To give you what you’re looking for, our dentist is happy to give you answers to commonly asked questions about dental veneers. Those questions are:
Q: What are dental veneers?
A: Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are made of porcelain and made in a dental lab. They are custom made for your smile and they are designed to cover the front surfaces of unattractive teeth.
Q: How can dental veneers help me?
A: They can improve the appearance of an unattractive tooth, enhance the entire appearance of the smile, help teeth that are discolored, help teeth that are worn down, help close gaps between teeth, help chipped or broken teeth and help teeth that are irregularly shaped or misaligned.
Q: What are the treatment steps involved?
A: Your dentist will numb the mouth and then will prepare the tooth receiving the veneer. To do so, he will shave a portion of the tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. Then, he will take impressions of the smile and will send those impressions to a dental lab where technicians will create your veneer. When they are ready, the technicians will send the veneer to our office and your dentist will cement it over the tooth.
