Dental veneers are custom-made ultra-thin shells of ceramic material. They are considered a cosmetic procedure because they improve the appearance of teeth that may be chipped, discolored, misaligned, uneven, worn or abnormally spaced. The professional team at Gables Exceptional Dentistry is experienced at designing veneers to create a natural smile that gives you beautifully aligned, cosmetically pleasing teeth.
Dental veneers are not only designed to make unattractive teeth look better, but they are also made to be functional as well. They can be used to improve worn enamel, unsightly wear and tear, heavy stains and enamel malformations to give patients a new attractive smile. Additionally, veneers can eliminate the need for more uncomfortable procedures such as the need for a dental crown. The thin nature of veneers requires minimal amounts of tooth reshaping to bond them to the tooth.
Veneers typically take three office visits to complete: the initial consultation, preparation, and application.
Initial Consultation- Before a decision is made to place veneers, your Gables Exceptional Dentistry dentist will perform a detailed examination and evaluation of your existing condition to make sure veneers are right for you. X-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth will also need to be taken to help design your customized veneers.
Preparation- Once you and your dentist have agreed on your new smile design, the dentist will prepare the appropriate teeth. You will receive provisional veneers with your new smile design and chosen tooth color, which will be bonded to the teeth for approximately two weeks.
Application- On your third and final visit, you will receive your finely crafted ceramic veneers and start enjoying your new, confident, smile!
