What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic covering for your teeth. They can make your teeth look almost perfect while maintaining a completely natural look that mimics your natural teeth. Veneers are often made of porcelain, but they may also be made of a composite material. In both cases, the look of the veneers is very natural. No one will be able to tell that you are wearing veneers.

How are Veneers Applied?

When you get veneers in Sunset Hills, your dentist will carefully measure your teeth to ensure that the veneers are a good fit. The dentist then sends those measurements to a dental lab, where the veneers are manufactured. When they arrive, you’ll be contacted to come back to have the veneers applied.

The process of getting veneers is completely painless and non-invasive. The dentist prepares the surface of your teeth so that the veneers can adhere better. The dentist then applies a dental bonding material and applies the veneers, one by one, on your teeth. Then a special light lamp will be used to “set” the veneers. The time it takes for the entire treatment depends on how many veneers you choose to get.

How Veneers Improve Your Smile

Veneers cover up flaws in your teeth. If you have permanently discolored teeth, cracked teeth, gaps, or crooked teeth, veneers can cover up those imperfections. Your smile will be beautiful and natural-looking.

Veneers can last decades, depending on how well you care for them. Talk to your Sunset Hills dentist today about whether veneers are right for you.
