Veneers - Used to Protect and Improve the Appearance of a Tooth

If you have a discolored, uneven, or chipped tooth, dental veneers can not only improve your smile but also help you achieve a celebrity smile that is designed to last up to 20 years. Getting a veneer may require you to schedule a few visits to the dentist office. Your visits may consist of a consultation and two additional visits to make the cosmetic device. This type of treatment is usually used for:

• Teeth that is broken or chipped
• Teeth that are worn
• Teeth that is uneven, misaligned, or misshapen such as those that have bulges or crater in them
• Teeth that have gaps between them

The first step in the process of getting a dental veneer may include an active participation by you as you explain to the doctor the outcome you desire to achieve. The diagnosis and treatment planning will include your doctor doing an examination of your teeth to ensure this treatment is appropriate for you and they will discuss the limitations and what will be involved in the procedure.

The next portion of your treatment will includes preparation where your dentist will take away around half a millimeter of enamel from the surface of your tooth cemented to the tooth; which is close in size to the veneers' thickness. Your doctor will make an impression or model of your tooth, which will be sent to a dental lab in order to make your veneer. It may take up to one to two weeks for your dentist to get the veneers from the lab. Prior to the veneers being permanently cemented to the teeth, your dentist will place it on your tooth temporarily to check its color and fit. When your bonding process is complete, your doctor may ask you to come back for a follow up in a few weeks to exam how your gums have responded to the veneer's placement.

If you think that dental veneers are right to address any need in your mouth you may have, call and schedule an initial consultation and let the dentist evaluate the current state of your teeth in order to help create a customized treatment plan that will make your smile whiter, brighter, and straighter. You may find that veneers can be a good option for you, when through your consultation your dentist discusses any concerns and questions you may have.

With a call to a professional dental office, you can also get information concerning a wide range of cosmetic and oral healthcare procedure. This dental office may provide additional services to include bridges, sealants, implants, crowns, and much more. All of these procedures are designed to improve.
