brand veneers.
The use of veneers can treat a number of dental conditions such as:
- Misshapen teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped or worn teeth
- Severely stained or discolored teeth
- Unwanted or uneven spaces between the teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
The advantages of using porcelain veneers include:
- Resistant to stains and discoloration
- They give a natural appearance to the tooth.
- The shade can be chosen to match your natural teeth color
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
The procedure of installing veneers is as follows:
The tooth is prepared by removing a very small amount of the enamel to allow for the thickness of the veneer. An impression of the tooth is taken and sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneer is made. A temporary restoration is placed on the tooth until then. Once the veneer is ready, we check if the fit is proper and if the color matches that of your natural teeth. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth using a special dental cement, and the bond is hardened using a curing light.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may need replacement. But they are highly durable and will last for many years, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
