Veneers can solve all kinds of cosmetic dental problems. Are you struggling with a stained tooth that stands out from the others? You might benefit from a veneer. Are you unhappy with a chipped tooth? Veneers could be the answer!
At Paladin Dental, we are committed to giving you the smile you want regardless of what technique it takes. But if you have individual teeth with aesthetic flaws, large or small, there’s a good chance that veneers will be able to help.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are very thin layers of ceramic or composite resin materials that are placed on top of your natural teeth for protection and restoration. These veneers match the color of your natural teeth and make it possible to:
- Conceal stains.
- Cover chips.
- Fill in gaps.
- Reshape teeth that are too small.
Despite their thinness, these veneers are extremely hard and durable, just like your real teeth. They are also permanently bonded to your teeth, so you won’t have to worry about treating these veneers any differently from your natural teeth.
What Is the Process of Receiving Veneers?
If your dentist agrees that veneers are the right choice for you, the first step is to take a mold of the tooth or teeth in question, so your veneer will fit perfectly to your smile.
Next, your dentist will remove a small amount of the outermost layer of the tooth that will be receiving the veneer. This is done so your teeth aren’t uncomfortably thick after the extra layer of the veneer is placed. At the end of the procedure, your teeth won’t be any noticeably thicker (or thinner!) than before.
Finally the veneers are placed, using a permanent bonding method. After the bonding is complete, you’re ready to enjoy your new smile!
