UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF DENTAL VENEERS
Veneers are tooth-shaped dental prostheses designed to fit around and cover the front surfaces of your incisors and canines (front teeth). Typically, they are made of porcelain in order to match the color of your enamel perfectly, ensuring a natural appearance.
Veneers can be used to correct almost any cosmetic issue. They commonly fill gaps, cover severe stains, and disguise crooked, misshapen, or chipped teeth. They’re very durable, easily lasting 15+ years, and require very little special care. We recommend you see Dr. Shaggy for a consultation every six months to have your teeth and veneers examined and cleaned.
THE VENEERS PROCESS
The veneer placement process typically takes three appointments over a span of several weeks. First, you’ll see Dr. Shaggy for an initial consultation. If she approves you for veneers, she will begin creating your veneer treatment plan.
At your second appointment, Dr. Shaggy will create a mockup to show you how your new smile will look. She will take impressions and images of your teeth and prepare your enamel to receive the veneer. The impressions and images will be sent to an outside dental lab, where your veneers will be built. You will be sent home with a set of temporary veneers in the meantime.
Your third and final appointment will take place about 2-3 weeks later, when your permanent veneers arrive at MODERN BITE DENTISTRY. Dr. Shaggy will check the veneers to make sure they fit perfectly, then bond them permanently into place.
THE RIGHT OPTION FOR YOU
If you have multiple cosmetic issues with your smile, but your mouth is free of any major damage or disease, you’re likely a good candidate for veneers. Find out now by scheduling an appointment at MODERN BITE DENTISTRY.
VENEERS VS. LUMINEERS
Veneers and Lumineers are identical in function, with one exception. While veneers are about 0.5mm in thickness, Lumineers are made of a thin, proprietary ceramic material that’s only about 0.2mm thick.
This means that Lumineers can often be placed without removing any natural enamel. For this reason, Lumineers are often called “no-prep” or “minimal-prep” veneers. This also means the treatment can be reversed, which is not true of traditional veneers.
