Veneers are one of the simplest dental restorations that are used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. They are wafer-thin restorations made from dental-grade ceramic and resemble the frontal contour of the teeth. Veneers will be bonded to the teeth using dental adhesives, and the procedure can be completed in a quick span.
What are Veneers used for?
Dental veneers can be used to treat the following oral conditions:
Chipping: Teeth that are chipped or naturally misshapen can be brought back to their ideal contour using dental veneers.
Cracked teeth: When teeth develop cracks due to biting anything too hard or due to external trauma, we can restore them using dental veneers.
Extreme discoloration: Teeth that are extremely stained and can’t be whitened using teeth whitening solutions can be beautified using veneers.
Exposed root surfaces: Teeth that have undergone a receding gum line can be protected using dental veneers.
Extreme wear: Teeth that have their biting surface worn out can be brought back to their ideal contour using veneers.
What are the Advantages of Choosing Dental Veneers?
- Veneers are either made from dental-grade ceramic or composite resin, both of which are biocompatible materials and do not cause any adverse reactions to the teeth or gums.
- They can be customized to match the exact aesthetics of the natural teeth to keep them indistinguishable from the adjoining teeth.
- Veneers strengthen the structure of the teeth and keep them from undergoing further damage.
- They are extremely durable and long-lasting despite their thin structure.
- Veneers can be bonded to the teeth in one or two visits to the dentist’s practice, making the process very convenient.
- They offer an excellent fit and would feel very comfortable in the mouth.
How are Dental Veneers Bonded?
When you visit us for the initial consultation, our team of dental experts will conduct a thorough diagnosis of the tooth requiring the veneer. We will take an x-ray and digital scans of the tooth and use the same to create a digital impression. The same will be shared with a dental laboratory, where the veneer will be fabricated. Meanwhile, we will place a temporary veneer on the tooth to protect its prepared surface.
During the next consultation, we will remove the temporary veneer and clean the tooth. It will be etched using an etching solution, which is done to roughen the surface of the tooth and allow it to adhere well to the veneer. Dental adhesives will be used to bond the veneer, which will be hardened using a curing light. We will then polish the veneer to enhance its aesthetics.
We request you to schedule a consultation with our team of dental experts to get all your oral concerns addressed at the earliest. Please call us at (602) 237-7878 or reach out through online consultation, and we’ll be happy to help.
