What are veneers?
Veneers are a dental prosthesis made from very thin, durable porcelain. They are designed and custom-made for each patient to cover up the entire front surface of your tooth to treat a variety of imperfections. Veneers can treat almost any cosmetic flaw, including gaps in your smile, misshapen teeth, slightly-crooked teeth, and teeth with minor chips.
However, veneers do have some limitations. They cannot be used to repair or cover up damaged teeth, and should not be used if you have more serious orthodontic issues, like an unhealthy bite or very crooked teeth.
Understanding The Veneer Placement Process
After you’ve consulted with Dr. Saleki and have been approved for treatment, the process typically takes two appointments. At your first appointment, your mouth will be cleaned, and then a small amount of enamel will be removed to make sure the veneer has a completely seamless fit.
Then, images and molds of your teeth will be taken, and you will be sent home with a set of temporary veneers. Dr. Saleki will work closely with a dental lab to create your veneers, based on the images and molds of your teeth. This process usually takes about 2-3 weeks.
Once your veneers have been completed and have arrived at our office, you’ll come in for your next appointment. Your teeth will be cleaned, and each veneer will be checked for proper fit and finish, before being bonded into place with dental cement. Finally, your veneers will be buffed and polished. You’ll leave our office with a fresh, new smile when the procedure is complete!
The benefit of Veneers
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because they have a number of great benefits and advantages:
- Minimally-invasive – Only a small amount of enamel must be removed from each tooth, and there is no complex or invasive surgery required to place veneers.
- No special care required – Veneers don’t require any special care. As long as you brush and floss properly, see Dr. Saleki for check-ups every 6 months, and avoid doing things like chewing hard foods (ice, almonds, etc.) or non-food items (pens, fingernails, pencils) with your veneers, they’ll last for years to come.
- Completely natural look and feel – Veneers look totally natural to others, and they feel just like your natural teeth.
