A veneer is a tooth covering that is made of thin, tooth-colored porcelain or composite laminate. You can use veneers to rectify a variety of cosmetic and functional dental issues, such as:
You can cover any number of teeth with dental veneers, from one to all of them. If you're only covering a few teeth with veneers, you might also want a teeth-whitening treatment for the rest of your teeth to make them all look sparkling white and healthy.
Dental veneers allow you to keep your natural teeth while improving the look of your smile. Dental veneers are stain-resistant, though you must brush and floss after every meal and see your Midtown Dental Care dentist twice a year to maintain your oral health.
Dental veneers are a permanent solution to aesthetic dental issues. You can even use veneers in the place of orthodontics, in some cases.
Your dentist must sand 1/2 mm off the surface of your enamel to create a surface that’s porous enough to accept the bonding. After the enamel has been filed down, you must keep it covered with veneers. In other words, dental veneers are a lifelong commitment, so you must be sure you want them.
Also, while veneers are long-lasting, many need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. However, with proper care, dental veneers may even last a lifetime.
Your journey to a more beautiful, confident smile with dental veneers begins with a consultation at Midtown Dental Care. Your dentist examines your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
If you have decayed or missing teeth, infected teeth or gums, or any other functional issue, your dentist resolves these before moving on to the veneer process.
Once your teeth and gums are healthy, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth. A lab then creates custom-designed veneers based on your teeth and your desires. You even decide how white you want your new smile to be.
Veneers usually require three appointments, including the consultation and fitting. When you’re ready for veneers, call Midtown Dental Care or book an appointment online.
