Veneers are a versatile cosmetic service for dentists. They can used to fix a number of teeth issues, including stained or discolored teeth, cracked, misaligned or chipped teeth, or spaces and gaps between teeth.
A veneer's thin ceramic shell is molded and custom fit before it is attached to a patient's existing tooth structure.
The process will take 2 or 3 visits to your dentist. The initial visit is a discussion between dentist and patient that will determine the shape and look of the veneer. Once a plan is in place, the teeth will be carefully prepared. An impression is taken of the existing teeth, which is then sent to our dental lab for fabrication.
The fabrication process takes another 2 to 3 weeks. While the veneer is being prepared, the patient will wear a temporary veneer. When the new veneer is ready, it will be bonded in place to ensure a bright, new smile for years.
