Dental Veneers – Putting Your Best Face Forward

dental-veneersYou know those megawatt celebrity smiles that grace the front of magazine covers? If the celeb’s teeth look perfectly sized, wonderfully white, and evenly aligned, they may be veneers. Dental veneers are hot right now, and with good reason. They make stained or discolored teeth look brighter. They hide any imperfections, like broken or cracked teeth. They can make tiny teeth bigger, and align slightly crooked teeth without orthodontics.

Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or a resin composite that are permanently bonded to the teeth, covering the teeth underneath. Porcelain veneers are most popular, as they have the translucent look of real teeth and tend to resist stains better than resin.

A Simple Procedure with Immediate Results

To have veneers applied, you’ll typically go through a three-step process:

  1. You’ll consult with your dentist. Veneers are custom-designed to look as natural as possible, so your dentist may take impressions and/or X-rays in order to determine the right size and color of your veneers.
  2. Your dentist will prepare your teeth for veneers by removing a very small amount of enamel from your teeth, making an impression of the teeth, and sending that to a dental lab where they will create your veneers.
  3. Once the lab sends back the veneers, your dentist will bond them to your teeth using light-sensitive resin, hardening the resin with a special light that causes a chemical reaction. Your smile will be beautiful, immediately.
