Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual teeth to ensure flawless results. Then, an experienced cosmetic dentist at Blakeney Dental bonds the veneers to your current teeth. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They also help strengthen frail teeth.
Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the dental team members reviews your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.
The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you come back for a second appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where technicians will make your custom veneers.
When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dental expert uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!
Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:
