Do you have one or two front teeth that are chipped? This might be a quick and easy way to get the beautiful smile of your dreams!
Veneers are a cosmetic device, (a “shell” often made of porcelain or composite), dentists attach to your teeth to cover the front of your teeth. Dental veneers can provide a beautiful, healthy-looking smile in one appointment.
Maybe your front teeth are not significantly damaged but have some imperfections that make you feel self-conscious. Veneers can provide a cosmetic lift that can last for up to 15 years.
You may want to ask about different types of veneers for your pearly whites if you suffer from:
If you are interested in getting a perfect smile with veneers, first, set up a consultation appointment with your cosmetic dentist to talk over your options. Decide how many veneers you want—just front teeth veneers or full mouth veneers.
Your dentist helps you determine the best type of veneers that are right for you. They match the shade so it is tooth-colored and looks the same as your natural teeth. The dentist examines your teeth and makes x-rays to be sure there aren’t any significant underlying problems. They’ll talk about correcting them if necessary.
At your next visit to the dental office, the dentist trims a thin film from your tooth surface then makes an impression of your teeth using a mold or map your tooth using a 3D laser scanner. You may receive temporary veneers at this point if you will be receiving porcelain veneers. If you choose composite veneers, you may receive them at this visit.
After a week or two, your veneers are ready for placement. At your third appointment, the dentist or hygienist completely cleans your teeth. What happens next depends on the type of veneers you choose.
