How do you feel about your smile? If you have stained or chipped teeth, you probably hope to find a way to create a nicer smile. For millions of people, dental veneers do just that.
Dental veneers, which are sometimes referred to as porcelain veneers, are designed to cover the surface of your teeth. They are custom-made to your mouth, bond to the front of your teeth and can be made to your specifications for shape, size, color and length.
The first step to getting dental veneers is to talk to your dentist. He or she will help you determine if veneers will fit your needs. Should you go on with the procedure, your dentist trims the enamel to make room for the veneers and then creates models of your teeth. In 2-4 weeks, the veneers come back to your dentist, who then places a temporary bond to examine fit and color. Once a perfect fit is accomplished, he or she will permanently bond the veneer in place. A follow-up visit is typically required a couple of weeks later to ensure the procedure was a success.
How Veneers Help
Veneers help in several ways. They fix discolored and worn down teeth as well as those that are chipped or broken. However, they are also commonly used for fixing misaligned or uneven smiles due to gaps in the teeth or irregularly shaped teeth.
